Your Pricing Should Communicate Your Value

The WordPress space is cheap! But that shouldn't let you keep your prices down. Is that a fair assessment? Maybe I'm being too harsh, but anecdotally it's true. I suffer from not charging enough, in part due to being in the WordPress space too long. And I know other freelancers who have the same feelings. But that's why I'm grateful that I have good mentors in my life. And pricing what you're worth – that's what we're going to talk about today.  Brought to you by GoDaddy Pro. Get all of the show notes, and a written to be read article over at https://wpreview.io/44 ...

In fact, crafting a story is more important than crafting a product at first. Brought to you by GoDaddy Pro.
