Well, it happened. You lost your biggest client. An Anchor Client. A client that you relied on for a steady income. A client you could easily rely each month. Relying solely on anchor client’s routine work on your way may leave you in an uncertain financial position if and when it dissolves.
This podcast episode focuses on what to do when you receive the email of, “We are moving to the other direction” and the client no longer needs your services. The hope is that you have given this client enough to keep you in mind for more projects.
In addition, some businesses may evaluate their budget and financial conditions during the financial year, which may result in a reduction in the funds allocated to your plan. Despite the terrifying idea, this is something that increasingly freelancers have to deal with.
Losing a job at your job can not only be a huge shock to your ego but can also be the hardest thing to deal with, at least emotionally. Losing a client over your work doesn’t mean you’re a terrible writer. Other times, clients may reevaluate their results and change direction, requiring a different type of writer. If the issue is with the quality your work, be sure to take any feedback into serious consideration.
