ANother thing is that everyone has talked about how to approach a restuarent and how to approach a table, but no one has talked about how much to charge? My friend who worked at carrows charge $25 dollars an hour? does that seem reasonable or is it too much or too little?
My opinion is that the guy charging $25 per hour is undercutting the market. Although, charging too much could mean a short stay at that particular restaurant.
I know plenty of people who work for 2 hours and get $100 plus a meal. One guy sells the 2 hours and then says you can have a 3rd hour for only $35 more. The reasoning is that he can hand out more business cards for prospecting but at least that is still $45 per hour.(if you prefer an hourly rate) $50 per hour if they only take the 2 hours.
Bottom line, charge too much and you will not last at one place very long. Charge too little and you are digging into the pocket of others. www.JeffEzellMagic.com
