Sending out 2013 renewals
I am working up my 2013 app renewals as I speak. How many of you guys are doing the same? How are you handling price increases? For gas/fert etc?
I have increased the price on about 1/3 of my customers, those who's price was perhaps a bit low to start with, or have fallen behind the costs of doing business. 10% increase is about average. The new customers I got in 2012 will generally not see an increase until at least a year from now. Otherwise I feel I would risk losing them.
