Have you reached a point where you realize you give way too much to your clients for free? Listen to Nikki’s on-air coaching call with Heather Craig, a Sales Maven Society member and the owner of Thriving Waves Financial on how to get paid for the services your clients are getting for free. Heather needs Nikki’s help to transition the clients she has had for a while at a lower rate into the new pricing structure that is higher for the services they already receive.
Heather discusses moving into a subscription model and updating her packages, so she is less likely to give so much information away for free. Nikki suggested that she first communicate with clients who ask questions that aren’t part of their packages about the updated package prices. This is a good first step in how to get paid for services your clients are used to getting for free.
Nikki also addresses what to do about the clients that won’t be happy with the new rates, and she shares a story about a time when she had to charge for services that some clients thought were free. Then, Nikki speaks about possibly having a fifteen-minute option for clients that didn’t want to level up to a new package.
Lastly, Heather shares that her favorite part of being a member of the Sales Maven Society is that anyone can post questions and get recommendations from Nikki and anyone else from the group. Nikki gives the best advice and thinks of things that aren’t even on most people’s radar. If you want to take your business to the next level, you have to listen when Nikki speaks.
