Today my Idea in the Shower was What If People Charged What They Were Worth?

What if your hourly rate, your package price, or your annual program, or whatever you do was priced really high? I hate to see that some of you are NOT charging what you are worth for your services or products.

When people ask me what they should charge for their program, I answer that “you should charge as much as you can without stuttering”.

So let’s talk about pricing today!

I’ve found that many people starting out look at the marketplace, their competitors’ prices, and they charge something similar or many times, lower, because they are new to the business. That’s not the best thing to do!

For example, many times people who have the education and training needed in an industry but who are new entrepreneurs charge less than someone who has been an entrepreneur in that same industry for a longer period of time, but without the same level of training! Just because they’ve been in business longer doesn’t mean they are better. These new entrepreneurs should be charging what they are worth right out of the gate! They can still negotiate custom packages and pricing or beta test pricing with a lower price. When you are starting out, you need to get some clients to try your service or product; you need to get feedback and testimonials – people who like what you offer and have good things to say about you (so you can get more clients, right).

You need to start thinking outside the box about your pricing!

My Ideas I Get While in the Shower this morning is about Ideas I had about my new podcast today while I was in the Shower.

For those of you who didn’t know, I used to have a radio show on Blog Talk Radio with many followers. But once that show ran its course and I haven’t replaced it (yet) with another radio show or podcast, but…

I am starting up my new podcast very soon and my Ideas today were about what to name it. I’m trying to come up with the best name for it, something cutting edge. It dawned on me to ask for you, my followers; to give me some input on what you think is the best name for my new podcast.

I have several brands such as Jumpstart Your Marketing and Love Money to name a couple. I’ve thought about naming the podcast something similar to the name of some of my Events, like Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend or my Love and Money Live event.

My ultimate goal for being in business is to help others create a BIGGER LIFE for themselves. And a Big Life to me means more Love in your Life, more Money in your Business and living bigger – whatever that means to you!

Click the video to learn more about my Brands and my “Ideas While in the Shower” about naming my podcast.

What kind of feedback can you give me?

Interested in coming to my Live Event in November? Just go to the LiveBigEvents.com page to get the details of my Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend event or head over to JumpstartYourBizinaWeekend.com. Time’s running out to register, so don’t wait. This event is more like a training event so check out the benefits you’ll receive by attending.

Hope to see you there.

If you are an entrepreneur who is really trying to ramp up your business and especially if you are in the first 5 years of your business, this is my Special Invitation for you to join us at my November LIVE Event because it will be perfect for YOU!

I talk to many entrepreneurs and they tell me they listen to podcasts, sign up for webinars, they watch You Tube videos, and opt in to several people’s email lists to get GREAT INFORMATION and to learn more about how to create a profitable business.

Does this sound like you?

Have you signed up to dozens of email lists and are you listening to a variety of several people’s podcasts, videos, webinars, etc?

Guess What? That’s a lot of learning!

Know What? Many people who do this find they are spending their time learning but NOTHING IS GETTING DONE! They are not getting further in their business because they are not TAKING the TIME to implement all they’ve learned into their business so they can have a smooth running, consistent money making business.

Inconsistency is a problem that many business owners deal with. And here’s the rub. If you are following several mentors and trying to implement several different philosophies or strategies, you’ll be getting inconsistent or conflicting information.

I’ve been working in marketing and sales for over 15 years now and in my opinion, you need to pick only ONE mentor! Sure, it’s fine to go to a few other events here and there, but I’m recommending you shut off all of the different tele-classes, unsubscribe to some of those lists or put them in a separate folder so you don’t get sidetracked by that BRIGHT SHINY OBJECT SYNDROME.

What you need is help and direction with the order of importance for you and your business. You need someone who can look at the BIG PICTURE of all the things you are currently doing in your business as well as the things you want to be doing several years from now. Perhaps you need to start taking BABY STEPS toward making your business more profitable and it could be that you need to take GIANT LEAPS.

Click the Video below to listen to my “Special Invitation For You…” to learn more about why picking one mentor is more beneficial to you and your business.

 

Are you Ready to work with someone who can see the BIG PICTURE of your business, where it is now and guide you what to do to make it grow and be more profitable? This is my PASSION! AND you will get the type of direction I’ve shared with you in these video tips whether you work with me one on one, or if you are in my LIVE BIG MASTERMIND or if you come to one of my LIVE EVENTS!

You can invest 3 days and get the direction and focus to get super clear on what you are doing and see the options of whatever is possible. GROW through your comfort zone to stretch yourself to DO MORE, BE MORE, REACH MORE PEOPLE and make a lot MORE MONEY doing WHAT YOU LOVE!

