Day 9 – Forget your hourly rate

Hey challenger!

 

If you are earning your money by selling your knowledge, experience, advice, content, expertise… then you have an “Expert Business”.

And most experts I know don’t understand the unique business model of an Expert Business and as a result, never fulfill the true potential of their expertise.

We cover this unique business model in “The Expert Masterclass”, as well as many other topics, but with today’s challenge, I want to help you get started with the process…

You probably worked so hard to create your product or service – that you don’t have a clue – how much more potential it has.

Your product or service is only a seed.

You need to plant it, you need to nourish it & water it and when you do that – your product or service will grow to become a money tree.

Your product or service is the seed – you are the … gift.

Here is how you can unlock your expertise full potential.

    Hi Nisandeh,
    Thanks for this opportunity to look at my business in this way.

    Ik have made 3 products for three different fields I am expert in. I’ll share with you one. I’m a Brain Gym trainer. My target audience are teachers, childrens coaches and parents that want to support children to enjoy school by helping them with nice excercises that unblock their defence systems and help them to read, write, focus, organise and communicate better.

    With this series of 6 videos I want to get them to know BG as a front end to my course (back end). I want them to experience what it does to them, so they get excited and want to continue for themselves and their kids.

    1. Finding your own PACE (rythm of learning) E: drink water, C: massage brain buttons A: cross crawl P: hook ups.
    2. Goal setting with the PACE model P: positive, A: active, C: clear, E: energetic.
    3. Preactivity: feel in your body where there is discomfort concerning your goal. check eyes, ears, walk arround, laugh, focus.
    4. A few Brain Gym excercises
    5. Postactivity: feel your body concerning your goal. Check eyes, ears, walk arround, laugh, focus. Jump up and celebrate your change.
    6. A complete protocol

    Hope to hear feedback. Thank you. Love, Merel

    Wow, a very good assignment! But hard too. My main product will be a (not yet available but working on) online program in a healthy lifestyle for kids. Form pregnancy, birth and thereafter. So, Lessons could be to separate it and in the lifestyle too, separate all topics.

    Natural healthy pregnancy
    Natural Birth
    Natural healthy diet 4 kids
    Natural activities and upbringing 4 kids
    Natural care and nurturing 4 kids
    Natural emotional health 4 kids

    I would package all of them again in smaller online courses. The online program has all of them in it.
    There is also a VIP day (live) where they will learn all of it to implement in their personal day/lifestyle.

    Ideas or suggestions are welcome!

    Hmm.. I’m not a coach/teacher, I don’t sell knowledge to people, I treat animals fór them. For which I ask a fixed price, by the way, I don’t have an hourly rate.
    I just can’t think of any way to do this challenge with my line of work.
    The only ‘product’ I plan to ‘sell’ is a short Homeopathic First Aid course where people learn to use a few remedies for simple clinical acute problems on their own.
    I plan to give this course on 4 evenings or two afternoons, in which people learn some basic theory about homoeopathy and the characteristics of those few remedies. People who attended the complete course are then allowed to buy the First Aid kit with the remedies and a small book with the remedies in it.

    Dear Challengers
    Thank you for sharing your ideas.
    I either haven’t understood the assignment or I stick out of the group. Either way, the reality is that, in addition to my writing, I can only think about the Circular Economy and reconnecting with Mother Earth. These two topics are actually linked because I teach my students to see the world around them. At the core of the Circular Economy we mimic Mother Earth where the concept of waste does not exist. Everything is food for something else. We can make this systemic shift possible when we understand Mother Earth.

    • Mariëtte Verlaan

      Dear Gordana,
      You actually have written down all the topics that you could easily pack into a program, eBook or lecture!

      When you explain each topic it will contribute to our wisdom and understanding. It would clarify our challenge to become aware and make our planet a sustainable, cleaner, healthier, natural, enjoyable place.
      You can also put small assignments in between that will influence our daily thoughts, routines and habits.

      Cheers!

      • elisabeth Neutel

        Hi Patricia,
        thanks 🙂 Always good to hear someone else opinion, much appreciated. The keychain can be anything, for example, fights, namecalling, hurt, abuse, betrayal, distrust, etc. Women who were in an abusive relationship tend to miss the relationship and forget how bad it was, due to the circle of abuse. They have a way of downplaying a situation. Feelings of shame and guilt are passing by. Strong words that describe the why are to never forget what was there, so you cannot downplay the ex-relationship.

