The 5-Step Script to Ask for a Raise

Wouldn’t it be great if there were just a script for asking for a raise?
Oh yeah, we made one. It’s called the GIMME (cute, right?), and it will help you prep your ask in advance of that big meeting with your boss. The GIMME is a 5-step process that covers everything from how you open the conversation to how you end it in style. It looks something like this:
  • G: Give Background Info
  • I: Introduce Why You’re Awesome
  • M: Make Your (Researched-Based) Case
  • M: Make the Ask
  • E: End with a Bang
By hitting each step as you talk, you’ll make a clear case for why you deserve more money, and you’ll provide your boss with a clear idea of what value you bring to the team. It’s a perfect sell—one that’s a win-win for both of you.

We’ve outlined the whole thing in a free downloadable script complete with examples. Snag a copy of our GIMME script by entering your email address below—we’ll send it straight to your inbox.
