Guest Bio:

In August 2009, I was the advocate for hourly billing (ironic now) for a panel discussion on estimating and billing at the FileMaker Developer Conference. Another developer on the panel was an advocate for value pricing. He said, “If you bill by the hour, there is an artificial limit on your income.” My internal reaction was “Hell no!

I spent the next 3 months studying value pricing. Then in November, I made a public commitment on the FileMaker Talk podcast to switch from hourly billing to value pricing with MightyData, my software company. Then I hired a value pricing consultant to help me make the switch.

My first value pricing proposal was for a custom healthcare application. After identifying the value that the project would create for the customer, I doubled the price I would normally have charged and won the business.

Within 12 months, I made the switch to value pricing with all my customers. Our revenue increased by 56% the first year. The next year, our revenue increased by 79%. And, I have never looked back.

  1. This can be a query that often arises with automobile homeowners
    who are able to half methods with a used or undesirable automobile,
    truck or SUV. In every of these situations, there is a eager curiosity in exchanging cars for cash and there are quite
    a few choices that are available to you if you happen to want to do
    just that. The standard method for selling a automotive for cash can be to put an advert within the newspaper,
    take calls from potential consumers, provide take a look
    at drives and inspections and then, hopefully,
    find a cooperative purchaser. In other circumstances, a
    car owner just needs to seek out a quick way to
    get money for his or her car due to a family relocation, demise within the family,
    divorce or an overwhelming series of mechanical problems
    with a vehicle. At instances, this query comes about just because a automobile has handed its prime and it’s simply time for
    one thing new.
