Yesterday, I delivered another proofreading order. I was proud of my work, and relieved that I’d delivered it, but I wasn’t expecting anything special. Today, I found out that not only had the buyer accepted the order and given me a 5 star review, but he also gave me a $100 tip on top of the $150 order! This was an amazing surprise, and I’m really grateful—I’d been working hard on the order for a month, so it was great to get recognition for my work.
So, here are the key points that led me to get this bonus $100:
- I delivered early (but not too early). By planning ahead and scheduling, I knew I’d complete this order within the 30 days I had to do it.
- It was a big project, and I went above and beyond to satisfy the buyer by providing high-quality work.
- I communicated in a friendly but professional way with the buyer to ensure he was clear on what services I would be providing.
If you’re hoping to get a tip like this one day, good luck! Hopefully, if you do all of these things, you’ll be lucky enough to receive one soon.
