how often do people put their prices up and the reasoning behind them ?
I try to go in high so then I don't really need to increase my prices every year like some do.
I took over from my old boss 4 years ago and the prices were pretty low. I've put them up gradually but I think they should be higher. I think at least 50p-£1 every year until it gets too silly. Is that asking for too much
Best bet is when you quote new work try to get what you want for the job. Also bring the others inline to your new pricing structure as soon as possible. Most ppl will understand the price increase as if you do a good job will be happy to pay more. Jobs that you don't like doing for whatever reason I would hit them with the new price straight away.
When they have been paying the same price for a fair while it's a bit nerving whacking the prices up and risk losing custom. I'm in Surrey area and most people round here are a little tight with their money, hence why they have money.
i usually jump a chunk of the round by a quid or 2 each spring.
I sneak em up....I have stopped putting the price on my cards anymore....if they ask how much time to go up...
some people put it up for me and some are as tight as a ducks rear end...
So when you all put the prices up do you do it verbally to the customers or via a letter, email, or text ?
