A funny thing I've learned is serious business questions don't always require serious business replies. People call me on the phone all the time and the question of our rates often comes up. My answer: "as much as possible." Most people will laugh, the conversation gets less serious and we start building a relationship instead of getting judged by their list of questions.

Ultimately you should give the serious answer afterwards, but now the rate is a relief because their expectations were humorously set very high!
