Episode Info:

What can you do when the prospect wants to negotiate price with you? In this video, I'll tell you how to respond and why it's important not to negotiate price.

When a prospect tells you they don't have enough budget to do the work, do not negotiate your price. If you set the precedent that your work can be discounted, they will treat you as such. And when the time comes that they can afford your higher rates they won't give you the work, they'll move on to another agency that charges higher rates. Your pricing and your (lack of) willingness to negotiate sets a perception of value.

Bottom line, this type of prospect is a bargain hunter. If you do come down on price, they'll second guess themselves and wonder if they could've gotten you to come down even farther on price.

A lot of agencies need to realize that you're not right for everyone and that it's OK to turn away prospects. The right prospects are able to pay you what you're worth right off the bat.
