Someone posed a question regarding when is it right to charge higher prices that prompted a whole slew of responses, mine, of course, was one of them.
I just so happened to have done a paid consulting call with a Doctor about this very topic and I promised I would give you the snippet that demonstrates not only how one can go about charging higher prices and be perceived as a higher priced provider, and why that's important, but I also demonstrate how I close him for my services as I'm teaching him what I suggest he do for himself.
The reason he was looking for someone like me was because he was wondering what he should do about his pricing.
He was charging too little, he felt, and wanted an "okay" from someone to go start charging more for...something that he used to charge more for and get more customers for (how weird, right?).
The post and the accompanying audio should give you a way to see how this is all applicable in the real world.
I recommend listening to the whole snippet as I think you'll find it quite instructive on closing on the fly, live or on the phone.
I do want to give direct thanks to Russell Ruffino, for giving me reassurance in the frame, as long as it's perceived as valuable, assign it the appropriate value.
I also thank Colin for giving me context for how and when to utilize the Zeigarnik effect in application, as I talk about it, as well as other psychology tricks.
A final plug to Erik D Stafford for reminding me to hang out where my customers are.
I think you'll get a chuckle out of the audio as you hear this guy closing himself.
I don't just blurt out a price, I do the whole build up, which is, I think, extremely important for building up pressure before the release, which is the ability to buy.
I do hope you all find it useful and would love to know what you thought.

You already know there are only 3 things you need to do to earn a living:

1. Find a hungry crowd of target customers
2. Offer them your way of solving the problem
3. Get in front of as many of them as possible.

Basic enough, right?

You don't need to build a list, you can steal someone else's audience.

You don't need a can solve someone's specific
problem....a problem they are actively looking for people like you to help them with.

You don't need to buy traffic...there are so many people already looking for your help.

The REAL problem is you let those with the problems dictate how much they should pay you to fix their problem.

You even let them force you to compete for their business.

Can you imagine showing up to a brain surgeon, asking him what your problem is, finding out it's a tumor and then asking him what's his best're going to shop him?

Doesn't seem like a realistic scenario, right?

Well, you have to become like that brain surgeon.

You have to find the folks who have the equivalent of a brain tumor in their business.

They need help or they're going to die and you...

You just so happen to be the only one who can help them. do you do that?

How do you stop scrounging around the bottom of the barrel for cheap clients and start getting high dollar clients without competing on price?

Today marks the 2 year anniversary of my Dad's passing.

There is not a day nor night that goes by that I do not think of my father.

He was my mountain.

Every day I contemplate the existence of an after life because I want to enjoy time with him again.

I don't want to die...

I just want him to be alive.

And should I die, I'm hopeful that we will some how, some way be reunited again.

See, these disconnects to people you hold near and dear to you...

These are the reasons, I believe, that there are so many different religions , cults, etc.

We need things to help us cope when we can't figure out how to, otherwise.

"God help me."

That's another statement that stems from desperation, despair, unease.

In his book, "The Power of Myth" Joseph Campbell says (and I'm paraphrasing), most people ask why we're here.

The better question, if you want to live a better life is to ask "How can I get more out of being here."

I believe he meant getting more of what you want.

Living a more fulfilled life.

If nothing else, that will allow you, God forbid, should you be aware of your  imminent passing, to exit without wishing you had done more, but instead being thankful that you did.

I'm not sure about you, but I love the thought, the notion of leaving feeling like I've done everything I should.

I don't want to leave wishing I had done this or that.

Thankful...hopeful...less afraid.

I'm not sure where I'm going with this but the underlying message I want to convey to those that are feeling in despair due to the loss of a loved one, the yearning of a missed one, or you're experiencing some disconnect and are lonely is...

You MUST pursue your bliss.

The easiest way to do that is to enjoy life on your terms.

Don't waste time on hate or put much effort in harming others...

That doesn't get you more, instead that takes away from all.

Give what you can.

Love where you can.

Be thankful and enjoy life, even if a simple pleasure.

Move your body.

Try new things.

Explore the world.

Go see the wonders that life has to offer.

Connect with a different place...that seem different from you.

Extend hospitality to everyone and embrace those that would embrace you.

