As some of you will know I have been pretty active here over the last few months, like a man on a mission. I am. I want to help dispel the myths I see destroying this marketplace and in turn to better understand how they affect me as a seller, or more accurately as a living person with a family that needs feeding from the things I do.
This thread was part of the catalyst for the video below: I posted a buyer’s request for a logo… I’m shocked at the seller’s offer - Your Fiverr Experience / The Ranting Pot - Fiverr Community Forum
These videos are aimed at Musicians I encounter but apply equally to sellers (and buyers) here in all types of work categories.
The cover image tries to say it all as I show someone trying to shove their thing through a Retrowave shaped & colored window that isn’t a good fit. Because they have tried to color their thing exactly the same shade of Retrowave Pink to “fit in”, they have lost contrast or visibility in the market.
All that following the “should” rules that are mostly laid out by people who are not winning anyway, we tend to stop ourselves from connecting with and delivering the unique things that we were meant to do (you can argue over who meant what but that is irrelevant to getting the outcomes you and the world need).