      I’m really impressed Elisabeth, I think this is something that is needed and welcome a lot!!! All the lessons speak to me, they are making it a whole package.
      Isn’t this Workshop ‘Op eigen kracht’ more like a program? A high-end product which takes several months? I would prefer to take time for this all and the lessons look more like workshops/trainings.

        Hi Yvonne,
        thanks for the kind words, that’s really motivating me to reach my goals.

        I was thinking the same thing for the name of the workshop “Op eigen kracht”, but they’re so many workshops already called this why that it’s making it weak and not strong (that was my idea at least). Maybe “The strength of single motherhood/divorced women” or “Single moms after divorce” or “Single moms become lionesses” or “Inner strength as a divorced woman”. Do you have any suggestions?

        And yes, a long-term high-end product would fit the course and really strengthen the women that are divorced (or getting divorced).

        Greetings, Elisabeth

          Get the best out of your single motherhood? Would that speak to you? I would take a name implicates a result. Or optimal single mom, Or How to be me a single mom, happier than ever?, something like that? I don’t know, it’s not it, but if I know something else I will let you know!

      Hoi Elisabeth,
      je hebt het duidelijk voor ogen. Een ervaren programma maker. Mooie variatie tussen coaching en e-course, De laatste les 6. is mij nog vaag. Het zou de kroon op het werk van de deelnemers moeten zijn, dus een feestelijke eind met het samen vieren van het behaalde doel lijkt me een mooi vooruitzicht.

        Hi Marieke,
        thanks for taking the time to provide me with feedback, much appreciated. The 6th lesson indeed should be the crown on the work. I’m gonna sit on that. Maybe I’ll put in a return day to celebrate all the accomplishments. If you have more input in what direction I could think, that would be helpful.

    Dear challengers,

    To increase impact I developed this eCourse https://www.fengshuigarden.eu/tuinharmonie/product/ecourse-jouw-levendige-groene-tuin/ and I have these questions for you:
    1. What do you suggest needs a “tweak’ on this page?
    2. To receive more “in-depth” answers I am happy to send you my eCourse if you are willing to provide me with input on how to improve it. Preferably you are a garden owner with a curious approach and interest in spicing up your outdoor space.
    3. Would you recommend your friends to visit TuinHarmonie.nl and buy the Book or eCourse? Why yes or why not? https://www.fengshuigarden.eu/tuinharmonie/komkommertijd-graag-jouw-feedback/

    I look forward to your comments. Thank you!

      Hi Mariette, I like your product very much. I like gardening, nature, and Feng Shui, so this is a beautiful combination… I looked at the page and the course, and it seems to be a lot of value for this money. I think even 4 times the price would not be too much. But however, about the ‘tweak’, I find it hard to find, because the whole page is kind of ‘messy’ viewing on my laptop. The background picture repeats itself all the time, and the right-sidebar is very very long… Perhaps a more horizontal way of working would be more feng shui?

      Reply
      • Mariëtte Verlaan

        Yes, I think you have a point. I will look if I can remove the sidebar from all shop pages. It’s too distracting. And I will also look at the background. I am not sure if the picture can be used as one big one. I chose the cover of my book for it contains all the lively elements (energies) of Feng Shui.

        You are absolutely right about the value for money. I will double/triple the price as of December 1st.
        Thank you so much for your comment! I am glad you love the topic and cheer me on!

      Dear Mariëtte,
      Love your page because I cannot get enough of that topic.
      Since your main goal is to creat stunning, lush and Feng Shui designed gardens, I would put more pictures of this end goal: one huge image of an incredible garden. To create the connection to Fengsuhi, why not a picture with a pavillon or an arwana pond or some auspicious Chinese symbols like birds or peaches.
      What do you think?

      Reply
      • Mariëtte Verlaan

        Dear Gordana,
        Your comments are so lovely to read and I also thank you for your e-mail. Let me know how I can help you.

        I will look for more pictures to tell my message. I want people to create natural Western havens and not just add Chinese symbols. My book has many examples of what a personal garden may look like. Plantings, ponds, birds, colorful flowers, beautiful shrubs and trees. I will dive into them and add them to my web pages and to the eCourse as well.

        I used to have a cherry blossom tree in previous websites. Very appealing as a Feng Shui tree and suitable to grow and bloom in European gardens.

    Good day everyone!

