I am a new seller on fiverr and my services are very cheap, always starting at around $5 or $10. I have gotten one order last month but am not getting anymore or very much attention. The other day I decided to see how someone else would edit my video for only $5 I wanted to see if it was way better or way worse than the quality of product I was offering for the same price. I sent the raw footage of a video I had already edited and then waited for my delivery.
The next day, I recieved my video and went to see what the seller had done. It was really really bad. The music was slow and boring which didn’t fit the video which was a compilation of cool parkour stunts. I had given the seller 4k footage and it was returned in what looked like about 420. The seller had told me he would include a number of effects including reversed clips and slow motion. None of these were included. He used the same 3 transitions in between every single clip throughout the 5 minute video. I would have to say the raw footage was better than the finished video.
After that experience, I was wondering if most $5 gigs are like that, which in that case, buyers would just ignore those gigs. Or was this just a bad gig that didn’t do a great job? If this is normal then i’m definitely going to raise my prices. Please let me know if this is normal or not.
