Raise Your Prices With Demand

Last week my team picked a question about services.. Should you add them? 

To me barbering is how I express my artistic side. I love the craft. But, I don't love to perform facial services. So black mask's, scrubs, etc would never be added to my list. 

But should you add them? 


My Advice: Do Not Add Extra Services To Justify  Raising Your Prices! You raise your prices when the demand for you is too high to supply.  

Charge for the time it takes you to give them that million dollar feeling. 
 
You're raising your prices because you have too many customers for you to cut (supply).

Now you get to really choose your customer. The one that pays your price and values your time. 

In order to be able to do this you have to be highly skilled. Not average.. but highly skilled! 

The point is to be in high demand for the quality of your cuts. Make sure you're compensated for that properly first. Then if the extra service calls you; add the service. 

Also check out the blog 'What is Supply & Demand' &  I'll tell you the fundamentals of supply and demand.

    I like this a lot. I hate trying to figure or raising prices because half the time I don’t think I’m worth being competitive, but I do have the skill, demand and clientele. So thank you for this


  • Rob your favorite barber

    I like the way you educate / giving up some game bro. If barbers would put away the ego they have and listen we would see alot of great cuts on peoples heads. Keep giving up game bro and keep up the good work.
