Buyer asks for samples but I don't have any... what do I do?

I have a buyer interested in purchasing my gig (proofreading gig) and is asking for samples. I don’t have any samples because he/she will be the first person who is purchasing my gig. I told the buyer I don’t have any samples. What should I do?

Should I proofread a writing I find online (for example) just to show the buyer. Need some ideas… Very Urgent!!

If your buyer needs you to proofread a larger piece, perhaps you can proofread a small section of it as a paid sample?

Well, the buyer wants me to proofread 1000 words. So…

In that case, since I assume you need that order and the potential review, you can find a short text online and proofread it. There are many free proofreading tests that offer texts for practice instead of just sentences.


Great Idea! Thank You :smile:
