Designer’s Business Guide Webinar Series: Priced to Sell and Profit Selling is easier when you can clearly articulate what exactly you offer. There is a tendency in a downturn to think that the only way to get a potential or previous client to buy is to discount your services, but this should always be a last resort…and really doesn’t ever need to happen. The better option is to understand what your I.D.E.A.L. client needs in any given moment and make an easy-to-say-yes offer at full value.
It will be organized as a brief webinar training to introduce a few general principles Sherra teaches her coaching clients about making clear, easy to say “Yes!” to offers that is then followed by a conversational Q&A and idea sharing.
