You’ve got to have a steady stream of clients to keep your business growing and thriving, but that doesn’t mean you should take on EVERY client that walks through your door!
Your time is valuable, and you don’t want to waste it on clients that are more trouble than they’re worth. Save your services for loyal, appreciative, easy-to-work with clients, and avoid these 5 duds at all costs!
- Time WastersThey booked a consultation, you designed a project plan, they’ve asked a million questions, and they STILL won’t pull the trigger. Enough wishy-washy. Time is money, so stop wasting yours.
- Annoyingly NeedyTaking on a major home improvement project is a big decision, but you don’t have time to hold every client’s hand through every step of the process! Avoid clients that require countless phone calls, hourly updates, endless reassurance, or a daily deluge of questions. You can’t run your business if you’re too busy babysitting your clients.
- Budget Busters
You know those clients with champagne taste on a beer budget? Steer clear whenever possible. If they want to haggle over every penny or argue over every unexpected overhead, you’re better off choosing clients that have the budget to support their vision.
- ComplainersUgh, they’re the worst! These are the ones that are NEVER satisfied. They’ll nitpick and second-guess everything you do, no matter how great the finished product is. Plus, they’re never going to leave a great review because they’re never satisfied with anything!
- Late Payers
How will you pay your bills if you can’t count on your clients to pay theirs? If they don’t pay on time, they’re not worth your time. Put a note on their account so you won’t find yourself chasing down payment the next time they come knocking!
