Why Aim to Be the Most Expensive?

This topic often sparks controversy. Many struggle with the concept of charging high prices, especially those with a broke mentality. Let me share my journey and why I decided to go this route.

Back in 2017, I was broke, living in my van after a music career, and cleaning windows part-time. Transitioning into pressure washing, I found that I could get higher ticket prices than window cleaning. However, volume wasn’t the game since most clients only needed their houses cleaned once or twice a year. I realized I needed to adjust my pricing to not only be profitable but also enjoy my work.

Coming from South Alabama, there was a mentality that hard work meant low pay. I decided to break away from this mindset. If I was going to work hard, I was going to get paid well. This decision changed my approach to pricing and helped me build a successful business.

The Key Points to Focus On

  1. Intrinsic vs. Extrinsic Value:

    • Intrinsic Value: The actual cost of performing a service, which is often low.
    • Extrinsic Value: The perceived value of the service to the customer, which can be significantly higher.
  2. Understanding Your Customers:

    • High-ticket customers value professionalism and reliability.
    • They trust you around their homes, plants, and cars.
    • They are willing to pay more for peace of mind and quality service.
  3. Sales Mindset:

    • Stop pricing from your own pocket.
    • Focus on the extrinsic value and the emotions of the customer.
    • Remember, if the customer is happy, the price doesn’t matter.

How to Implement High-Ticket Pricing

  1. Confidence in Your Value:

    • Believe in the value of your service.
    • Know that your professionalism and expertise justify the higher price.
  2. Handling Objections:

    • Expect to face resistance when you start charging higher prices.
    • Stick to your guns and understand that not all customers will be a fit.
    • Learn from each interaction and refine your sales tactics.
  3. Practice Makes Perfect:

    • Keep pitching your high-ticket prices.
    • Analyze your win/loss ratio and improve your approach continuously.
