Did you Know….

that money is the number one cause of stress, both in personal life and in business life? That fear of not having enough income to pay monthly expenses is real, especially when you add in the responsibility of supporting a family.

One way to alleviate your money woes is to pay attention to your pricing, for programs, courses and  products. Instead of just randomly picking prices out of thin air, think strategically and figure out your financial sweet spot.

What is your Financial Sweet Spot?Click to Tweet

Never heard of this term before? Your financial sweet spot is that monetary figure where you can live comfortably, pay your bills, and still invest back into your company. This figure will depend on many factors, including the cost of living where you’re located, but will serve as your overall income goal.

6 Ways to Bring In More Money

Now examine each of your programs, courses and/or  products and research how much your market is willing to pay for these.

Tip 1

Is there a way to bundle multiple products together for an even higher price?

Tip 2

Ask your audience directly what they want and can afford.

Tip 3

Make a beta offer on a new product.

Tip 4

Another way to bring in more income as well as new prospects is with group coaching.

This option is ideal for those who want your expertise but who can’t afford private one-on-one sessions. Even though each individual would pay less than a client in private coaching, you’ll still make more per hour because you’ll have more than a single person in your group.

Tip 5

Another way to achieve your financial sweet spot is to create a membership or a mastermind group that clients can graduate to when they are done with their sessions.

Membership groups are generally billed on a monthly basis and members have access to your original content and you. Masterminds are generally more high-end than membership and cost more per month. The big difference, however, is the mastermind members are all experts in their own right and you all gain knowledge from each other. Membership members simply want to learn from you and may not feel they have enough success to help others yet.

Tip 6. Up-sell

Do you have upsells for those clients who purchase coaching packages or other products?

An upsell is simply another product offered exclusively to those who make another purchase. While this can be a free bonus product, it’s perfectly acceptable to charge for your upsell product. Upsells work best when the price is considered a bargain and when the offer is relevant to the customer.

  • Yes, I have heard of the term financial sweet spot. These are helpful since I am in the beginning stages of a photography business. And these things can apply to my personal finances as well, especially the first one about bundling. We bundle internet and TV together in our personal budget.
    I do have some friends who have a more successful business than I do and I will pass these tips to then.

    • Renee Lamb says:

      Hi Jessica
      You are so correct about us already bundling in our personal life, so it should transfer to our bizness. Thank you for sharing with your other biz besties, truly appreciate that.

  • Mommy Sigrid says:

    Well, I like the term. But yeah. I need to find that sweet spot. Too bad though that I am not in that spot yet and needs keep piling plus the rate of inflation is really getting crazy 🙁 Been working my butt off but that’s just reality.

    • Renee Lamb says:

      Mommy Sigrid, I hear you. Take it one step at a time. First step might be looking at your personal and business expenses. Then looking at what you need at minimum to cover those expenses. From that point, what can you do in your business to generate that profit from what you have already. For instance, if you have a 1:1 program, turn it into a group coaching program, that frees up your time, plus you sell to many people. You can do it. Thanks for your honesty and comment.
