Do you want to know how you can work with the best clients out there? Finding the right clients are only one part of the equation. But always remember, you should also work to keep your existing clients happy and satisfied.
Here are 4 hints to know if their a good client or not:
1. They establish professional boundaries
Does the client engage with you in a professional and respectful manner? When it comes to working as a freelancer, possibly remotely and even across timezones, boundaries matter a lot.
2. They respect your rates
Lowballer clients are all over the freelancing world. Clients who don't respect your rates see you as an expense, not as a collaborative partner for their business.
3. They are responsive and available
A good client is a client who is available to explain their needs to you. It is a challenge to work with clients with communication skills that are downright poor.
4. They treat you as a collaborative partner
Stick with clients who value and respect your service and treat you as someone they can collaborate with to achieve their business goals. Avoid clients who show condescending attitudes towards you.
