The No-BS Guide to Scaling Your Solo Service Business without Selling Your Soul

The No-BS Guide to Scaling Your Solo Service Business without Selling Your Soul

As a ​​small business owner and solo female entrepreneur myself, I can relate to the experience of being a little fish in a big pond.

There are many benefits to being your own boss. But scaling a solo service business can sometimes feel like you’re in the middle of one of those outdoor obstacle courses in the mud – slipping around, trying to climb up hills, and falling flat on your face in the dirt. *Sigh*

But hey, we’re badass go-getters, and we’re never afraid of a challenge now, are we?

You’ve got your eyes firmly set on the prize: attracting new customers and making more money.

And absolutely nothing will stand in the way of achieving your growth goals!

But how do you get there without feeling like you need to transform yourself into a walking suit with a hole where the heart should be?

I’m going to let you in on a secret: business scaling doesn’t have to involve compromising on your values.

Yes! Really!

Let’s dive right into how you can successfully scale your solo business and achieve rapid growth, while still maintaining your professional dignity and integrity.

How to scale your business with authenticity and set yourself up for sustainable growth

As I’m sure you know by now, I ain’t afraid to do things my own way.

That’s why you’re here, after all!

So, without further ado, here are my top tips for scaling a business while staying true to who you are.

  1. Define your goals and values for your growing business

As your business grows, sometimes it can feel a little difficult to maintain the core values and principles that inspired you to go out on your own in the first place.

But, for 88% of consumers, authenticity is a major factor in whether they choose to support a brand.

Before you bust out the hard hat and pick ax to begin the scaling process, take a moment to reflect on and solidify your business values.

Why did you become an entrepreneur in the first place? How do you want your business to impact your client’s lives? What kind of audience are you hoping to resonate with?

As a solo service business, your company’s culture is what’s going to set you apart from your competitors and attract your dream clients.

By defining and prioritizing your values and weaving them into your business plan from the get-go, you’re setting yourself up for the kind of success that will align with your core beliefs, no matter how far your business goes.

  1. Get a hold on your internal processes

You won’t be able to grow your solo service business if you’re constantly chasing your tail, are you?

I totally get it. You’re super busy tending to your clients’ needs, so you never seem to have the time to catch up with yourself – let alone get ahead of your schedule.

I’ve got some bad news, though. Unless you straighten out your internal business processes, it’ll be hard to carve out the space to focus on growth.

Listen, you’re a one-woman show – so you can’t exactly take on a whole pile of extra work to grow your business.

But guess what? Getting on top of your business operations is the single best strategy to increase sales and revenue without actually adding additional work onto your already-pretty-hefty plate. (Now that’s what we love to hear!)

All you’ve gotta do is take a close look at your existing processes. Identify areas where you tend to run a little chaotic and see how you can make better use of your time and energy.

If you’re not already using a project management system to help you map out your day, I recommend looking into one now! They’re great tools for managing your time, ensuring nothing slips through the cracks, and prioritizing super-important tasks over smaller stuff that can wait.

  1. Outsource tasks to free up time

You’re a solo female entrepreneur, so you’re basically Wonder Woman! But that doesn’t mean you have to be all the damn time.

As your business grows, you’re going to have more tasks and clients to deal with, which is great! But all that extra work will eat into your schedule big time.

It’s ok (in fact, it’s more than ok) to outsource and automate certain tasks so you can focus on delivering your best service. And, y’know, so your head doesn’t explode from the sheer stress of it all.

I know delegating certain aspects of your business can be tough. (It’s your baby, after all!) But honey, you gotta let go at some point. It’s the only way you’ll reach the heights you’ve always dreamed of for your solo business!

Consider how many customers you have and how much of your time is spent doing tasks that anyone could do. Outsource these and put your badass skills and expertise to good use instead.

Whether you’re hoping to take on new employees down the road, or you want to fly solo forever, outsourcing basic or administrative tasks to a collaborator you can trust can make it so much easier to achieve growth while maintaining your standards.

