It makes me laugh when I see a Buyer Request that includes something like “Must have proven track record in acquiring ROI and get × amount of sales” and their budget is $25.
Yes, someone who builds that kind of value will give it to you for $25. Riiiiight.
And then they wonder why they don’t get qualified responses and results.
These are the buyers to avoid because they are really unreasonable and constantly go out of scope. So when you look at all the nonsense you’d have to deal with on top of providing big value for peanuts, you’re actually making even less than peanuts.
This is why I search certain terms in Buyer Requests instead of manually scrolling through them all. It is a waste of time to scroll through hundreds of entitled, poorly paying buyers.
