Working with people is not as easy as it seems. All sorts of people come out to you and seek something. Maybe they’ve had a rough day, maybe they just needed to talk to someone, and you need to please all of their needs. And they want that fast. Sometimes, even your smile bothers them. If you work in advertising, in particular, you know what it’s like when a bad client comes along. Luckily, the staff of Coplex, which is s a Startup Studio, a twist on the traditional Startup Accelerator, have made a handy and hilarious guide on how to deal with them. The team has been observing clients in their natural habitat for a long period, and they’ve created this amazing guide to let you know how to approach different temperamental species.
The guide has identified 15 specimens most agencies have probably come across. It does not only tell you what you already know about them, but includes something else, too. Special ‘care and feeding’ instructions are provided, which makes it easier to tame these people in the shortest period of time. Here is the Field Guide to the Wonderful World of Clients that you can consult with whenever you are in need. Be prepared for the next time someone walks into your room looking like they’ve had the worst day.
