How to ask your boss for more money [Video]

If you want a raise, you're going to have to ask for it, and that's often the hardest part.

To increase your wage, you have to make a compelling case about why you deserve it. You can do this in three steps.

First, gather your evidence. This should include positive reviews from clients, goals you've hit during past projects and references from coworkers.

Next, give that evidence context. Research what other professionals in your position make in the industry to make comparisons. Refer to the job description for new hires. Have you taken on more responsibilities? If so, you should be compensated for it.

Finally, practice often. Go through your case with a friend or by yourself. Your raise depends on making a great pitch.
