Tired of charging by the hour? There is a better way.
“I’ve been in business for a while and I need help leveraging my expertise, perhaps learning new skills and getting away from charging hourly.”
You’ve been in business for a while. You’ve experienced some success, but you are feeling stuck. Maybe it’s your business operations and you want to know how you can have a more effective web presence, how to land more ideal clients, and maybe do away with trading hours for dollars and create packages.
Or maybe you have paying clients and are looking for strategies to bring more profit, ease, and freedom into your business without selling your soul. Perhaps you want to add to your service listings or switch to a new niche or specialty altogether?
As a seasoned VA, you’ve been at this for a while. You may know your ‘stuff’ but you still need help in fine-tuning your strategy or you need someone to help you get to that next level. You are looking for specific help, whether it’s a group coaching program or one-on-one support.
I’ve been in this boat MANY times over my years of being in business. I used to joke that I “just want someone to tell me what to do.” Funny thing was, I wasn’t joking! I know what it’s like to feel like you’re an airplane circling the airport but never landing. It’s ok, I got you!
Here are my trusted recommendations to get you unstuck:
If you want a masterclass in how to increase your revenue while getting out of the dollars-for-hours trap, make sure to watch my free on-demand training presentation, “Creating Service Packages That Sell.”
- A better way to earn more money AND work less.
- The EXACT steps I used to create my own packages and what I have taught hundreds of others to do for years.
- How to create packages that will work for your business, even if your clients need a “Jane of all trades” who handles everything from a blog post to a telesummit schedule.
- A completely new way of working with your clients in which they aren’t having to compute their return on investment AND you won’t be penalized for being fast.
- How to create the long-term leverage and freedom in your business that you’ve been missing.
- Free training covers this and more!
Get away from the dollars for hours trap and create profitable service and support packages with my advanced training program, Profitable Packages.
Did you know that if you charge by the hour, you are getting paid HALF AS MUCH as someone who works slower? Ouch. Moving to packages is a smart move for many virtual assistants and I’ve served hundreds in helping them make the switch.
Training program comes with training modules, bonuses, and 1:1 support, all designed to get your packages created fast!
