TOPIC: BAD BUSINESS

IT HAS COME TO MY ATTENTION THAT THERE ARE ALLOT OF GREAT TALENTED PEOPLE OUT HERE TRYING TO DO WHAT THEY LOVE TO DO. HERE IS WHAT I'M GETTING AT.

I SEE MANY PEOPLE ON THIS BOARD POSTING MESSAGES THAT THEY ARE PROVIDING A 3D SERVICE OR THEY ARE LOOKING FOR WORK.

WHAT I HAVE ENCOUNTERED AND I KNOW MANY OF YOU HAVE BEEN THOUGHT THIS BEFORE.

EXAMPLE: YOU [THE PERSON OR COMPANY PROVIDING THE SERVICE] ARE APPROACHED BY A PROSPECTIVE COMPANY OR PERSON SEEKING YOUR SERVICES OR LOOKING FOR WORK IS PLAYING THE E-MAIL CHASE GAME. YOU MAKE UP AN ONLINE ESTIMATE WHICH IS BASED ON NOT ENOUGH INFORMATION AND YOU SEND IT OFF ONLY TO GET BLOWN OFF. GET MY POINT!!!! I HAVE LEARNED MY LESSON SOMETIME AGO ABOUT THIS SITUATION AND ACTUALLY IF I RAN INTO THE PERSON THAT BLEW ME OFF LIKE THAT I WOULD FIST ASK THEM ONE QUESTION. "WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM" TO ME THAT IS BAD BUSINESS AND IF ANYONE IS SERIOUS ABOUT USING YOUR SERVICES, WANTING TO HIRE YOU OR THE OTHER WAY AROUND THEY WOULD CONTACT YOU PERSONALLY BY PHONE. 9 OUT OF 10 TIMES THIS IS THE JUST THE WAY IT IS.

WITH E-MAIL AND THE INTERNET TODAY IT IS A GREAT WAY TO COMMUNICATE [WHICH I MYSELF LIKE TO DISCUSS MY 2 CENTS AROUND THE WORLD] BUT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COIN PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE AND THEY SHOULD BE TREATED [IN BUSINESS] WITH A PROFESSIONAL MATTER AND NOT BLOWN OFF LIKE THEY DON’T EXIST.

POINT BEING, IF SOMEONE IS WILLING TO BEND OVER BACKWARD AND SUPPLY A SERVICE AND THE POTENTIAL CLIENT DOES NOT NEED YOU SERVICES FOR WHATEVER REASON AT LEAST RESPOND BACK WITH AN E-MAIL AND SAY "THANK YOU FOR YOU TIME IN HELPING ME, BUT WE HAVE FOUND SOMEONE ELSE TO DO THE PROJECT" THIS WAY [YOU PEOPLE KNOW WHO YOU ARE] YOU ARE NOT WASTING ANYONE’S TIME.

THIS MAKES FOR BAD BUSINESS

I SPEAK FOR ALL OF US IN THE 3D DESIGN VISUALIZATION COMMUNITY GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL.
