I have a two-pronged question that I would really like answered. I suspect there will be various points of view.
Scenario. You contact somebody because you're thinking of hiring them to do one or more jobs (eg. website design, article writing, editing books, article writing, etc).
Question. What do you do if you get a quote and you don't take it?
Do you respect the person providing the quote?
OR do you simply ignore that person and keep looking?
I won't say what happens to me until I see some replies and feedback that made you decide to make that decision.
***I am clarifying what I have written after a few comments.
I am the service provider and I'm wanting to understand people and reasons they may not reply after I provide quotes for jobs.
I know I used the term "respect." I hadn't considered "desperate" or "untrustworthy."
I appreciate all the answers so far and hope for more.
Thanks for reading.
