I just got my second strange request that had nothing to do with the service my gig advertises.
I’m still new, so I was very tempted to take the offer because… I need sales and ratings to level up…
buuuuut… I’m pretty sure this person was using google translate to communicate with me. Or not a native English writer at the very least. I guess what they wanted wasn’t as strange as there were aspects of what they wanted that I couldn’t perfectly understand. I can’t take a gig if I don’t understand the buyers needs thoroughly. Even if its nothing to do with what I’m selling, I’ll take a sale if I feel confident that I can do an excellent job.
Anyways, I’m sure there are plenty of interesting stories from sellers out there about getting asked to do things unrelated to your gig, maybe they were kinda strange too? Please do tell. It would be good for me to get an idea of what I can expect here.
The first message I ever got here was someone wanting me to make them an upwork profile, hahaha.
