Bespoke -v- compromise. How much are you prepared to bend to your clients with bespoke offerings, or do you oblige them to do all the bending? If a compromise is involved, how does that suit you and your business?
In the Show…
Judith’s been without internet for three days with resultant frustrations slowing down her output this week and her ability to be with clients on Skype. Nicola describes the ups and downs of getting going with her new Write Club podcast, editing and artwork. They’ve recently interviewed a writer of erotica which prompts Judith to tell Nicola about the Bad Sex awards.
Focus of the Week
One of Nicola’s potential new clients has asked for something which she doesn’t think will work for either party, which prompts a discussion about how bespoke/responsive to clients should a business owner consider being. Given that Judith brought up this last week and here it is again, it is obviously the way clients are in 2017 and likely to increase going forward until they change again. Useful discussion enables both to realise that bespoke is great, compromise is not.
