In determining prices for any service, one must determine all costs associated with providing services to one’s clients within a given time frame along with the amount of profit desired. The sum of these numbers, divided by the number of billable hours or days that can be sold during the same time period will yield an hourly or daily price. Depending upon how a company is structured and the desired profit margin, these numbers can vary widely.
When setting prices for infrared inspection services, ask yourself the following questions:
Once you have established pricing and begun to market your services, be prepared to justify your prices to prospects. Clients will often spend more for services if they can be convinced that they will receive better quality and value. Consistently having the lowest price will not win every order and can compromise a company’s longevity.
