Markup vs Margin - Why Your Local Small Business Might Be Missing Your Margin Goal

EPISODE 246 of The Local Small Business Coach Podcast

In today’s episode:  Markup vs Margin - Why Your Local Small Business Might Be Missing Your Margin Goal

When making pricing decisions for your products or services, do you tend to assign a dollar amount to the costs to determine how much you plan to mark them up or do you have a certain percentage that you use?

A big mistake that some business owners make is they price purely off a dollar markup they want. However, the important thing is knowing your margin % and how much you make on each product or service. After all, your profit and loss statement is based off percent of sales, so should your profit.

Let’s take a deeper dive into how you might be confusing markup and margin and costing yourself profits!

Calculation Found in the Episode:

Markup %: Profit divided by Costs

Margin %: Profit divided by Sales
