Where Are You Getting Your Clients?

Where are you getting your clients? by Jill Celeste, www.JillCeleste.comI have an important question to ask you:

Raising Your Prices

Raising Your Prices by Jill Celeste, www.JillCeleste.comAre you thinking about raising your prices?

It can be scary, right? On one hand, you want to be compensated more for your time. On the other, you don’t want to ward off potential clients.

Raising your prices is a must, though. On a practical side, you have to make up for cost of living increases, such as higher gas prices and property taxes. On the growth side, you have probably been undercharging this whole time, which is killing your mindset.

Entrepreneurs raise their prices all the time – and you can too!

To help you, please check out this marketing strategy video where I talk about mindset issues around price increases, as well as some tactical advice for when to raise your prices.

We need to implement a mindset shift, starting now! And the perfect place to begin is with asking for referrals.
