Scenario 1. Last week someone wrote me an email saying her sister wanted a birthday cake and I should call her. She enclosed her sister's number and hers. I did not call because I had not dealt with her or her sister before. I was thinking that I would spend my money calling her and then what if she was not going to order? Also I thought that if her sister was really serious about ordering then she was the one who was supposed to call me. I replied the email giving her my numbers and politely telling her to call me instead as I my phone needed recharging first.
Scenario 2. A bride sent me a message on my fb page inquiring about wedding cakes and asking me if it was possible for us to meet. I replied telling her where she could find me. After some days, she wrote again, today asking me to come to her workplace so we can meet and discuss. I have not replied the message yet but thought I should come here talking to you about this.
I really want more business especially regarding wedding cakes. If I react by going/calling will I not look like someone who is so desperate for business? How would you react? TIA!
