STOP LOWERING YOUR PRICES.
❌ TRIGGER ❌
If your price is “too high” for someone.... they are NOT your target market/ideal client.
I have been told this a few times, however I never take offence. My services are priced fairly for the time and hard work that goes into them.
Let me clarify...
ITS OKAY IF YOU CAN’T AFFORD SOMETHING.
ITS OKAY IF SOMEONE CAN’T AFFORD YOU.
Times are bloody hard. Those who have spare money are incredibly lucky!
The aim of this isn’t to make people feel bad about not being able to afford something.
At @socialuxeuk we accommodate to all budgets and offer services of a smaller price such as masterclasses & Ebooks.
This way, no one loses out!
(Small biz? Offer products/services which vary in price!)
I firstly need to emphasise that telling someone their product or service is “way too expensive” is actually pretty rude.
By saying this, you are basically telling them they are not worth that much. They don’t deserve that much.
For a small business, especially in these times....it can really get you down to hear that, and make you question yourself.
A few polite alternatives:
- This is slightly out of budget but thank you for your time!
- Thank you! I will have a think and get back to you!
- For now I will have to pass, but possibly in the future we can work together!
....it’s really that SIMPLE.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO LOWER YOUR PRICES.....PERIOD.
It can seem tempting when you get feedback like the above....but don’t do it. You are only doing a disservice to yourself and your hard work. Your prices won’t be for everyone and thats okay.
If you are patient and take the steps to ensure your IDEAL CLIENT/CUSTOMER finds you, then working for the money you DESERVE is one of the most rewarding feelings.
When you are being paid what you deserve, it only motivates you to work even harder for your client/customer to ensure they are 100% satisfied.

Your prices are “HIGH END”...but so are you sis.
❓HOW TO AVOID THIS?❓
Establish yourself as a LEADER within your niche.
PROVE the value that your product/service provides.
