Searching for the right vendor
Having a solid connection with your vendor is important. Keep in mind that it is actually a good idea to let your potential vendors know if you have decided to book someone else, or if they are out of your budget. As much we would love the opportunity to tell you all about our business and how we can help you, we are completely understanding if you happen to find a good fit before we have a chance to meet. Out of courtesy, you should notify individuals that you have reached out to, to let them know that you are no longer in need of their services. The more detailed you are about why you didn’t pursue a consultation, the more it helps us to market better. Whether the photos on social media didn’t match your style, or the website lacked specific information that you were looking for, your feedback, negative or positive is very much appreciated, plus we’ll stop bugging you with emails and phone calls ;-) Of course, it can sometimes be a hard pill to swallow, but if we don’t know what isn’t working for us, then we can’t fix it. In addition, I would like to suggest that if you find multiple vendors that fit your needs, go ahead and chat with them all. This isn’t an aggressive industry, and I can assure you that most of us won’t push you into making a decision on the spot. I encourage you to give each one a chance, see what they have to offer because we all have different things we bring to the table. But ultimately, there is only one person that is going to be the best fit for you.
