My name is Gina. I’ve made many purchases on 5r using Buyer’s Request. In the past, I’ve found several great sellers for my translation and writing service.
Granted, there were always unqualified sellers who bid. The last time I placed a request, I thought I found a few good writers for my article. Unfortunately, I was dismayed because two of the three I hired LIED about their credentials on the bid.
Their bid was well written, their gig page was rather good but the end product was shockingly so poor - I’m not sure how to describe it.
I really like using buyer’s request and this is a great tool for buyers to filter through for nitch product without spending hours on gig pages. I know you have been doing many tweaks to make this site better for sellers. It would be great if you can enhance the BR section so that more professional, qualified sellers would bid - making the purchasing better experience for all.
Sometimes, buyers hand needs to be held and told what to write. The section should be redone and catered to categories where specific questions can be asked so the sellers are better able to define the buyer’s needs and their own qualifications.
If you can figure out a way to filter out the spam posters like you did with this forum, I have a feeling it will have a better feel and more sellers with qualifications will bid. That will lead to satisfied customers and happy sellers.
