How long do you hold out?

    I think we all get commercial feet draggers. How long do you hold a spot for them before you fill another client. Calls have been coming in but would you fill a spot that has traditionally been a good payer with an unknown? Calls have been made and pressure has been applied, but as always the call will come in the day it starts sticking.

    Only you can decide how long, but at some point you have to fill your schedule.

    One last call/letter saying we are going to fill your time slot in X time if you don't sign. Then move on.

    My estimates are noted with " must call to confirm before 11/15/09 for prices listed below .
    Most try to play dumb and call WHEN it snows after they have tried to use my estimate as a coupon . Which , Im sure sometimes works . But , prices are subject to change without notice ...when it snows without a signed contract .

    business Is business :laughing:
