The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now You’ve been asked to sharpen your pencil. You’ve been told that your dream client wants to give you their business, but one of your competitors has come in at a lower price. If you want to win, you have to do better. You have to reduce your price.You have to choices. You can sharpen your pencil, or you can sharpen your value creation.A Few Notes FirstFirst, you have to keep in mind that it’s your dream client’s responsibility to get the best deal they can they can. They have to check. They have to ask you for a lower price. It would be irresponsible of them not to.Second, most of the time your dream client is willing to invest more to get the result they really need, but they need your help in justifying the greater investment. The more you can quantify and explain how a greater investment returns greater results, the more likely you are to keep your pricing in tact. You help them sell it.Keep these points in mind before you cave in on price.Sharpen Your Value CreationWhen you are forced to defend your price, you need to push back by pointing to the value you are creating. You sharpen your argument around value before you sharpen your pencil.Instead of allowing your dream client to underinvest in the result they need, you remind them that your pricing model was built on getting them the result they need, pointing out the risks of underinvesting.You remind your dream client that the reason they haven’t been able to achieve the results that they sought in the past is because there wasn’t enough value being created. Something has to change.You point your dream client back to the higher cost they will pay by paying a lower price, that price and costs are different.The Last WordAs I write this I am reminded of how many clients I have seen over the years switch providers expecting different results only to be continually disappointed. They believed the big lie that they could produce better results and pay a lower price. Until they didn’t believe anymore.You can’t blame your dream client for choosing a lower price if you didn’t do everything in your power to sharpen your message around the value you create. If you didn’t help them to defend your price by defending it yourself, you’re going to have to sharpen your pencil.QuestionsWhen your client asks you about a lower price, does it mean that they really need to pay a lower price?Is the value that you create in any way related to the value your competitor’s create? What makes you worth paying more to obtain?Is your messaging around the value that you create so differentiated and compelling that it allows you to easily defend your pricing, the necessary investment to producing those results?How do you help your dream client to defend your pricing within his or her own organization? How do you help them answer the question as to whether or not they asked you to agree to a lower price?
President Lyndon B. Johnson once said, “A president’s hardest task is not to do what is right, but to know what is right.” Well, it seems like he knows how to get it right on Broadway.

The production grossed $1,425,001, which is more than any other play has grossed in an eight-show week in Broadway history. The show landed in the top five grossing shows, joining perennial favorites The Lion King, Wicked, The Book of Mormon and Kinky Boots.
