Here’s what you can expect from this episode:

If you’ve been a social media manager for a little while now you’ve probably come across the questions “Why are your prices so high?”…then the next moment looks a little like this: your palms get sweaty, your mouth is as dry as the Sahara and you choke. You feel put on the spot and as you babble your way through a response, you really feel like you could have conveyed that better.

It’s not a great experience, but trust me I have been there more than enough times. At this point, I sometimes think it’s a right of passage. However, unlike my experiences you will learn exactly how to respond and position yourself so that you come across like the professional social media manager you are! In this episode, you will gain the confidence to combat these responses and understand where a potential client is coming from when they frame a question in this way.

Topics covered on why are your prices so high:

  • Why most people will ask about how high your prices are
  • The response to this question that got my Instagram community really heated
  • The reason people won’t tell you their budget upfront
  • How to back up your responses to easily communicate the results of your services
