I have been on Fiverr for almost 60 days now; the income is not sufficient to maintain my monthly bread and butter; I thought of doing freelancing in real life (like many others)… Facebook page, blah blah blah.
To cut the story short, I needed a logo and because I’m struggling with my budget. I thought I will ask for some designer to see what they have done in the past (those that were rejected by previous clients), to see if they have similar to similar what I want (businessman mascot / eye grabbing or shocking logo) that is suitable for a consultant… and I will just get that for ten after slapping the business name on it (and a colour change).
72 offers flooded me within a short time, and… guess what? none of them read my request properly, some of them were probably from the same person (with the same spelling errors)… and the only person who read what I wrote, did a “cut and paste” into their standard “can” offers.
I think to myself; I write individualised offers every single time… I know the buyer’s request works… I got orders from it. But it must be an unpleasant experience for the buyer, having to experience that flooding of a nuisance.
A little disheartened to see that my sincere “offer” went lost in the floods of copy-&-paste. #JustSaying
I guess I’m not unlucky; I am going Level One as soon as I hit day 60 (by a dollar). Unsure what the future holds, am still setting up plan C.
