    Okay so its about my newly launched service (MNS 2.0).

    The guy pays me. I send the keyword report... (EMD available, good CPC, good exact searches)

    After a few hours he emails me back that he doesn't want to target that keyword. When I asked the reason, here is what he said:

    LOL, people are looking to buy that item and this kid says its a waste of time...

    Here is what I told him:

    His reply:

    Then I sent him another extremely easy to rank keyword in that niche. It didn't have an EMD available but it was still easy to rank and had good CPC and exact searches.

    Now the sucker PMs me and says:

    How pathetic...

    I'm not a Keyword research guru but in a niche like plastic surgery, you don't find golden keywords like this. Even domains for keywords with 5-6 words are taken. LOL.

    I'm not being a cry baby because he stole two keywords from me. I don't give a shit... But what the heck people :D

    I did. Didn't want to waste my time with this stupid kid lol... Time's money for me.

    Good luck to him finding a keyword in weight loss niche with $20 CPC and 1 million searches a month. Oh and ofc, zero competition :rolleyes:

    Sorry to hear that. I'm currently working with a client on identifying requirements for his new website. He usually talks with me over Skype for 10 minutes without any problem. But if the conversation extends beyond that time frame, he starts telling me he can't talk and has to go and asks me to email him my thoughts instead. I still see him on Skype for hours after telling me he has to go! This has happened thrice now! Not only is it irritating but it's also insulting! Makes me feel like my skills are worth shit!

    I think this client has an ego problem since he's some big shot consultant, and probably treats everyone he works with like this. It's so damn irritating!

    From my experience, I've found out that Asians are the most difficult clients to deal with and also want things for dirt cheap rates (I'm an Asian myself!). The existing client I'm working with is an Asian as well living in the US. Never ever had problems with my American/European clients though. I love working for them.

    Yes these things happen man... unfortunately not everyone is cut out for IM and dont really get 99% of how it works...

    The sad part is he will prob leave a bad review and hurt your earnings even though you did your part of the deal... I have had the same experience with my service, and even after you deliver and refund on top of that (ranking them for free) some people will still come kick you in the nuts with a bad review, and unfortunately one bad review goes much further than ten good reviews... I am still trying to recover... I hope this does not happen to you

    First of all, you REFUNDED him after providing the service TWICE?? I'm working with someone right now on a report. I was not under the impression that you get refunds after them doing the service for you. That's crap. I would have politely told him to shove it.

    Also, when I gave up on ebay, I had a customer who tried to open a case on me, after I refunded her money and told her I wasn't going to send the product and she left negative feedback. How the hell do you open a case when the seller doesn't even have your money anymore??

    People are strange.

    I didn't provide the full service.
    Here is what I'm talking about: MNS 2.0 is the actual service. As a first step, I provided him the keywords with EMD available to register and he messed up lol.

    Again, I don't give a shit to two keywords but just wondering how low people go sometimes.

    That's a shame. Looks like a really good deal. If I had a site up and running with anything other than a landing page with email submit, I'd get a review copy.
