Listen to it on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

In this podcast episode, I address the common concerns language teachers have about pricing their lessons and products. I emphasise the need for a strategic approach to pricing, highlighting that it is not just a random decision but a way to position oneself in the market and attract the right audience. The host explains that specialising in a certain area or target audience allows teachers to charge higher prices, as it demonstrates expertise and value. They also discuss the importance of understanding the customer journey and communicating the benefits and outcomes of language learning. Overall, the episode encourages teachers to have confidence in their pricing and to continually evaluate and adjust their prices as their business grows.

Make sure that you have a look at my £9 pricing course here to get help in that too!
