It can be tempting to take every job that’s offered, but you’re better off making sure you will have a good working relationship.
Freelancers don’t just have to take work because it’s in front of them,they can screen and evaluate clients to see if it’s the type of work they want to be known for and the client understands and values their expertise.– Paul Jarvis.
Caginess about budget can indicate that a client doesn’t value the work or hasn’t budgeted adequately for it.
Poinier says the single most important question to ask prospects is whether they’ve worked with freelancers before, and if so, how that experience went.
Ask about budget, their accounts payable process, and any other processes/details about money–if they don’t know, tell them you need to know.
