As a buyer, do you hate negotiating prices? Always feel like the seller is ripping you off? Well, if you’re a business owner and your business negotiates service rates or product prices with your customers, how do you think they feel?

In this post, we’re going to discuss why businesses in variable price-based markets should consider standardizing and publishing their rates.

Well, I've been thinking about this for some time now, and I'm one of those in the consulting industry you spoke of. I think the question now would be "how to implement this transparency" rather than "whether to implement this suggestion". Thank you for verbalising our concerns!

Hello Jason,

Glad you liked the article!

As for "implementing the transparency," we'd say it's just a question of being visible (i.e. becoming well known). And really, that's just marketing.

If you need any ideas about how to get your name out there, we wrote an article on that too: http://goo.gl/mnJsr

Otherwise, don't be shy to request a topic if you feel so inclined! :)

All the best,
