Tons of companies have to work with clients, but they're not always a ray of sunshine to deal with. In fact, 30 percent of businesses complain about clients who make late or non-payments. Having built the marketing strategy and web presence for more than 2,000 clients, Ciplex created an infographic, A Field Guide to the Wonderful World of Clients, to help companies recognize and deal with challenging clients.
"Many companies face challenges when working with tough clients," said Ilya Pozin, founder of Ciplex. "This field guide offers a comprehensive view of some of the problems you may encounter when working with a bad client, plus suggestions for fixing the issue without ruining your business relationship. As a serial entrepreneur, I know that learning how to recognize when a client is making unreasonable demands is key for saving your business unnecessary headaches."
The infographic offers profiles of a few problems one may encounter when working with clients, detailing how to identify when someone may be hard to work with, and what actions to take to solve the issue. Some tough types of clients include those that display signs of:
- Constant changes of heart--the client constantly changes their mind about what they want
- Flightiness--the client changes deadlines quickly
- Hands-off approach--the client offers no opinions on the project whatsoever, making the task or project difficult
- Penny pinching--a client that's a bit too concerned about the budget
- Overworking--the client never takes a day off and expects their contact to be available 24/7
Along with profiling different types of difficult clients and how to recognize them, A Field Guide to the Wonderful World of Clients includes concrete solutions for dealing with the unmanageable. View the infographic here.
