Tips for Establishing a Good Client Relationship

As a freelance writer, you want to establish good relationships with all your clients. This goes without saying, but believe it or not, it is an area that many forget about. Remember, your goal should be for each client to want to work with you long term. If this does not pan out, you at least want them to get in touch with you in the future if they have any writing related needs. Without a good relationship, it is safe to say that you will complete one job for a client and that will be that. Simply put, this is not the way to build a successful, long term freelance writing career.

Here are three tips for establishing a good client relationship:

1. Follow through on deadlines. Clients love freelance writers who meet deadlines. This is a big problem for many companies when hiring freelancers. Better yet, if you can beat your deadline you will show the client that you truly care about them.

2. Go above and beyond. If there is anything extra that you can do for a client, go for it. This does not mean that you have to write for free or give a huge discount, but just a little something, such as adding images to an ebook, can go a long way. Again, when you go the extra mile the client is going to remember this.

3. Stay in touch with all your clients! Even if your deadline is two months out, make sure that you stay in touch. Update the client on your progress, and let them know that you are available to answer any questions that may come up, etc.

You do not have to work overly hard to establish good client relationships. In fact, if you are genuine and respectful, while also following the tips above, you will be on the right path.
