Something bizarre has happened to the type of customers coming my way since Christmas.
Before Christmas it was established businesses and normal enterprises. Since Christmas it is nothing but crypto trading gurus, snake oil product companies etc. I am turning away so much business because I can’t in good conscience work on these types of gigs that will mislead a customer somewhere down the line.
Instead a large part of what I am doing is giving high quality free advice, just to stop them from ordering an inappropriate gig for them and I’m getting zero benefit out of this.
In that time I’ve been promoted to level 2 - I’m not too cheap, maybe got a little fussier as I have other projects on, but how good would it be to have a non gig tip jar.
So if you give someone great advice which they respect, there is an easy, no hassle way of getting some reward for it.
Rather than the clunky - let me make a gig for you to tip me.
Does anyone else find themselves becoming a free advice service on here?
Tip jar outside of gigs on the profile? Yay or nay?
