I think I may be about to take advantage of the blind review system to leave a scathing 1-star review of a buyer. The order is still in progress but… My God, it’s just a mess.
The buyer is a non-native English speaker who has ordered a home page and about page for their website. They are also a repeat buyer who I provided exactly the same work for 3-months ago. The original order included intensive keyword research and was (in my opinion) expertly curated to their needs.
Since then, they have seemingly engaged with several other writers to get the same job done, replacing their content every time. And it’s a mess.
Long-running sentences, irrelevant information, disclaimers everywhere saying what the business in question doesn’t do. The buyer has pretty much sent me a ton of all their past content to use for reference. Sadly, it all reads like a 3-year old wrote it.
Anyway, I work my magic and send through their delivery. Then comes a revision request. In this, the buyer has highlighted words they want replacing, disclaimers they want adding, and chunks of long-winded text which repeat the same (what they think are catchy sales pitches) over and over.
In short, they want we to rewrite everything like a long-winded, boring Wikipedia article. They even want a staggering 50-word headline for their homepage title.
They might as well just shoot their website. In this case, I’m really lost for words as to why some people order on Fiverr.
Anyway, I just wanted to rant.
