Value-Based Retainers for Fun & Profit

NICK DISABATO, Cool Guy, Draft
Over the past 6 years of running an independent consultancy, I've gone from barely scraping by to thriving, and it's largely come about because of the way that I position and price my work. In particular, most of our work happens on retainer (so we can beat the feast/famine cycle), and it's priced on the value we provide (so we can charge more).
In this talk, you'll learn how to increase your own pricing and build a durable business model over time – so you can charge what you're worth as an independent designer or developer.

Share your knowledge with webfriends.
