The biggest question I hear from designers and fashion business consultants is how to get paid.
If you’re a designer or fashion business consultant with a small or medium business, how can you be sure you’ll get paid?
The answer is to have a good idea of what your clients value and what they’re willing to pay for it.
Here’s what I recommend:1.
Ask yourself: Is this product worth the time and effort?
The more time and money you invest into your business, the more likely you are to get a good return on your investment.
Do you know what you’re worth?
If so, ask yourself: If the product is worth the money, then I would pay for the time.
If it’s not worth the price, then maybe I should just do it anyway.
If the price is worth it, then it’s worth it.2.
Ask: Are my clients interested in the project?
Does it have a clear direction and a clear goal?
Are there a clear goals for it?
If there are no clear goals, then you’re probably not paying for it right now.
If there is a clear aim, then ask yourself if you can deliver the value you’re offering the client.
If so then the project is worth paying for.3.
If your clients don’t care about what you do, then consider selling.
If they do care about your product, then selling is probably a good way to get them to pay more for it and give you more of a shot.4.
Do your research.
Ask a few questions about what your customers want from you and your services and see if they’re interested.
For example, what do they like about the look of your product?
What do they want to do with it?
How much do they expect it to cost?
Is there a reason they should buy it?
Do they know how much I charge?
Are they willing to accept a small discount?
Are you able to provide a better deal on your other projects?
If your design is not good, then a good deal might not be worth it right away.5.
If a project is a good fit for you, ask if there are other clients who can benefit from it.
Ask if you could do something like this for someone else’s business or for a different project.
If that’s the case, you’ll have a much better chance of getting a better return on investment.6.
Have a clear vision for your work.
Are you doing a design for someone or something you know?
Are your clients going to be happy with it or are they just looking for something different?
Is it clear how you’re going to make this product more appealing to the client?
Are the clients expectations being met?
Do you have clear plans to get there?
If not, then look for other creative ways to get more money out of your business.7.
Have clear goals.
Have you outlined the value of your design or the direction you want to take it in?
Are these clear goals that you can share?
Are those clear goals realistic?
Are any of them measurable?
If you can’t answer all of these questions, then your business is probably not worth paying attention to right now and you should stop.8.
If all of the above sounds good, but you don’t have a great product or you need a new business model to start, ask your client if they can pay for your service.
If not then you need to find a different way to make money from your business than your current business model.
If you think you’ve found the right approach to your business model, then make a list of the items you need, how much you’re willing and able to pay, and then put the list in a spreadsheet.
Start by asking your clients what they need and asking them to share that with you.
You can then create a spreadsheet of what you need and how much they’re paying for, and add the spreadsheet to your website and/or blog.
You should include a few items to show that your business isn’t for everyone, but for those who can afford it, this can be a way to build some momentum.
I’m not a business consultant.
I’m not an expert.
I don’t know the secret to building a profitable business.
I have no idea how to design a good product.
And I know nothing about how to deliver a great design.
I am simply a passionate entrepreneur who wants to build a business that makes a difference in people’s lives.
But if you’re an expert at selling, how do you do that?
That’s where this blog post comes in.
I’ve built a website that connects entrepreneurs with business ideas and a blog to share my ideas and my advice.
