Now, now, what’s all this flirting? We’ll have none of that here. This is a ranting, moaning, and dueling forum, not the woman meets tiny capsicum on Tinder appreciation society.
Rude customers? Here’s a recent one. It started with a message from a self-help coach. i.e. An I’m a cantankerous emotional wreck who wants to seem important and well balanced:
I’m after copy to appeal to a womens audience.
Particularly, for a high end coaching business to appeal to that type of person.
Please do not send product samples - that is not what I’m after - I’m after powerful copy that connects to a woman’s heart and makes her want to take action to improve herself and her business.
Do you have any samples I could look at?"
Sorry, I don’t give away samples. That said, I wouldn’t have a problem with this brief providing that you could forward more information regarding the kind of coaching you offer.
Buyer instantly turning to infuriated toddler mode because she hasn’t got what she wanted:
"Whos asking you to giveaway anything?
I would NOT hire anyone that can not back their work.
And clearly - you cant.
"I hope that you have a wonderful day too.
Now curiously, I then got a notification that this buyer reported me for being inappropriate!
Personally, I think I was the perfect gentleman.
