    Might need - might be needing: Subtle difference?

    Hi!

    how do you properly say in official correspondence that you might be in need of someone's services in the future? Can you say "I might need your services in the future", or is "I might be needing your services in the future" better? What's the real stylistic and grammatical difference between "might need" and "might be needing"?

    B.

    It would help to know what services you are talking about. Anyway, just a few suggestions:

    Your services might be of future interest to our company. We will keep your request on file.

    We might consider taking advantage of your services later in the future. If that happens, we will personally notify you.

    We might consider your services at a later time.

    If there is a need to utilize your services in the future, we will notify you by mail.

    or something like that...
