It's absolutely the same with copywriting and content writing. Lowest budgets = highest maintenance clients. Lowest budgets = don't recognize, understand, or care about high quality work and how it will give them a high ROI. When bidding for content jobs, I'll occasionally run up against someone who asks why I charge so much, since they can get the same thing for $5; why do I charge 100 times as much? I just pretty much smile nicely, thank them for the inquiry, and tell them unfortunately we're not the right fit. It is a total waste of time to try to educate prospects like these on the value of what you do; don't even bother.
