So, I'm just hoping to gather a fun bit of statistics here, and see what you guys think. I spend a LOT of my time sending and recieving emails these days, communicating with potential clients, answering questions, etc. A lot of these clients respond immediately, or within the normal working hours. They are all local clients. But then, there's always the odd few that consistently send emails on the weekend, or at night, and then expect a reply at the same time. So here's my question: What would you guys do? Is there a client so important, you'll give up your free time for them? Do you have a cutoff point? Personally, I have responded and worked hard all weekend and all night, more than once. I see it as a bad habit, as the client should be able to understand I need sleep. If they don't, they aren't worth working for. IMO.
