Don’t lower your prices

Free Daily TipsYou are the professional, and it’s up to you to make sure that you give your clients their money’s worth without selling yourself short. Many clients want to haggle, complain, and bargain for a lower price. They may threaten to take their business elsewhere. Many translators and LSPs have a tendency to cave in—and larger clients know this and will take advantage of it. Don’t let this be you! Compromising your fees just because someone doesn’t want to pay full price should never be a consideration. You need to know how to stand strong and hold the line with your prices so that your clients don’t end up getting something for nothing. Think about big-name businesses out there. They don’t let clients dictate their prices. So you shouldn’t either.

  1. This is exactly what I’ve done along the last 23 years time giving One-to-one Training Classes for Adults.
    I do not accept a lower price for what I can do for the development of my Practitioners since I do my best to solve their problem in learning or applying the second language , so it is their obligation to pay me fairly for my dedication . robertodib.ingles@uol.com.br
