Beware the 'No Rush' Customer
Your phone rings. It's a client looking to place a repeat order.
As an answer to your question, “When do you need it?” The customer responds, “No rush.”
Warning! Warning! Warning!
This same client will be on the phone with you soon asking for a delivery date. When you give it, they will ask if you can do better and be disappointed when you can’t.
But, but, but … didn’t they say it was no rush?
Two things: First, don’t believe them. While you don't need to put a rush on the job by any means, don't think you have extra time. Second, never ever share this “no rush” information with production. You won't see the job for months.
