I am interested in branding my business and driving up sales daily… I need 5+ sales a day with an average profit of $30 to survive out there…
what can you offer me?
To which I reply:
I don’t really want to suggest publicity as a tool for someone who is in survival mode. Thank you for thinking of me though there are lots of solutions out there. Keep at it.
To which the prospect write:
I do not find this to be very respectable…
I work full time and make more than $65,000 yearly… I do not need money badly, but I would love to get my website making enough to where I do not need to work full time and listen to someone bossing me around all day long…
I prefer not working with you after your rude comment of judgement!
P.S. If I am not in survival mode then how can I afford hosting, and own over 1,000 domains in cash parking?
Good luck making your $5 on here treating people like you have with me the same way…
Now here's what gets me. Why would (a) someone think I was disrespectful as an opening response to this... (after all, I did say thank you for thinking of me and encouraged) and then (b) did the person just totally forget they used the word "to survive out there.."
I mean, why was it disrespectful when I feed it back, but not when s/he said it?
And of course, finally, I do very well on Fiverr and elsewhere in my business. For someone making an objection based on "politeness" or the perception there of... why piss on my business and wealth?
