It is an unfortunate thing, but we will all have to deal with a lowballing client at some point. What do you do when that happens? This great video discusses five tips that can help you deal with a lowballing client and possibly turn them into a paying customer.
Coming to you from Mike Wilhelm with Videomaker, this helpful video discusses five tips for dealing with lowballing clients (though it's oriented toward videographers, the tips apply just as well for photographers). We all have to deal with this sort of client throughout our careers, and I have found that quite a bit of the time, it has to do with a lack of understanding more than anything. Of course, there are always going to be potential clients who lowball you simply because they don't value what you do enough, and nothing you do will convince them otherwise, but a lot of clients do it not out of malicious intent but simply out of ignorance. With some careful education, I've found that they often come around and are happy to pay the proper price (and on the other hand, those who don't aren't worth my time anyway). Check out the video above for more of Wilhelm's tips.
