(VIDEO) 3 things your customer might be saying, when they say “That’s too expensive!”

​Knowing what and how to charge your customers isn’t always easy.  There are many things that can get in the way, least of all yourself. When you’re challenged by a customer on price, ​worry and self-doubt can creep in.

​What do you do when your customer says that’s too expensive:

​Do you feel a sense of panic when your customer says you’re charging too much?

​Does it just seem easier to offer a discount​ rather than have a discussion with the customer?

​Are you frozen and ​unsure about what to do next?

You’re not alone!!

​It can be a tricky situation. By understanding what they might really mean and knowing what to do next you can handle such pricing discussions like a pro. ​Remember, ​just because a ​customer says that’s too expensive ​doesn’t mean they aren’t interested. In fact, because they asked how much you charge, you know they’re giving it some real consideration. ​
