I'm a freelance direct-response copywriter and marketer, working chiefly with multi-millionaire entrepreneurs and business-owners.
I almost never buy on low price alone, I'm not interested in your professional qualifications. All I care about is your *ability* and your willingness to get the job done. I don't like excuses or whiners.
If you bid on my projects, I expect you to tell me what you're going to do and when you're going to do it. Then, if you win, I expect you to DO what you've said WHEN you've said you'll do it.
I pay handsomely and promptly and I'm much more interested in long-term relationships with competent, honest people who have ability and integrity than in cut-price crap from amateurs.
