Due to global circumstances causing high inflation and a lower Canadian dollar (CAD), my business operating costs have increased significantly. This unfortunately means I must increase my service pricing where needed, while still keeping as it as low as possible where I can. In fact I have reduced some of the add-on pricing where feasible, and am offering a 5% discount to all of my current clients for the upcoming 2023 calendar year on annual service packages.
The last round of price increases was over 2 years ago in October 2020, so I was thankfully able to offer as much value for the price-point as I could despite the various changes in the world today leading to higher prices. At this time though with inflation so high, I cannot financially continue to offer my high-value professional services at the same 2020 prices. It’s time for a renewed and forward-looking pricing table for my services for 2023 and beyond.
Here are the highlights of price increases & decreases:
- Web Hosting package has increased from $26/month to $30/month.
- Email-only Hosting package has increased from $8/month to $10/month.
- Add-on pricing has decreased, with an add-on for extra domains as an example where it decreased from $30/year to $25/year.
The simplest way to explain is it that my own business operating costs have increased, therefore to maintain an effective profit margin to continue to operate sustainably into the future I must increase the costs to my clients as well. I have absorbed as much as I could, opting to increase minimally rather than drastically, however I could not absorb it all completely. Outside factors include inflation, a lower Canadian dollar (CAD) exchange rate (some of my expenses are billed in USD), and general price increases from my platform service providers. This all amounts to a higher than usual increase in prices.
If you have any concerns or questions on this price change, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your continued business and I will always remain competitively priced with high-value service offerings to my clients.
