Online writing: what to do with a perfectionist

What do you do with a perfectionist-client? Deliver.

Yes. We always should. But what are you going to do if this client asks for multiple revisions?

Regretably, tell him that you can no longer work on his project. [as it seems that he’s never satisfied whatever adjustments in content you make]

This is most practical to do.

Otherwise, you are just going to waste your and his time.

On your part, imagine how much money and time you lose with this client. 

You could have been writing for other clients, for other web projects. Spending time on seemingly “unlimited” revisions is impractical.

So how many revisions should you accept? Only one.

If you knew for yourself you have followed the requirements, do not let this client asks for multiple revisions.

Or else, you will also waste his time. Instead of his project progressing to the next phase, he will be stuck in the phase where he is waiting for you to perfect his almost impossible perfectionism.

Writers, you will meet these clients.

While they can be a challenge to improve, they may not be practical to handle if writing is your income source.

You get the point? Sure you do. 🙂

Do not let a perfectionist client stops you from working on better projects.

Happy writing!