  1. Prioritize your sanity (no one else is gonna do it for you)

Growing your own solo business is super exciting.

You know what’s not, though? Burnout.

While working hard to reach your ambitious goals is essential, we’re not about hustle culture here.

Successful scaling relies on you actually being able to respond to growth in a healthy way. If you’re walking around like the living dead, how on earth are you gonna do that?

It’s super important to balance business growth with your personal values by carving out a sustainable work-life balance that suits you.

Don’t be afraid to set boundaries – whether with your clients or yourself – and deliberately clock off at the end of each day.

The danger when you work for yourself is allowing yourself to feel like you’re always on. This is a BIG mistake if you actually want to scale your business – because if you don’t look after yourself, how can you look after your business?

It’s your time to shine! Successfully achieve business growth without selling your soul

Now you’re ready to take leaps and bounds as you scale your solo business like the badass boss that you are.

Remember to always do what feels right to you. Maintain your authenticity on your unique growth journey so you don’t feel like you’ve swapped your soul for success.

Ready to break all the conventional rules as you take your business to the next level?

At Emtwo, we curate solid business plans and marketing strategies that support growth and long-term success for small businesses just like yours.

From Invisible to Irresistible: Building a Brand That Stands Out in a Crowded Market

From Invisible to Irresistible: Building a Brand That Stands Out in a Crowded Market

If you feel like every other person is an entrepreneur these days – you’re not going crazy – you’re just living in the digital age, baby.

Hell, even your neighbor’s dog is building a brand for himself, posting unboxing videos of his favorite chew toys and treats online.

While the explosion of online content has given us access to an abundance of adorable dog videos (the true purpose of the internet), it’s not without its challenges.

It’s becoming increasingly tricky for badass go-getters like you to get off the starting blocks in a never-ending sea of competition.

The importance of standing out online as a coach or business consultant

A whopping 29.7% of all business in the US now happens online, so if you’re not making waves in the digital world as a high-flying coach or business consultant, you’re missing out on a big old chunk of potential clients right away.

Making your coaching business stand out online is essential if you want to grow your client base and target your dream clients directly.

But how, you ask?

  • Turn those heads: If you got it, flaunt it! Creating a stand-out brand will help you captivate your ideal clients’ attention and interest.
  • Warm ‘em up: Especially in the coaching world, it’s super important to establish customer trust online – and stand-out branding does just that!
  • Get more clicks: The more eye-catching and engaging your branding is, the higher click-through rate you’ll get, boosting SEO in the process.
  • Wear the crown: Set yourself apart from others in the industry as a real pro who knows their stuff and isn’t afraid to shine bright.

Ok, ok, that all sounds great! So how do we get there?

How to make your brand stand out and overtake your competitors

Cutting through the digital noise has become somewhat of an Olympic sport (and I’m guessing I’m not the only one who flunked gym). So, how do you make your brand stand out so you can start getting noticed by your target audience?

Without further ado, let’s explore my top tips to make your coaching brand oh-so-irresistibly delicious to your dream clients.

  1. Pinpoint your ultra-fabulous unique selling points (USP)

The fact that you’re reading this blog and are ready to transform your business with branding that breaks away from the norm tells me all I need to know.

But, when it comes to marketing yourself online against literally countless other coaches and business consultants, you’ve gotta show what you’re made of and dazzle like the bright star you are.

Your USP is the essence of what makes your brand so special – so take some time to really consider what that is.

What sets you apart from the rest? In what way can you deliver more value to potential clients?

Maybe you’re super skilled at working with a specific niche or have a unique process that suits a certain personality type.

Whatever it is, most brands that find success in the coaching and consulting industry have this already sussed – so get to work on defining your USP and be sure that it resonates with your target audience.

  1. Create a distinctive visual brand identity that captivates potential customers

It doesn’t matter how skilled you are as a coach or business consultant. If your visual branding isn’t up to scratch, you ain’t gonna make the cut. Sorry!

