If I have not met you before, don't assume that just because you message me that we are going to get together. I have so many people messaging me at ALL times.
Here is an example of a proper introduction that I will immediately respond to:
"Hello my name is ____. I found your contact information on ____. I would like to set up a __ hour(s) appointment for ___. Will that time for in your schedule? Here are my references. What is the best method for a deposit? Hope to hear from you soon.
@ChristinaR1 I like this so much can I repost this?
