    I've been freelancing for 10 years now. One thing I learned over the years is that communication with client (talking, persuading etc) is 60% of the job well done. So if they trust you and your skills, they will trust your output. Work must be sharp too of course.

    One trick I've used some times is to show them the worst option first and then keep "evolving" with different solutions until you reach your favorite one. Explain them why this one is better and, most important, give them time to think about it and to feel they are making the decision. After all, they are paying for the work so they want to have a strong opinion most of the times.

    It has a lot to do with psychology ;)

    Let me explain...I design 3 options. But I know 1 of them is the best and really want the customer to choose that 1.

    Most of the time they choose the worst 1 which really dissapoints me.

    Does any know of a way to persaude them to choose a certain 1 at least some of the time?
    The best design is always the one you get paid for!

    I stopped offering multiple versions up front. I offer only one solution and offer two revisions if they don't like the primary solution. And I take very detailed notes about the changes they'd like to see.

    I also walk them through the design decisions in phases (type, color, layout, info architecture), before presenting a mockup showing all the elements together.

    I've had good success with this approach.

    Happens all the time. I like to always explain which is my favourite option and why. Then, it's up to them to decide. I believe the brand (of piece) I'm working on is, utimately, theirs and THEY should feel comfortable working with it (not me). Even if the technical specs might not be be the best ones, later...
