Episode Info: In todays episode, we talk about whether you should write about the cost of your service on your website. Many people like to keep this hidden. We discuss the opportunities to be had from writing about how much it’s going to cost to work with your business. Listen to this episode: Watch this Episode Darryl: Hi! And welcome to “The My Bloody Website” podcast, where we talk about all things online especially for small, medium business owners or marketers. I’m Darryl King, I’ve been running a web agency for over 25 years. My co-host Ed Pelgen who’s been running his online marketing agency for about as long. Our goal is to cover things in a way anyone can understand and can improve how they use online in their business. Episode 36 and we’re going to go with a Content topic this week: Writing about What Your Service Costs. How are you going Ed? Edmund: I’m going very well Darryl. How about yourself? Darryl: yeah, I’m going good. So we have, had a few sort of navel-gazing episodes and discussions in the last three.

Those are good opportunities from a marketing perspective, from positioning attraction. Yeah? So it’s a good thing to think about and then you can work out whether it’s right for your business. Darryl: I suppose this comes into the topic of value came up in previous weeks Edmund: hmm Darryl: that is it because of...
