Don’t you love when someone asks for help on social media and tons of people chime in with advice.
Then, months go by and that same person is asking again for the same help.
Did you know that…
free advice is rarely taken, is often not valued and rarely is it acted upon.
“Agreed Rob! Research has shown that one of the highest correlated variables with both results and customer satisfaction is price — the more they invest, the more likely they take action do something with it, and therefore the happier they are about it. So slashing prices or giving out too much free is actually a disservice to the people who need the connection and drive to take action by actually having meaningful skin in the game.” – Jeff Dousharm
“Hello Rob, I’ve been saying this for years. FREE is generally WORTHLESS! And I have multiple examples of how I have injured people by giving them free advice. If you love the person, make them invest something so that they value what you have to offer.” – Michael Keller
Exactly…you owe it to yourself to charge for your knowledge and to hold those around you accountable. They need to take action and they need to invest in themselves and have skin in the game.
