Discount Terms? Know the Differences
When it comes to Discount Terms you must always make it work to your advantage. One of my greatest pet peeves is people who waste my time. This is why I am not good at calling any type of customer service. Pushing buttons and a robot trying to guess what I’m calling for and asking me for information is an insult to me and a waste of my time when I need to talk to a live person.. unfortunately, there are would-be clients who will waste your time too. Here are a few tips to help them get lost quick.
1. CASH UP FRONT…
Make this clear to the client. Once they agree to it DO NOT WAIVER… no matter how bad you need the money. Make it clear to the client that nothing can be done until the money is received and that means NOTHING folks. For me and my business, I have to put together animated ads and it can take me anywhere from 1 to 2 hours to do these ads. If a client doesn’t come through I get pissed when I have done this much work. It’s better to not have done anything and get screwed then it is to do 75% of the job and get screwed.
