I just completed a gig that I am so disappointed with the outcome of. I feel discouraged and like walking away from what I was previously so passionate about.
The further I think about it I feel like I was retaliated against. I had a gig and was communication was good between the buyer and I. Expectations felt clear. The order included a free revision and when I submitted the order early today, I mentioned that I would be happy to promptly adjust as requested. The buyer marked order as complete and provided a substandard review, not providing the opportunity for me to revise. Although we agreed he’d be reviewing the order and providing feedback, his justification for the poor review included that I require reviewing.
Here is the twist. Last night he asked for an alternate form of communication, saying the word limit with messages was a hassle. I replied that if he had a creative idea other than email, phone or skype to let me know because all three are prohibited and I wasn’t willing to have my account closed.
I think it is obvious what happened at this point and want to know what I should do about it. This is only my second review and I am so down about the whole thing.
Any responses will be greatly appreciated!
