If you bought a car, and asked the garage not to put their advertising
sticker on the back, you wouldn't expect them to make a fuss over that would

If they did make a big fuss, and put the stickers on anyway, would you go
back there, or recommend them to anyone else?

I think you'll get more work through word of mouth, than through links from
a client-site, if they are happy about your work and attitude.
