Learn to negotiate your salary now so you're ready when it's time to maximize your next job offer

I've negotiated hundreds of offers, and I'll show you how to negotiate yours in just a few hours

Show me how to negotiate my offer

What is a 16% improvement in your job offer worth to you?


You need to negotiate your job offer and you don't have much time to learn how.

Changing jobs is already stressful enough. The interview process is a slog that seems like it might never end: screening calls, technical interviews, loops, follow-ups, on-sites and it just seems to go on and on and on.

If you make every move exactly right, you could get to the ultimate prize: A lucrative job offer.

But it turns out that lucrative job offer is just the entrance to a hazy maze that you've encountered before. Once again, you find yourself staring into the Maze of Negotiation.

Last time you were here a few years ago, you were leveling up from L4 to L5, or you finally got an offer with the word "Senior" in the title. Maybe you just threw your hands up and got out of there as quickly as possible—why bother, right?—Or maybe you tried to navigate the Maze of Negotiation, fighting valiantly along the way, and just felt kind of outmaneuvered. You're not sure why, but things just didn't quite work out like you had hoped.

Here you are again, staring into the Maze of Negotiation, feeling that same queasy, uncertain feeling you felt last time.

What sort of Dragons might be lurking? Recruiters, finance people, hiring committees, and cranky managers, who all seem to be trying to slow you down or take you out.

And what about the dangers you can't see? The Trap Doors hiding under seemingly-innocuous questions like "So if you come work for us, what are your salary expectations?" or "Tell me about one time you worked on a project that failed." Or, worst of all, what if they pull the offer?

Or you could wade into the maze only to spend all your time running into dead ends.

What if they lowball me?

What if they say no?

It feels like you have to navigate this maze if you really want to get paid what you're worth, but it seems like everything is working against you don't know if you can do this again:

HOW DO I NAVIGATE THIS NEGOTIATION WITHOUT GETTING TOTALLY LOST OR—EVEN WORSE—TOTALLY BLOWING IT UP?!

I am absolutely blown away by Salary Negotiation Mastery! Not only did I find it incredibly valuable and useful, but I had the pleasure of seeing the results first hand. I was able to negotiate a $22,000 increase in total compensation - that's a $13,000 increase in base salary and a $9,000 sign-on bonus - from Amazon!

Josh, Salary Negotiation Mastery is truly a game changer and I am recommending it to all my software engineering and software development contacts!

You are only a few hours away from mastering this salary negotiation


Imagine you turn to the side and there you see a WIZARD who looks like he's been waiting for you, casually reading something on a beat-up SCROLL. You approach.

"Ah, I see you've made it through the Interview Slog and into the Maze of Negotiation! You look tired."

"I am really tired. That Interview Slog is no joke! I've been interviewing for three different jobs for the past few months, and I'm exhausted. I'm thrilled to have this offer and I feel like I should negotiate it, but now that I'm in the Maze of Negotiation, I don't think I have the energy to even try. I don't have any idea how to do this."

"Everyone who enters the Maze of Negotiation feels that way. Everyone! That's why I'm here."

The Wizard hands you the Scroll he was reading. It contains a very detailed map and says "Maze of Negotiation" at the top. It's worn and has obviously been used many times.

"Here, take this."

"I've helped hundreds of people just like you navigate the Maze of Negotiation. Every one of them has made it out, usually with a lot of treasure. Follow me and I'll show you the way."

I've never negotiated an extra dollar for myself in any job offer or raise, and I had tried a couple times before. The fact that Josh helped me get an additional $74,000 was amazing. It wasn't unexpected to get more money, but it was unexpected to get that much more money.

Here's the good news: People negotiate higher salaries all the time. Companies actually expect it. How do I know? Because I make a living helping people negotiate!

I am your Salary Negotiation Wizard. I'm here to help you navigate the Maze of Negotiation, just like I've helped hundreds of people in your exact situation. In the same way that you've been head-down learning how to be the best at your job, I've spent years becoming a Salary Negotiation expert, helping people earn millions more dollars.

Not only do I know how to navigate the Maze of Negotiation along with the Scroll. I wrote the Scroll, and it's called Salary Negotiation Mastery.

It's a detailed, step-by-step process to negotiate your job offer and maximize your compensation without endangering the offer.

In only a few hours, I'll show you exactly how to navigate the Maze of Negotiation you just entered. I'll show you exactly what to do and what to say from this moment until you emerge from the Maze of Negotiation with the absolute best possible version of your compensation package locked up.

