Risks for Freelancers

There are a few tips for Freelancers who need to make an income.
I recently interacted with a freelancer who creates logos.
I sent my requirements, and a picture as an example.

Two minutes later, I receive the “logo” which was simply my business name plastered on top of the picture I had sent.
I could have done this myself for free.
So I gave the freelancer a few tips, and instead of thanking me and understanding, he tried to spar with me and tell me that I am wrong.

Well, guess what? He lost a client.
All you need to do as a freelancer is check out who your client is.
Visit their website.
Learn about their business.
ASK questions. A lot of questions, so that you come across as a top professional who actually cares about their customers, and also make you customer feel special.
Remember: Without your customers, you don’t exist and you don’t make money.
Simple. RESPECT those who want to pay you for your services.