Yep, it really is that cutthroat out there in the digital landscape. So here are a few tips on curating compelling visual branding that speaks to who you are as a professional, connects with your target audience, and is super eye-catching, too.

  • Wear your logo with pride: Keep your logo design simple, personal, and cute so your brand is instantly recognizable as YOU!
  • Color is everything, honey: Choose your color palette wisely. Ensure it makes sense for your coaching approach and suits your unique personality.
  • Make sure your text is legible: Hey, listen, we all love a fancy font from time to time. But remember, your audience needs to be able to read your content.
  • Be consistent across all social media platforms: Keep your branding consistent throughout your entire online presence, including in all social media posts.

There’s no room to be apologetic when it comes to creating unique visual branding to help you rise above the noise online.

Remember to (always) have fun with your visuals and make sure that you love them just as much as I know your dream clients will.

  1. Craft a compelling brand story to connect with your target audience

A brand story? Isn’t that just something digital marketers tell themselves at night to get to sleep?

Let me tell you something: when it comes to selling, storytelling is everything!

Don’t believe me? Well then, ask the 55% of people who are more likely to purchase from a company if they connect with their brand story.

It’s super important to carve out your unique brand story – what drives you as a coach, who you love to serve, and where you’ll take them – so your target audience can easily see themselves as part of your journey.

An essential part of creating your unique brand story is determining a strong brand voice that you feel represents who you are as a professional and connects with your target audience on an emotional and human level.

Once you’ve got it all figured out, infuse your specific brand story – told through your unique brand voice – in all of your content. We’re talking social media posts, blog posts, marketing emails, video content, and anything else you might be sharing to boost your brand.

  1. Implement marketing strategies to amplify your brand and stay relevant

The digital world literally never stops. So, if you want to stay at the forefront of your audience’s mind, you’ve got to work hard to gain and maintain their already-divided attention with a gold-standard marketing strategy.

Here are the core areas of marketing you need to think about:

  • Social media: You hate to love it, and you love to hate it – but it’s here to stay! So, ensure a strong, consistent presence across all channels.
  • Email marketing: Create an email marketing campaign advertising your latest offerings or local events.
  • Blogging: Regularly publish blog posts to provide value to your audience, show off your expertise, and boost SEO.
  • PPC advertising: If you want to expand your reach even further, you can always set up a paid advertising campaign targeting your dream clients.
  • SEO: Keep your website fresh and up-to-date with relevant content and keywords that your target audience uses to search for your services online.

Struggling to come up with new ideas for your digital marketing strategy on your own?

Why They Won’t Bite: The Ugly Truth about Generic Service Offers

Why They Won’t Bite: The Ugly Truth about Generic Service Offers

Wondering why your services are gathering more dust than dollars? Tired of being another face in the crowd of indistinguishable service offers? You’re not alone, friend.

After helping coaches and solo service providers market themselves for two decades, I can safely say that a generic service offering is pretty much a one-way ticket to Nowheresville.

Why is this the case?

Well, here’s the painful truth — generic service offerings are like wallpaper. They’re just there. They don’t pop, they don’t catch eyes, and they certainly don’t get clicks. They’re forgettable, and in the online world, that’s a cardinal sin.

If you want to promote your service successfully and get more dream customers to bite, you need to make it stand out!

How? Well, buckle up, because we’re diving into why your ideal clients aren’t buying — and how to turn things around!

We’re talking ALL the whys and hows — why your ideal clients are swiping left and how to make them swoon so hard they hit the “Buy Now” button like it owes them money.

Let’s go!

Stand Out or Miss Out: Why Unique Service Offers Work

Okay so, what is a service offer anyway?

A service offer is your irresistible pitch — a sexy bundle of kick-ass services and undeniable perks that speak to your ideal client’s deepest cravings and solves their peskiest problems.

Here are some awesome service offering examples to get inspired by!

Now look, I get it — creating unique service offers might sound daunting. Many businesses struggle with it, and for good reason.

