That is the issue. Like I said, it only takes great determination and courage in knowing bad clients or customers and get rid of them. It not just a matter of keeping every client or customer that comes your way that you must keep.

Many business owners still believe that every customer is a good customer as long as they pay for the goods or services. This is not true. This thought of marketing and business operations is should be left out of the modern day marketing techniques, and should be a thought of the past.

The thing is that having a business relationship with bad customers or clients is akin to having a parasitic relationship, in this type of relationship these bad customers or clients suck your profits up. These bad customers or client do not only suck you up, they also waste most of your time, energy and resources.

Unfortunately, many business owners like you, spot these warning signs that a particular client or customer does not fit into your business but you ignore them. This is because you lack the will and caprice to turn down a customer or client whom you know that will not add any value to your business.

Instead of saying  NO to any bad customers or clients you end up taking up a business that wouldn’t yield any return. Most of the times, apart from taking up the business that wouldn’t yield return, the work generated often proves to be time-consuming and difficult or impossible to deliver on. On the long run, it goes on to draining both resources and profitability.

Interestingly, sometimes it pays to look past the lure of additional revenue and focus more on profit. You can start by dismissing the allegory that you should never say no to any customer.

Let me tell you the truth, once you know the bad customers or clients, the key is to subtly force these lead weight customers to either step up or move on. You can do this by always hiking the price of your goods or services.

What I mean is this; its takes carefully crafted price and product set ups that discourage the bad customers or clients. Once the price is very high, they will get lost.

You may not necessarily call them and tell them. I think the best option is just to get your identification process right and hike your pricing.

Additionally, though this might be optional. If you have gotten to know the bad customers or client, you have no option than to send them packing. Send them packing, identify your ‘bad’ customers and tell them politely that they will be better off getting your product or service elsewhere.

Start now to know bad clients or customers and get rid of them from your business. They are just parasites.
