Do you hate when the buyer ask you for revision , hate it a lot loool
Lol! I’m always a bit surprised to get a revision request, since I don’t offer any. If you offer them, you’ll get them, because buyers want to get their money’s worth …
Convert their revision requests to dollar. then you will love it !
additional revision additional money !
Why you don’t offer revision ,because you know buyers want to get their money’s worth!
What if they don’t like what you done ??
If it’s an error on my part then sure. However, if they suddenly want something different, or they made a mistake in the info they provided to me, then I charge.
It depends. I don’t hate revisions, because they mean that you can improve your delivery, and by doing so, making your buyer happy. I always offer one revision with every order - and this covers things like style, speed, etc. but only if the client has provided good instructions in the first place, and I wasn’t able to live up to those.
They do not cover script changes, or changes because of bad instructions.
If a buyer requests changes based on edits to the script or new instructions, etc. I’ll charge for a new session.
So I’m doing what @veniceart is saying, I’m converting the revision requests into dollars.
What I do hate is clients who need endless revisions. When you’re on version 47 of a voice-over and the “creative team” they have critiquing the VO (their mom, dad, office clerk, janitor, and the 5 slightly-nerdy startup-guys across the hall), you can get pretty exacerbated at times. But at least, then that order has gone from 15USD to 500 bucks!
What I see as a problem is that the revision button is available at all if the seller isn’t offering free revisions. The buyer should have to reach out to the seller and agree on a price before the revision button became available - or at least only be available for the set number of revisions you have included.
Some buyers abuse that button a lot, and for inexperienced sellers, that can quickly turn into a nightmare.
Oh Revisions, Revisions…
sometimes i work with clients, paying cheap and requesting revisions which i don’t provide for free and i mention this on all my gigs, that if you want to request an additional revision you have to add extra $ to the order, the thing is some of the clients think that even if it is mentioned in the gig’s description, they still have the right to request a revision.
sometimes i get threatened to modify the order or getting a bad rating, that’s why i cancel the order and give them the delivery for free just to avoid getting 1 star rating, then of course block them.
@samarart - I’m very careful to define my projects in detail before raising an offer. Like or not like isn’t a reason to cancel according to TOS. If I make a mistake, a revision isn’t really a problem … and I’m generous with my time.
You guys with the more creative gigs are in a bit of a bind with revisions … but still, so many offer unlimited revisions on very low priced gigs. Raise your prices and you’ll get fewer revision requests …
