Walking away from clients.

Posted on June 12, 2008 by admin | Leave a reply

At wednesday’s meeting we discussed the merits of walking away from Clients. It was very interesting to discover that the Members present, Sole traders through to the larger business, all were of the same opinion on this matter. Our business is the one in control and not the prospective customer/client. We as individuals decide who we want to do business with and how. The how being whether we credit check the potential client first (a resounding yes), put them on a 30 day account, ask for a deposit up front or just decide not to do business with them at all. The over whelming feeling was that it is far better to take a decision prior to commencement rather than to regret a decision further down the line. All of this considered it was agreed that it is still possible to make mistakes but more bearable when a system had been followed.

Have you had to walk away from a client? How did you deal with it?