But let me lay down some truth. Offering something truly unique is your golden ticket to standing out in an oversaturated market.

Why? Let me tell ya! Unique service offerings will:

  • Stop Scroll Fatigue: With so many near-identical offers, a unique proposal jolts your prospect out of their endless scroll.
  • Trigger Emotional Buys: Tailored offers resonate on a personal level, making your prospects feel understood and catered to.
  • Boost Word of Mouth: A service that feels custom-made is a story worth sharing, turning clients into brand advocates.

Ready to become a magnet for those high-paying clients? Follow me!

Step 1: Tune Into Your Ideal Client’s Vibe 

Before you can whip up an offer that turns heads, you gotta know what those heads are thinking!

Understanding the unique desires and pain points of your target market is the cornerstone of creating a service offer that virtually sells itself.

Now, why do you gotta be a mind-reader all of a sudden? Well, knowing the desires and needs of your dream clients lets you craft an offer so spot-on, it’s like you’ve read their diary. 

And who can resist something that gets them so deeply? Not me! My TikTok-made-me-do-it impulse buys are proof of that.

Digging Deep

Start by diving into market research. Use surveys, social listening, or even one-on-one interviews to understand your ideal clients inside and out.

Are they looking for more personalization? Faster results? Spell out exactly what your audience wants, so you can give it to them!

Let’s say you’re a career coach, for example, and your research shows that mid-level managers want a quick, actionable roadmap to promotions.

Bingo! You’ve got the seed for a super specialized coaching program they simply can’t say no to!

Step 2: (read in the Godfather’s voice) Crafting a Service Offer They Can’t Refuse

So, you’ve figured out what your ideal client wants. Fab! Now, it’s time to translate this intel into a service offering that’s as personalized as a Taylor Swift love song.

Why so personal? I’m glad you asked! A service offer that speaks directly to your ideal client’s needs and desires is like a love song written just for them — it bypasses the brain and goes straight to the heart.

(Awww)

Writing Your Love Song Service Offering

  1. Feature List: Start by listing the features your service package will have. Whether it’s 1:1 coaching sessions or personalized checklists, list absolutely everything.
  2. Tie to Needs: Now connect those service features to the needs and desires you’ve uncovered.
  3. Sprinkle in Benefits: What will each feature do for your ideal client? What is the benefit of each feature? What are the end results they can expect?

What do I mean by this? Don’t just offer “Career Coaching” – offer a “90-Day Level-Up Bootcamp”, complete with weekly check-ins, a personalized growth roadmap, and 24/7 text support for those emergency confidence boosts.

You know, the good stuff!
The juicy bits.

The “wow, that sounds amazing!”

Step 3: Paint Their Dream Picture: How Your Offer Changes Lives

Sure, your offer may be packed with fantastic features, but it’s the benefits that seal the deal. We’re talking about translating those features into real-world results.

You see, features are just the specs (snore!); benefits are the experience. People buy experiences. See where I’m going with this?

You want to really take them into the experience through your service offering, help them imagine themselves smack dab in the middle of it and how life looks on the other side!

Paint a Vivid Picture

  • Tell a Story: Create a narrative around your service.
  • Use Real Testimonials: Let satisfied clients do the talking.
  • Showcase Case Studies: Got data? Flaunt it, honey!
  • Visual Elements: Add images or videos to support your story.
  • Call to Action: Close with a powerful CTA that ties back to the benefits.

For example, don’t just say you offer resume reviews – tell them how you’ll turn their resume into a personal brand masterpiece that grabs eyeballs from top-level execs and helps them nab their dream job!

And what will their dream job provide? A better life, more free time, and more money to enjoy said better life and free time. Say it loud and clear in your service offering, and you’ll see those customers rolling in. Trust me!

Step 4: Disarm the Doubts: Smashing Objections to Seal the Deal

You’ve dazzled them with your irresistible service offerings, but there might still be lingering doubts. You’ve got to tackle these head-on to convert those hesitant browsers into buyers.

