Double figures! We are in to Day 10 of the Remote Expert Business Advent Calendar.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am going to talk money today. Awkward I know. As online business owners we are somehow under the mistaken impression that our fees should be lower because we are online.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What I would like to know is who on earth came up with that fib? In fact, the work I do now is just the same as the work I did when I got in my car, drove to my office and sat at a desk before getting back in my car and driving home. The only difference is I save myself 90 minutes a day in commuting. But otherwise I work just the same.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So why should I charge less?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I want you to end 2019 looking at your charge out fees and think about what sort of increase you can have going into 2020. How long has it been since you increased your fees? The good news is a new year is a good time to have that awkward money talk with your clients, it can be a general, "I love working with you and here is my new fee schedule for 2020". After all you see those signs when you go to the physio or Doctor? So why not do the same. You are totally worth it.
