    Hi
    do you guys also have this mindset? When you give a client a price quote and they end up converting, you go "dammit i should have charged more"
    when they end up not converting: "my quote was too high. i should have charged less."

    is this a good mindset to have? or it is counterproductive?

    Good to have the mindset. It gives you experience! Over the time, you know how much you should charge depending on the clients, their needs, the place where they come from, adding to the price knowing they would ask a lot of things later, and the things that you're actually giving them. You can add some extra features to compensate anything that would eat your conscience later. :)

    Or you can have a fixed price for your services category-wise irrespective of the clients' pocket-depths.

    You may add discounts, freebies, etc if you feel that any particular client should have them.

    Everytime. If they sign I always say damn maybe it was low. Or if I don't get it then I'm always like jeez was it really too high?? It's a vicious cycle I tell ya. :)
