I recently posted up a few requests in four categories, I made sure that I was as descriptive as possible with the work, I made it very clear about the style I wanted to and the parameters of the work.
I knew I’d be recieving plenty of copy&paste responses and unrelated offers, but jeeze… across 4 requests, over 150+ offers, I read each one and went through at least half the gig galleries, I only found about 2-3 relevant offers. I’d blame this on the countless people telling new sellers to “send 10 buyer requests a day”, I think it just leads to desperate buyers throwing offers at anything.
I don’t think I’ll be posting requests again, I mean, I could’ve just kept flicking through the search pages myself. I was curious as to see what experience others may have had as buyers? Have you found what you were looking for? and do you have any tips on posting up the right request to filter the low-effort offers?
