A few weeks back, someone complained to me, and said “I really hate when people try to haggle my rates.”
You see, this person was a freelancer. And while they agreed that some freelancers cut corners and treat their clients poorly, they didn’t operate like that. They actually put the work in.
He then asked, “How can I stop people from haggling me down? How can I get paid what I’m worth?”
So I shared 3 tips with him, and a word-for-word script he could use to prevent clients from haggling down rates.
And right after I did that, I was like, “This needs to be a Social Triggers TV video.”
And so it is.
How to Prevent New Clients From Haggling Your Rates
In this video, I share 3 tips that apply to ANYONE who feels like their prospects try to haggle too much.
(These tips will help you deter hagglers)
I also share a word-for-word script you can use to convince these people to pay your full price.
After you’re done with this video, I want you to do TWO things:
#1. I want you to tell me a story about a time when someone tried to haggle your rates. Leave a comment, and tell me how it made you feel. Tell me how you responded to them. Share anything you can that you think will benefit the Social Triggers community.
#2. Do you have a friend who you think is plagued with pesky “hagglers?” Someone like a wedding photographer, a freelance writer, or anyone that offers products and services? Send them a link to this video.
