Today I am trying to hire a fence builder.
My fence, along with many fences in my neighborhood, was blown down by Hurricane Irma.
When I called a bunch of companies a few weeks after the storm, only one called me back. The rest never responded at all.
Business is good for fence builders right now. But it will get slow again.
I won’t be hiring anyone who didn’t bother to respond the first time.
Even if you are too busy to help someone today, make sure to at least call him back. A few minutes of effort could win you a sale down the road.
