Cutting corners is the easy thing to do, it’s rarely the right thing to do. It has become so ingrained in our society that we sometimes do it without thinking of the outcome. It’s fine when you haggling over the price fruit in the market, but when you haggle over the price of a freelance’s work, you’re just being stupid.
There’s only so low a freelancer can go before his work suffers. The same goes for an Advertiser, an employee and the list is endless.
Google seems to have solved this issue, what they did with their pay-per-click campaigns doesn’t allow clients to haggle over their prices.You can pay less if you want but in return, you’re getting a lower placement and you’re showing up very rarely. This forces the client to think and reach into his pocket.
Why not do the same?If you want to haggle over the price fine, your project is on the back burner. When I’m not overbooked and I have some free time I’ll the work on your project. If you’re willing to pay my price you’ll get your project done on time, attention to detail and corrections as needed. Take the haggling out of the equation, you have enough on your plate as it is. The client gets what he paid for.
