If you asked someone who works in web design what the hardest part of their job is, it’s likely that most of them will say “working with clients”. Whilst some clients are great – they’re organized, they’re always on time for meetings and delivering information – others leave web designers with considerably less hair and sleep at the end of a project. It can, however, help to be prepared to deal with bad clients and, by looking out for these red flags, you can ensure that you know exactly what’s coming:

  • “Can we make this a little cheaper?”
    This is one of the most common indicators that you have a bad client on your hands, as someone who wants you to lower your prices does not respect, understand or value web design work in the slightest. You should also be wary of clients who don’t want to pay a deposit before work on their project begins and who want you to sign a payment clause (one that, for example, requires their website to receive X amount of traffic for you to get paid the final sum).
  • “I need it done yesterday”
    After clients who want to tamper with your prices, the second most common indicator of a bad client is one who demands that a project be finished yesterday.
