Re: Solo Ads for Offline!

Re: Do You Give Guarantees For Your Offline Services!

Andrew is spot on about charging 50% upfront - I once didn't as it was a recommend client and lost out on almost $5000 dollars.

Re: Do You Give Guarantees For Your Offline Services!

I don't promise anything except that I will do the work we outline in the contract.

Why?

Want an example?
