How to Identify “Bad” Clients

The ones who are not right for your business — and why.

Ways you can detect “bad” clients:

Their first words are “What are your prices?”

They immediately or aggressively push back on your pricing.

They don’t want to sign a contract.

They are not responsive to emails/texts with questions or needs.

They try to make too many additional or unreasonable demands outside the scope of the work you previously agreed to.

They are demanding many changes, especially once the work is mostly complete. Even if you have done what you originally agreed to.

They are not making payments on time.
