The moment you make a mistake in pricing,
you’re eating into your reputation or your profits.
You want more confidence in your pricing.
Know what your business numbers mean and how to use them to set yourself up for predictable income. Feel more confident in your pricing.
You want marketing and sales to be easier.
Design your creative services based on the needs and desired outcomes of your clients. Align what you offer with what they want to make marketing easier.
You want to understand your value in the market.
Finally understand value and where it comes from, the difference between price and value, and learn how align your price based on that value.
Pricing your creative services can be a huge stumbling block
at any stage of the entrepreneurial journey.
Changes in our economy are causing a lot of creatives to re-think their prices. Many are having to come up with new services and offers.
One thing that hasn't changed is the way our prices can influence our ability to run a profitable business.
There are so many factors to consider - business costs, personal income needs, the perception of value in the market place, client budgets, and the general state of the economy.
Add that to decisions on pricing models like bundling, memberships, or one-to- many. And pricing strategies like micro offers, promotions, and fast action incentives.
It's no wonder most creative services providers feel overwhelmed and confused about how to set prices with confidence.
Join us for live online training, specifically designed for photographers, videographers, writers, and designers.
Designed to simplify the pricing decisions and give you a solid minimum price for profitability for each of your services.
This is the training you need to give you the confidence you want when pricing your creative services.
5 Week LIVE Online Masterclass

Pricing For Creatives Masterclass teaches you how to:
Design Offers That Sell
Design your offers to align with the needs and wants of your ideal client. Get clear on what you include in your packages or day rate and more importantly, WHY. Knowing exactly what you are selling makes pricing with confidence much easier!
Identify Your Value
Finally understand the value that you bring to your clients - beyond the practicality of your deliverables. Identify what makes you unique and what your clients really care about so that your prices truly reflect the difference you make.
Our signature D.A.M.N. Plan Money Worksheet is a colourful, visual tool that does the math for you! In order to calculate profit, we start with your costs - including your desired income and profit to reinvest back into your creative business.
Price Your Services
Pricing your creative services is not as straight forward as plugging in numbers to a formula or looking at someone else's price sheet. Choose your pricing and revenue strategy to leverage your price and position in the market place. You've got this!
Pricing For Creatives is for you if:
- you are a creative freelancer or solopreneur in a service based business
- you are adjusting your packages (offers) and pricing in response to economic changes
- you don't really know (for sure) if your pricing is making a profit
- you consistently hear price objections or get asked for discounts
- you are ready to feel confident with your pricing and know your value
This Masterclass may not be the right fit if:
- you are really new to the business of creativity and haven't served very many clients
- you want someone to just tell you how much to charge instead of doing the work
- you feel like you need support on your business model first (private coaching is available)
- you have a fixed mindset or are currently focused on healing your emotional or mental health
If you are ready to finally feel confident with your pricing, your offers, and the value you bring to the marketplace...
Pricing is the moment of truth – all of marketing strategy comes to focus on the pricing decision.

It finally makes sense.
I've been wanting to set up passive income in my business for years. After using the D.A.M.N. Plan Money worksheet, I was finally able to start planning for this!

Love seeing the profit numbers.
