Are Clients Rejecting your Work?

There is nothing worse than a client rejecting your work and telling you that everything you wrote was a waste. While this is never good, it is something that will probably happen to you soon enough. Even if you try to avoid this, and you should, there will come a time when a client simply hates the work that you send them.

If this is happening to you on a regular basis something is wrong. Sure, there are going to be times when clients don’t like your work, but this is not a situation that you should face day in and day out. If you are, it is time to make some changes to ensure that you get out of this rut as soon as possible.

1. Ask for better instruction up front. When I don’t get clear instructions on what the client wants it often times turns bad. It is much better to be on the same page from the get-go than to guess what the client wants. If you guess wrong there is a good chance that you will be making extensive edits in the near future.

2. Don’t stray from what the client wants. Once you know what the client wants you should stick to this no matter what. Even if you don’t agree with the direction of the project it is your job as a freelance writer to do what you are told. You can make suggestions upfront, but when it comes down to it you are being paid to follow specific instructions. If you stick to them you should be fine.

3. You aren’t putting your best foot forward. Even the best freelance writers have off-days or times when they are a bit sloppy. You want to avoid these circumstances at all costs. No matter what the project make sure you do your best in giving the client what they want. Not only will this help with the project at hand, but it will also do wonders for gaining repeat business.

If more and more clients are rejecting your work something is going terribly wrong. There is a very good chance that one of the three points above pertains to you. If so, make the proper change in order to get back on track.
