I would say it's a real quick to go out of business. That's not very professional or profitable.:hammerhead:

No!!!!! You will have the reputation as the cheap guy and everyone will want everything done for next to nothing and if you try to raise the price they will complain and drop you for the next cheaper guy....

bohiaa, I actually tried this years ago against all of the negative responses I got in here. Well all I can tell you is THEY WERE RIGHT! It scared away customer's I think,lol. I have learned throughout the years its not just the service you are selling, its you, your company etc. So my advise, bid it to get it but without the "beat any price" thing. Plus a lot of companies and customers dont want to be bothered calling you back asking you to go over the bid again so you can try to beat the price.
