How I created a simple pricing process that removed stress and boosted profits – Graphic Design Blender

Pricing is super-hard. You’re thrilled that someone wants to hire you, and then you obsess over creating a proposal.

And before you even get to the panicky part about what the client will think about the final numbers, you have to actually determine what final number feels right to you.

For longer than I’d like to admit, I sort of just picked a number that sounded good to me without a ton of justification. Sure, I kind of did a half-hearted breakdown of design + project management, but if a client had really pressed about why X cost $Y, I wouldn’t have had a great answer. Heck, I wouldn’t have even had a good answer.

And negotiations…ugh. That process took forever because I wasn’t willing to negotiate on the fly (because I was doing so much guessing), so I needed a day or two to “go over the numbers” or risk being exposed by making nonsensical adjustments.

I knew I needed to make pricing a process
