I was thinking the other day about all things I have learned after dealing with clients for the last 7 years. Some things can only be learned by dealing with real life experiences. How you run your business and the rules you put in place for your clients is often, unfortunately, learned from bad experiences (or if you are lucky, advice from your peers).
I contacted some folks about possibly sharing some experiences and to share with us what they (or the client) had learned from that experience.
The Goal of This Series
The main goal is to share with other SEO’s, marketers, web designers etc., lessons we have learned so maybe you can avoid some of the “horror” we have had to face. Some may say that horror is a strong word, but it really isn’t. The amount of stressed caused by difficult clients and moronic things that clients do is really astounding, and completely unhealthy.
If you don’t have rules in place for clients you could be setting your self up for some major misery and more importantly lost money. Time wasted is money lost! You have to make sure you have not lost money due to client laziness, indecisiveness, lack of organization, ignorance and lack of dedication to the completion of a project.
I hope that this series will help many of you avoid stress, lost money and horror stories of your own.
