As fall approaches and clients start working on plans for 2020, it may be time to raise your agency’s prices.
Chip and Gini explain why you should be thinking seriously about bumping up your rates (and what it can mean for your bottom line), and they also offer tips on how to do it effectively.
- Chip: “I run into very few agencies who are overcharging their clients, and many, many, many, many who are undercharging their clients.”
- Gini: “Eventually, you need to run your business as your agency as a business. And I think we can agree that that now is the best time to start doing that whether or not you think you need it.”
- Chip: “I’ve had clients in the past I’ve gone to, and I’ve told them that they have to pay twice as much for what they’re getting, if they want to continue. And I tell you what, every single time I’ve done it, 100% success rate on that. If someone is being that over serviced, they really recognize it.”
- Gini: “Clients are really reasonable. I mean, they get raises every year. Why shouldn’t they be paying their agency a little bit more every year?”
