Seems like everybody’s got a price,
I wonder how they sleep at night
When the sale comes first and the truth comes second
just stop a minute and smile
Excerpt from Jessie J-Price Tag
In this world, you have a price for yourself.
I have a price for myself. And so do you. It’s what you want to get paid for what you do. It can called as “business” too.
Some may argue it’s not for sale. Some may think they price themselves too low. Some overpriced themselves.
Different people comes with different package.
PRICE is what someone’s willingness to pay in exchange to get the value that could make their life better.
For instance, Apple Inc price its Iphone, starting from USD199. I would say it’s expensive. However, they managed to make sales. In fact, a big sales!. Just an opening weekend, they sold over 9million iphones 5C and 5 combined.
Why?? Because customers want the values that Iphone would bring to their life? What are the values? If you asked me, I would say “exclusivity and prestige”. Some may want its design and interface values. It’s up to individual.After all, no matter how expensive the price would be, if the value gained are well compensated, trust me it’s a good buy.
Same as career world!
So let’s transform ourselves into “Apple” pricing strategy. Add in more values in ourselves. So we can tag the price higher. Employers would want to pay us to get full use of our values.
Please don’t miss the boat. It’s never wrong to put a higher pricetag provided the values you provide would maximize the employer’s performance.
Be smart, value yourself more, be bold, be italic,
