Step 4: Periodically adjust the fixed fee price to maintain target margins

Pricing Based on Value (i.e. Value Pricing)

Step 1: Discover what your client values (i.e. how are you the solution to their problem?)
Step 2: Find a way to leverage your knowledge to create generate that solution
Step 3: Communicate (and if necessary educate) the client on the connection between your knowledge and their solution

Step 5: Connect the knowledge you provide the client to the wealth you created for the client (post engagement or engagement phase)

*Note: Wealth is not always financial. It could be advancements in the clients scalability, infrastructure, peace of mind, company culture, quality of services delivered, etc.
