Unrealistic Clients Who Want Perfection
Today’s topic is handling clients with unrealistic expectations. As a digital marketing freelancer, dealing with clients who have unrealistic expectations can be a challenging and frustrating experience.
In this solo pep talk episode, I discuss a rejection letter received by a Workgroup member from a business owner who was overly focused on perfectionism. I break down how you’re allowed to see red flags during a discovery call and say no if it’s not a good fit. While it’s beneficial to have marketing assets as a freelancer, like a website and social media, you don’t have to have huge follower and engagement numbers.
Tune in to find out:
- top qualities clients look for
- how to use rejection as an advantage
- the myth of constant content creation for your freelancing business
You don’t want to work with clients who focus on small, fixable issues and don’t appreciate your true talent. Clients need to look beyond superficial details and understand the value of adding a versatile digital marketer to their team.
