easily forget if you lower your prices, but they sure as hell
remember if you raise them.
Interesting approach about the Spellstone rates. I tend to go in the
reverse. W/ the Spellstone book and CCJ's NA design book I tell
people that I'll give them a deal because I haven't had a chance to
do many of the designs in them.
Just thought I'd share
: When you work a regular job, after a year or so, you get a raise
: because you are better at your job with more practice and people
: to keep you there.
: When you're doing henna, you will naturally get better and faster
: what you do frequently. If last year you charged $10 for a design
: that was moderately challenging and took ten minutes, then this
: it's easy and takes you only 6 minutes, then you're only giving
: yourself the raise you deserve. I charge more for complex
: designs than complex traditionals because I don't quite have the
: rhythm of Spellstone yet and so they take me longer, yet they're my
: most popular book this year. People don't think about how long a
: design takes, just how good it looks, and so should you.