People fear making the wrong choice. By tackling their objections head-on, you make it easy for them to say yes.

Play Offense, Not Defense

Anticipate common objections and preemptively counter them. Whether it’s pricing, timing, or skepticism about results, address these concerns proactively in your sales copy or FAQs.  

  • FAQ It: Create an FAQ section that knocks down those objections one by one for each of your service packages.
  • Risk-Free Guarantees: A money-back guarantee can tip them from “maybe” to “hell yes!”
  • Real-Time Reassurance: Use chat support or timely follow-up emails to quell any last-minute jitters.
  • Free Services: Why not offer a little free trial of your service offerings? That way, people know what they’re getting themselves into and won’t be afraid to dive right in!

Ready to Transform Your Generic Service Offerings into a Money Magnet?

You’ve got the steps, now it’s time to make your move. Don’t be just another name on a list. Be the name. The only limit is how far you’re willing to stretch your imagination and courage. 

So, are you in or out? 

Let me help you say goodbye to cookie-cutter offers and craft a service so unique, your clients won’t just want it — they’ll need it. If you’re ready to ditch the generic and embrace the extraordinary, reach out to me today, and let’s give your business the glow-up it deserves!

Quit Playing It Safe: How Bold Branding Can Transform Your Coaching or Consulting Business

Quit Playing It Safe: How Bold Branding Can Transform Your Coaching or Consulting Business

As a kickass business coach or consultant, your goal is to uplift and inspire your clients to be the best possible version of themselves so they can achieve their long-term goals and success.

But how are you supposed to do that if you’re not presenting your most authentic and unapologetic self online?

Sure, you’re an awesome coach with incredible people skills, a profound understanding of your industry, and a capacity for empathy that (almost) rivals any dog I’ve met and immediately fallen in love with.

But I’ve got news for you – so do a lot of your competitors out there.

So, how do you position yourself as a leading business coach so you can start making the kind of difference you know you’re capable of?

*** Drumroll, please ***

BOLD BRANDING!

The power of bold branding

For 88% of consumers, authenticity plays a crucial role in which brands they choose to support.

So, when it comes to branding yourself as a certified coach or business mentor, you’ve got to be true to your own identity as a leader.

If you decide to play it safe or copy how your peers present themselves, you’ll fade into the background and get lost in the depths of search engine results pages like some kind of digital antique.

You know what that means? Someone with bigger, bolder branding will snatch that potential client right from under your nose!

It doesn’t matter how skilled or qualified you are. Eye-catching branding with a compelling message will ultimately capture the hearts of your dream clients.

Why playing it safe holds you back as a business coach or consultant

When you’re at the helm of a coaching or consulting business, you’re not only selling your fabulous services and expertise. You’re also selling a feeling.

What the heck am I talking about?

Don’t worry! I haven’t started guzzling some questionable tea as part of my morning routine (yet!)

Your services aim to get people from point A to B, whether professionally, personally, or spiritually, right?

But putting it like that isn’t exactly going to get the phone ringing off the hook, is it?

As an independent business owner, you’ve got to sell confidence, passion, and clarity – all the things your clients are hoping to experience during a coaching program.

If they can’t see it in you, they won’t feel inspired enough by you to trust you to lead them toward the kind of success they’re aiming for.

Fearless branding plays a massive role in propelling you forward as a professional business coach or consultant, so if you want to reach the great heights you’ve envisioned for yourself, it’s time to get on board.

Let’s uncover how you can make it happen with branding that’s as unmistakable as the look our dogs give us when they’re ready for their d-i-n-n-e-r.

Defining your unique brand personality as a business owner

Branding is the essence of your business, conveying your values, personality, and unique selling point.

But when you don’t always know which version of yourself you’ll wake up to on any given day, how are you supposed to know your brand’s personality?

It requires a certain amount of time and energy to figure out your unique brand identity for sure, but once you do, all the other elements of marketing your business online instantly become so much easier.

