How to smash the barrier to increasing your prices

Breaking through your price barrier can seem like a daunting, if not impossible task. 

After all, how can you increase your prices when you believe your clients are unwilling or unable to pay higher rates? 

The key to boosting your prices is to start by shifting your mindset and changing the way you think about value. 

Rather than looking at price as an obstacle, consider it a measure of the value that you provide to your clients. 

You need to believe in the incredible value that you bring to every one of your customers and be unapologetic about promoting and communicating that value to them. 

By focusing on what makes you truly unique and highlighting your value proposition, you can help empower clients to see themselves as worthy recipients of the service or product that you offer. 

And with a strong conviction that price should never keep anyone from getting the help they need, you will finally be able to break through any barrier standing between yourself and increased profits. 

Here are key steps you to take to get past yourself imposed barrier to price increases. 

Check under the hood first

You are in business to create profits and you might believe your only option is to increase your prices but have a look at your figures first. 

There are several ways to improve your business performance, but one of the most effective is to carefully monitor your expenses. 

By renegotiating your supplier contracts and reducing your subscriptions, you can free up a significant amount of money that can be reinvested in your business. 

By keeping a close eye on your spending, you can ensure that your business is as profitable as possible.

Shift your mindset

But the truth is that there is a simple solution to smashing through your barrier and achieving your goal of higher prices. 

At its heart, increasing your prices comes down to mindset and belief: it all comes down to changing the way you view and believe in the value of your product or service. 

With the right mindset, you will see yourself as an expert with years of experience, offering extraordinary value to customers who recognise and appreciate the worth of what you have to offer.

Do you genuinely wholeheartedly believe your offer (product or service) makes a difference to your customer?  It doesn’t matter if you sell pens, accounting services, houses or coffee – do you believe in the value you bring?

Check your Focus

Do you believe Price is your most sensitive part of your sale process?

If you do – you have a PROBLEM!

We should be focusing on offering our customers real value and driving positive customer experiences throughout their journey with our brand. 

Whether it’s through providing high-quality products, delivering an impactful customer experience, or simply ensuring that our customers always feel valued, every touchpoint in our sales process should be focused on driving value for our customers. 

Ultimately, putting the customer at the center of everything we do will help us to build a more successful and impactful business that truly connects with its audience.

After all, a sale is not just about exchanging money for a product or service; it also involves meeting the needs and expectations of customers along their entire customer journey. 

Furthermore, a company’s brand image, quality standards, and impact on society are all factors that cannot be measured simply by comparing prices.

Although price is an important consideration for customers, it is not the only one. Businesses that want to be successful must focus on meeting the needs and expectations of their customers throughout their entire customer journey.
