When FreelancerMap asked 400 freelancers to describe their biggest complaints about their job, 11.9 percent said that clients expecting them to work around the clock was at the top of the list. We live in an age where online retailers such as Amazon have conditioned consumers to expect everything instantly. Freelancers may frequently receive calls, instant messages, or emails from clients at all times. In some cases, the client may not even be in the same time zone. To avoid this type of time management problem, one important step freelancers can take is establishing some reasonable policies about handling communications with clients, particularly regarding revisions.
Trust is integral between businesses and clients. With its mere existence, prices are accepted, delivery times are met, and the possibility of future deals is set. Most, if not all, business interactions are primarily anchored on trust.
