September 11 @ 12:00 pm 2:00 pm

A woman with long dark hair tied back is sitting at a desk, holding a small brown package and looking thoughtfully to the side while holding a pen to her chin. She is surrounded by packing materials, including tape and other boxes. There are shelves with additional boxes and some plants in the background. In the bottom right corner, there is a logo for Service NSW Business Connect

What should I charge? This question plagues creative practitioners and arts no matter what industry. There are answers, but they are fascinating and complicated.

Working out what to charge for creative products and services can be a colossal challenge. Where to even start? Pricing for Creatives is a practical online workshop that covers the basics of figuring out the price point for creative work, including calculating costs and understanding what the market can bear. Pricing for Creatives is vital for anyone struggling to understand the value of their own work, and how to share that value with others.  


With a specific focus on the arts and creative industries, this workshop covers:

+ The beginnings of the process and working out how much everything costs. 

+ Working out the Unit Cost measurement, and its place in the costing process. 

+ The value of time, and how to measure effectively.

+ Choosing the right pricing method for your products and services. 

+ Understanding how to evaluate the marketplace with the right kind of research. 

+ The Psychology of Pricing, and how it impacts on what you can charge for your work. 

What do I get? 
All participants of this workshop also receive:

+ Lifetime access to a dedicated Pricing for Creatives Dropbox folder full of additional resources and workbooks to help continue the learning after the workshop.

+ Access to additional free webinars to supplement the material covered in the workshop.
