Very Active Signmaker
I know people don't like giving cell numbers out, but I think its giving me an advantage in getting business. When someone calls I've started to ask them to TEXT me such and such (like a picture or address) instead of emailing, and usually we just end up communicating that way. I think that has been helping win some bids because the last two orders I got they thanked me for the prompt responses. I assume they are getting bids from the bigs in town and they can take days to email back. Knowing they can shoot me a text and get a response makes them feel better about going with us. I know when I'm subbing out work and dealing with other sign companies, I definitely gravitate towards people that respond in a timely matter.
