Can we please stop perpetuating this ridiculous notion that being online 24/7 is a good thing.
It’s not. It’s highly damaging for many reasons.
No human being is capable of functioning 24/7. We need sleep.
By using page refreshers etc to give the impression that you are active is fraudulent. You will be tricking potential buyers into contacting you.
If a potential buyer does contact you when you are asleep, then you will find your response rate will drop - meaning that over time your stat will fall so low that some people won’t even bother contacting you. Thus, you will destroy your own business.
What happens if someone orders a gig based on thinking you are online and active, but they require revisions? There could be a massive time gap between their request and you seeing it. This delay is guaranteed to annoy any client - potentially leading to poor feedback, that again could destroy your business.
But most important of all, you will destroy your own mental and physical health by trying to operate 24/7.
People, please stop trying to trick others into buying from you. It’s not fair. It’s not nice. It’s not good business practice. And ultimately it will be you who loses anyway.
