In this video, I will be discussing a survival figure, overhead costs, billable and unbillable hours, the pros and cons of fixed pricing versus an hourly rate.

How to determine your hourly rate and correct it.


This information has been gathered from my past history and some of the information can also be found here at the Landscape Juice.

  • Great video Robbie.

    Good and interesting video, thanks for sharing. I've been running my business,which now specialises in garden maintenance, for over 25 years and would not get away with putting up my charges by 25%. I wouldn't tolerate it if one of my contractors put up their charges by that amount neither. I'm trying not to be negative but really feel I would lose a lot more clients than your suggested amount.

    With respect if you don't make a reasonable net profit it's not worth

    doing 

    if the clients won't pay your new rates then it's just not worth doing 

    there's an old saying

    TURNOVER IS VANITY PROFIT IS SANITY

    Good luck
