Weekend Quick Tip: Try Being Nice to Clients

Guess what? You should try being nice to your freelance writing clients from time to time. Okay, most of you probably are nice to clients. But guess what? There are many in the industry who do not know what it means to provide good customer service. Instead, they treat clients poorly. Soon enough, they are losing these clients and their freelance writing business is suffering.

What does it mean to be nice? Well, this depends on who you are and the situation you are in. For me, being nice is respecting clients at all times. I have found out time after time that it does not cost anything to be nice. Take for instance a situation that I ran into a few weeks ago. I emailed an SEO company about the possibility of working with them. After a day or so I received an email that was far from “nice.” They more or less told me that I was wasting their time if my budget was not X dollars. Of course, I simply moved on and left well enough alone. Believe it or not, this has happened to me more times than I care to remember.

When you are nice to clients you are making things better for every party involved. Not only will it make them feel good, but it will do the same for you. Why would you want to be rude to your clients? In the end, this is not going to benefit you in any way, shape, or form. In fact, it is just going to make things worse. Even if somebody is rude to you, killing them with kindness is the best thing to do.

If you have the tendency to treat your freelance writing clients poorly, try to change this right away. You will find that this simple change will keep clients coming back for more as opposed to seeking out a new freelancer.
