Does anyone talk anymore ?
Every day I constantly get Emails about jobs.  Please send me an estimate for ........1  4 x 8 white sign with 27 black letters on it. Or similar Crap.
Even the Nationals send the same nothing info and want pricing.  Whats your best price ?

No one wants to give a phone number,  talk about anything. Just send a price on the unknown.

We are all becoming push button morons

One of the reasons why is, because it's easier to mass email you and the 30 other shops around the intended targeted area and look at the replies with the lowest price rather than taking the time to call 30 shops who might have too many questions

I've found that with the internet age, many folds don't want to actually talk to people.   Fear perhaps?    Also, with the almighty CORPORATION ruling the world now, no one wants to not have a paper trail in case of problem.    I've had PM's refuse to answer questions over the phone but send out yet another copy of the drawings, when I'm calling to question something on the drawings.    CYA is the new golden rule.  

I do agree your comment about the mass e-mailing.   We regularly get these from MC signs about a "potential service opportunity" and if you don't respond within 1.25 seconds, it;s already been assigned. 

For the "4 x 8 sign with 27 black letters" they are getting used to going online and getting prices for everything and anything.   And now just about everything is a commodity.

I always call.  No exceptions.  You don't build a relationship with a vendor w/o actually talking to them.

I am on the other side of the fence on this. I lost my hearing about 8 years ago, so as an owner I would be up S*** creek without the ability to "talk" digitally. I also get annoyed with the plain jane emails that have no info but want price, but I will most generally ask them once for details and if no good response I just delete the chain and move on. One other thing I like about email is that it can cover your AZZ in stead of "that is not what I said on the phone".

Just my perspective

I love talking with people as for one I type slow.  But.....I also will follow up with a email that has any info that needs to "officially" recorded.
