I think my competitors are going elsewhere because the cost is lower. Should I reduce my costs?
5 seconds of thought would tell you you should have friends contact your competitors and SEE WHAT THEY CHARGE. It may not be just price. Service? Turnaround time? Quality of work?

Think about the dollar store. How much do you trust using their soap? I'd say not nearly as much as some over priced brand's soap. Think about a yard sale. Do you do alot of shopping there? Odds are you mingle, buy some things, but leave the buying of good stuff to a 'real' store. Yes, call your competitors. It only takes a minute.

Find out what your competitors are charging, how fast they are, and if they offer any bonuses. Then counter with improving your turn around time, and adding a perk or two. Offer a sale on your items to bring back the customers, once they see your new additions and quicker services you should start to see some improvement. Also, make sure you're super friendly. Sometimes the thing that steals away customers is that your competitor is just friendly, and therefore, more of a pleasure to work with.
