so a possible client reaches out, you respond and they don't respond, not in 48 hours, not at, maybe to no one, they read it, but never responded. does anyone else feel like this falls under the policy for refunds? if a client reaches out, I have a great rating for any client, in fact most clients become repeat clients. But those that are not only "shopping around" but also not responding after requesting availabilty, that should be refunded...NO?

does it pay to respond to clients who wish to pay a small amount for a large service? i've found that sometimes once a menu is sent to client they will often go above their stated budget, but this far and few... i think there are services that shouldn't even offer $15 and under...who is going to spend their time creating a menu, ordering, preparing then serving or dropping off for less than $45? is your time worth that little? The global pricing points for the services causes abuse. I can think of little or no service worth $15/hr. or /person. Trying to bring everyone in, the idea of price competition brings us all down. let's be honest about what our services cost, out cost of labor/cost of goods/cost of travel/cost of time...planning, organizing, scheduling...i plan to pass the cost of my contacts onto the client, they are paying for our service so they should reimburse us for our fees. add a service fee, increase your cost, don't accept clients unwilling to pay the worth of your service and your time (total time spent getting the client). we can effect change.
