I do freelance social media. I am the only marketing manager for a small, high-end, boutique. I get an email from my client at the beginning of November.
Client: Here are our November and holiday specials. Please post these ASAP.
It took me three hours to create content, edit photos, and create graphics for posts for Thanksgiving week and weekend. I email the scheduled items. Two hours later, I get an email reply.
Client: Those aren’t our deals. Those were only preliminary. Here are our actual sales; we’ve had these for two weeks. You should have asked before you did all of that work.
It took another three hours to re-edit all posts and create new graphics.
