If you are a self-employed resume writer, career coach, or both, the only thing standing between you and a profitable business is process. Today I am very excited to have created this one-stop, comprehensive 28-page done-for-you consultation script and sales strategy for resume writing and career services.
With this process you will be able to easily show job seekers the value in your services in a way that lets you successfully close 4-figure package sales over and over again.
In fact, I previously dubbed this the “94-97% close rate with a 6-figure-plus income process” because I’ve used it with that level of results since the mid-90s AND helped many career professionals to also attain similar results.
But this is the first time ever, outside of my 1-1 clients, that I’ve put it all together in one place to make it easy for you to nail your sales, grow your business, and help lead more prospects into becoming successful clients!
Consider the results achieved by a few career professionals who tried this process:
I tried your 97% close rate script and it was like some kind of magic. I went into the spiel with the prospect, “3 different audiences, keywords, etc”. I described my packages (which thanks to you are now delineated and a choice between “Yes” and “Yes” instead of between “Yes” and some other writer) and pitched them $300 higher than previously. He acted like he couldn’t get out his credit card fast enough; like he was afraid I would go away. He tried to give me his credit card while driving! In the past they used to tell me they were driving as a way to get off the phone. But, by using your tried-and-true method, driving was not an object, it’s like I was giving away gold.
– Karen Bartell, Best in Class Resumes
Based on your advice in our first session yesterday, I changed my approach to the consultation and increased my quote to a senior executive prospect last night. I offered him a resume and LinkedIn profile at an increase of more than 400% over the rates I’ve been quoting (and not always successfully closing). He paid and we’re off and running!
– Irene Marshall, Tools for Transition
As soon as I got off of the phone with you after our third coaching session, I increased my prices and revised my packages based on your suggestions. I got an inquiry that night, used your 3-step process and the client invested for double what I was <previously> charging!
