I had contact with a possible client who asked me to design something for her.

Her first email included lots of emoticons. She ended by asking:

Client: So what is the minimal [sic] you would like to receive for this?

I explained the process and my normal prices. Given the situation, I was willing to propose a very. VERY reasonable price. I also mentioned that I’m currently busy handling all kinds of projects and commissions but that I’d happily check what’s possible, and that I’d have to charge a rush fee if the deadline was as near as her first email suggested.

I hear nothing for two weeks, so I send out a friendly reminder. 

Client: Oh I’m sorry, but we have calculated our budget and [sad story] :( so X is a lot of money for us. Can’t you do it for Y [about 55% of X] and lots of love, hugs and eternal gratitude ;)

I declined her offer of doing it for half of what was already a very low rate.

 

Want to know if freelancing is for you?