How to determine your brand personality:

  • Get in touch with who you are
  • Define your company values
  • Identify your target audience

Doesn’t sound too scary, does it?

Once you know yourself a little better, you can begin to take inspiration from other brands by determining which brand archetype your business resonates with best, looking at which other brands fall into the same category, and seeing what kind of messaging they use.

This will help inform your brand voice. But remember, always be authentically YOU!

It’s ok to take inspiration from companies that speak to you as a consumer, as that will make sense for your brand identity.

But you’ve always got to be fearless in leaning into the true essence of what makes you so unique – it’s your secret weapon in marketing yourself and your services online!

Building a visual identity that stands out

While there are more elements to the brand identity of your coaching business than aesthetics, 55% of first impressions of your business are based on visuals alone.

So, you know, it’s super important to pack a punch in that department if you want to keep your potential clients engaged from the get-go and interested enough to read on.

Your visual branding, from your company logo to your unique color scheme, should be instantly recognizable as yours, super memorable, and stand out from the crowd while still being in tune with the aesthetics your target audience are receptive to.

For example, if you’re a spiritual coach, you may want to opt for calming neutrals, earthy tones, and a minimalist layout. But if you’re a business consultant for digital agencies, you may want to use a bolder design, with colors that evoke excitement, passion, and urgency.

In other words, read the room while still leaving space for you in there.

Crafting a memorable client experience

Branding also relates to how potential clients experience your business online.

The visuals, messaging, and flow of your content on your website all play a significant part in creating a seamless, enjoyable experience for each of your clients.

Expectations for customer experience vary depending on your industry and the kind of clients you’re hoping to target.

Take a luxury brand, for example. Their website might be super understated, with little detail or information available at first glance to create a high-end, exclusive feel. (Ooh lah lah, so fancy!)

However, when it comes to business coaching and consulting, you’re there to guide and help people. You don’t want potential clients to remember your website for all the wrong reasons, so ensure access to information is simple and direct.

Don’t forget to wow your online visitors with impactful messaging and content that speaks to who you are as a coach, how you’ll help them solve their problems, and why you’re the best at what you do.

Case studies: How we helped this client solve a specific problem with bold branding

Meet Paula Bradison, a client of ours, and the ambitious founder of three separate businesses.

When she realized it was time to merge the three and create a singular brand identity in the form of People AK, she called upon Emtwo and the incredible force that is our BrandSmash package to get her there.

We were tasked with weaving each business together with an infused brand personality. We uncovered the perfect way to let elements of all three of them shine, while giving them unified visual branding and messaging.

We’re super proud to have created an impactful brand personality that showcased Paula’s vision and passion for her business, and helped her reach even more of her dream clients than ever before!

Naturally, both existing and new clients instantly connected with her “people first” ethos, which pulled them in right off the bat, thanks to her website’s clear focus and personality-packed branding.

Navigating the Premium Pricing Mindset: It’s Time to Level Up Your Business

Navigating the Premium Pricing Mindset: It’s Time to Level Up Your Business

I say this with love. It’s time you finally start acting like the badass entrepreneur that you really are.

All too often, the greatest barrier to our success is ourselves.

Whether that’s by clinging to your comfort zone or smothering yourself in your limiting beliefs, it’s time to stop your inner leeches from sucking the potential right out of you.

Shockingly, but unfortunately, unsurprisingly, women entrepreneurs charge 28% less for their services than their male counterparts.

And while that is a much more complex issue than we have time to delve into in this blog post, there is surely something we can do to level the playing field.

What, you ask? Simply put, by charging more money.

If you want to start attracting the kind of clientele you dream of and get that competitive advantage against even your biggest competitors and premium brands, you’ve got to put yourself in their arena.

Charging premium prices for your coaching or consulting services places more than just a higher monetary value on what you offer.

The benefits of targeting high-paying clients with a premium price tag

Ok, listen up, people, if you want to walk the walk, you’ve got to be able to talk the talk.

