Pricing is just a
I know this idea of dead-zones can feel paralyzing but what I have found is that dead-zones are actually pricing brackets that are heavily saturated and in high demand ( it not due to lack of clients willing to pay you ). This means that your price isn't the problem, it is your online presence.
Needs to showcase the true value you bring to your clients and create an emotional desire and connection. Just telling them you have a dog, like tacos, and showing some updated headshots isn't going to cut it past the 3k mark.
Is the heartbeat of your business. If you don't know how to speak to your ideal people, sell your services, and evoke trust through your words - you can not expect your business to catch someones eye in a see of cookie-cutter business structures.
We don't follow the
Gone are the days of running a business based on what others are doing in your market. It is time to run your business by looking at the clear indicators and data that your clients lay-out for you and lean in on your strengths to create a brand and business that can stand on its own.
