A Surprising New Perspective on Pricing

4 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I'm currently going through another course. I've found a refreshing new perspective to pricing.

The mentor talks about shifting your mindset from what should I charge to how can I help people. But the next part of the equation really opened my eyes:

He said, if somebody dumped x amount of dollars into your bank, would could you offer them from the list of things they need help with.

So rather than choosing your services or packages, then sticking a price on them, he's flipped it to start with a figure. 

He also stated that, if the client cannot afford, this is where you start removing components as opposed to lowering price.

Really got me thinking ...

Wow, Mark, that is so insightful. I had encountered a client who said that she could not afford a package so the budget that she I tailored the package to meet her deadline. I a sure that mindset does play a lot in how we perceive money.

I've done something similar with clients in the past. I bluntly asked them, how much could you afford monthly for a Virtual Assistant? Once they gave me the amount I wrote up the best services I'd offer them that would help their business the most that month (give them the best bang for their buck).
