3 Things you can do when a Client doesn’t pay

Some of us would find this familiar: you submit an article but when it comes to pay time, the client mysteriously disappears. So what can you do?

1.         Tell the website to take down your article

Inform the website that has published your article to remove it as soon as possible as you have not been paid. Although this does not work all the time, it’s still worth a try.

2.         Broadcast on Social Media

Use your social media platforms to broadcast that you’ve been cheated of your payment. Name the culprit and any social media accounts related to him. You may not get your money back but it sure feels good to get even.

3.         Ask for help

Ask your friends and family what to do? Has this happened to anyone you know? What did they do? Is there an authority that you can approach for help?

If you were contacted by the client through a freelance writing website offering jobs, approach this website for help. I’m sure you’re not the first one or the last to do so.

These measures may not help you to get back your money but at least you are actively doing something. At the end of the day, you may even feel better.