I know you don't have much time. I want this to be a slam-dunk decision for you, so here's what you need to know about this offer:

  • The whole program takes only a few hours. You may have seen other programs where they try to cram as much stuff into one package as possible. They brag about how many hours of video, how many worksheets, and all that. This one is different: You're in a hurry, so there's no fluff. This program is exactly what you need to negotiate the best offer possible—no more and no less.
  • I've used this exactly methodology for the past several years to help more than 150 people negotiate millions of dollars more for themselves. This is literally all I do and I'm very good at it.
  • I guarantee Salary Negotiation Mastery will work for you. I'm so confident in this that I offer a simple guarantee: Try it, and if you don't at least make your money back just reach out and let me know and I'll happily refund our purchase. I call it the Happy Customer Guarantee and I stand by it.

So what would a 16% improvement in your job offer be worth to you? Thousands of dollars? Tens of thousands?

Don't start your new job, look back on your first day of work, and think, "I wonder if I could've negotiated more pay?" Get Salary Negotiation Mastery and be sure you get the best pay possible while you have the chance.

Josh helped me realize my worth in a way that I never thought possible. He helped me negotiate $600k in total compensation, which was beyond my wildest dreams and $20k more than Amazon offered for the position. The money will completely transform my financial security and ability to invest/retire.

You could be confidently negotiating your offer in a matter of hours


And just like you mastered your own skillset, you can master the art of confidently negotiating your salary so that no money is left on the table—in a matter of hours. (I promise the learning curve is significantly shorter.)

Okay, okay. I know what you're thinking.

"Josh, even if I could learn to confidently negotiate a higher salary, wouldn't this risk the company rescinding my offer completely?"

Not when you do it how I teach it.

Salary Negotiation Mastery will show you a proven approach that is both collaborative and aggressive, and specifically designed to work with your recruiter to get the best possible result, not against them!

How Salary Negotiation Mastery will get you the best possible compensation for your skills — so you can focus on the job instead of the money you missed out on making


The program is designed to meet you exactly where you’re at, which is one of three places.

  1. You have a job offer and you have a deadline to respond which is breathing down your neck. (No sweat. Inside the program, in a matter of minutes, I’ll show you exactly how to respond and open up negotiations.)
  2. You’ve already interviewed and don’t have an offer yet. (Cool. I’ll show you how to review salary expectations before negotiating so you hold the power right from the start.)
  3. You’re about to start the job search process (or plan to in the future) and want to make sure you set yourself up for interview success and the salary of your dreams. Smart cookie ;)

Depending on where you’re at, here’s what I’ll be guiding you through inside Salary Negotiation Mastery.

1. Ace your interviews


If you haven’t gone through your interview yet, in this module I’ll show you how to:

  • Shift the interviewers’ mindset from ‘what’s the smallest number…’ to ‘how much do we have to offer to get them’
  • Position yourself as the perfect candidate for the job without reciting your resume (they already have access to that!)
  • Immediately increase the perceived value of having you in the role — which primes you for a breezy negotiation

2. Know your numbers


Once you’ve nailed your interview, it’s essential you know 4 key numbers. I’ll show you how to:

  • Find your market value estimation so you’re starting from solid ground
  • Calculate the money you need to feel great about saying yes to the job, taking into account a dozen categories (it’s probably going to add up to more than you think, which is why this piece is so important)
  • Set your minimum acceptable salary, so you’re ready to negotiate specifically and effectively

3. Receive the offer


Nice one! You’ve got your offer. Now the fun really begins. In this module, I’ll show you how to:

  • Get plenty of time to consider the offer so you don’t feel under pressure to accept an offer that doesn’t reflect the value of your skills and that you could spend the next 4 years resenting
  • Analyze the offer in relation to your minimum acceptable salary, so you know which negotiation strategy to move forward with
  • Balance multiple offers, if you have them (this is a delicate process and I’ll show you exactly how to manage and leverage them in an ethical way where you get the outcome you truly want)

4. Build your counter


Now you’ve got time to develop a case before you respond and I’ll show you how to:

  • Decide exactly what to counter on and what to avoid bringing into the negotiation at the start (this is where many people go wrong when doing it on their own)
  • Determine how “aggressive” you want to be in response (there are a number of things to consider here and varying levels of “aggression”) and what that means for your negotiation strategy
  • Build your case in a way that highlights your specific value and goes far beyond just asking for a bit more money

5. Negotiate like a pro


You’ve now got everything ready to start active negotiation and confidently handle it like a pro. In this module, I’ll show you how to:

  • Manage any nerves you feel about communicating with your future employer or losing the offer (this is not going to happen when you follow my methodology)
  • Write your counter email so it WOWS the recruiter and sets a positive and collaborative tone for the whole negotiation
  • Exactly what to do when you get a response to your counter — we cover all the options here so you can evaluate and move forward with complete confidence (I even give you a foolproof script you can use if they request a phone call)
  • Create your final ask from a place of strength

6. Make your decision


It’s decision time. Once the negotiation is complete, I’ll show you how to:

  • Make the best decision for you, based on all the work you’ve done so far
  • Say yes to the offer and what logistical information you’ll want to clarify when doing so
  • Say no to the offer respectfully and assess where you go next

This is a thorough, no-fluff, results-focused program that gives you everything you need to conduct a masterful negotiation that gets you the best compensation package available — even if you’ve never negotiated in your life before.

