78. Discounts Aren't The Way For High-Growth Service-Based Businesses. Price, Time, & Project Management Wins The Day!
I said no to Black Friday, Cyber Monday, or holiday-themed discounts on my growth strategy retainers and services because the price is the price. If you are an emerging brand that isn’t dependent on volume and want 6 - 8 figure clients working with you, discounts aren’t the tactic to use. If you are a service-based business and have to discount a high ticketed offer for like 40% - 80%, how do you expect to actually make 6 - 8 figures if you aren’t a B2C/D2C focusing on volume, upsells, and subscriptions? You most likely won’t. Your ideal audience shouldn't need a price reduction to jump because price shouldn't be an issue.
The solution is using the right tactics and positioning to get the quality of clients and the number of projects you want.
