So, I had a life coach order from me yesterday. It’s becoming like a joke the universe keeps playing on me. However, this time, the life coach in question didn’t actually order anything.
This buyer ordered, sent me a link to their 90s looking website with some platitudes appearing like a badly written haiku, and asked me to advise them how to market their life coaching course.
They have the copy they need, (they said meaning their bad haiku) they just need to know whether to run a FB ad campaign or create a sales funnel to make people buy their course.
Naturally, I checked quickly to make sure that my best selling gig still says "I will write you 500-words of sales copy" and not, "I will be your life coaching business marketing consultant."
Once satisfied that I hadn’t started offering life coaching business advice, I then decided to deliver exactly what this buyer wants.
Having now worked for what feels like hundreds of life coaches but what actually might be just 10, I put my life coaching hat on and gave this buyer the best generic marketing advice that money can buy. Then, I re-wrote their confusing haiku into an actual sales copy.
All in all, this buyer has now taken delivery of the 500-word sales copy I say I deliver in my gig, plus the best answer to their marketing woes that I can give them.
All that said, I have a feeling that they are not going to be happy. It really did sound like they want a definitive answer to their marketing question. However, I don’t care. In fact, I am chomping at the bit to leave this buyer a review calling them out for the sheer rudeness of ordering something I do not provide.
I am raring to go and I’m not the only seller that has left this buyer a bad review. However, I am acutely aware that this buyer might actually leave me a nice review.
In this case should I say what I really feel about this order? Or should I just leave a generic 5-star thank you message and hope for the best so I don’t cause a fight?
