Hey Rob, two years ago you quoted me a price to write my book, well I’m ready now.

Me: Okay, but in those two years my prices have gone up several times due to demand and frankly I haven’t heard a peep from you in that time.

So you won’t honor the price you quoted?

Me: When I give a quote its valid for no more than 45 days, if you take action, great, you get the service at that price. If you don’t, well you don’t.

But I’m ready now.

Me: Oh, are you now…

Yes.

Me: You ready to pay my current rates and get started this week?

Well, what are your current rates?

{I give them my current rates}

Hmm, well.

Me: I’ll take that as…you’re not ready.

I will need more time.

Me: Well you have 45 days to decide.

I will need more time than that.

Me: So I suppose I will hear from you again in what…two years?

Hopefully sooner.

Me: Well the price I quoted is only valid the next 45 days, so the sooner you commit the better.

I said I need more time.

Me: Take all the time you need, just past 45 days and I can’t guarantee the rate.

Yes, you said that.

Me: Yes I did.

Okay, now you’re being condescending.

Me: Am I?

Yes.

Me: Well, if you gave me a price for services and I waited two years without contact then needed more time because I couldn’t afford the new price I’m sure you would act the same way.

{they hung up}

Hmm, what are the chances I’ll help them with their book in 45 days…or heck in 2 years?
