Only as long as it is a fad that works.

Do your numbers and look at your Competition.........Then decide if you in fact deserve a Raise because you offer better service/results IMO.

If you want to pass the savings onto your Clients, that is your call.

Look at the Value of your service.....Do you deserve a Raise???

A part of it here...

I agree with what some of the guys said earlier. Lowering prices is like the easy way out. It hurts the industry as a whole when everyone is under cutting each other. I know its best to be economical, however, never lower prices unless you have to.

I hardly look at my competitor's pricing when I bid on properties. It sounds crazy but I concentrate on what my goals are and what it really costs. One time when I was geeking out over a price qoute old successful landscaper gave me the advice " just charge what it costs."

If you lower your prices offer more and penetrate don't lower prices unless they seem like they will drop you for a cheaper contractor.

sorry to jump in so late but I couldn't help myself
