His marketing strategies, systems & campaigns generate well over 100 million dollars in revenue, yearly for his clients. He is the author of the best-selling book, “Deep Pocket Clients”, and has been featured on countless top-ranked, business & marketing shows, around the world.

In our discussion, Johnson talked to me about:

  • Identifying and working with high value clients
  • the mindset of Marketing as an investment

Show Notes from this episode with Johnson Emmanuel of Havanzer

Key points and takeaways from this episode include:

  • Marketing is an investment, not an expense.
  • Every business has different needs depending on where it’s at.
  • Make sure that you can actually help your clients to get the results that they need.
  • The best way to fight the pricing war is by not retaliating on price.
  • Don’t say no to your market, if your market isn’t saying no to you. If you believe nobody is going to pay your high-ticket offer, that is just you and not your market that is saying so. 
  • People will pay for transformation. If you believe that what you are selling is truly going to be useful and will provide results, people will pay for it.
  • People struggle to pay for commodities. Your job is to move your product or service from being a mere commodity into a transformational product.
  • Raising your price allows you to win over your competitors.
  • You have a choice. You can decide to sell to 70% of people who want to buy stuff for less than $100, and you can decide to sell to 27% of people who are willing to spend $500, or you can decide to sell to 3% of people who don’t care about pricing because they value their time over money.
  • You’ll keep on having price resistance if you always think about people who value money over time.
  • Create a killer offer and start selling that to people who are at the top of the pyramid going down, instead of starting from the bottom of the pyramid going up.
  • Your pricing model is just as important as any other aspect of your business.
  • Look at what your competitors are offering and deliver 10x more of what they are giving to their market.
  • Sales calls are just meant to collect money from people and nothing else. Instead of doing a sales call, do a customised strategy session instead with your customers for free. Let them know how you can truly help them in such a way that even if they don’t become your customer, they will leave feeling satisfied and recommend you to other people.
  • Go after 4% of your market that brings 96% of your revenue.
  • Start by getting really clear on the type of business you want to build. Once you know that, you can then identify who you want to serve. 
  • Look for a market that is affluent enough. Go to people who are small but big enough to pay and sustain your business. 
People will pay for transformation. If you believe that what you are selling is truly going to be useful and will provide results, people will pay for it. @IamJohnsonEmma on #InnovaBuzz podcast Click To Tweet
