This is a legitimate question, not a lead in. I don’t have 10 tips to selling your work on craigslist or any of that nonsense. I do have a store room full of stuff that I need to sell. I think I price things fairly (click here for my pricing formula), but I can’t seem to sell things until I cut the price to my cost leaving no margin for overhead, taxes, or profit.
While working on a post about a project I’m finishing up, I managed to wonder off onto the rabbit trail of pricing. I had to come up with my own system since there isn’t much online. After some debate, I managed to come up with a “formula” for setting prices. Using a formula isn’t a perfect solution, but it’s the best I have for now. I think it’s also important to note that it’s not set in stone, I actually built some flexibility into it so that I can keep my income managed and working for me.
