Strategic Pricing

Tue, October 30, 2018 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Pricing is the fastest and most effective way for companies to increase profitability. Studies show that a 1% increase in pricing has a greater positive impact on profitability than does a 1% increase in sales volume or a 1% decrease in costs. Unfortunately, too many companies do not think tactically about pricing and do not effectively price for profitability. This workshop is designed to help small business owners and managers to understand common mistakes that companies make in pricing and learn best pricing practices that will enable them to maximize company profitability.

This class is taught by a University of Texas Instructor and counts toward the 6 course requirement needed to earn your Business Skills Certification.

a global giving movement / #GivingTuesday

Tue, November 27, 2018

 

 

  1. Collaborate. #GivingTuesday is all about collaboration and is a great opportunity to work with new teams both inside and outside of your organization. Organize a cross-department committee to lead your organization’s #GivingTuesday initiative. Approach a like-minded charity, business, or school to partner with and create a joint campaign.
  2. Set your goal. Having a clear and S.M.A.R.T (Specific, Measurable, Agreed upon, Realistic, Time-based) goal will help guide the next steps to your #GivingTuesday plans. Define your goal and then think creatively about how you can achieve that objective. 82% of participating organizations use #GivingTuesday to experiment – think beyond the traditional fundraising asks and use this as an opportunity to do something different with your team. And remember – your goal does not have to tied to fundraising. It can be about engaging volunteers, building your social media presence, running a crowdfunding campaign, launching a new program, and more.
  3. Start sharing. These next few weeks are going to fly by. Start sharing your plans with your team and community. Tweet, post, and share any news, sneak peeks and updates about your goal and campaign on our blog. All you need to do is complete this form with your text and an image from your organization or campaign and we will post on our site. We may even give you a special shout out on social media 🙂
