Hello, seasoned fiverr vets,
I’m a first-time fiverr buyer. I got 89 offers in the first few hours, “paused” my request, and whittled the offers down to about 10. I’ve asked each for a preliminary concept sketch or text description of how they might apply their skills that I like from their portfolio to my request. There’s some understandable reluctance to do any work without an order. My question is whether it is okay to solicit preliminary concepts through small orders ($10-20) so I can get a better idea of who understands what I am aiming for? I would pick one or more of those and execute a full order with revisions, etc. I would not ask for a refund on the sketches I turn down.
Thank you for any thoughts.
