I know someone who charges less
These six words are responsible for why many bloody good freelancers are underpaid and overworked....
Listen... once a Client begins to say stuff like...
"I know someone who charges less"
"I'm in talks with other freelancers right now... and they'd be happy to work with me for less than what you're asking me to pay"
"Why am I paying you so much?"
What they're trying to achieve is a bargain.
In most cases, they have already decided in their head they want to work with you
They just want to see how much of a bargain they can squeeze out of you
Look at the potential of the gig in question
Then decide if it's worth giving them a bargain
Sometimes, depending on the back-end potential and secondary benefits of the gig
You might want to settle for a bargain
Like you charge $3,000...
But you really want to establish a working relationship with this Client (because now you see the potential...)
So you tell them they can pay $2500 for a monthly retainer.
And if you play your cards right...
That $500 you've taken off their shoulders will come back in many many folds via referrals and repeat business
But the truth is...
Not every Client deserves a bargain
In fact, in "most cases",
Being the guy who doesn't budge on his fees makes you the most sought-after person in your space
Because that kinda attitude screams class and premium value.
And premium value doesn't come cheap or with discounts
This is something you need to keep in mind going into discovery calls or negotiations with Clients
Understand exactly what it is you're bringing to the table
How that helps your client get what they want
And how much value you place on what you're doing or will be doing for them
Being conscious of this helps you close more deals
And ultimately attract bigger fish
That is, assuming you know how to create leverage with existing clients
P.S: you know client money is not the only way to monetise your skills yea?
Take Copywriting for example...
There's about 7 income streams you can create with your writing skill
And all 7 of them can be automated to run simultaneously
Once you understand this concept of automated cash-flow systems
You can easily triple your earnings every month
So instead of doing say... N500k a month
You have like 2 cashflow systems bringing in extra N500k each
That's like N1.5MM instead of N500k
Just an example
It could be 10x .. 20x that
Not bad right?
This is similar to what Tamilore Adewuyi does
He's using one skill to create mad cash-flow for himself
And he works really hard and smart...
And that's why his numbers are so sick
I know because his primary mentor is my close friend
Anyway, I've explained how this works in section 6 of my new Copywriting training
First, I show you how to make a consistent seven figure income with your writing skills
Then, I show you how to create or leverage cash-flow systems and assets that multiply your monthly earnings... while you focus on your primary source of income
You can finish section 6 in less than 15-minutes
Then put the strategy to work by tomorrow (the Internet doesn't go on breaks)
