Why do so many agency owners struggle to increase their prices?
Every January, I get a letter in the post from my utility companies telling me that their prices are increasing. We are used to receiving this kind of increase. In fact, we expect it, so we don’t question it and we just move on.
What can agencies learn from this?
In this latest episode of The Agency Accelerated Podcast, I explore strategies to increase your prices in a way that you feel comfortable with and the client is more than happy to pay for (because they continue to see the value in what you’re delivering). This applies to both existing clients and new clients.
I explore the different pricing models agencies use as well as some tips and strategies to ensure your clients value what you do.
Finally I discuss why mindset is the key to increasing your prices and charging a fair fee for the work you deliver.

“You need to focus on the thing that the client really cares about – which is the outcome and the transformation from being in pain to not being in pain.” – Rob Da Costa
“..you all know that a niched agency is always gonna be able to charge more than a generalist. So having a clear niche will also help you increase your prices because you will be seen as a specialist, not a generalist.” – Rob Da Costa
“50% of getting your pricing right is getting your mindset right.” – Rob Da Costa
