I have decided to trial a FLEXIBLE-PRICING strategy for my spreadsheet - basically pay what you want. Read through to the end and then you decide how much to pay.
One of the hardest things for a crafter to do , is to get to grips with pricing their work.
No doubt you have been sent here for my pricing spreadsheet on the recommendation of others.
If you read the 90 plus comments below, you will see that just those who had the time to leave a message, have found my spreadsheet most useful.
The spreadsheet has now been downloaded over 30,000 times and I am so glad that it has helped so many improve their pricing strategy and they have actually started to earn more as a result.
The spreadsheet and the NEW e-book which explains my pricing concept are now available in my Etsy shop.
SO WHO IS IT FOR?
Crafters, artisans, artists, makers. Whatever you call yourself, if you sell your handmade pieces, then this spreadsheet and the accompanying e-book are just perfect for you. If you want to grow your business, to understand where you are going wrong (and right) with your current pricing, then you are about to make the right decision.
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
How I moved from working at home in my basement with all the spiders, into a small residential shop and then just recenlty into a new larger shop in the middle of the town centre. This was all done on the back of my pricing strategy. I will talk you through the simple concept of pricing your goods in an e-book, along with the famous spreadsheet.
10 years ago, I listed my first item for sale on Ebay. I sold it. I worked from home, using Ebay, later my own personal website to build my business. Everything I have today, is from the efforts of my craft. In short my pricing strategy works.
You'll learn about which of your items makes you money and which doesn't
HOW WILL IT BENEFIT YOU?
Simple. You will be in a position to charge properly for your goods, to eliminatte the lines that don't make you money. You will be well placed to grow your business, as I did from working at home into a business that can support you and indeed, might require you to move into business premises.
SO WHY, THREE YEARS AFTER RELEASING THIS SPREADSHEET, AM I NOW CHARGING FOR IT?
I have created a very worthwhile product that has helped hundreds and hundreds of crafters. I have found other people ripping off my spreadsheet and passing it off as their own work (complete with my spelling mistakes !!!) I have spent a lot of time in the forums listening to feedback.
I have created a spreadsheet that will make you more confident in pricing your goods and should pay you back for your small investment quite easily.
In addition to the spreadsheet, I have also written an e-book that explains the concept thoroughly, which I hope you will find an illuminating read.
THE ONLY QUESTION TO ASK YOURSELF
Do I want to learn Chris's pricing strategy and take my business seriously at a cost of only £15 or should I just continue doing what I have always done?
As mentioned above you can now pay what you want for a trial period.
