Hi everyone,

I am finding it quite difficult to obtain evaluations/scores for my WWA records. I have sent requests to the 3 or 4 agencies I have recently worked with and, despite their satisfaction, none of them has commented on their willingness to work with me again.

How do you get your clients to comment on their WWA? Do they usually answer your requests and indicate their degree of WWA?

Thanks,
Nat

Wait until you've established a relationship Feb 11, 2008

I think it's best not to ask for a WWA until you've established some kind of relationship with a PM.
I call it a relationship if you've done a couple of projects for them in a limited period of time (say, 4 or 5 projects in 2 months' time) and if the communications have become 'relaxed'- not 100% formal anymore.

Also, if it is a big agency, you must make sure to get to your PM personally. Requests to a general e-mail address will most likely be ignored; chances are no-one will know who you are or what you've done for them.

The point is, they must be willing to do you a favour, for whatever reason.

Good luck!
