1. Easy as Pie Pricing Guide

One person is going to win one of Alicia Cain’s Easy as Pie Pricing Guides.

p.s. Alicia was kind enough to let me try it out and I was blown away. It is not just a pricing guide – it’s a huge packet of info to help you get your business set-up the right way. I was surprised at how inspired it left me. I am currently in the process of re-doing all of my pricing thanks to Alicia. She is one gifted gal and the pricing guide is truly worth every penny!

    The biggest pricing obstacle in my business is explaining and securing usage fees for a local market that is not used to paying them.

    When pricing right I always worry that my circle of friends and connections couldn’t afford my prices

    my biggest pricing problem is simply knowing what to charge….i cant shake that “trying to please EVERYONE” voice in my head. I just can’t get the hang of it!

    Allowing myself to charge enough to make it worth the time I spend.

    Angie says:

    My biggest pricing obstacles are the going rates of other photographers in my area – I don’t want to be too high or too low!

    Andrea Lopez says:

    Picking the right prices…Is it better to include a full resolution CD with the session fee or try and charge seperately for prints?

    my biggest pricing fear is that I’m priced too low to attract the clients that value photography.

    Tracy Y.H. says:

    My biggest fear is starting out charging too little and not compensating myself fairly… yet still finding clients willing to pay and having the confidence to charge what I’m worth.

    My biggest pricing fear is that I won’t be able to charge enough to make a decent living.

    Pricing my packages/what to put in packages.

    I feel the hardest part is pricing is to have a fair but competitive price.

    Michelle says:

    My biggest obstacle is knowing what others in my area are charging. I know what my work is worth to me but what’s it worth to others?

    Jada Brock says:

    My biggest pricing fear is not being able to find a middle ground. I’m constantly worried it’s too nigh or too low.

    Stacey Haslem says:

    My pricing fear is that my friends won’t use me. I would rather be priced higher and do fewer sessions. However I think most of my friends wouldn’t fit in there.

    misty Jones says:

    I think my biggest obsticle with pricing is fear. Fear of raising my prices! I am at a happy place with most of my pricing but I still fear raising my session fee. I also struggle with packages and how to sell them.

  31. 731

    My biggest pricing obstacle is making more than a $400 sale. I’m not the cheap photographer and I’m not the expensive one either. I get tons of inquiries but rarely hear anything once I send my pricing off.

  32. 732

    My biggest obstacle hands down is marketing, and time. I have a full time job so I do this as a side job. As a result I do not have a lot of time; however, I also charge ridiculously low rates and work my butt off for not a large return in investment.

    jasonschafer says:

    our biggest obstacle with pricing is feeling confident. I’m never confident that our pricing matches our market. I find many local photogs who charge substantially less and others who are higher. I’m not sure if being in the upper-middle is a good thing. I just don’t have the confidence in our pricing.

  34. 734

    My biggest pricing struggle is getting people to buy prints period! (I live in a small town, everyone offers a cd with all images and no prints) Would love to breakaway from this!

    Twyla says:

    Since I am just starting, my biggest fear is overpricing, and and then at what point do I charge competitively for my area?

  37. 737

    Pricing is tough. If I price too low, it’s not worth my time. If I price too high, I may scare people away. So, how do I find just the right price that makes it worth it to me and my clients?

  38. 738
    Laura says:

    I think my biggest pricing obstacle is convincing clients there’s more than a bottom line dollar amount to consider.

  39. 739

    My biggest pricing obstacle is not ripping myself off for all of my time involved in the process and also have customers pay what i put out there.

  40. 740
    Susanne says:

    I worry that I will sell myself short and set my prices too low!

  41. 741

    My biggest pricing obstacle – knowing just how much my photography is worth. I want to be a better alternative that Walmart, but I also don’t want to undercharge.

  42. 742
    Brienne T. says:

    my pricing fears are charging too much and the consumer not wanting to spend that price but i also do not want to go to low from what others are charging. Also not really sure how to go about figuring out the correct amount to charge.

  43. 743

    My biggest obstacle is my confidence in my work.

    Joel Locaylocay says:

    Although I am not yet in business, my dilemma is in setting prices that are both fair to me and the client.

    Conni M says:

    I’m not in biz yet so my fears are that I would price myself as if ‘I’ was my customer!! And I am cheap LOL!! No way to run a biz!!

  52. 752

    I’m not in business yet, officially that is, but my biggest pricing obstacle is figuring out what’s a good median. I don’t want pricing that some people might think are too expensive and others think they are too cheap. Please help me find a good median. =)

    Kim says:

    My biggest pricing problem is fearing I am not charging enough or going to high for my area, small town area.

    My pricing fears are that I’m either going to charge too much for my perceived skills or abilities, or underprice myself and end up barely breaking even for the time and supplies put in.
