Dealing with clients can be frustrating. Sometimes you feel like you have to be a mind reader to understand what they want. However, if the client is a good one, and you like working for them, be patient. Work to exceed your client’s expectations.
The rewards will come.
A case in point.
Working with a Dream Client
Last year, I started writing a monthly blog post for a dream client. Go here for details. The work was consistent and the pay was good.
Towards the end of last year, I asked Anna what themes she was thinking of going with this year. You see, we had been throwing ideas back and forth all year. And she likes working with themes. This way, she can develop a list of related blog posts and them run as a series, one after the other.
As an aside, I love this approach. It helps you to focus on one set of ideas and extract every angle.
Anna would send me a list of themes and I’d send back a corresponding list of article ideas. Sometimes she’d use them, sometimes not. That was okay. And sometimes she would contact other sponsors (people who use their products and review them), get them to write a few paragraphs each, then do a roundup on a topic.
Either way, I was providing value. Spruiking (promoting in non-Aussie speak) ideas to a client is a surefire way to become a valuable part of their team.
Anyway, at the end of last year, Anna said she hadn’t thought about 2019 and would get back to me after the Christmas break (we have an extended break over Christmas in Australia).