    It is a good eye-opener for me not to give my hourly rate, but to focus on what value I can deliver. I saw this assignment as describing what you exactly get when you hire me as a freelancer, what valuable product/result. For me, it is not ‘lessons’ but ‘value packages’ that can be specified with a certain price it costs you. I’ve written them in Dutch as my site is also in Dutch.

    1. Promotieplan waarmee je je merk in de schijnwerpers zet
    • Verdieping in doel, merk en doelgroep
    • Uitzoeken van optimale middelenmix binnen beschikbaar budget
    • Opstellen van plan: wanneer welk middel inzetten

    2. Merkpositionering vertaald naar huisstijl
    • Positioneringssessie om kernverhaal van het merk te achterhalen
    • Briefing voor vormgever voor ontwerpen huisstijl
    • Advies over te ontwikkelen corporate uitingen en tijdlijn

    3. Kwalitatieve communicatie-uitingen
    • Inventarisatie inzet van middelen, online en offline
    • Offertes, planning en afstemming met leveranciers
    • Coördinatie van totstandkoming van uitingen

    4. Organisatie van event
    • Offertes en afstemming leveranciers: locatie, catering, sprekers, acts, AV-middelen, communicatie e.d.
    • Draaiboek opstellen
    • Coördinatie van event

    5. Doelgroepgerichte, aansprekende teksten
    • Verdieping in onderwerp, doelgroep, middel en doel van de tekst
    • Tekstschrijven
    • Tekstcorrecties doorvoeren

    6. Een gesproken voice-over
    • Inventarisatie lengte, middel, doel en doelgroep van de tekst
    • Inspreken van de tekst in geluidsstudio
    • Montage door geluidsstudio

    If I work ad-interim somewhere for half a year, for example, I think I have to stick to an hourly rate. What do you think?

      Hi Connie. Why hourly rate? You could also call it a ‘project-rate’, no? a specific goal, well defined, and you estimate your time/effort for it, that helps you set the price / period / hours
      and you could monitor your work well with this, no?

      Hi Connie, yes, I think that is usual (the ad-interim).
      I notice you have a lot of different qualities! What area speaks to you most?

      Sometimes it’s not really clear to me what you offer, like number 3.
      Number 4 would interest me the most for what I’m looking for.

        Thx for your reply Yvonne! I like to do a mix of all actually 🙂 But the branding part I like best.

        I understand that 3 might sound cryptical. It’s my service to help produce websites, brochures, advertisements, etc. Communication means. This is not something that can be offered as a lesson, but as a value package of my service.

        I am still trying to figure that out, to be honest. But I’ll try to put as much as possible online, so meditations, video combined with pdf worksheets etc… Although it will not be easy. Like ‘the trick’ (spiertesten) has got a lot to do with confidence, and that I need to think over very well. Maybe film a group learning it, so the viewer sees that everybody struggles in the beginning and that it works in the end…

    In my business, it’s a bit different. Parents don’t pay for themselves, but the government does (gemeente). I have to ask the government to approve my application for healthcare for the child (it’s already a package small/ big/ long term).

    But I’m brainstorming about an online training for parents after all the sessions. I’m thinking about an online training, so all the tools will be used after I’m done with the sessions. It’s a valuable training which parents can buy after they’ve seen what value I gave them in the sessions with them and their child.

    When parents don’t live nearby they can buy an online training with the same value, but whith a different approach (they start at the beginning).

    I have to overthink the ideas, but there is a beginning 😉

      Hello Mirjam,

      What I suggest is the online training sell with the reason that they can use it when there are implementing your advice’s. And look back what did Mirjam means with that advice and parents can look back in your program.
      The format I think, I’m totally not a expert, short video’s with one topic. FAQ but then in video.

    Hello all,

    It’s really good to think of this for me.

    My lessons as a coach for employees between 35 and 55 years:

    -1- Start with one topic ‘How to stay focussed under pressure’. Give a clear description at my website, Facebook and LinkedIn about the benefits for my target audience to get coached by me. (After this 30 days I can look how to improve my website with my new insights).

    -2- Get started with writing blogs

    -3- Write an e-book.

    -4- Advertise in Magazines.

    -5- Write a book.

    -6- Give presentations for free at firms.

    -7- Start with a workshop at a firm.

    -8- Then have coach sessions face to face.

    Then I will choose the next topic and take the same steps….

    I’m curious about your comments…..

    Hi, everyone!

