From Chatterton wedding photographer Basingstoke Hants just a thought!
Quality is priority:
I came across this really relevant quote by John Ruskin from the 19th century.
I couldn't put it better myself but I felt it was really relevant in the business I am running and that quality really does list above what you pay.
Have a little read see what you think this may not be relevant to certain clients but the discerning clients the idea to seems to have this philosophy in what they look for.
“It is unwise to pay too much, but it is unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money and that is all, but when you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing that you’ve bought isn’t capable of doing the thing it was bought to do.
The common law of business prohibits you from paying a little and receiving a lot – it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder it would be as well to add something for the risk you run, and if you can do that you can afford to buy something better”.
“There is hardly anything in the world today that some man cannot make just a little worse and sell just a little cheaper, and the people who buy on price alone are this man’s lawful prey”.
John Ruskin, 1819 – 1900