If this has resonated with you today, I want you to do these 3 things:

    1. Stop listening to so many different people. Get rid of too much information overload because what you really need is a Focused Path of Action.
    2. If you want to work with me or to find out how I can help you, come to a call with me. It’s not a hard sales call, seriously! You’re going to get some great ideas (FREE) and we can both see if working together might be a good fit! Get your free complimentary business strategy session by clicking here: http://www.AskKat.biz.
    3. Come to my LIVE EVENT – JumpstartYourBizinaWeekend.com – November 3rd, 4th, & 5th in Sacramento. I encourage you to register for one of my live events sooner than later because if you are like many entrepreneurs, you need to make more money NOW!

If you are unable to attend my November Live Event but are interested in a future event, you can get information and schedule of my future events at LiveBigEvents.com

But if you are Ready to Jumpstart Your Business, I hope to see you sooner than later!

Talk to You Again Soon!

I want to share some tips with you about Live Events and how to host your own Live Events. While networking in my local area, I’ve noticed that there are more people who are hosting their own Events.

But first, I want to let you know that I’m sharing a bunch of new free gifts on my website – there are currently 12 of them – that address a variety of topics.  Just head over to the JumpstartYourMarketing.com website and go to the “Resources” page.  You’ll find a page where I’ve listed my Recommended Vendors; people who can help you with a variety of tasks like shopping carts, email marketing, etc.  AND there is also a page where you’ll find my FREE GIFTS.   Go check it out!

Now back to my tips about Hosting Your Live Event…

I’m frequently asked about how to host live events by people who may or may not have been coached on this important topic. It’s clear to me who hasn’t received coaching on hosting live events and I’m sure these people are not getting the results they had expected.

I’ve been to many different types of events – some have been extravagant, attended by many people where we were treated to free food and drink. Yes, they were phenomenal! But for most of us entrepreneurs, we need to have the end result in mind when we plan our events.

How will we or can we make the event profitable?

One of the biggest profit killers of a live event budget is providing too much food and beverage and/or the number of rooms blocked off in the hotel where the event is being held, if you don’t have enough people signing up at your event.

There are many ways to have an engaging and exciting event without spending too much money or blowing up your budget. For those who are just starting to hold events, my advice is: You need to be practical.  And that’s the kind of advice and guidance I provide when coaching people who are holding live events.  Keep the end result in mind – Keep it profitable.

I would love to talk to you more about how to hosting your own live event. This is a topic I discuss what to do and how to manage a live event as one of the business models you can implement in your business at MY Live Events. My live events are somewhat intimate with approximately 60 attendees. There is networking and spot coaching involved as well as loads of training. My next event is November 3, 4, and 5th, 2017 and it’s being held in the Sacramento area. I’ve been holding this event for several years and it’s AMAZING! This is my Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend Intensive event. We covered so many of the topics you need to get your business off the ground and make it profitable quickly. I’ll cover several different types of marketing strategies and business models. I show you several ways to do things. Join us at this next event. Just go to LiveBigEvents.com to see all of the juicy details and reserve your spot.

It’s all about building the life you love on your terms. Hope to see you there.

You CAN host your own live event BUT be careful or you may make some of the same COSTLY mistakes I did when I first did it!!

host your own eventHosting your own event will give you extra credibility, exposure and cash flow!! But you want to learn how to launch them the right way and most affordably based on where YOU are in your business, not where the person is at that’s teaching you.

Now I’m not trying to instill fear to keep you from hosting your own event.  There are so many affordable ways to host an event!

When I first started hosting events, I didn’t have a resource to guide me or to field my questions.  I usually provide this type of coaching for only my high end clients or in my mastermind. I’m sharing some tips in the video below because I see so many entrepreneurs jumping into situations related to hosting events that will ultimately cost them a lot of money.

Here are some things to think about when hosting your own live event:

  • What do you want to sell AT the event because you won’t make your money from ticket sales?
  • How many is the minimum that you want in attendance – plan your budget for that?
  • Will you have other speakers to add to the roster and will you allow them to sell stuff?
  • Where can you hold it where it won’t cost you an arm and a leg?
  • What can you teach that isn’t too much info so they leave wanting more?
  • What else do you need for the event to be successful?
  • What do you negotiate in a contract if you’re using a hotel or venue with one?
  • Maybe it’s time to get a mentor who can help you sort through all of this so you can maximize and monetize your time and exposure!?!?!?

Check out the video below for more tips on “When is a Good Time to Host Your Own Event?”!

Come talk with me in a call where we can see if it’s a good fit to work together on this, it’s free to just check it out, what have you got to lose? Nothing! Sign up for a call with me here now, it’s never too early to think of ideas and plan this out:  www.AskKat.biz
