A list of all factors you think a company would need to consider when pricing a new product.

key factors to consider
Key Factors to Consider
  • Materials
  • Labor
  • Expenses
  • Profit

A Simple Formula

Materials + Labor + Expenses+ Profit = Wholesale x 2 = Price

  • Make a list of all the material fees you anticipate you will encounter
    • Don’t forget the smallest things like thread, to the largest such as packaging!
  • If you need to “guesstimate” err on the side of caution
  • Consider all labor costs that will go into making this product
  • Often forgotten: marketing department, maintenance staff, accountants
  • Research average salaries of employees in your area of production
  • What additional cost(s) will it take to produce this?
  • Expenses to consider: rent, travel, office supplies, research materials, marketing materials (advertisements, website domain)
  • Steps:
  • Write down all additional costs per month
  • Decide how many items you want to sell per month
  • Divide cost by number of items sold
  • Think about where you want your company to be in the future
  • Will this be your only source of income? Will you have more than just one product?
  • Good rule of thumb:10% of Materials, Labor and Expenses

Wholesale Price

Materials + Labor + Expenses + Profit = Wholesale Price

Why Not Stop There?

  • This may seem like a very affordable price for your product, but…
  • Selling your product at wholesale price undervalues those selling at proper retail price- when the majority of sellers price thoughtfully, everyone benefits
  • Customers will wonder why it’s so low. Are the materials not as good quality? Etc…

Wholesale price x 2 = Selling Price

  • How does your price compare to similar products?
  • If the item is priced too high for the market, it’s not the price you need to alter, it’s the design or way you produce the work
  • Get creative and see how you can adjust your prices
    • Can you buy your materials discounted in bulk?
    • Can you produce the product in multiples, reducing the labor?
    • Don’t take the easy way out by slashing your prices!
