Clients you don’t want

January 24

Navigating the freelance world can be tricky, especially when it comes to clients. An article by writer and brand consultant Austin L. Church outlines the 3 Types of Freelance Clients You Don’t Want to help identify and avoid potentially problematic ones. These include:

  1. Those shopping for a commodity
  2. Those fond of negotiating
  3. Those short on budget

Each type comes with its own set of challenges, from changing ingrained beliefs to dealing with negotiation tactics. In this article, Church presents some effective strategies for dealing with such clients.

"To win a loyal client who will keep sending you projects takes the same effort as winning one that will leave after the first project. The trick is knowing one from the other."
