Was recommended for a job yesterday
I received a call from a BASF rep in Illinois who wanted to get his mitigation system in at a job in northern WI. He got my name from a company in mid-Wisconsin and asked if I shot blast concrete. I told him I can do that, then he gave my name to a contractor in southern WI that I've worked with before (new project manager though so I don't know him) and he called me.

What he wanted was to blast 300sf, and the job is 200 miles away. He wanted a sf price. He had another 3600sf that he may need done. Of course the 300sf would be an outrageous price ($3/sf) but the 3600 I could do at a good rate.

He called back this am and said the price was okay, and he wanted the 3600 done at the same time. Like a dummy I told him we could do much better on the job now (after he had $3/sf approved.... :dodgySmile. Oh well, we have time to fit the work in and it will be a couple more clients in my history.

Question Do you give paybacks when you are recommended?
