Price Your Services to Reflect Their Value
Hosted on Zoom
Many owners of small ABA service organizations are surprised that despite their businesses being busy and in demand, they often find themselves barely breaking even. Many of us went into business to help people in need, support families, and make a difference in our communities. We did not expect that doing so would result in continuous stress about whether we could afford to cover payroll and keep the lights on. Many factors can affect whether a company turns a profit. Some elements, like rising costs due to inflation, are out of our control. However, others depend heavily on the decisions that leaders make. One place to look closer may be how you price your services. This webinar will provide actionable strategies for calculating prices that reflect the value of your services.
