How to raise your rates without losing your clients | A Better Life Podcast with @RachelRofe

Podcast Overview:

Are you in a spot where you know you need to raise your rates, but you’re terrified of losing your income? 

This episode goes over some ways where you can start charging what you’re worth WITHOUT losing all of your income stability.

I also give a word for word script you can use while implementing this.

Resources Mentioned In This Episode:

Word for word script – I have an entire blog post on this, so check that out for a recap of everything I mentioned.

Here is the script alone:

“I’d like to discuss our working together. I’ve loved working with you so far, and judging by your feedback, I’m pretty sure you have too:

Mention feedback here. [“You’ve told me I was the best writer you ever hired.” “You made $30k from my sales letter.” “You said I’ve done the best job anyone else ever has.” “You’ve lost 20 pounds.” “You said I got your voice.” “I saved you 10 hours.”]

Since we started together, I’ve been restructuring my business so it’s even better for you. Based on [what you/what other clients I work with] have said, I decided to add “x” services into my package. This helps you save [time/money/whatever], plus makes it easier for you overall.

I am also changing around my pricing structure. My rates are going from “x” to “x” effective “x”, and I am becoming much more selective about the types of people I work with.

I chose this rate very carefully, making sure your ROI was still high:

Mention ROI here. [You make $20k each time I write you a letter. You get “x” hours saved with every “x” you pay me . You’ve told me you feel more confident than you have in years, which is priceless.]

…and then of course, you’ll also have the added “X” benefit. [Mention what you came up with in paragraph 3.]

Like I said, I’ve thought this out carefully to make sure you have a positive return on investment from working with me. And if for some reason this doesn’t work for you, I’ll be happy to refer you to someone who might be a better fit.

And as a side note, I’ve been thinking about your business, and I also think I can help with… [mention something here].

If you have any questions, let me know. I’m looking forward to an even brighter relationship together. :)