What's it like?


Here is a sample lesson from Salary Negotiation Mastery so you can see what it's like. This lesson is quick overview of the course itself, including our goals and how we'll achieve them.

Welcome to Salary Negotiation Mastery!


A preview of the first lesson in the program

Happy Customer Guarantee

I’m so confident this will work for you that if you use it and don’t at least make your investment back, just let me know and I'll happily refund your purchase.

That’s it—there’s no fine print. I know how valuable Salary Negotiation Mastery is and I know you’ll find it valuable.

I’m very nervous about negotiating. I felt that working with a professional would help take some of the pressure off.

Working with Josh made the whole process a lot less stressful. He was very responsive and I think I got a substantially better offer than I could have on my own. I went from a vague offer of ~$200k first year total compensation to $258k. At a rough guess, I think I could have gotten to ~$220k on my own? So that’s a big win and a good cost/benefit. I also learned more about the process for next time.

What kind of return on investment can you expect?


That really depends on your job role and original offer. Based on my detailed records and data of the results my clients have gotten (what can I say, I’m meticulous), here’s an idea of the higher salary you could negotiate simply by following my proven methodology.

Original offer$100k$175k$250k
Realistic negotiated offer$115k$200k$290k

If your offer is $60k or higher and you follow the steps inside Salary Negotiation Mastery, I can guarantee that you’ll break even on your investment at an absolute minimum. If for some reason you don’t, I’ll refund you the full cost of the program.

If your offer is $250k or higher, you can absolutely benefit from this program. However, due to the intricacies that may be included in a package of that size, you may prefer to work with me privately to coach you through the negotiation process.

My past negotiations have honestly been terrible where I never felt like I had the upper hand. Josh's coaching gave me confidence in the negotiation process. Because I knew Josh had gone through this before, I knew I wasn't asking anything too crazy / offensive of Apple. We ended up negotiating $35,000 more in base salary, $300,000 more total equity (vesting over four years), and $25,000 more sign on bonus.

If you’ve read this far and you’re thinking…


Can I talk with Josh about my specific situation?

Absolutely! Salary Negotiation Mastery includes a 30-minute phone call with me so we can talk through your specific situation and make sure you get the absolute most out of the program.

I’d really like to negotiate my salary using Josh’s methods but I don’t think I have time as the company is already expecting a response from me

I’ve got you covered. As soon as you purchase the program, you’ll have access to an email template which you can use to email your future employer and request time to respond. You’re not going to run out of time. They want you to join their team and they will wait!

The program materials are concise and streamlined to allow you to work through them in a time-efficient way, so you’ll be able to negotiate your salary within a matter of hours if you choose to.

I’ve already communicated my salary expectations, am I screwed?

No. I’ll show you exactly how to handle the negotiation even though you’ve already communicated your expectations. It’s worth noting though, if you haven’t communicated salary expectations yet, don’t! I’ll show you exactly what to do instead inside the program.

Will this work for my specific job or industry?

Yes! There are only a few industries where you might struggle to negotiate: Academia, government, and teaching. If you're in an industry other than those, Salary Negotiation Mastery will work for you! Try it and I'll refund your purchase if you don't at least make your money back.

Do I have to be aggressive when negotiating? I’m not sure how I feel about that…

I get it. You’re great at your job and proud of your work but you want to take a tactful approach when negotiating. You’re like 99% of my clients! This is why I teach you how to negotiate in a way that’s both aggressive and collaborative rather than confrontational and abrasive. I believe this is a big part of the reason why those who work with me get such phenomenal results.

Hmm, I reckon I could negotiate this on my own

Go for it (no really)! We all have to start somewhere, and that’s exactly how I learned a lot of what I now teach. Bear in mind that you won’t get access to my proven methodology that’s helped thousands of other people negotiate their salary with phenomenal results, the tried-and-tested email swipe templates, or the inside secrets I’ve gathered over my seven years of being a salary negotiation expert. (For example, if your plan is to go back and ask for what you want, you’re setting yourself up to get the opposite.)

I’ve never negotiated before, is this really going to work for me?

100%. You don’t need to have any experience at negotiating for this to work. When you use my salary negotiation method, scripts, and tactics, you’re going to get yourself a higher salary.

Can I negotiate my salary if this is my first job?

