The Episode: Why Online Coaching Doesn’t Need to Be Discounted
In a heavily online-dependent world, does going online really mean having to charge less? Aren’t you still giving the same quality of service and solving the same problems? Jon, Carolina, and Ren touch on the importance of seeing your value as a coach in setting up your prices and increasing them as you build your client base. Stay tuned to learn about the country’s mange problem and why Jon’s letter opener is named Excalibur.

“Once you actually know how to do this and sell this, you literally go from charging $100 a month to $1,500 for eight to 12 weeks.”
– Jonathan Goodman
You have to sell solutions. Communicating the solution effectively from the start matters more than what’s in the program itself.
Why you don’t have to charge less for online coaching
There’s no glory in charging your clients as little as possible. You’re still solving problems and providing a valuable service, and you’re doing it in a way that maximizes efficiency for the client. You deserve to get paid accordingly.
Bump it up little by little
You can’t go from discount to premium pricing overnight. You need to increase your fees incrementally until you reach a fair rate for the value you provide. As a bonus, each price bump boosts your confidence.
