Sales: Don’t Devalue Yourself, Charge for Designs and Bids

April 2, 2015

Many remodelers will include the time and energy they use for designing a project as part of their marketing efforts. Reality is, designing is a whole other job altogether.

“We devalue ourselves by doing this,” argues one contractor on a forum in Wood Web. “I will not devalue my design skills, and knowledge by providing design services for free. It has taken many years of experience to learn how to properly design, and spec cabinetry, and custom woodwork,” the forum member adds.
