How to deal with skeptic and struggling clients in this Freelancing world?
DON'T WASTE TIME TRYING TO CONVINCE A SKEPTIC BUYER!! - It's vital for your own success.
Never do this. Not on SEOClerks. Not anywhere. A potential client is one thing but
someone who's skeptic for starters, will consume tons of time. It's not worth it. Not even if it's a chance to get your very first sale.
You should always be polite and helpful but answering questions from people
who never seems to be satisfied, no matter how many questions you answer.. Usually never is.
• Stay away from struggling clients. You will most certainly, at least at some
point, end up with buyers who doesn't understand how things works.
People new to SEOClerks for instance. They ask you how they leave feedback &
where they give you information and all that.. Stay away because this is
time consuming and not worth it.
The coin is two-sided so in case you feel you have time for this, then proceed
since you'll never know if that specific buyer MIGHT be the one who'll place
multiple orders per day after that. You might stumble across the golden egg.. but
it's more likely you won't.
With all this being said, you should obviously try to help people and direct them to proper forum sections, to the support or to the FAQ section for information and answers to their questions etc. This will also help you to build up reputation and might lead to a good business relationship further on. Just remember to stay away from putting in unnecessary time answering hundreds of questions unrelated to your services or business. Time is key in this business and time is therefore also money.
