I increased my prices and made a presentable, professional looking website, have business cards, and made a price sheet. I have been doing cookie bouquets and was quite busy around Easter, so all in all I have done well with business even after changing my prices.
So every few days or so I will get an inquiry about my cookies going on and on about how beautiful they are and how so-and-so said they were so good etc. and would you please let me know the info for getting X amount of cookies for such-and-such event. So I email them the info (don't have my prices listed on my website--working out the kinks of getting time in a commercial kitchen here in Texas) and then I hear the crickets start to chirp. No reply. No, that's okay, but thank you for your time. Nothing. Ugh, why do I feel so bad when this happens?
Part of me wants to contact them again and offer a lower price, but I never do it because I don't want to be bitter about working hard for crumbs. I have a full time job and 3 kiddos, so when I make the cookies it is during what would be my leisure/unwinding time after they go to bed or before they wake up.
Anybody else have this problem?
