How to Learn from Problem Clients & Online Writing Jobs

In yesterday’s post, I told you about a client who tried to pay $25 for a $125 press release. Here are some more lessons from that encounter.

Remember when I mentioned in that post yesterday that the client didn’t know the difference between an article and a press release? I was amazed because to look at their site, you’d think they were a highly successful internet marketing firm.

I mean, one of their services was writing and distributing press releases for clients. Following are a few more lessons I learned – yet again – from that client. And, I say, “yet again” because I’ve been at this long enough that I’ve run across some problems multiple times.

I hope everybody had a fruitful Tuesday. I had one of those days where I just couldn't seem to get anything done. I was dragging, grouchy and just all around unmotivated. This is only supposed to happen on Mondays!!! Arrrrggghhhh. I'm going to bed early tonight and will try for a more productive day tomorrow.
