“Hey Michelle, why are there three purchase price options for the same book?”
I am so glad you asked!
The team and I have been thinking a lot about equitable pricing. We feel that different folks will find different value in things, based on their own cash flow and relationship with the moolas!
Instead of asking for a flat rate for this book, we want to give folx more opportunity for their investment to be in line with their current cash flow.
Therefore, we’ve given you some suggested price points based on what it “gives back” to the team – you can choose one of those, or pick your own.
We love experimenting with bold new ways to bring pricing justice to the online space! Thank you for your thoughtful purchase!
How to Use this Ebook:
Every business has a process in which they generate inquiries (sometimes called leads), whether that process is intentional or not.
And you already have an inquiry process – whether it’s intentional or not. You already do it ALL THE TIME. Perhaps you don’t use the fancy lingo (yet!), but you’ve been doing it since your very first singer/client.
This ebook is less about the generation of leads and more about what to do once a lead has reached out for more information—and how you can systematize this process so you can offer stellar customer service while saving your energy for the good work in session.
So we are on the same page (ha!) moving forward, here is how I define the client inquiry process in the context of this ebook: the process of informing, selling to, and welcoming potential clients into your studio or business.
It’s addressing their questions and concerns and ensuring they understand the services and/or products available to them. Client inquiry is one of the most important functions for any business because it directly affects the client’s experience with you and/or your company, which will then determine if they stick around or talk about you all nice like to other folks and pay you the monies.
