In case you’re new to my world, I’m your podcast host Ellen Yin, and my company helps women like you make their first $10K revenue month from a 1:1 service without needing a large audience or posting everyday. 

If that describes you, you are going to love this episode because I decided to start a series on the big things I have noticed that are keeping people from being able to reach that financial milestone of their first $10K month. We are going to explore a different topic in each episode of the series, but with this kickoff episode we are going to focus specifically on why your service is being sold like a commodity, and how that is impacting your ability to land the right clients for your service. So if you’re hearing a lot of no’s, you're getting a lot of people price shopping you and passing on your services for another service provider’s, then this episode is for YOU! Let’s get into it.

Favorite Takeaways From This Episode:

  • What a commodity is and why your messaging is positioning you as one.
  • Why you are getting price shopped and ghosted by potential clients.
  • The reasons you should stop using the process of your work as the selling features.
  • “How am I going to sell the possibility instead of the process?”
  • You should be selling the results and possibility of what your work can achieve.
  • Possibility does not equal promise.
  • If you can clearly communicate what your work is capable of based on previous experience/clients, that is the goal.
  • Sell the destination, not the vehicle.
