I’ve had an amazing few months with Fiverr in terms of earnings, and 95 percent of my clients are great, but I’ve been thinking about closing up shop.
Lately I’ve had an array of less-than-pleasant experiences with buyers, culminating in the latest…my first three-star review, from someone who complained that it had taken me a while to deliver his order (despite the fact that I had delivered it before deadline, he hadn’t told me that he was in a rush, and he hadn’t purchased my gig extra for 24-hour delivery).
I don’t really care about the review so much, as I have more than enough five-star reviews to cover for it (and I think I responded to it in a way that actually turns the review to my advantage), but I’m wondering if the aggravation of dealing with people who see the review system as a way to go on a power trip over a $15 order is worth it,
Between Fiverr and my part-time job, I’m working 60 hours a week, and while I’ve met and worked with some great people here, I’m not sure if the occasional aggravation over ridiculous grievances from clients is worth the four dollars I earn from it.
Anyone have thoughts, pep talks, etc.? I’m a little bummed and exhausted right now.
