I wrote a 4,600-word article for 5 dollars, at least it was a fun topic! I had an unpleasant exchange with a potential “buyer”… and I am sensing “trouble” even before the order becomes official.
I had spent 9 hours doing a “personal consult” on his problems, and he didn’t understand so much (and I don’t blame him). He keeps undercutting my skill-set and when I told him that he needs a new website because it takes 27 seconds to load his website, in his country… and told him the problems with his bootstrap website “coding”.
I told him to go with someone more experienced with WordPress and SEO, and all that. And he always comes back to say he will be contacting “a few” of those $ 10 WordPress web developers. I am not saying that those developers suck but I feel that he is not serious about creating something good. I know, I wrote some article with lots of words for 5 dollars… so some sellers might be desperate enough to create something decent for positive reviews as I did.
It rounds back to him telling me that I charge too much for what I do. I am already committing to 2 hours a day for 35 days for just $200… I might just tell him that I won’t be doing his work. (And it will be 49 days before I can get it, and that’s only if he don’t dispute at the CS. He was telling me how he disputed someone because they didn’t deliver.)
300USD advertising budget to achieve what he wants needs a little bit of miracle.
I want to hit my $400 within 60 days, and only 1/4 of it… and 30 days into the level 1 criteria. Don’t mind me… just unhappy.
