Me: There’s two months to go before your site hosting is due for renewal. Can we meet up and discuss any changes you’d like? The renewal fee will be the same as last year. Naturally I’ll have to price additional work separately.
Me: We’ve a month before your site hosting falls due. I have time during next week to work on any changes you’d like to make.
Me: It’s just two weeks before your site renewal. Can you please get back to me with a suitable time for a meeting to discuss any further work? I have a few days spare midweek.
Me: It’s Tuesday. Hosting of your site will automatically cease this Friday. Please contact me.
Client: (late on Thursday night) I want three interactive galleries for these 140 [terrible] photographs, a Facebook presence and this video edited down to five minutes for inclusion on the site. It’ll also need some sort of audio for the video – it’s silent. This work MUST BE DONE by Monday because I’ve got an important meeting at 9.00. The renewal fee will be in your bank tomorrow.
This client and I no longer have a working relationship.
