    Default Commercial Pricing Software UK?

    Google is not proving too fruitful at first glance, so whilst I continue to search have any of you UK photographers come across anything like FotoQuote for the UK market?

    Is it not be easier and cheaper to phone around your competitors, pose as a customer and find out how much they are charging

    Default Just get going...

    When I started out, I did a few commercial jobs, and had them under my belt, was rather pleased with myself. Then asked the clients roughly where i stood in the bidding for the job. He wasn't really supposed to tell me. I was 4 times cheaper than the next lowest bidder. So its definitely a good idea to look into pricing.

    I would however recommend doing your overheads (in extreme detail) and working out what YOU need to charge to make the money YOU need/want to earn. If I had carried on at my initial pricing, I would have come to a very quick end. I just didn't do my research/overheads!

    Hope that helps.