    The topics I have chosen are:

    1) How do you choose a parity that works?
    2) Be successful in connecting and communicating and not just dating
    3) Create a double vision
    4) The balance between parenting and relationships
    5) The balance between personal development and relationships
    6) How do you deal with marital routine?
    7) Betrayal in marriage – is it the end of the story?
    8) Coping with a partner’s depression
    9) Coping with anxiety in parenthood and marital relationships

    The contents can be packaged using an audio disc, a video or a YouTube channel with a promotion.
    A magical and inspiring week!

        In – Step 4-1 > Research tactics with ambassadors the numbers and facts are also researched, as that a good decision can be made.

    I teach photographers to become specialized in capturing farewell moments. People don’t know us very well yet. So how to attract clients should be a very interesting online course I can offer. Just got all excited about implementing this assignment.
    I commit myself to get this off the ground in 2018!
    The list can be copied to other businesses, but of course, I give value on how to do this in the examples in the online course.

    Wow I loved this assignment!
    Thank you. I wrote this in half an hour in Dutch and will not translate into English (sorry) The course will be in Dutch first anyhow.
    I would love comments on it.

    6 lessen Hoe je jouw bedrijf als afscheidsfotograaf tot klantenmagneet maakt.

    Ik verbind hieraan de manier om recensies te vragen op je werk; template, email, enz.

    3 Zorg dat je feedback krijgt op je werk
    Wanneer je blogt kun je om reacties vragen.
    Vraag naar de ervaringen van klanten en evalueer deze
    Vraag om reacties van de mensen waarmee je werkt, buiten je klant om
    Ik verbind hieraan de manier om recensies te mogen ontvangen per email – template

    4 Zorg dat je jouw ervaringen deelt
    Plaats met toestemming je meest bijzondere verhalen om aan te tonen wat jij doet
    Laat jezelf fotograferen/filmen als je aan het werk bent (en plaats dit online)
    Ik verbind hieraan een online workshop – hoe start je dit, waarmee vul je dit, wat vertel je hierin, enz.

    Jouw ervaringen laten iets van jezelf zien waardoor je aantoont:
    5 Zorg dat je laat zien dat je uniek bent
    Alleen jij doet het op jouw manier, want jijzelf bent uniek
    Op welke manier kun jij laten zien dat je anders bent dan anderen?
    Welke producten of diensten zet jij in?
    Ik verbind hieraan de lijst met manieren om waarde toe te voegen

    6 Zorg dat je ze extra’s kunt bieden na gedane zaken
    Denk na over jouw overdeliver – gift
    Houd contact met je klant
    Wat kun je nog betekenen na een opdracht?
    Ik verbind hieraan een lijst met mogelijkheden om te gebruiken wat ik gebruik… templates, print voorbeelden, plekken om spullen aan te schaffen voor een goede prijs.

    Dit is een pakket dat ik online kan aanbieden. Ik houd een webinar/video met uitleg waarin ik uitleg geef over elk onderdeel en wat je kunt doen als ondernemer. Dan kan men kopen wat elk van de onderdelen aan uitwerking heeft inclusief de uitleg en templates die ze in kunnen gaan zetten voor hun eigen bedrijf. Niet nadenken, maar overnemen en doen. Voorwerk heb ik gedaan, ik weet wat werkt en wat niet. Koop dit pakket en maak van je bedrijf een klanten-magneet.

    Wat do you think? Attractive enough?

      Hi Boukje,

      is ‘afscheidsfotograaf’ a known word in your photographer’s world? I wouldn’t have understood the meaning, but I’m no photographer. Sure, your topics are well-known in business coaching land, however, you determined a very specific group, which probably makes you the big fish in the pond. I suggest to do some research first: are photographers – who want to learn to become specializes in capturing farewell moments – unaware of these topics? Do they need this content, is it valuable to them? It seems valuable enough to me, but I’m not your target audience.

        Yes, I did research in this for over 4 years now. They have absolutely no clue how to do this. So I’m absolutely positive I give them the right information. And it will be applied towards my specific target audience.

      While reading your list, I assume that you have something valuable to offer. Makes me wonder what’s your mission? What do you offer to whom?

        My mission is to have all dredging (baggeren) companies in the world operate at peak performance by optimizing the output of their dredgers.

        My target audience are medium to large dredging companies. I offer consultancy for dredger production increase and training for personnel so that they can use the dredger more fully.

