How-to to run a software consulting business

Pricing depends on the attitude of the customer

by shabda on January 22, 2012

When people price one important thing which they don’t take into account is the pain-factor of the client. I always give a great rate to a client who I think I will enjoy working with.

Some things you should keep in mind when you decide pricing.

  1. Does this client pay on time?
  2. Does this client dispute every line items on the invoice?
  3. Does this client have technical expertise and would understand when things don’t go according to plan?
  4. Is this client courteous?
  5. Will this client would be a good addition to your portfolio?
