So I’m pretty sure I got off to a very rocky start here on Fiverr. There seems to be some kind of communication issue between myself and the buyer. And if it’s on me, I’d like to know so I can change it. I’d like to get opinions so that I know what to fix.
Here’s a few issues I’ve run into:
When a buyer purchases a gig but hasn’t given me all the information I need, I’ll message them with any questions but sometimes they won’t get back to me until after the due date is up, causing my “on time” percentage to go down.
What type of information do you request or questions do you ask a buyer when they are about to purchase a blog? I feel that they are just not giving me all the information and so I write a blog for them thinking that I did get all of the information, send it over and they tell me that’s not what they wanted at all. So my response is, it looks like I will have to rewrite completely so you will have to pay $5 for a revision. They are unwilling, so they pay for what they got and then leave me a bad review.
In-depth research. How in-depth are we talking? I’m thinking that if I have to pull information from a couple of different sites, re-word it and format it to make the perfect article, that’s means for a charge of in-depth research. It will take me about an hour to complete. I’m a pretty smart girl, I type 72 wpm, so I’m thinking that I’m charging the perfect price. The buyers don’t seem to see it that way. They really don’t want to pay for research. Unless I’m thinking that that’s research and it’s not? I’m assuming that $5 basically gets you a 500 word mostly just opinion based blog.
Please help! Thank you!
