Probably like many of you guys, I'm going to raise my prices in the New Year. I wondered about putting a Notice up in a Very Prominent Place (ie on my windowsill and maybe a large poster on the side of my nail trolley), so people will hopefully see it and maybe we can talk about it naturally rather than me just announcing "hey this is gonna cost you more!" Any ideas on how to word the notice professionally yet nicely? And if I put the notice up at the beginning of January, giving notice of price increases at the end of the month, is that sufficient time for all to become aware do you think? Another point, at hairdressing salons I've been to, nobody has ever mentioned a price increase, they just do a notice. Should I make a point of bringing it to everyone's attention even if they don't seem to see it? All tips greatly appreciated. I HATE doing this. I know it's my problem but I still hate it. It seems even worse because a basic rebalance is £20 so it means people are going to have to fish round for odd coins now instead of a simple note. I have held my prices for a couple of years (no, actually, the French rebalance has actually increased in price because I realised its value and the time taken was not recognised in the price charged). Who else is putting prices up?
