It happens to nearly every freelance writer at some point. You need to drop a client. But how do you break the news? What do you say in your farewell email to clients?
There’s usually at least one main reason you’ve got a bad taste in your mouth for a client.
They don’t pay enough. Their people aren’t appreciative. Their deadlines are too crazy. Or maybe all three. Sound familiar?
Maybe things started out great, but now the situation has changed. There’s a new editor or marketing director. You find yourself putting off their work. And you may not be doing the best work you possibly could on their account.
You know the client has got to go. But what do you say in that farewell email to clients?
“Sayonara, sucker,” “See you in hell,” “It’s been great working with you,” or something else?
