How to Set Your Prices

taught by Katie Altneu

Course description

It can be difficult and feel arbitrary or random deciding on your prices.

Many people just take a look around and do what everyone else is doing, or charge more or less than others for reasons that are random.

There is a better way to do it.

I think it's very important to FEEL GOOD about the fees you're charging your patients.

I'll walk you through a simple formula to help you calculate the price you NEED to charge.

You can download an excel spreadsheet that's pre-formatted to help you make your calculations for you.

So you can see the math clearly, feel good about your prices, and state them clearly and confidently to your patients so that they feel good about them too.

So that everyone prospers.

And you make a good living doing what you love.

Hello there! I'm Katie. I’m an acupuncturist and herbalist with a practice I love in Denver, Colorado. I've gone through the journey of creating a busy practice. I've learned things the hard way, in the trenches.

I've also taught the Business/Practice Management class at CSTCM for four years. My previous career was in economics and finance. I love merging these two worlds. I love our medicine and I'm dying to help other acupuncturists learn the business and marketing tools they need to fuel their practice success.

I started creating these resources for acupuncturists online because I want to give you access to the information I wish I would have had from the beginning.

As any silly, serious, strategic, personal or professional questions come up, please give me a shout. I’m always delighted to hear from you. Fire off any questions to me at Katie@acuprosper.com. If there is anything I can do to serve you, just ask.

You deserve a business and a life you love. I can help.

Spreadsheet is amazing

by Erin Moore
The spreadsheet she provides is amazing. It really helped me to drill down and see what my expenses are and how much I will make based on how many patients I am seeing each week.

Great!

So useful!!!

by Fung Fung Lim
I'm a brand new practitioner and had no direction what so whatever how to set my price. Katie really stressed the importance about you as the practitioner have to feel comfortable with how much you are charging your patients. And the excel spreadsheet she listed for free is amazing! Would have taken me hours of work to figure out how to put it together like she did on excel. Thanks Katie!!!

Great advice!

I've always heard that you should base your rate on the going rate in the area you want to practice, but now I understand why that doesn't work and how you can tailor it to fit your needs! Thank you Katie for showing us how it's done! P.S. I really appreciate the excel spreadsheet.

A great quick course for pre startup pricing info

by Laura Markey
I will be starting in practice in the summer and am doing research into how to go about setting things up. Despite having run my own business for seven years I have always struggled with pricing. This is a really clear explanation of the multitude of factors you need to take into account. In particular it is a good way to move beyond the typical 'market price' idea and tailor your price to your individual needs.
