  3. How Most Planners Charge Source: Nationwide survey of 100 independent planners.

  4. Choosing A Pricing Model • Most planners have no idea how to charge. • Key requirements of any model: • Must be profitable for you. • Must be acceptable / affordable to your client. • Must be in line with your competitors. • OK to use more than one model. • Consider asking clients which they prefer.

  5. Transparency & Value Any model is OK, if you’re willing to disclose it. Assume client will find out. How would you respond If you’re hiding how you make money, you don’t think you’re providing enough value to justify it. Know how much $ a job is worth; be prepared to defend to client. Once you agree on the value of your services, the pricing model should be irrelevant.
