Need help with an important text message
I have a very wealthy female client who about a month ago wanted me to repolish some areas of her marble floor. I'm 90% sure she just wanted me to do the work because she was bored. There isn't really that much wrong with the floors. Unfortunately when I went to look at the floor I couldn't do the work right there and then, which she wanted, as I had other work I had to do.
Anyway, we set a date for a few days following and then the night before the work is due to be done she texts me to tell me that she is going away and will contact me when she gets back.
Since she got back I have texted her twice(it's the only way she communicates with me) and she has replied she is too busy; I know her well enough that if she had decided not to get the work done she would just tell me.
It didn't worry me before but this week, after a cancellation, I have no work on and I really need the money.
So I need help crafting the perfect text and sending it at the ideal time.
This is what I know about her
She's very wealthy BUT reasonably cost conscious
She spends alot of time at home
Her kids are all at varsity, except one who is in his last year at high school
She detests the established stone companies( mainly because she thinks they are extortionists and they do charge big dollars)
She knows me as I fixed some problems with her external terrazzo when I was working for another company. The company did not do marble and when I saw all her marble inside I told her to give me a call if she ever needed some work done on it.
I think she was quite impressed by me
Thus far my texts have consisted of, "Ready to get your marble done?" Yes I know they are hardly compelling calls to action but I was just waiting to hit her on a bored day. This is my improvement
"Hi, I'm free to polish the marble, remove that ugly etch this week. After that I may be going to "???????" to work and I don't know when I'll be back "
The moving part is true. One of our largest cities is going through a rebuild at the moment after a major earthquake and there is a tonne of work there
The large etch mark is the only significant defect in the marble the truth is
I can't make the areas I'm working on look too good otherwise it will just make the areas I don't touch look bad.
Anyway, any help will be much appreciated
