Maybe it’s just me - but I’m taking on the attitude of I’m not here to please Fiverr; I’m here to please my clients (and myself). Fiver will do Fiverr; I’ll worry about the clients and myself. I can’t change what they’ve done. I think the monthly evaluations are a motivator for a minute number of people but a demotivator for most others.
I do think it’ll weed out those who underperform for their own fault, but I also feel it penalizes some awesome sellers. It falls in line with the old saying, “one bad apple spoils a bunch.” Here, it’s a handful of them hurting the rest of the great sellers because Fiverr wanted to change its image to become a more “professional” site.
Sucks, but it’s their site.
I may pop in here each month and say, “Yeah, I kept the TRS badge or I was demoted.” But, the reality of it is this - I can’t change Fiverr, but I CAN change me. The only thing I really lose if I LOSE the TRS status is the ability to withdraw on a weekly basis. I’m not going to lie - that’s a great perk. However, if I have to go every two weeks, I’m getting paid at the local school like that. No real skin off my nose.
I don’t think my Level dictates how prospective buyers see me - only one felt I should have been a TRS way back when they first were announced. I was promoted in Feb. 2015. Prospective buyers are going to see my reviews and KNOW that I’m more than just a level - be it seller, level 1, level 2 or TRS.
That’s just my two cents. Sorry for the long post. It’s time to get to work. I’ve got to get 8 articles done today, take a child to a birthday party, clean the house for two of his friends to spend the night (both boys I’ve known since they were at the other school I was at; one still attends my school) and a host of other things.
BRING IT ON!
