Anyone raising fees due to high gas prices…In one month I raised them $25, and thinking of another $10. Of the clients that called, no one has really complained about the price.


Due to my range~180miles and 18 Counties, I had to.

The ability to raise prices is always a good thing icon_biggrin.gif but not necessarily because of gas prices. Would that mean you’ll lower them again when gas prices drop back down a bit?


If the market will bear it, pick 'em up and leave 'em

I raised prices on my Job Progress payments for higher gas prices, since they were low in the first place, and they didn't mind as long as I had a valid reason.

Last year I raised my fees to celebrate National Secretary’s Day; Labor Day; my Birthday; and for watching an old rerun of Pam Anderson running up the beach on Baywatch.


Almost any excuse is good for me.

is an integral part of the American marketing process, that American psyche, so don’t confuse people by using that bad, bad ending zero.


For example, categories like this:

500 - 999 SF
1000 - 1499 SF
1500 - 1599 SF

are much better than categories like this:

501 - 1,000 SF
1,001 - 1,500 SF
1,501 - 2,000 SF
