    Do you include revisions in your contract? You should allow for a set number of revisions. Remember to take the time to understand exactly what a client wants. It's about them, not you.

    If the client just outright rejects your ideas or productions - you still own them. Sell them to someone else Turn them into profits for yourself, haha.

    as they say...there are many fishes in the sea. If they don't like you're work, accept it. Just make sure that everything is clean between parties. And what Sneakyheathen said...you can sell it

    Yes. There are some clients who bluntly rejects what you do. You have to bear with that. Move on. Dont struggle explaining that you have done correctly. Understand what the mentality of the client and if he is not accepting, politely say that "Thank you. My apologies i couldnt get this done right. Would be great if you can let me know how you require and i will strive hard to make it perfect for free"

    This has worked for me many times and client usually has bought what he told he didnt like

    Getting a client is not easy nowadays and you cant miss them just like that imho

    I think it depends.But make sure you have understood what your customer really want.I mean that you should communicate with him efficiently before you do something for him.
    What you think is necessary doesn't mean the same to your customers.So communication is very important.As to some momus,maybe you can ask your colleague to deal with.
    Cooperation sometimes also plays a part.

    If its writing, post it somewhere you can earn a bit on it...if you don't own a site in the niche, then Hubpages, Associated Content, Squidoo, eHow, etc (citizenship rules apply on some of those for the money I believe) can all provide some passive income on the writing...

    if you own a site related to the content then either direct posting or use for article marketing...

    Or of course, post it up somewhere like constant content to potentially have someone buy from you.

    I actually prefer direct rejection over death-by-revision for writing contracts...less time is wasted on both sides many times rather than failing to meet the "client's vision" after a number of rewrites...I have a few standing contracts though, so my stance was different when I didn't .

    I will normally not take a project from someone that is too "artsy" anymore since they normally try to get you to "guess" at the vision of the project (writing or web) and for me results in too much pain.

    Another option is to put the article with a subset of the intro listed up for sale on NB marketplace if you are not going to use it with your client too.

    Best of luck.
    Cheers,
    James

    CLient satisfaction is must so I will design new layout or something new concept for him.

  8. client must concider revision. and you service provider has to tke half of the payment before doing the project so scams wont happen every now and then.

    The major consideration for on revision policy is the rate charged. At the lower rates, the articles should be accepted as is. Unless there are major quality issues. At they worst articles can also be bulk submitted or used on a blogspot etc.

    You need to produce good quality output for your client in order not to be rejected. It is not you who wasted your time, but you wasted their time hiring you for producing crap quality reports. Don't do it if you're not ready to produce good quality.
