I just let every band that recorded know that the current rates were always subject to change and would likely go up and nobody ever had a problem with it.
Dude, preceived value is just that - preceived value. If you're charging 250 per song you need to find another business or call it a hobby. End of story. You can't afford these kinds of toys charging $250 per song. Sorry to be so harsh, but that's reality. If your trash guy is making 3X's as much as you are, you can't really call it a business.
