How to prepare & ask for a raise:

#1 Be realistic: Understand the market in which you work and what you are worth -- rough idea -- ask around since wages vary by cities.

#2 Know your company's policy: some companies only provide raise once a year.

#3 Understand the state of your company: can it support a raise?

#4 Schedule time for the discussion: this should not be a drive-by ask.

#5 Justify your request: Build your business case to justify your ask (ways you've helped the company earn or save money- concrete dollar amounts).

#6 Present yourself well. You are selling yourself, present yourself in a professional manner for the ask.

#7 Avoid ultimatums and keep to the facts: Minimize your emotions, stick to the fact based on results.

#8 Ask and wait: Like any good salesperson, silence can be your best friend. After asking an important question, be silent.

#9 Build a plan: regardless of the response, work to understand the next steps and build a plan to get from where you are to where you want to go. - Yes: Understand when and how you will receive the raise. - No: Why not and what do you need to do to position yourself for a raise. Follow-up.

#10 Thank You: Thank your boss for their time and follow-up with a written thank you.
