Lash Biz Advice: When is the right time to raise your prices?
Updated: Sep 17, 2019
How do you know when it is the right time to raise your prices? Here are some indicators it is time:
You have more clients than you are able to service.
The demand in your geographical area is greater than the supply available.
Your prices are below the midpoint your geographical area.
Now that you have determined that it is time to raise your prices, how do you go about doing that?
Step 1: Determine the amount you want to raise your prices based upon the market in which you reside.
Step 2: Determine to whom these increased prices will apply and when. Will you only apply the increase for new clients? Apply to all clients?
Step 3: Create a communication plan. How will you communicate the change? How much notification will you be giving? See suggested template below.
Step 4: Be prepared for some push-back and even the loss of a few clients. That is okay and normal.
It is recommended to make these changes at the beginning of a year as it seems to sit better with clients when associated with a fresh, new year.
