Getting really sick and tired of fishbowlers omitting a in their posts over and over again. Trying not to get discouraged and jaded but I feel like I more than they do. Anyone else this way?

That is what I'm here for. Joking aside, I feel this way as well at times but consider this: their tendency to make mistakes and not learn from them is the reason you have a job.

Small business marketers, what's your client churn rate?

At my agency, we allot for a 5% book loss per month. Meaning if my 40 clients pay a grand total of $100k/mo, we expect to lose about $5k/mo and make up the deficit with new business.

This seems insanely high to me.

Is it?
