Business Owner: Are you getting what you need in a Mentor or Programs you’ve invested in?

Are you an entrepreneur who has invested in programs, events, and masterminds that haven’t really gotten you to where you really need to be yet in your business?

Are you wondering why that is?   What could you be doing wrong?  Were they just the wrong programs at the wrong time?

So, what’s next for you?  You’ve got to keep going right?

You don’t want to go back and get a JOB… so what’s next for you?

What I’ve found over the last 15 years of business coaching with thousands of entrepreneurs is that most of us have invested in the WRONG thing every once in a while and don’t get what we need.

Unfortunately that’s pretty normal. It sucks but it happens!

The key is to pick yourself back up from that, don’t get jaded and go invest in the NEXT THING!  Hopefully this time, the thing that will really help you with what you need to do NEXT, RIGHT NOW.

One of the things I’m really good at is helping entrepreneurs like YOU determine what IS your next move. What you DO NEED to do next to grow your business.

They don’t just call me the Jumpstart Your Biz Coach for nothing you know… I know how to laser in and focus on what is the single most important for YOU to be spending your time on right now to get you to create a smooth-running, moneymaking business. Plain and simple.

I don’t recommend any ONE thing to all however, it’s not a cookie cutter approach. I’m not going to tell everyone to do THIS xyz thing, because that doesn’t work.

You NEED A CUSTOM APPROACH and plan.

I can help you with that but you have to get over the fact that you need to yet again… invest in yourself and your business.

You have to know that you will ALWAYS have to continue investing in yourself and your business. There is no way to do and learn all there is to do and learn on your own for free; it’s not possible, even with youtube. 😉

I recently shared this broadcast on Facebook Live about Pricing for Profits. The intent of this broadcast was to share some great content about Pricing your Products, Services, and Programs with my guest, Carrie Greene of Carrie Greene Coaching. Carrie was ready to join us but, due to technical difficulties on my part, was unable to log into the broadcast. We’ll try to reschedule soon, hopefully April.

And yes, you’ll quickly notice that I’m sick when you start viewing this video but I’m sharing a lot of valuable tips and strategies here about Pricing your Products, Services and Programs. So I’m encouraging you to stay tuned!

Let’s dive right into Strategy!

First, I recommend you offer a variety of products or services with different levels of pricing.

Let me explain:

You should have a “low-end”, Easy YES offer. This is something that is so good that people say YES & pay you on the spot! Your offer must be crystal clear and it’s best if it’s priced under $100. Depending on the what you are offering, the price could be under $200.   The point of the Easy YES offer is to give prospects a way to try you out, to try out what you are offering and to see what it’s like to work with you.

You should have additional offerings (products, programs, or services) with price points higher than your Easy YES offer and lower than your “high-end” Program or Services.

You also need to create a Signature Product, Program, or Service if you don’t already have one. This is something you’ve created and it’s easily relatable to your Brand.

Click here to view the video and learn additional strategies, tips, and examples about Pricing for Profits.

 

So are you charging what you are WORTH? Is there a Mindset issue that blocking you from raising your rates so you can continue to offer value to your clients while charging what you are really worth? You can structure your programs, services and your prices – It’s Your Business.

To recap, there are several steps that go into Pricing your Products,, Programs, and Services so YOU can make a profit. From brainstorming about ways to deliver the program or product you’re creating, and what is included in the offer to determining the value, what you will charge and how you will sell it.

And finally, there are Sales Conversations that you’ll need to have and Sales Conversations is a topic that I LOVE to coach my clients on for example, what to do, what to say, and navigating objections that WILL come up.

These topics and so many others to help you make more money in your Business will be covered at my Love & Money LIVE! event coming up in a few days. Registration closes on Saturday, March 31st. Head over to www.loveandmoneylive.com to take a look at everything we will cover.

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!

Have you ever designed a new program, product or service or had an idea for one that you had no idea how to price?  Oftentimes, do you wonder if your ideal prospects will pay you what you’re worth?

When you think about pricing your programs, products, and services in your business, it can be a tricky decision. However, no matter what you charge, if you don’t show to your prospects the value of what they’re going to receive, learn or walk away with after buying your program, product or service, then the price doesn’t matter.

If you can show enough value, you can charge really high prices. You would be surprised what some people would be willing to pay if they see that what you’re offering is the exact solution to the biggest problem they have.

 Don’t be scared to raise your rate. Don’t be scared to charge a premium for your services or for working with YOU rather than one of your PEOPLE.  It basically comes down to your own confidence and the wording you use to describe what you do and how it will help people.

What’s important is learning how to speak and write about the value you’re going to share or that your prospects are going to receive. That is the key to getting paid what you’re worth.  This is a learned skill however for most entrepreneurs, you usually aren’t born with the ability to talk or write in a sales and marketing way while still exuding the value of what you offer by talking about what matters most to THEM about what you do.

Continue Reading…

price tagHow are you pricing yourself?

Is it you who assigns the dollar signs or do you let your fears of the economy or what you “think” people will pay determine what you decide to charge for your time?

Think about this for a minute….

And WHY have you priced yourself (or your products and services) the way you have?

Or are you in a business (like a network marketing company) where you have NO IDEA what you’re really making per hour? You just know you need to work HARDER to make more?

Want to figure out what you’re actually making per hour? Is it above minimum wage? I can’t tell you how many people I talk with who when we break it down in hours, time, numbers and figures they’re actually making less than someone in a fast food restaurant.

Regardless of what you’re doing or what business you’re in I can almost 99% guarantee that you’re NOT CHARGING ENOUGH!


How can I say that? Because I’ve seen it hundreds of times with hundreds of other entrepreneurs in all kinds of industries and types of businesses and frankly it’s a shame.

The media has scared us into thinking no one is going to buy from us right now (in this economy) or that people aren’t spending what they used to. And what does that do to our pricing strategies then or our self confidence about asking for the sale?

What if I told you there are PLENTY OF PEOPLE who will pay you what you’re (really) worth but you may not even be talking to them right now? You may not have any idea where these people are because you’re so used to doing business a certain way to a certain group of people?

Do you want to keep on struggling, doing things the same way and getting the same or worse results?

bright ideasOr are you ready to learn some new strategies, open your mind to new ideas and develop an entirely NEW BUSINESS PLAN for yourself? One that includes:

  • Charging what you’re worth and getting it
  • Serving from your bigger purpose
  • Providing services, products and offerings that you’re passionate about
  • Enjoying a more freedom-based lifestyle
  • Stepping into your greater, authentic self so you can be all you are meant to be
  • Less worry, doubt and fear and MORE confidence, self worth and drive

If you’re ready to stop living in fear of lack, uncertainty or unknowingness then take action today and RAISE YOUR RATES! And don’t just raise them a couple dollars; raise them to what you want to be paid.

If you’re confident about your new fees and show it, you’ll start attracting those who believe in you, trust you, who see the value that working with you or buying your products are worth and you’ll attract those who will pay. If you’re NOT confident though, of course they will not….so DECIDE to be confident too!

I would like to invite you to do more than just make a decision to make these changes but let’s take it to the next level and really design you the type of business that you want making the kind of money you want to make.
