Lately I’ve been approached by clients who come to me with work on a low budget. They say they approach me because I’ve mentioned that I can accommodate certain budgets that don’t fit my packages. This is for example, the work qualifies as a $25 project instead of the basic $20 package or standard $30 package.
Not only that, they state that it will be ‘too much’ for them in US dollars, so they request me to adjust the pricing. Recently I took work from a client who paid according to AUD rate because it would cost him too much in US dollars. I had already given him a good discount for the first time but I was appalled when he requested for a revision on the same order, and when I mentioned that there are extra charges for revisions, he started nit-picking my work. I’m pretty disturbed right now as not only did I work at a lower rate for them, they had the gall to berate my well-written content and show resistance to pay extra for the revisions.
I’m not going to charge them for the revisions, but at least hoping for a good review. But I can’t help think of the possibility that they might not leave a good rating and it’ll negatively impact my seller’s profile even though it would be extremely unfair.
Sharing my grievances and looking forward to some good advice from my fellow freelancers on how to deal with such clients.
