Some Freelance Writing Clients aren’t worth the Effort

As a freelance writer you probably spend a lot of time marketing your services with hopes of landing new clients. And when your marketing plan pays off there is no denying that you will be quite excited. That being said, there are times when a client simply isn’t worth the effort. It is always better to find this out sooner rather than later, but things don’t always work out this way.

Below are two situations you may face:

1. A client wants to work with you but you are unsure of whether or not the relationship will be mutually beneficial. For instance, you may be offered a group of 50 keyword articles. Sounds good, right? On the surface, yes. But if the client is only offering to pay a total of $100 you are probably better off moving on. Remember, you need to be selective about who you work with. Clients that want high quality work will have to pay for it.

2. You are already working with a client but your relationship is rocky at best. Over time you may find that some clients are no longer as accommodating as they once were, for whatever reason. Maybe they are treating you poorly or wanting to pay you less for the same type of work. Even if a client offered a lot in the past there may come a time when they are no longer worth your time and effort. It can be difficult to dissolve a relationship but you must keep the wellbeing of your career in mind at all times.

I have many great clients that are fun to work with. At the same time there have been times in the past when I moved on from a client because things were no longer working out. There may come a time when a freelance writing client is no longer worth the effort. If you are feeling this way, consider the pros and cons of dissolving the relationship before making a final decision.