Don't do this blindly and don't do this without prejudice.

Instead do it with sincerity and have some sort of mechanism in place to reveal other's intention and reactions to you.

You want genuine, not artifice.

You want authentic, not fraud.


Because with that you have truth.

You can come from the dark side back to the light, but know that you can also do that in reverse.

The person that has come from hell, but is living on the light side, for me, at least, is more well rounded...

They are somehow a bit more trustworthy.

Maybe because they've been where I've been?

Before you do something you think you will regret...think.

Better yet, don't do it.

Yes, easier said than done.

Let me end my rant by saying I hope you're pursing your passion, enjoying your present state, giving thanks, and adding value to the world because only then can you be fulfilled, but either way... 

Death is pissing right next to you.

Either're going to die.

Your passed loved ones are always in your heart, and remember...they want you to have the most fulfilled life possible.

So, let this be some sort of wake up call.

Get to living... for some day, you won't have the chance, anymore.

Oh, by the way, the group is free to join but not sure for how long.

the "local marketing expert guy" | lead generation specialist, marketing expert, guerilla marketing expert
Local Marketing Expert | Local Guerrilla Marketing Expert | Creative Corollary Thinker | Product Creator | Mastermind Maven
Hi all, I'm Carlos a local marketing expert.  Recently discovered some awesome, yet simple ways to drive traffic with sites like  

Put together the BEST How to get leads prospecting course on the interwebs.

I'm a huge fan of "creative corollary thinking", Guerrilla Marketing, (Local Guerrilla Marketing is kind of my forte) and I love outside of the box thinking.

My primary goal is to help businesses develop lead generation strategies whether for the B2B market or Consumer sales.

With so many different online channels of communication and the proliferation of Social Media, inbound marketing, youtube and such its often difficult for many small businesses to figure out whats the best marketing game plan that they should implement.

That's where I come in.  I design simple creative custom marketing solutions for small to medium sized businesses to help them reach their business goals.

I'm originally from Brooklyn, NY, but now reside in San Jose, CA, which is a neighboring township right smack in Silicon Valley, the third largest city in California (yes, even bigger than San Francisco).

So what the heck is *"creative corollary thinking,"* you  ask?

It's the pixie dust of innovation that inspires people to create solutions that make you think "well why didn't I think of that?"

I sometimes refer to it as "under your nose" thinking that you can't see for its simplicity.

Most of my creative ideas are founded on adapting and taking further already existent notions and just going a step beyond what most are willing to in order to get ahead of the pack and outdo competition.

No one should run from seeming sophistication because its the key against commoditization.

I work primarily with small agile businesses in helping them develop customized marketing plans to help with branding, lead generation ideas and systems implementation.

I also train other marketers to develop their creative think tanks while providing support in the form of mastermind group membership discussions and frequent workshops.

I'm a lover of books and believe people are a collection of what they read and who they regularly interact with.

I'm amazed at just how many free powerful tools we have at our disposal and yet there are still so many that are not quite sure how to use it to their advantage.

Paradigm shifts and "aha" moments and social engagements are my dopamine release drives that I simply can't explain.

Adding value is at the core of my business propulsion and the secret to building trust and community in any space.

If you're a creative at heart or are looking at ways to get better at "creative thinking" and positive doing then please add me to one of your circles.

I look forward to engaging with you.

Ok so I had to get my battery replaced and when I got there he was out to lunch. I waited about 10 min but when he showed up he apologized and thanked me for waiting. He guessed that I needed a quick fix, took the watch talked with me a bit and boom a few minutes (if that) later he gave me my watch. Said it was like $7 and I was just amazed. No upsell, no phony talk. He's just a straight up hardworking, nice guy that knows how to treat his customers and what they want he delivers. What a nice, professional and genuine guy. Thanks Fred.. Highly recommend him.

I love their pizza. The place is a pizzeria so its not like I'm expecting fine dining or anything, but...its a pizzeria so decor is probably never gonna be a 3...any pizzeria. The reason why I gave the service 1 is because a few times I went there I noticed on my credit statements that whoever is collecting my signed recipt decides they'll add in their own gratuity. Not happy about that but still recommend the pizza.
