Nearly every freelance writer I’ve ever met has had a bad client.
You know the types:
- The control freak who wants to instant-message you 24/7.
- The dreamer who wants the moon, but doesn’t have time to tell you how to fly there and get it for them.
- The dysfunctional nutjob who doesn’t really know *what* they want…until they see what you wrote. Then they know, that’s not it.
- The fly-by-night who disappears with your final payment.
- Last but certainly not least, the super-low payer.
Hopefully, terrible clients are a rarity for you.
But some freelancers find themselves with a steady stream of bad clients. It’s nothing but bad clients, one after the other.
If you’ve had your fill of bad freelance clients, there are three changes you may need to make. Fortunately, they’re fairly simple. Changing these up should help you start getting clients who pay you well and are a pleasure to work with.
