Yes, it is urgent. I posted BR request ( I KNOW!!) and I CLEARLY wrote:
a) do not send me messages in the inbox
b) my budget is flexible, please put your own price for this task/service (I put 50$ as starting price)
c) do not send an offer without reading the entire client brief
Usually, my BR takes a day to approve, but this time it was approved in a minute so I got notifications blasting in the right corner of my monitor.
I just got 50 offers, none of them read my client brief.
How do I know? They are sending offers of 5$ and it is a minimum 8 hours of work if you know Photoshop and Google search (I even provided links to reference files and videos).
Tell me should I accept those 5$ offers and get my work done cheap (LOL, probably not gonna deliver, but hey) or should I ignore them?
So far 10 people sent me identical messages just changed their profile name at the end, so it is a template response.
Seller in me is sad, I DID MY PART, DIDN’T I? I sent specifics and wrote a note PUT YOUR PRICE, my budget is flexible.
but the buyer in me wants to buy from 7 of them for 5$, worst-case scenario none of them delivers and I get my money back. In best-case scenario I get 7× of stuff for my original BASIC STARTING POINT budget.
This is the offer that made me consider accepting it.
I am also getting messages in inbox… ah…
But, also eventually they will read my brief, realize how much needs to be done, and most likely cancel.
So, what to do?
Oh, and BTW none of the offers so far are from “normal” sellers.
By normal I mean:
a) read my request
b) read my PDF attached
c) sent detailed offer with listing what is included