And if this idea makes you shudder, well then put on a coat because you won’t be able to get far in business without confidence.

I mean, I get the reservations, of course.

You might be anxious that if you ask your clients to pay premium prices for your services, your existing clients will get upset and take their business elsewhere or that potential clients will go to a cheaper alternative.

You know what I say to that? Let them.

Before you call me crazy, let’s look at the key benefits of upgrading to a premium pricing model:

  • Affords more time to do your best work
  • Increases client satisfaction
  • Minimizes potential bad fit clients
  • Increases your brand value

Sounds too good to be true?

It’s really not! When you start charging properly for your services with a premium price tag, it has a knock-on effect on everything else.

Charge more for your services > Lose lower-paying clients. > Quality of your output is increased > Attract more high-paying clients > Receive referrals from high-end clients > Enjoy a full inbox and a long client list.

Ta-da!

How to create a premium pricing strategy

Now that you’re sold on a premium pricing model for your business (you’ve got to trust me and your instinct on this one), it’s time to dive right into creating a premium pricing strategy that’s right for your business and your industry so you can start attracting high paying clients.

  1. Positioning yourself as an expert to attract high-paying clients

Higher-paying clients are willing to pay a hefty fee for the best services available, so they aren’t going to come to you if they think they can get better elsewhere.

If you’ve got the expertise, your price tag needs to reflect that. Otherwise, you’re never going to be taken as seriously as other business owners who are not afraid to ask for a high fee from premium clients.

  1. Building a high-end brand identity

Marketing is everything in business. Think about any luxury brand you’re willing to pay top dollar for. How do they present themselves?

In order to increase your brand value, you have to create a certain image of your brand while charging accurately.

Think about it. If you came across a high-end-looking website selling luxury handmade Italian leather bags at a fraction of their regular cost, would you trust them enough to purchase from them, or make the fair assessment that it may be too good to be true?

  1. Crafting a tailored customer experience

Now, while a lot of the premium pricing model comes down to simply having the courage to increase your prices, you have to offer your customers a certain experience to meet their expectations and make your premium rate worthwhile.

Ensure your website speaks directly to your target audience, offers a premium user experience, and makes accessing your services online super easy. Once you’ve begun communicating with your new potential clients, make them feel special and part of an exclusive community for a truly personalized experience.

  1. Developing a strategic marketing plan and pricing strategy

As I said earlier, if you want to walk the walk, you’ve got to be able to talk the talk. But if you are talking the talk, you’ve got to be sure you can walk the walk. You know what I’m talking about? *Head spins in Phoebe saying “they don’t know that we know they know.”*

Therein lies the case and point. You don’t want to spout a load of trash in the hopes of appearing high-end, but really, you don’t know what you’re talking about. Get super clear on what you’re offering and create a tailored marketing strategy that resonates with your target audience and reflects your premium pricing strategy.

Case studies of successful solo service providers

If you’re wondering if this can really be done, our clients are living proof.

Take Katrina Jamison of Legend Coaching, for example.

She was looking for a brand refresh to reposition herself as an expert in her field and target high-end clients and ambitious female entrepreneurs.

Our BrandSmash was the perfect solution for Katrina’s strategic revamp, transforming her brand to align with her new goals and supporting her vision of becoming a premium brand.

Legend Coaching was totally reimagined for the better, undergoing a name change and a new brand identity, and receiving a fresh website design, sales funnel, and an automated email marketing series to capture her target audience.

Your Brand, Premium Ready

The shift to a premium pricing mindset isn’t just about charging more. It’s about recognizing the value you bring to your clients and aligning your pricing to reflect that. It’s about moving past fear, overcoming societal expectations, and positioning yourself in the market where you truly belong.

Now is the time to make a change. Every day you wait, you’re leaving opportunities—and money—on the table. More importantly, you’re depriving clients of the opportunity to experience the incredible value and transformation you can offer.
