The way I look at it, there is only so much business to go around and you need to fight for your share. But where to draw the line. thanks for reading.
I hear what you're saying....however, you ever heard the term "Nice guys finish last?" Business is business, and if you want to make more money then getting somebody to switch is the other guys problem. If the other guy is doing so good then the customer can always say no, even if you are less expensive.
