I’m in the middle of launching a new brand. I needed some logo work done quickly. i reached out to to a few designers.
I hired the first one with an extra fee tacked on for 24 hour service. It took him 72 hours to get me something not even close to what i was requesting. I’m out of time. I needed it fast. he said he could get me something else withing 7 days. He begged for me to not cancel the order. I dont have the time to waste for someone that couldn’t listen to a simple description and then go and do something completely different from what was asked. this person had 700 reviews and a 5 star rating. Had it refunded.
Went to someone else. same situation. process was pleasant. got me the exact thing i was looking for after a couple of small revisions. only delivered half of the images promised in the order. it’s been 3 days of me sending very nice (until just now) messages looking for the rest of my order with no response. All this from another 500+ reviewed 5 star person.
Now im about to cancel my second order in as many weeks and all i have to show for it is wasted time and now lost money as this has delayed my launch. What good is a rating system when even the top tier rated folks wont do what they advertise? I want to support independent artists and freelance workers, but my trust in them only goes so far after so many letdowns.
is there a gig on here that gives you unearned 5 star ratings on fiverr or something?
