I had a client who signed me on to create a social media campaign for their company and maintain it. We’d had an initial meeting where he asked me to describe my process and explain my rates. I did. Then, after the meeting, he hired me from website and the automated processes I had set up. Here’s the thing: at no point in this entire process did he tell me anything about what he wanted. I reached out for more info but he never responded to any emails. Then, he reached out independently (ignoring all my other messages):
Client: How’s it going?
Me: Well, I haven’t gotten started yet. I still need some input from you before I do anything.
Client: Well what have you been doing all this time?
Me: Other work, and TRYING TO GET IN TOUCH WITH YOU.
