Just earlier today someone contacted me about subtitling a video (40 min) in 24 hours, he was in a hurry, and I was a couple days without sales, so, YAY! right?
WRONG, I am busy with a transcription project and a large translation, both long-term, and there is no way I could do it in 24 hours in this schedule, in 48 maybe, in 72 for sure, but not in 24.
so, I apologized, said I couldn’t do it this time, asked him to keep me in mind for future projects and told him that if he favorited my gig I would give him a discount next time.
seeing as he did favorite my gig and sent me a smile emoticon I think it worked well.
What do you guys think? good? bad? run away to Canada and change my name to George?
how did I do?
