Hi, I was just wondering if a gig offering to give an appraisal and expert opinion on somebody’s Children’s Picture Book idea would be a good gig. The trouble would be that 98% of the time I would be pointing out why it wasn’t going to work. Do people want to pay for bad news? I would offer solid advice on what to change, ( within reason and bearing in mind the $4.00 i would get ) how to approach such a project, but it probably won’t be what people want to hear but what they NEED to hear. But they wouldn’t know that and think I was being negative. . . Is it worth a try? What do you think? thanks, Jon
There are tons of Proofreading and Editing gigs on Fiverr. Have you checked them out for ideas?
Myself having spent 20+ years in voice over and on radio and tv, I’ve done a lot of writing for a wide variety clients and found that business people, doctors, lawyers, corporations, authors and other folks who want to grow and be successful are never opposed to hearing some “bad news”.