The main reason to negotiate is that there might be room to negotiate. Whether you’re a recent college grad looking for your first full-time job, or an experienced executive looking to level up, you'll only know if there's room to negotiate by trying it.

What if I'm not negotiating my salary right now?

If you're planning to change jobs in the next three to six months, this is the perfect time to get started with Salary Negotiation Mastery. The program starts with how to ace your interviews, and moves right into negotiation strategy, so you'll be totally prepared as soon as you start pursuing new opportunities.

Can I get my money back if I'm not happy?

If you use Salary Negotiation Mastery and don't at least make your money back, just let me know and I'll happily refund your purchase.

It's about time I introduced myself properly


I’m Josh Doody, the world’s best salary negotiation expert

As a humble guy, it’s hard to say I’m the “world’s best” but the results and reputation I’ve built in this niche make it hard to argue with! In the 7+ years I’ve been a professional salary negotiation coach, I’ve:

  • Personally helped 150+ one-on-one clients negotiate >$7.3million more income in just the first year after working with me and >$12million in the four years after
  • Coached people just like you to improve their job offers by an average of $47,273
  • Helped my clients maximize their compensation packages through the art of salary negotiation (an art you can master yourself in a matter of hours with this program)
  • Guided over 1,000 people through my tried-and-tested Fearless Salary Negotiation methodology (yep, that’s the one I’m going to walk you through step-by-step)
  • Been involved in negotiations with companies including Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Github, Tesla, @WalmartLabs, Zillow, Fastly, Bloomberg, Red Hat, Verizon, IBM, Microsoft, Twitter, Opendoor, and other companies you've heard of
  • Done all of this entirely behind the scenes, so every result my clients and customers have achieved is through their own direct communication with recruiters

You might be wondering how I got into this, considering nobody else on the planet seems to be doing it (and certainly not in the way I teach it).

The short answer is: I started my career as an engineer and worked as a consultant for a software company that helped organizations manage their compensation plans, so I got a front row seat to exactly how they paid people and apportioned budget.

Plus, I was a hiring manager and helped build a team of 25 people, which included negotiating salaries on the company side.

I didn't negotiate my salary at the start of my career, but soon realized I'd left a ton of money on the table along the way. Once I started negotiating, I doubled my salary in three years.

Take it from me, the sooner you start, the better.

My skillstack is unique and valuable. That's why I created Salary Negotiation Mastery: so you can get access to all of the skills I've mastered and use them yourself to get paid exactly what you deserve in the smoothest, fastest, most collaborative way possible.

This program won't just teach you how to negotiate more compensation. It'll teach you how to negotiate the maximum compensation.

Happy Customer Guarantee

I’m so confident this will work for you that if you use it and don’t at least make your investment back, just let me know and I'll happily refund your purchase.

That’s it—there’s no fine print. I know how valuable Salary Negotiation Mastery is and I know you’ll find it valuable.

This could be the best investment you ever make — and you can use your new negotiation skills for every future job offer, making the lifetime ROI unbelievable


Your best opportunity to negotiate a higher salary is before you start a new role. While it is possible to negotiate once you're in the job, it's all too easy to get stuck in a company's regular "merit increase" cycle which can ultimately leave you frustrated, short on compensation, and wishing you'd negotiated better when you had the chance.

My goal with Salary Negotiation Mastery isn't just to show you exactly how to get a higher salary, it's to make sure that when you go home after your first day at your new job and when your head hits the pillow at night, you know deep in your bones that you're making as much money as you possibly can, and you never have to wonder if you should have asked for more.

Instead, you can focus on enjoying your work, excelling at it, moving up in your career, and putting that extra salary to good use!

The downpayment on the house you've been side-eyeing for months.

The luxurious family vacation you've never quite been able to afford.

The lifestyle conveniences that give you your precious time back.

It could all be available to you on the other side of one negotiation.

With Josh’s help, I negotiated increased offers from Facebook, Amazon and GitHub. GitHub was the lowest offer, but they came up quite a lot with a $25k signing bonus, a $15k increase in salary, and a $32k annual increase in equity. The offers got close enough to each other that I could decide based on other more intangible factors and choose the opportunity that was the most compelling for me personally.

The outcome was fantastic! I felt Josh had my best interest in mind throughout the entire process, and he got me almost back to the initial counter. I had no idea we could get the bump that we did. I negotiated $14k more in base salary, $32k in year 1 bonus, $50k in year 2 bonus, and 500 more RSUs.

I was afraid they wouldn’t offer me enough to accept the offer, but they improved my base salary by $10k and added a $5k signing bonus! That’s good enough for me!

I'm a bit shocked! Salary Negotiation Mastery opened my eyes and gave me quite the confidence to negotiate!

Thank you!
