If you’re a professional of any kind who bills by the hour or an entrepreneur, you’ve likely experienced your fair share of requests for free help.
In “Converting Free to Paid,” you’ll learn how to handle brain picking requests with confidence and without risking alienating friends and family in the process. You’ll discover a natural path to turn freebie seekers into paying customers.
Here's What You'll Learn:
- Where do you draw the line between free and paid?
- How can I say no without upsetting him/her?
- How can I get comfortable with telling people this is my work, I charge $XXX and convert them to a paying client?
- How can I use freebies to get paying business?
- How can I make money from those who need help but can’t afford my rates?
- How can I avoid the frustration of helping people who need/ask for it and then they don’t follow through?
This Course Is for You If:
- You don’t know how to respond to brain picking requests
- You find yourself stressed and caught off guard when people ask you for free assistance
- You’re not entirely sure what you should be offering for free and what you should be charging for
Each class is available in video, audio and written format.
During week 4, you’ll receive access to the Product Creation Video series which will provide beginners with the basics of creating products and there will be a Q&A session.
You will also be able to attend Q&A calls held for future “Converting Free to Paid” participants. Replays of Q&A calls will be available and you can submit questions in advance.
