I am a freelance copywriter, I spent the day sending proposals to
potential clients and negotiating prices with them. This particular client and
I had been messaging back and forth for a while, during which time I had his work-stream open and responded within
a minute to every question.
Your prices are a bit high, is there any wiggle room? My budget is $150
Sure, I can do it for $150, let me edit the proposal.
I edited the proposal and sent it. At this point it is 10PM, so I
go to bed. The next morning I wake up to two messages:
AM) Hi, can you send your Skype details for a quick chat before I accept your
(3:00AM) PROPOSAL DECLINED.
REASON: Freelancer is unresponsive and does
not answer queries.
I apologised for sleeping and closed the stream.
