A lot of business owners avoid increasing their prices, either because they’re worried about losing clients or because they don’t know how to go about it. Even when they know that they need to increase their prices it is too easy to procrastinate (I’m the queen of procrastination, I have all the excuses)
I’ll cover the ‘how’ in separate tips but today I want to talk about why.
We all started our business for a reason which broadly come into one of three areas:
• Build something valuable to sell at retirement
• Better work – life balance
All of these will benefit from having better prices allowing you to earn more money, increase the value of your business, or to earn more in limited time.
But the real benefit to our clients is that we will have time to provide a quality service. To do things properly and not cut corners. And to run a business that will still be around to help them in future years.
When we provide a quality service our clients benefit, they stay with us, and they refer other people to us. It’s a virtuous circle because everybody wins.
To create the business you want you need to charge the right prices.
