    DC1- great post! I've been selling for years and like to feel that I can read people. The guy in my example, I honestly believe, hadn't really thought through what I go through to get him a finished drawing, OR that a day doing that for him was a day not doing billable work. I explained my processes and my expectations, and that got him at least invested enough to send me an email reiterating our conversation and giving me his contact info. So, we'll see where it goes. In the meantime, can I call what you suggest "sales judo?"

        That makes sense, I guess. Off is the inverse of on, which makes based off the inverse of based on. Got it. ...

        Okay, I know what a colloquialism is, but what is an inverse colloquialism?

        Probrien, in addition to HotButton's comments, which I agree with, the ad is a bit confusing. Maybe it's lacking...

        ''Based off'' is inverse of ''based on.'' ''Based on'' is a colloquialism.
        I think.

        Thanks for the feedback. That all makes a lot of sense. I'll take these points and re-work things....
