Most piano technicians ask all the wrong questions when it comes to pricing their services. By the end of this class you will have the confidence you need to make better pricing decisions. We will cover pricing strategy, industry trends, and best practices for navigating price adjustments especially in today’s challenging post-covid economic environment. Giving thought to how you price your services to cover added costs has never been more important and after this class you will go from someone who feels like all you are doing is guessing about pricing to someone who confidently and strategically prices all of the services you provide.