          Oh, haha, that makes it clear. I thought it was about business developmental coaching 🙂

    For my training van Leven vol Energie: ‘Neem regie over je energie’ (Take control of your energy) I came up with 5 lessons:

    (T.a.: people who often raise the bar too high, get tired too often, are very sensitive to the emotions/opinions of others and have problems with our over stimulated (overprikkeld?) society)

    1. Let it go

    a. Body self-test: “Do I have obstructing energies?”
    b. Mind: Get rid of the sh*t!
    c. Spirit: Get rid of the negative emotions of others

    2. Re-load

    a. Body: How to re-load your body
    b. Mind: How to re-load you mind
    c. Spirit: re-load your spiritual body

    3. Stop getting over the limit
    a. Body self-test: How far do you go over the line?
    b. Mind: How to say ‘no’ and take care of yourself (instead of others)?
    c. Spirit: How to put yourself back in the center

    4. Grounding: simple exercises for massive changes in your energy

    Why put your fingers in salt?
    Why sticking your ‘tail’ in the ground doesn’t always work
    Why pulling out a cigarette with your foot is beneficial

    5. Reset (unbalance in) your body, mind and spirit in less than 5 minutes

    a. the 3 beneficial rings
    b. the golden tree
    c. take an energetic shower without using water
    d use a waterfall of light

    I wasn’t sure about the meaning of the’3 actionable steps.’ I guess:

    1. Accept the help that I was offered
    2. Making the video’s and putting them on an educational platform like Moodle
    3. Getting more clients to read my free E-book and think of 5 giveaways before I sell this training

      Hi Shirley,

      Good work, seem like very good products to me.

      Only 4.3 made me wonder what you mean with the cigarette?

      And as for the actionable steps. I interpreted them as being the steps for each product. So the three steps you put down are the bonus actions for yourself. 🙂

        Tnx for your feedback Timon. When I was writing this, I was thinking ‘How on earth would anyone think this is valuable?’ Little “mindsetback”.

        And 4.3 is, of course, a teaser: it’s actually an exercise to (pretend) you step on a cigarette and stop it from burning: you know, pulling your toes in the ground circling your ankles 🙂

          It appears that you do suffer from a slight “mind setback”, but with the help of these kinds of comments, I’m sure we can cure you of that. 😉

          And 4.3 is now clearly understood.

      Hi Shirley,
      I had never heard of Moodle. Why not make your training to sell on your own website? Or could you tell me the advantages of using Moodle?

      The set up looks good!

        Hi Boukje,

        Moodle is like Kayabi, Learndash, Wishlist: a platform where clients can follow your online training. (Unfortunately, Moodle and I have communicational problems, after a week I still don’t have it on my computer) So, the selling is on my own page, the training is not.

        Hi Boukje,
        Sorry to comment on you again here. But I need help in putting my online course online too. How would you recommend it to sell on my own website? Can it be a plugin pretty easy or do I have to buy something or let it be done by someone? (:-( Budget difficulty)
        And I’m not really great with all the technical stuff but I could fill in a template.:-)
        Love to hear how exactly you meant about to sell on your own website!

      Hi Shirley,

      I really like your distinction in body/mind/spirit. That seems to underline the way you work. Nice!

      Have a nice day,
      Mirjam

        Thanks!
        I made this distinction because many people seem to either working on the body (sport, yoga) mind (mindfulness, psych. therapy, mindset) or spirit (and get all fluffy about it). I think that if you want to grow or balance yourself you need to work on all three.
        Kindest regards!

          Haha, the fluffyness 🙂

          I totally agree with you! Good job, keep on doing it.

          Have a nice evening,
          Mirjam

      Hi Shirley Jane,
      Good topics. 1-3 are based on body, mind and spirit and feel a bit separated and don’t come together. Also on 4 and 5, it feels like there’s nothing after the three actionable steps. Maybe you can describe: Where do they start? Where do you want them to go? What are the milestones and the intermediate steps in between?
      Greetings Elisabeth

        Hi Elisabeth,

        thanks for your reply. The exercises for each part (body, mind and spirit) make them come together. You cannot to the one, without affecting the other. But I see your point. Also in 4 and 5. In my e-book, I do make ‘bridges’ to each chapter.

        And yes, I understand why you think nothing is after the 3 steps. That’s indeed a weak point of mine: I don’t see the end, all I do is think of some steps, make them, monitor them, make up some more steps. and continue. I hate planning! (In my personal challenge this month I’m dealing with this).

          First steps are important too 😉 Remember to stay in line 🙂
