What % of estimates that you give do you actually get?

I think 20-39% is ideal and what I shoot for. If you gain more then that then you are probably not charging enough. It gets complicated when dealing with referrals etc. If you get 80% or more on cold calls then I would say you need to raise price ASAP.

I'm happy with 20-25% signed contracts, I'm not the cheapest and don't plan to be, so I only get the ones that are willing to pay for what they get.

80% or more and I always exceed my $/hr goals. Efficency is king!
