Coaching Session With Lain: Selling Like A Pro

A slightly manic writer, speaker, and deep thinker – Lain Ehmann

The easiest way to come up with your premium pricing without pulling numbers out of thin air. How to create “urgency” for clients that are late to reply. How to set up your personal network of prospects to never ever have a “dry season” again. How to know where the real pain is before you go on a sales call.

We’re back!

 

And we’re talking about packages and pricing again… plus some other great stuff. Thanks so much for the comments and emails – Jaime and I both love hearing how much you’re enjoying this series. I’m loving it, too!

Synopsis

Pricing and packages, oh my — I wish I only offered two different things. But because I basically create a custom solution for each client, I spend A LOT of time tweaking and adding and revising. I’d really, really like to reduce it as it’s uncompensated time — and I think it will make it easier for people to refer me and understand what I do if I limit my offerings.

In Reflection…

Looking back at this call from two months ago, the thing that made the biggest difference was tracking my prospecting and the results. After doing this for a couple of months, it’s easy to see patterns — like people who consistently refer ideal (or close to ideal) clients, and the amount of time it takes between initial contact and accepted proposal.

That Jaime is one smart cookie!

See you next time…

Thanks so much for listening!
