Start with a very low price, or even free, for a few people. Build that portfolio and reputation. Then charge more, that's how I tend to do it.
This will only work for certain scenarios though. For example, if you are a business where the customer only visits and buys from you once (no repeat purchases) then it's important that you do not start to charge a low price because you won't be able to charge a higher price from them again. Plus, starting with a low price might put some customers off since they may believe that your business is low quality and not good enough to purchase from.
