How to Handle Difficult Client Situations

As business owners, freelancers, and working professionals, many of us are in contact with clients on a daily basis — and unfortunately, difficult situations between us do come up every so often.

Having a good idea of how to deal with these problems beforehand will make it easier to react when they occur. It’s important to figure out what your values are and what you are willing to do before setting out in the business world.


5 Ways to Add Value to Your Work as a Web Designer

Let’s face it… we’re in a day and age where someone can buy a domain, hosting, and install a premium WordPress theme in the same time that some designers take to respond with a job quote/request for proposal.

On top of that, many designers are attempting a race to the bottom by lowering rates and adding a myriad of services they wouldn’t have offered years prior.


This one’s going to be a treat for you web designers out there: P2H, the first PSD to HTML conversion service provider, has decided to provide up to three pages of their Hi-End Package markup, valued at $450.

For a chance to win, simply leave a comment stating how this service can help you and your desire for your project to be featured on a Six Revisions article.

This giveaway ends on October 13, 2010 after which the comments section on this post will be closed. We’ll use your email address to contact you if you win. The winners will be randomly selected and announced on a separate post. Please note that comments that don’t follow the instructions on how to participate (described above) may not be published.
