Many creative professionals give away their strategic services because it’s intangible and you don’t know how to account for it when you price a project. Tiered pricing is a technique that will ensure you get paid for everything you do. In this week’s podcast interview, time lapse filmmaker, Michael e. Stern, shows us how he breaks down his process so we can see how much actually goes into a project. To learn how to use tiered pricing, check out Marketing Mentor’s Tiered Pricing Kit: How to Earn More on Every Project, which you can find (probably on sale) in the Shop at Marketing-Mentor.com.
