Price Vs. Volume

Where do you fall in between the two general ideas, the first being lower pricing with higher volume. The second being higher pricing with less volume.

For me it's about profit. I'd rather have 20 weekly accounts than 50 biweekly. If you get what I saying

Price. If I can make $500 a day doing 10 lawns at 50 a pop, I wouldn't want to do 15 to make the same money and most likely have to rush throughout the day to get em done. When you are starting out, take anything you can get. But once you have reached your max, and your still getting calls for estimates and such, you can start the cherry picking process... But that takes years

More toward higher price and low volume, focusing on customers that are looking for quality and dependability rather than low pricing.

Volume usually is associated with being cheap. I prefer expensive meaning profit.

Well you don't necessarily have to sacrifice quality if your gearing for volume

I'm assuming he meant lower overall rates.

Why do u have to pick? Don't be the low ballerina, keep filtering out cheap paying customers. And also invest in advertising, message me and I can tell u how we did it.
