Never trust the sweet words of the Client.
With the demand for working remotely growing every day, most people are working remotely during this pandemic.
Some people work for themselves as freelancers while others work for someone else as an employee.
This blog is written from the perspective of a freelancing professional.
However, you have never heard of such a topic about clients and freelancers. The reason is that everyone gives freelancers the least consideration, but they do not realize the benefit they are receiving.
You need not worry! HimSim is back with an exciting topic that we hope you will find interesting.
So, you’re ready to experience our trolling level to get some fresh perspective on your day?
Here we go!
Would you consider yourself a Freelancer? Are you also afflicted by the same phase that we freelancers endure?
Have you ever felt that you have the sweetest clients that treat you like the best person on earth when you first meet with them? It is always said that you will have a lot of work ahead of you.
Directly, they emphasize that you need to prioritize their work and leave other tasks for another day. However, during payment they act very smartly as they change topics or give excuses that they will give you a lot of work.
What about freelancers in general? Or you’re not familiar with the field?
Those of you who are not familiar with what a Freelancer does, allow us to explain who is a Freelancer and the important role he or she plays in a client’s business.
In the context of freelancing, a freelancer is one who works for themselves or is one who is self-employed and works from home. By working on multiple projects, a freelancer can earn a fair amount of money depending on the skill set.
Freelancers are always able to work with a variety of client types. Some organizations prefer to work with freelancers under an agreement, while others operate under a trust-based system.
Those of you who are wondering what a freelancer does will find out once you read on.
You know, we live in India, which has a lot of talented people.
The same holds true for freelancing. A freelancer can be anyone like a Photographer, Copywriter, Caterer, Digital Marketer, Website developer, Graphic designer, Content writer, and so on. A freelance chooses to get paid for his/her work on either an hourly or daily basis.
Now, you are aware of a freelancer. A freelancer works hard full time, but some clients never pay off his/her hard work. As the client never appreciates, even sometimes the Client uses hard words so that the Freelancer will think the client is straightforward and the culprit is the Freelancer.
But, in actuality, it’s not true. Let us tell you how Clients show their true colors by the name of their real colors.
Showoff by Some Clients
The first thing every client says when we come in contact with them. Do you know what? We’re sure you know if you are a Freelancer. Okay! Let’s listen to the client’s words from a writer’s point of view.
“If you will give us quality work, we will give you long term work. ” No matter, the price is in points or paisa’s, they want quality work.
It means you will be an Entrepreneur after working with them; HAHAHA, and their constant words are, “We will increase your pay after some time.” No matter they can earn food from their home or not. They will increase your pay, or some clients think of themselves as Mukesh Ambani. Omg……..!!
The second thing when clients act real, but their habits and talks show how fake they are. They want quality work in a low payout. Lol! This thing clearly identifies “BHALE HI KHUD KE PAAS CHALANE KE LIYE CYCLE NAHI HO, LEKIN DUSRO KI GAADI MEIN KAMI NIKALNA HAI.”
Some Time Passing Client
So, let’s talk about the clients we get from Facebook. Facebook clients are of an extremely high level. Now, if you are wondering if this high-level like they will give you work of 50K? HAHA! Not at all.
They people do work as a servant themselves. They want quality work, but if you think of working for them, you should better open a tea stall that might improve your earning but never rely on such kind of cheap clients.
Type of clients
From an SEO Point of View
Let’s see the real face of clients from an SEO’s point of view. Some clients who work with you show their real faces during the time of payment. They started to find errors in the Freelancer’s work, and their words are always like “You need to work more hard, I’m not satisfied or bla bla bla. or sometimes cut your pay by acting smart.
Although all these things are cleared, bringing the site on the top page of Google within a month is not at all possible, but they think like it’s everyone’s cup of tea. However, they don’t know a single “S” of SEO, but the way they complain is like they are the master of this field.
If within a month, you don’t get the ranking, then they start to put a weapon on your neck; their words change from “It’s okay work harder to, we don’t care how you do… We want to rank.” AREY JAB GOOGLE BABA HI NI RAZI, TOH TUM KYA UKHAD LOGE…
Don’t ask them for payment else their heart will start to pain. Like a Freelancer asked them for their kidney. If you don’t have the potential to play well to the Freelancers, better work independently. Don’t beg for the freelancers to work for you.
They make efforts too; if you can’t appreciate them, at least don’t demotivate them. Don’t forget that Karma doesn’t leave anyone. Pay Freelancers on time instead of cutting their costs.
From a Graphic Designer’s Point of View
Some Clients think Logo designing or Graphic designing is an effortless task, just like their rejected drawing of class 1st. But, in reality, it’s not like this. Ask a client to design a graphic one time, and they will get to know, it’s not a design that you used to create during school time; everything is considered here.
It’s a professional work that requires only skilled and creative persons. The client always speaks bla bla bla just by giving you a penny, but it’s not easy sitting in front of System for around 4-5 hours to create a graphic for your business, and still, if a client does not like it, the client is going nuts.
The other thing is that they are always in a hurry, and if by mistake, any freelancer cannot understand, they take away their work. Now, who makes the client understand that designing a logo is not that easy, it’s not a tea stall to prepare a tea within 2 mins. It’s a matter of professionalism, and if you don’t know the meaning of professionalism, google it.
From the Tele-caller point of view
If, after proper tele-calling and efforts, the calling person cannot get the results, the client will fall behind his life and is going to eat him like a chicken. Oh god!
Some clients run for leads, but they can’t see the efforts of a tele-caller, and if the Freelancer is not able to complete the target, then what they do? Do they give you their life, or do they give you their liver? Hmmm…
Instead of demotivating them, if you encourage them, it can be a case that they achieve the target. If you tell any client to crack the deal, they switch to Hindi or maybe any other language after conversing with two words English.
If there is any mistake in the work, they make faces like a comedy circus joker. It will be better to give them a mirror at that time and tell them to have a look at themselves. LOL!
Note for the people who give work to Freelancers
First of all, we are not pointing out anyone here. The purpose of this blog is to freshen up your mood, but if we see the reverse side, this is the harsh reality that every Freelancer faces while doing the work of clients.
At least motivate them so that they, after getting the motivation, give you the much better outcome from the next time, but if you demotivate them, there may be a case when they never respect you and provide the negative view regarding your work.
Note for freelancers
This is a special message for the freelancers. First of all, you need to be picky of your clients, as this is the generation where no one is yours. Only people show that they are with you and, in the end, betray you.
And, here is the case of clients, how can you think they will be of yours? No dear. You’re mistaken.
A client is of no one. If you are expecting your client is going to give you loads of work with loads of money. Here, it can be a case when you get loads of work, but don’t expect that he will fill up your pocket. If he is assuring you of bulk work at starting, then don’t forget to take a little security to gain the trust.
Especially for Freelancer Girls/women
If someone asks for your number on Facebook or any other social media channel or asks for any samples before. Then, remember one thing, if the client is serious about work, he/she can give you work on that platform. Many scams are going on social media channels, and they people act like they are going to work, but in actuality, some do ask for your details for collecting the data.
Or some act more smartly by showing your samples to their clients that they have written such. Foolish beggers (clients)! Remember to show only a single sample published on the Internet if you think the client is genuine, and if the client is sincere, then that one sample is enough for them to give you work or test your skills. Maintain the quality, and you will get the right clients.
