Hi, I joined recently and in searching gigs for illustrators noticed that most sellers ask you to contact them before placing an order so they can correspond with you regarding what you want. No problem, I prefer it that way, myself. So, I sent a message to various sellers whose services I was interested in. One seller never responded at all, despite having sent him a second message.
The other sellers did reply to my initial inquiry, asking for more details about what I was requesting. I sent a fuller explanation (it was long, perhaps that was the problem) so I could detail for them what I was hoping to get and make it as clear and easy for them as possible.
Only one responded back. So that’s 5 sellers I have contacted with only 1 actually communicating with me.
What’s the deal? This is my first experience with Fiverr and it’s so different from what I was expecting. I guess I’m lucky to have found one responsible seller, but what I am offering is an ongoing project – so basically, part time work for years to come.
I am thinking that part of the problem is the language barrier. I would be glad to use a service like an online translator if that made my words clearer to the sellers, but none have even bothered to ask. It’s pretty discouraging. I just wonder if this is typical or if I’ve just had
a very unusual experience. Any suggestions? Thanks.
