How to Offer a High-End Coaching Program with Merel Kriegsman


Ten years ago, Merel was an opera singer, performing on big stages across Europe. However, the little pay she received left her frustrated and together with her husband, who was a singer like her, they decided to quit and generate their income in another way.  Merel wanted to do something that would educate her as well as support her family, and chose to set up a business as a copywriter. This allowed her and her husband to live wherever they wanted, and they took over her husband’s parents' 180 acre farm in the Canadian countryside, while both working on Merel’s copywriting business.  But then, Merel helped a couple of her clients with their launches and they didn’t convert. She didn’t doubt her copy writing skills, but she realised that there was so much more involved in marketing and selling an offer than just copy.  It drove her to look deeper into offer-creation, pricing sweet-spots, mindset and high-ticket lead-generation. As it turned out, she was great at it, and as she applied her knowledge, her clients were increasingly experiencing success. Today, helping women have this breakthrough and giving them the courage to charge what they are worth has become her speciality.  In this episode of the Sigrun Show, Merel talks about what defines a high-end offer, what you should consider when putting your offer out there and how you can shift your clients when you start charging more.   This episode is for you if you want to start attracting high-end clients or if you already have a high-end offer but are not sure how to find your ideal clients.  “If you’re in your zone of genius, clients will flock to you if you’re putting yourself out there.”- Merel Kriegsman What you will get out of this episode:  Merel’s love story and how it brought her from Europe to Canada  The reason why Merel quit her singing career  How Merel got into copywriting  The point in which Merel realised she was destined for more  Merel’s definition of a high-end offer  Examples of high-end offers  Merel’s advice on how to create a high-end coaching program  How to shift your clients when you put out a high-end offer  Are you looking for more information around high-end offers? Find out how to use a challenge to sell you high-end program.   Selling Your High-End Offer to the Right Client If you consider running a high-end program, the key is to add a lot of personal attention into it. People won’t pay a high-end price if the entire program is pre-recorded. What attracts high-end clients is an individual, customised experience where they get direct value from your expertise. Introducing hot-seats, discussions and Q&A’s helps provide a unique experience, as well as getting to know the people in your program, check in on them and focus on being there for them.   But once people have designed their high-end offer, they often get stuck with selling it. Merel has created a checklist, 40+ ways to call in your high ticket clients and make them buy from you, which contains great advice on how you should enter into the selling process.  The key is: You don’t find your high-end clients, they find you. You don’t make them buy, they want to buy.  Shifting, Niching and Positioning  It’s about shifting your messaging, niching and positioning - these are the three core things you should be thinking about before you create the content with which you want to attract high-end clients.  “A mistake many people make is that they want to serve too many different people. You can’t do that when you’re offering a high-end program,” Merel points out. People paying a high price want a very specific expertise. That’s why you have to do research on what the profitable niches are, and then be very specific about your offer and niche it down.  High-end clients won’t be attracted with the same message that speaks to low-end people. It’s important you know exactly who your ideal clients are in order to provide an intimate connection and a customised experience. Specific target groups have specific traits, and in order to personalise your offer, you need to go the extra mile to figure out what the things are that your ideal client really wants and needs. If your messaging is off, it will attract the wrong people to your offer.  For more great tips on attracting high-end clients, check out Merel’s checklist.  Did this episode help you get clearer on how to attract high-end clients?

The Design Business Show

Merel Kriegsman - Business Mentor, helps women break free financially by showing them how to position themselves as the Hermes bag of their industry (high-end!), and charge accordingly. Her work centers around breaking generational chains of scarcity (AKA copying your moms toxic patterns that kept her financially dependent) - and giving female business owners the skills they need to make as much money they desire. And that… makes them powerful beyond measure. When she’s not showing her students how to get to 5-figures/mo (for starters!) you can find her in her veg patch with her hubby and tiny daughters, on their 160 acre farm in rural Canada. Here’s what we covered on the episode: How I met Merel in the fall of 2019 at Sage & Tarzan’s Legendary Life Event, where we were both guest mentors The story behind Merel’s “why,” and how in her mid-twenties she did a money challenge and realized she hadn’t earned that much money in her business How earning money by helping people fully healed her How Merel gave up her singing career and learned everything about sales, marketing, and promoting yourself How Merel started her business as a copywriter and how she can help designers with clients and positioning How Merel realized she needed to position herself as high-end & how designers can do the same by not worrying about what’s allowed and what’s not allowed How working hard for your business creates privileges, like setting your own prices How setting financial goals will help you set prices for your business How focusing on your niche, messaging and positioning can help create a business that is referable How Merel uses social proof to leverage herself to potential clients and how you can do the same to change how you position yourself Merel’s process for getting fantastic testimonials and how to help clients through the process so you can attract more customers How Merel’s organic launch made 350,000 dollars without paid traffic How Merel tried to do paid traffic when starting her launch and the lessons she learned from it How Merel uses nurturing as a business tool to get quality numbers for her programs How important the months leading up to a launch are and how you can nurture leads and clients How often Merel is on social media and how often she emails her subscribers each week How nurturing consistently, having personality, not talking just business and sharing credibility will help you convert potential clients Why it’s guaranteed if you open Merel’s emails, you’ll cry, laugh, learn something and make shifts in your business Why Merel doesn’t share service prices publicly or on her website and the reason behind it How if you do your branding well and share social proof, you can create high-end positioning How Merel’s contract and payment process works for clients Why service providers need to be way more badass with their boundaries Merels gift, How to Position Yourself as High-End, for listeners on positioning Merel’s free group, Create your Money Vortex How you can connect with Merel online Links mentioned: Merel’s Website Merel’s Stellar Testimonials Guide Create Your Money Vortex Connect with Merel on Instagram Merel’s gift, Position Yourself High-End in 5 Simple Steps Like what you heard?
