Honesty is the Best Policy with Freelance Writing Clients

Have you been 100 percent honest with all of your freelance writing clients in the past? If so, this is a great way of doing business. On the other hand, if you have been stretching the truth for any reason you must change your ways. If you don’t, this will backfire on you soon enough.

Remember this: if a client finds that you are not being honest there is a very good chance that they are going to stop working with you. All good business relationships are built on trust. If you don’t have this you don’t have much.

Why have you been lying? Some freelance writers think that it makes more sense to tell clients what they want to hear, as opposed to the truth. Even though this may work out for you in the short term, most of the time the real truth is exposed sooner rather than later. At this point, you will have some explaining to do.

Also, keep in mind that your clients rely on you for high quality information and advice. You are the professional, and for this reason they are putting a lot of stock in what you have to say. If you are constantly telling lies, you are not doing your client any favor. In fact, you may be steering them down the wrong path which can in turn cost them a lot of time and money.

Even though it is not always easy, it is important to tell the truth anytime you are dealing with a client. In the long run, honesty is always the best policy.
