I work at a boutique public relations firm that represents a luxury apartment community with millions of dollars worth of assets. We were planning their grand opening event, which was budgeted for nearly $7,000.

Client: I don’t want to pay for a photographer. Do you know anyone who could shoot the grand opening for free in exchange for us hiring him in the future?

Me: I know someone, but I don’t like asking people to do their job for free.

Client: Why? 

Me: I don’t feel comfortable doing that. You can ask him if you want. But I won’t.

Client: Okay, thanks. I’ll think about it.

The next day…

Client: I just hired someone else to do it. It was easier that way. 

Then why didn’t you just hire my reference?
