Episode details

The client asked for a proposal, which I wrote up. It included the writing of strategies, deliverables, and then on-going work ... However, they came back wanting more deliverables, without strategies, and were hoping I'd be able to 'update LinkedIn etc.' for them ... I then got an email saying 'can you look at doing this work too', which a big piece of work that wasn't outlined in my proposal, or mentioned in my feedback. I'm meeting them coffee again, however, I just don't think they see the value of having an experienced communications person, so they don't want to really spend a lot of time or money on the project. Much as you'd like to help everyone, there will always be those people for whom you're not a good fit. Who have different values to you. Who work differently to you. Wouldn't it be great if you could weed the wrong 'uns out before you even get started?
