A customer with an innovative business called me one day and asked the complying with question. It’s an inquiry I get asked frequently, so instead of write a whole short article, I chose simply to tell you exactly what I informed her.
” I never recognize what to state when a possible client phone calls and also asks ‘Just how much do you bill? What are your fees?’
I don’t want to shoot myself in the foot by pricing quote something too low, but likewise don’t want the caller to listen to a number that they believe is expensive as well as hang up.
What do I state to them so I do not put them off, yet likewise don’t immediately take myself out of the going to obtain their company?”
