The Salary Negotiation Crash Course

MSN logo BBC News logo Business Insider logo Glassdoor logo Forbes logo

You have a job offer and they're waiting for your answer. You need to respond quickly. You know you'll be leaving money on the table if you don't negotiate your job offer, and that doesn't feel good.

The million-dollar question is: How do you negotiate your salary without losing the job offer or seeming greedy? Ashley did it, but first she had to avoid the most common salary negotiation mistake...

The most common salary negotiation mistake:
Not negotiating at all.

Ashley was interviewing for a new consulting opportunity at a software company. Her old company was going through a significant reorganization, and she was looking for a new opportunity in a more stable working environment. She was even willing to accept a lateral move in pay to get out of the old company and into a new one. She wasn't planning to negotiate if they made her an offer that matched her current salary.

We scheduled a time to talk and I asked her some questions:

  • "What is your market value?" Quite a bit higher than her current pay.
  • "How do you stack up against other consultants in your industry?" She was one of the most experienced consultants in the industry.
  • "How badly does this new company need your expertise?" They desperately needed her specific skillset and experience.

She was in a very strong negotiating position, but didn't even plan to negotiate if they could meet her current salary! With a little bit of coaching, she decided to negotiate rather than accepting a lateral move.

We began by focusing on how should could answer each interview question to position herself as the candidate for the job. That helped her get a stronger job offer with more room to negotiate.

Once she had a strong offer in hand, she used valuable tactics to negotiate from a position of strength, building on the momentum she built during her interviews.

The result? She made an additional $15,000 in base salary by negotiating her job offer.

This valuable method will earn you thousands of dollars

The best part? You can use the same method Ashley used over and over throughout your career when you change jobs and you can use it at your current job. It's easy and repeatable.

If you could negotiate a $5,000 increase, you would make $5,000 more that first year. And you would make $5,000 the next year, and the next year, and the next year. Over 20 years, that $5,000 salary increase would be worth more than $100,000. That’s a lot of money to leave on the table out of frustration or fear.

Oliver Nolte, Inside Sales Rep

I am so fired up! The Salary Negotiation Crash Course totally worked!

I work as an inside sales rep and I was offered $22/hour to move to a comparable job at a competitor. After asking for a couple of days to review and then using the Standard Counter Offer Email Template to counter with $27/hour, they came back with $24.50.

This represents $7,000 more annually than they were offering initially for a 50 hour week!

Big win, thank you, The Salary Negotiation Crash Course totally worked!

The Salary Negotiation Crash Course isn't for everyone...

Q: I've never negotiated before. Will this work for me?

A: You don't need to be an experienced negotiator to negotiate your salary. You'll have no trouble picking up the tactics I teach you to negotiate your salary.

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

A: 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.

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

A: If you're changing jobs soon, you can learn to negotiate your salary so you avoid common mistakes that could cost you thousands of dollars.

Remember that example above where you negotiated $5,000 more in base salary and that added up to more than $100,000 over the next 20 years of your career? If you wait just one year, then that same $5,000 is only worth $95,000 over the next 20 years. Wait two years and that same $5,000 increase is only worth $90,000 over the next 20 years. The sooner you start getting paid what you're worth, the more money you will make over the course of your career.

Q: How long does this take?

A: The salary negotiation video course takes about 50 minutes. If you watch the course and then use the other video supplements, worksheets, and email templates, you can be ready to negotiate your salary in less than 90 minutes.

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

A: Absolutely! You're protected by the Happy Customer Guarantee. If you're not happy with your purchase for any reason, just let me know and I'll refund your money.
