I figured out the cheap customer code

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
I think I've figured it out. Every time a potential costomer says the word "Simple" in the email describing what they're looking for, we're supposed to take $25 off of the price! If they say "very simple" that's another $50 off. Thnak God I figured it out, I've been charging these people the regular prices all this time! icon_lol.gif

LOL! So if they say "simple", 4 times during the conversation - do they get a $100 discount?

Just kidding.

Simple automatically adds a dollar to the per serving price, in my experience! icon_biggrin.gif Muggles...

No, you're right! I mean, if they say it that many times it will DEFINITELY be something that you don't need to charge them so much for, right? icon_biggrin.gif

Oh man totally! haha.

And if they say "We won't be having many guests, only about 8" that means we are supposed to shrink a $2000 cake down to where we only charge about $50.

Simple + not many guests + budget = FREE

I have a "simple neighbor"... we have a high end bakery that opened about a year ago. She decided to stop in and buy a birthday cake just to "check 'em out". She told the owner she wanted a "simple" birthday cake; (you're gonna love this) Without missing a beat, the owner said, Publix is across the street, they do "simple", my cakes start at $250". Completely dismissed her!!!!! I have been laughing every since then 'cause I know my neighbor wants everything for nothing.

"Just something simple. No decoration at all. Just really smooth."

My response, "You've just described absolutely THE most difficult cake to make." That's NOT simple. That's very advanced."

I would tell brides, "You're not allowed to use the word 'simple' when describing a cake because you are not really aware of what 'simple' is."

When they describe, "Something simple .... no borders or anything." then I'd reply "Oh .... so you want me to work HARDER on this cake!" Then I'd have fun being amused at their confused look on their face.

what if they start the message with...

"I'm looking for a cake, but I just bought a house"

I almost feel like I should give her the cake for free and throw in a donation! icon_lol.gif
Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.
