    the wife gave me praise this morning as we sat drinking coffee at breakfast
    over the handling of a signup from bhw last night, felt good.

    long story short, im contacted last night by a vip member wanting to purchas my
    lifetime gscraper proxy subscription, i add the user on skype, and he says to me the following.

    i explain to the user, for 12 years my job is port scanning proxys for seo scraping tools and
    nothing else, i have a basic understanding, but i point him to videos on youtube to watch.

    anyways the user says hes gonna watch videos - but still wants to pay for my product b4 he
    knows how to use gscraper, which i refuse - why will become clear - i tell him

    he asks how much the product will cost, which i explain, but i also tell him until hes tried a test list
    he can not join the product until then, its my way of knowing user is happy with my product.
    i send him a test list but have to do a quick team viewer to show him best proxy settings for
    gscraper and how to set them up...he seemed happy with the test list.....

    again he asks to pay having seen a sample, but my concience kicks in and i reply with

    we parted on good terms, him saying he will be in touch when he has watched some videos and has
    learned how to use gscraper, for me i refused to take his140GBP until hes ready to use my product
    and knows how to use the tool he will be using them in, in other words pay me when your good to go.

    as we end our chat he asks 1 final question,

    where as some people would try and sell multiple products to a person with a new tool and little
    understanding of it, i went with this approach, remember i have 3 gscraper proxy products

    told the wife about this this morning, i was expecting her to say, u turned down 140GBP because
    he hadnt learned to use gscraper yet, instead she said , thats how it should be done, take the money
    when he has a grasp of how to use your service and the tool he has bought
    buyer comes first - money second - FELT GOOD.

    Maybe one of the reasons I am not yet a millionaire is because I have a conscience obviously much like yourself.

    I would rather have 1 customer leave happy than 2 happy, 2 sort of satisfied and 10 unhappy. A solid business is built on reputation as you well know, you have been recommended on here numerous times for proxy services because of your reputation.

    its showing the customer between the difference of those who are money first
    and those who show the customer, when u get it working and know how to use it
    pay me then, otherwise money wasted til then right.

    lets face it who do most people trust, a guy whos focused on getting your cash
    or a guy whos focused on making sure your sure u no what your doing first.

    and ty black

    Good work. I've seen people do dodgy things just to make a quick buck but I've never seen those people be rewarded. Good business involves honestly and a good quality product, simple.

    Nice one Tony. That's the exact reason why you have so many happy people using your service. Even me I think I talked to you 3 times before you let me use your proxies.

    From what I see in this forum, it is all about helping others achieve their goals.

    Or maybe you don't see all the threads and posts on this forum with members helping other members?

    How long have you been in business for yourself? Have you raised children on that income? You won't last long term with that mindset. I've been working for myself for 25 years, and I'll tell you right now that when you've been in business for a very long time, you will be able to predict what will happen before it happens. When a customer does not know what he is buying, or how to use what he is buying, one of two things will happen. He will either ask for a refund, or you will spend endless hours helping the customer learn something. The latter is fine if the business owner has the time, but most don't have that kind of time.

    A couple of days ago, a woman had set up a time to buy a vintage bracelet. She wanted to come by and buy it, and give it to her niece as a graduation present. My brain told me that her niece was not going to like it and I would have to refund the woman. Teenage girls do not like this type of bracelet. The market for this kind of bracelet are collectors of this specific type of jewelry. I told the woman to show her niece a picture of the bracelet first before she bought it. No, no, no, the woman said-she was positive her niece would love it. Finally, I convinced her to just show the girl a picture. Shortly after, the woman said to me "My niece said 'You could buy me the bracelet, but I won't wear it'." This saved me going to the bank to deposit the money, going back to the bank to withdraw the money, and setting up another time to refund her. Now I could have made the sale and said no refunds on vintage jewelry, but why would I? I'm building up a good list of local clients who put in requests. Vintage jewelry is a flooded market and people who buy it from me could buy it anywhere-etsy, ebay, website stores. When you work for yourself, you have to make your brain take precedence over greed. Greed can kill a business faster than you can say blackhatworld.
