How to Reply to Cheap People


We are not a free service, we charge all our clients and we have many fortune 500 clients. We charge the other clients the same as we would charge you. In fact many of our clients would not even consider a consultant that works for free, because you pay for what you get. So if someone is working for free, the end product is worth nothing.

Does your Lawyer also do free work for you?

I do not agree with you at all.

We charge to work on a client’s requirements.

I think you will only get crappy people that are no good to work for you for free.

Good luck,

Kind regards,

Dear Tom,
By the way, I think it is reasonable for a potential client to be asking for information, before shelling out any money. But the first thing that you asked was about money, and I dont think our company would be comfortable assigning a job to a person, who doesnt not want to know what our requirements are, but asking for money.
