Seller and Buyer

Hello everyone, how are you? I hope we are all fine :slight_smile:

I see a buyer request and I offer my services. He contacted me and asked for an example using his photo. He said to be able to choose the right artist to get paid.

Then I told the buyer that I didn’t give an example with the photo I wanted to work on. I have set up a portfolio and you can see it here (LINK).

Then he says “I just want to find the right artist” if you don’t want to, just say don’t want and don’t ramble.
:roll_eyes:
I just say “Good luck to finding the artist you want”

ASK: What would you guys do if you meet a buyer like this?

Obviously you did the right thing but to be sincere if it were me I’d jump at the offer cause right now I don’t know when the next order is coming and buyer’s request which gives me hope is now seller’s request so like I said I’d jump at the offer

I’d do the same as you. He was a scammer. He was never going to order from you even if you embossed his image onto a solid gold slab and mailed it to him free of charge.

I would do the same as you. Your portfolio and reviews speak for themselves. You were absolutely right.

You did right. He was looking for someone desperate enough to do it for free.

I agree with the way you handled it. He was looking for free work.

I agree with the others in this thread. If a buyer likes your gallery of work, they will hire you. The only reason that buyer (that you noted in this topic) wanted to see an “example using his photo”, is that he wanted to cheat you and get you to give away your work for free.

Your work has value. Don’t be afraid to enforce the fact that people need to pay for it. :slight_smile:

I’ve been in your boots couple of times and also I reacted the same way you did.
Like others, I also believe the only intention of that person was to rip off your work without wanting to pay. Work will come in your way and even if it doesn’t still I won’t let myself being cheated.
You did the right thing :slight_smile:

Recently I got contacted by a buyer with his design description and asked me to show him my idea for the design. I told him politely that I don’t have any ready made idea for any design. I have to generate idea for a specific design which may take even a day or more. I requested him to visit my gig portfolio where he could find some of my work samples. (in fact, I’m not that kind of expert to design a logo in an hour.):sob:

and yes, I got the order after three days.

You did the right thing. If he is a real buyer, he may come back. Best of luck.

Your English is good in this post. I see improvement. You must be working hard on it.

I read all the replies above, and I see all agree with what I do :slight_smile:

Actually, I have another problem with that person. Maybe he read this post and left me a message that says “If you become a buyer, you will definitely do the same to get a satisfactory result”
:open_mouth:
I ignore the chatter :stuck_out_tongue:

Hope this is the first and last, and hopefully, in the future I get a serious buyer as before :wink:

Thank you Vickie :slight_smile: I will

Yes, ignore his chatter. He is trying to talk you into giving him what he wants, which is free work. If he contacted you again, it is because he likes your work and hopes to change your mind to give him a free sample.

Right. If he likes what I do. He will order and give an explanation of what he wants.

you absolutely did the right thing.
your portfolio should be enough for the buyer to see your style and ability.
you missed a bullet there:)

Just ignore such persons because they want one of two things from you. Either a free design or a design idea so they can do it according to your ideas from your creativity.

Stay away from such buyers.
