“Why are you refusing to take my money?”
Was on a call this morning.
The guy showed up asking for help with his copy.
I felt a sense of disrespectfulness.
I could feel his sense of:
“I got the money, write for me.”
After asking him a few questions, I didn’t feel confident about taking him on as a client.
I said to him: “I don’t think I can help you.”
He said: “Why are you refusing to take my money?”
Here’s why I really turned him down:
1. If someone is disrespectful from the start, he is going to be a disrespectful client.
2. If someone is in a very saturated market with a very generic offer, and he is hoping for magic from your copy, RED FLAG.
Better clients make a better business.
