Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, we have to be the “bad guy” with our clients. My Onboarding, Implementation, and Offboarding Kits provide you with workflow canned emails that you can use to educate your client on the process and keep things moving through as smoothly as possible, but sometimes, clients just DON’T listen, and you’re left trying to work through sticky situations on your own.
Especially since these conversations can be emotionally charged, having an arsenal of “bad guy” email templates in your backpocket will help you maintain your composure, keep clear boundaries with your clients, AND give you the best chance at coming out of the scenario with a positive relationship with your clients.
At the end of the day, remember that YOU are ultimately in control of what you include and do on every single aspect of these setups. YOU are in control of how you respond to every single, and you NEVER HAVE TO SAY YES if it’s not something that you said you’d do in your contract.
When approaching sticky situations with my clients, I always trying to figure out what I *can* say “yes” to. So even if I can’t say yes to their specific request, maybe I can say “yes” if they pay an additional fee. Or maybe I’m not willing to do x, but I’m willing to do y. It’s all about figuring out what you ARE willing to do, that also helps your client.
I’ll get off my soapbox now, but these emails are curated to help you think through what you can say yes to in sticky situations, and they also help you when you can’t say “yes” at all, and you need to give a calm, professional, respectful NO! You can make it through this and anything else that comes your way!
25+ canned email templates that will help you navigate sticky situations with clients like a seasoned pro.
