Not every inquiry is a legit-client!
❌if they are using language like “ do you take credit card payment?”
❌ wasting your time with very detailed questions early on
❌ maybe they contact you about a hot-trendy item service-so would be easy to answer them about it
❌ if you can’t get them to fill out an inquiry form that has all the answers to other questions then that’s a major red flag
✅ unfortunately small business owners are a big target since we like to answer and please every single person!
✅ have boundaries and have a way to intake people early on on a system that works for you like having them sign a blank form, having them fill out an inquiry -having them pay a deposit-scammers will smarten up real quick if they have to pay money
