You're listening to “The School of Client Attraction.” Marquel Russell is the founder of Client Attraction University, a marketing consultancy helping you attract clients on autopilot and scale your business while working 50% less.
Quick disclaimer: a side effect of listening to the show is more clients, more profits, more freedom, and it's more impact in your business. Now, here's your host, Marquel Russell.
Marquel: Hey, what’s up, my friend? Marquel Russell here. And let me ask you a quick question real quick.
So, let's just say, for example, you wanted to get a Ferrari and let's say the Ferrari was $250,000. Alright? And you've met somebody, whether you were at the mall or, even, let's say you went to the dealership, and right there in that moment you were talking to one of the dealers and he was viewing the Ferrari you were looking at. You know it’s $250,000, right? But he was like, Ay, you know what? You can actually get this one for $10,000 out the door, insurance, the whole nine yards. Not 10,000 a month. Just $10,000, a one-time, and you’ve got the Ferrari. [01:10.0]
What would you say? You would probably be like, What's wrong with it? Right? Or if you went to the Louis Vuitton store and you say you can get this Louis Vuitton book bag that's normally $1,500 for $50 or $100, you’d be like, This can't be the real thing. Right? And you’d most likely be skeptical and be like, Nah, I'm going to pass. Why is that? Because we're naturally skeptical of cheap prices.
You, as a coach or a consultant, you are amazing at what you do. I'm going to assume you're amazing at what you do. So, if you're amazing at what you do, you deserve to be charging a premium price for your knowledge and expertise.
Most coaches and consultants, they're drastically undercharging. Their price points are $100 an hour, $50 an hour. Right? And the biggest reason why is that they don't understand the value they provide and they're not pricing based on their value, and what they do is they automatically repel their best clients. [02:07.9]
Because a lot of times people, they come to us and they say, Well, we're attracting clients, but they don't have the money, or we want to attract clients who have the money … they're successful … they're this, this, and the third.
I tell them, you’ve got to understand that people who are successful that you're talking about, they make decisions a certain type of way and they typically don't make decisions based on price. They make decisions based on value. And if you position and you're talking about how amazing your stuff is, but then your stuff is priced low, they're automatically skeptical and they're going to run away, and they'll rather go find somebody who charges more for what they have.
Now, you've probably seen it. I know people who have a price offer at, let's say, 500 bucks and the person didn't buy it and he was going to coach them for six months or whatever for 500 bucks. And this person didn't buy, but they went off and joined a $10,000 or $15,000 program. Why? Because they saw that as more valuable. In our minds, we automatically say, Dang, if this costs more, it has to be better. That's just psychological. [03:08.8]
So, when you're underpricing, undercharging for your products, for your services, you're automatically scaring your best clients away. Those clients who are willing to give you a premium price, because people buy based on how fast you can help them.
People, when they come to you, they're here and they want to get here. This is their current reality. It’s their preferred reality. They want to close this transformation gap in between as fast as possible, and people will pay you based on how fast you can help them get there and they're willing to pay you a premium price. But if you're the person who's positioned as the Walmart in your particular industry, they’re automatically going to be repelled and they're going to run the other way.
So, what am I saying? What am I suggesting? When we work with clients, coaches and consultants, we help them start charging anywhere from 3,000 to 10,000 or more. We typically don't let our clients who are coaches and consultants, I don't care how long they've been in business, we typically don't let them charge anything less than 3,000, and that's on the low end. Okay? And then you go up from 3,000, 5,000, 10,000, 15,000, 20,000. [04:03.3]
You may be thinking, How do you choose 3,000, 5,000 or 10,000? What it really boils down to is the mindset of the coach or consultant because, in reality, the only person that cares about the pricing is the coach or consultant. Their ideal client isn't. They're not thinking about the price. They're actually thinking about the outcome. And if you can help them get the outcome, they'll pay any price, even if it's not with you, because you're not positioning yourself right and you're not making the offer, but they're going to pay it to somebody. All right? So, understand that your prices can absolutely be scaring your best clients away and you don't want to do that.
All right, now, here's the thing. Most people, coaches and consultants, they undercharge because they're in lead lack. They're in lead poverty. They don't know how to get consistent leads and they're not waking up every day with a calendar filled with people who are looking to work with them.
