If there’s one subject that tends to cause service businesses more frustration than any other, it’s pricing. While proposal software like Quote Roller has made proposal writing a piece of cake, pricing your services is still mostly a judgment call, which makes it a headache for business owners who like to work “by the book.”
There was a time when service professionals of any kind could have simply asked for the “standard rate,” a typical hourly figure that most if not all practitioners in the same geographic area would have stuck to. But with the rise of online outsourcing and the increased accessibility of foreign talent, those days are long gone.
And for savvy business owners, this news couldn’t have come fast enough. Because the truth is, the opening of international markets to freelancers and service professionals has actually increased business’ flexibility in pricing their services. Sure, the web is full of contractors willing to sell their services for pennies, but on the flip-side qualified and talented contractors now have tens of thousands of potential clients to work with, instead of the few dozen they’d be lucky to get in the days when everyone worked locally.

The internet never sleeps, and considering the fact that most mobile phone users keep their mobile device within arm’s reach constantly, it’s no surprise some online entrepreneurs it may feel like they never sleep either. Countless jobs available online, combined with the convenience of a smart phone, equates to most people taking their jobs with them wherever they go, including vacation.
With more mobile devices being sold per day than desktop computers, savvy entrepreneurs owe it to their business to be where the clients are. Daily innovations and introductions of new, convenient applications might give the false impression that one needs to be online 24/7 in order to be successful.
