6-Figure-Plus Video Master Class for Resume Writers & Career Coaches

Free Master’s Video Course for Resume Writers & Career Coaches Who Want to Close 4-Figure Sales

To close the high-dollar sales in career services has NOTHING. TO DO. WITH. SELLING.

It’s all about an educational process I, CDI founder Laura DeCarlo, call edu-fearacating.

When you build edu-fearacating into an easy, foundational consultation process, it will be (as two of my private clients have now said),

“Like you are giving away gold and your clients can’t get their credit cards out fast enough to give you”.

So it’s not so much a matter of mastering a HUGE process as it is to understanding the key tweaks to what you are doing and how they can powerfully shift your success.

With that in mind, I’ve created a series of short 3-10 minute tip videos that let resume writers and career coaches like you pick and choose the topic that you need to get into your groove.

Put all the videos together, and you have a master’s class that helps you:

  • Capitalize on a 3-step process that moves job seekers from the perception of it’s either a cheap DIY or an expensive luxury to recognizing your service is a MUST-HAVE at any price.
  • Make clients feel the package you suggest is instinctively the “just right” fit, even if they came in only needing a bandaid.
  • Overcome your own self-talk that has held you back from claiming and quoting the rates you deserve or is stopping you from recommending complete packages. Better yet, getting to “yes” with those offers.
  • Understand when and how to talk price to keep the prospect engaged and action-oriented.
  • Utilize simple wording and processes to re-engage a prospect who has to think about it.
  • Build the right packages for positioning your offerings to ensure both you and your clients have a win-win outcome.
  • Obliterate your weaknesses with an easy up-front analysis so you always put your best foot forward when prospects ask the unnerving questions.
  • Learn how to get clients to provide service feedback that will pre-close prospects on your website or LinkedIn profile like nothing else you’ve ever tried.
  • Convert the lurkers on your email list into buyers without discounting prices.

It’s remarkably easy to get out of your own way when you have a simple process to follow.

Consider what Cathy Lanzalaco of InspireCareers.com said about this process:

“Working with Laura has transformed my sales process. Through use of her methodology I’m now closing sales at slightly more than double my former prices. Her wisdom and guidance also allowed me to begin experiencing sales breakthroughs with a particularly challenging population and even better, let me take a 2-week vacation while still having the largest revenue month of the year. I am excited about what success 2020 will bring!”

So, if you are ready to get a taste of that success, check the video series out now.
