[Video] Why Design Fees Are Best

 

 

Today I want to share something that happened to me this week. In a conversation with a designer, she asked me if I really felt that fees were better than billing hourly. She mentioned that there was a bit of controversy on this subject. I think the only controversy is for people who are afraid to try it because once you do it, you never go back.

It’s that simple.

Watch the video above where I explain how designers diminish themselves through time billing. I explain the different scenarios that show how a significant hourly rate can actually end up being much lower. Billing hourly causes us to run up against our own money issues around time and our value over and over again.

All this trouble can be avoided if you call out a design fee at the beginning, along with a scope of work, and you have an agreed-upon budget. It’s a way of running a design business that’s much more efficient. It’s a really easy way to sell, the job gets finished, and you make way more money.

I want to invite you to my new, FREE webinar series, Master Interior Design Fees (Like a Pro, With a Pro!). It’s a three-part series where I’ll teach you how to transition from being the bargain-basement designer who undersells your talents to a creative whose services have a high value.
