Simple. Filter your prospects.

If you are confused thinking how you can do that, just read ahead and you will know the common traits of bad clients.

They are Clueless

Prospects who are clueless about what they want to achieve, how your work is going to help them are full of red flags.

Beginner?- Start at Low Price

Another red flag in some clients is that they expect you to work at a lower price just because you are a newbie.

They have Unrealistic Expectations

Many people who does not have a clear picture about their business will behave like this:

Be Available 24/7

When you agree to work for a prospect and convert him into a client, he has the right to call you. But not at unexpected times.

No, you can not predict that.

All you need to do is to make everything clear in your contract.

You can ask him like this before closing the deal:

Get Exposure

Clients who want you to write for free for exposure are a big no-no.

Avoid working with clients who have these red flags.

Trust me, you are helping yourself immensely if you reject them.

What about good clients?

Good clients are totally opposite of such clients. Good people are in every industry. Some will allow you to explore and experiment. Some will become a part of your network and will refer you to other people. Some will advice you how to make improvements and much more.

Final Words

When you step into a industry, there are many people who will try to take advantage of you. But there are also people who do justice to professionalism.
