  • The Benefits of Warning Your Clients About Price Increases
    The Benefits of Warning Your Clients About Price Increases

    It’s that time of year again; reviewing contracts and sweating over the fact of having to notify clients about pricing changes. Why do we get so concerned? Other industries have no issues with raising prices — think of the increases we have come to know on a yearly basis including electric, cable, water, and property taxes to name just a few. However, our increases usually come with improvement of our services yet we still worry about customer’s reactions. Luckily, I have some good news: It’s time to stop worrying because there are more benefits than downsides of warning our clients about price increases.
