Our content is driven by user-submissions, and we’re grateful for each and every morsel of grief that makes its way to our front page. Since opening up the comments, our community has been vocal about what they do want (truly hellish stories) and what they don’t want (turns out nobody likes popups). Interestingly, the content and community are starting to overlap.
The question of what happens after the closing one-liner or final client comment is almost always asked. Lawyer up, revisit the contract, and get rid of that damn pop up are all recurring answers from the community. Clients From Hell is eager to hear about your problems, not just because they support our extravagant lifestyles, but so we can also help you with them (while supporting our extravagant lifestyles). We teamed up with The Freelancers Union to help battle deadbeats. Our latest collection of stories is supplemented with advice from established freelancers. We offer a free e-book to our subscribers to help them find their feet as freelancers, but it lacks a lot of specifics.
As such, we’re pleased to announce our new newsletter series, aimed at helping freelancers deal with each and every kind of crappy client they come across. The newsletter takes aim at the problems and complaints that arrive in our inbox every day (often with superfluous exclamation marks).
Let us know what you think and what you want out of future articles. Enjoy!
