When you start a new freelancing gig, find out what kind of work the client has been displeased with in the past. WorkAwesome suggests:
...ask new clients if there are things that others have done that they were dissatisfied with. They won't always volunteer this and may have a hard time articulating it. But they will probably come up with just a little to get you started.
Equipped with this info, you'll have a better idea of how to tailor your work to their needs. This works well if you're competing against multiple freelancers for a job, but it also just ensures you fully deliver, even if you're the only freelancer.
