I'm going in full time this year-quitting my regular job after months of soul searching. I have my letters stamped, sealed, and ready to mail mentioning price increases. Some of my long standing customers whom I haven't raised the price on some for 5 or 6 yrs I'm not concerned about the price increase. My customers who I just picked up last year I'm worried about. After reading the post about guys getting dropped for .50-.75 increase I'm considering opening the envelopes and reducing the increase if increasing at all. Example of increase: $25 up to $27 and $35 up to $38. I cannot afford to lose anyone at this point. I mentioned in my letter the primary reason for increase was prediction of high gas prices this summer. Should I play it safe and redo my letters or stick to my guns? Any feedback from you guys who have been through this is greatly appreciated as this is my first price increase! THANKS!
