How to set your pricing

It's easy to find yourself considering hiking the price of your product, especially when you think you're the only supplier in your market. However there are factors to consider before deciding to increase your mark up.

Small business guru Pavlo Phitidis speaks on how to know when the price to your products is just right.

You've got to consider four things when you do pricing on whatever the product is: The Cost of the product; Fixed costs of operating the business; Competition and how does a customer perceive value in what you're offering?
