Do you know how much gross profit is built into your small business start up products and services? In the rush to get something sold and out the door, you may not have calculated what your profit margins are. At the start up stage of business you won't expect to make a profit on your overall business operations due to the start up costs plus operating overhead expenses. But, when it comes to the actual pricing of your product you'll want to make sure there's some profit build in from the very start.
As a small business start up you may have decided to be a low-price leader and reduce your price to create more volume. Even at that, you still need to know your start up margins to avoid being profitless when you reach your start up target volume.
