The kind of clients who are willing to pay a high price are used to being treated extremely well. For example, some Hotels are legendary for noting each guestâ€™s preferences so the staff can make sure that the room is exactly to the guestâ€™s liking the next time they visit.
Do your research so you can customize your interactions to that client. When you're dealing with an affluent client, they should feel as if they're your first priority.
GIVE â€˜â€˜em em a Story, provide a History behind, create a Dream Make It About Value, Not About Price Wealthy customers don't check the price tag before they try on that gorgeous dress. Their eyes don't hover over the menu prices at that exclusive oceanfront restaurant. They buy or order want they want, because of the beauty, enjoyment, or other value it brings to their life. They have high standards, but appealing to their desire to save money or using the hard sell just won't work. Instead, demonstrate the value that your product or service offers. Create a narrative about the positive feelings it will create. Price should be secondary to the product.
Give them a feeling of being generous through an award for investing into a Charity or involving into an Environmental issue For example, the percentage from the sales could go to a Charity organization, etc.
