Podcast Cover Episode 41 "How to avoid running your photography business as a charity"

What we talk about in this episode:

  • Why price for your needs and wants.
  • How higher prices sustain the market.
  • How low prices are hurting you. And everyone else.
  • Why higher prices are a good thing for everyone around you.

Key takeaways

Reasons to raise your prices

  • You’ll have more time. TIME to spend how you want. Because you have to work less, to get enough money in. Your family benefits from more quality time, and you get more relaxation. 
  • You’ll have more money. You can spend it on your community. You can invest in learning. Maybe get a housekeeper or hire a food service (giving you more time).
  • You’ll afford to grow your business. You will have the time and money to invest back into your business. This is essential for long-term success.
  • You’ll create a better client experience. Because you need fewer clients, you can make each experience more special. You will have happier clients. This means more positive reviews and referrals. 
  • You’ll encourage your colleagues to increase their prices too. When you set prices that sustain you, others can do the same.

This podcast is all about education and inspiration for photographers. A sustainable business is profitable and lasting.

The goal of this podcast is that it will help you build and structure your business around your life, instead of the other way around.
