My biggest takeaway this week: Why Your Business Needs a Value Ladder
The idea and marketing strategy behind a value ladder continues to amaze me! Essentially, a value ladder is a framework for mapping out your product or services visually in an ascending order based on value and price.
A value ladder allows you to cater to your clients needs no matter where they are at in your value ladder.
At the very bottom of your value ladder, you want to offer a product or service that is practically free. The idea behind this is to give them exposure to who you are, and provide some sort of value to them.
For example, this could be a free pdf download which addresses an issue your client may be facing in return for their name and email address. Now as your client ascends your value ladder, the value and the price will increase accordingly.
The mistake that many businesses make is that they limit their products and services, but more importantly, don’t look at their products and services from the lens of a value ladder.
For example, imagine you are in the fitness industry and provide workout videos to help get your clients in the best shape of their life. If the only thing you offer is a 8-weeks total body workout video series for $49, you would be missing out on so much sales. Yes, you could try to get as many people to purchase your $49 product but what if we shifted our perspective and looked at it from a value proposition.
For example, someone who has completed the 8-weeks course has received tremendous value from you. Now, what if you could offer them something more from a value perspective that would make them feel even greater about themselves and see even better results!
Chances are really high that they will opt-in for this additional upsells! The goal is to keep moving them up the ladder and provide some amazing value.
For example, our next step could be a subscription to a personal coaching program where your clients have direct access to a certified coach who will create customized solutions that will get your clients the Hollywood physique they are looking for.
