Here's a perfect example of how completely out of touch you are with respect to contacts and charging protocols. You constantly send out reminders "follow up on your bids, it'll bring more business" So I follow up with a young man who is getting married, he out of courtesy responds to my follow up. He says , "he has no questions but will contact me in the future if they do. Thanks for your quick response." Just good old courtesy and you charge me $45 because that's a contact. You charged me $45 because some woman requested me by name, when I responded to her request, nothing but I still get charged $45, how is that even ethical? certainly not a good reflection on my "business partner"

First of all, it seems rather arbitrary when you decide a contact is a chargeable contact. There are so many different ways an excahnge can proceed. In the recent past I have been charged, when a customer said thanks for giving me the info, we're still trying to pick a date, we'll get back to you. $50.00 cha ching! I feel like there needs to be a better way to evaluate a contact if it is a true lead. As far as pricing, again you seem to be arbitrary about what you charge for a contact. If there is a formula that should be made known. It is impossible to budget with the program you are inflicting on us. At least when I paid to bid on a job I knew what i was spending, now its just a crap shoot.
