I am very surprised to know that there are people out there who are offering comprehensive coaching programs and are charging less than what they’re supposed to. I worked with a client in the past who used to sell $500 phone coaching programs when he can charge as much as $5,000. You see, some people think that if they charge way less compare to their competitors, they can easily boost their sales. You have to understand that your pricing strategy have a huge impact on the success of your business. If you charge $500 for a $5,000 product or service, you’ll get your customers thinking why. These people will most likely to assume that you have nothing great to offer and that you’re not that good compare to your competitors. You don’t want that to happen, right? If you charge too low, you also run the risk of attracting the wrong market. You will not be able to convince those with great buying powers to do business with you. That’s the worst thing that you can do when you’re selling high ticket coaching items. So, start thinking about increasing your prices now. These tips will surely help:
1. Check on your competitors. Do your research and identify those people who are selling the same programs as you. Study their pricing strategies and identify which one really works for the kind of market that you’re targeting. Ensure that you do not charge less compare to them as this will not help you increase the perceived value of your offerings.
2. Be the best in your chosen field. Increasing your coaching fees will get a lot easier if you can position yourself as the best or at least one of the best in your field. How to do that? Well, start by being very visible in the online arena. Offer expert advice and share your in-depth knowledge through blogging, forum posting, article marketing, and by hosting your own free teleseminars. You need to prove to your prospects that you have what it takes to learn the things that they’re dying to know about and to help them solve their pressing issues. If you can convince these people that you’re the best, you will not have a hard time getting them to buy your services regardless of their tag prices.
3. Use test groups. If this is the first time that you’re considering increasing your prices, I would recommend using test groups. Apply the price increase to some of your loyal and first time customers. Their reactions and feedback will give you an idea if this will do your business more harm than good. If the test suggests that they’re not happy with this change, care to know why. Perhaps, you can offer them with additional products or services or improve your offerings to help these people welcome this change with open arms.
