Okay Today I had a Fairly Bad Experience my first one on Fiverr! I joined Fiverr around the 13th of This Month , And I’ve made 9 Sales Already and Got Awesome 5 Stars Reviews for my work , even got a tip! But to give you some short insight before continuing , I am a Songwriter , I’ve taken classes just for this profession! I have 5 almost 6 Years Experience writing Lyrics in all Genres , I completed over 200 Songs alone in 2015 for Myself and clients. I’ve received maybe 3 Negative comments / Reviews in my 5 Years
(NOT ON FIVERR) And it was due to bad communication on the buyers part. I have 2 Indie awards for Songwriting its not only my job but my passion! I have established a name for myself in Ohio and with my client’s!
Well Here’s what happened today , So I received a message from a woman (I will not say her name) And she started the conversation out in a decent manner , Asking me to write her a Song About Empowered women and Them Being in charge now. I had no problem doing so and also told her this was an amazing idea. So she said " I want 3 Verses , Bridges and 8 Lines in each Verse and bridge." She also asked for an additional services. She wanted this all for $5 and completed in 24hours. And I began to explain to her that my $5 Gig Included a full Verse (Sometimes I write a single Verse that exceeds 2 minutes long if asked for) , My Gig Extras include , Hook & Verse $10 and a Full Custom Song for $15. For my skill set this price is very very reasonable and my past 4 Clients on Fiverr were shocked I was charging so low for The quality of work I provide. I think my prices are very reasonable due to my Experience level and the amount of detail I put into my work but anyways She proceeded to tell me , " I can get a full song with Radio quality Lyrics and the ownership to them for $5" I simple told her My Lyrics and Songwriting skills are of Top Notch and my prices are very reasonable , she proceeded to tell me that Even though I am talented with my skills She wants the work done for $5. I offered to do the full song for $15 and Give her free promotion , (I include Copywrite ownership in my $5 Gig , if I write you any type of Lyrics you own them even the $5 gig) she Continued to try to put me down and Force me to lower my prices when my Gig Clearly states my Gig prices for each type of Lyrics and services provided. I nicely told her if she can find a Songwriter that is willing to do that work for $5 Then I recommend buying from them and told her have a very nice day.
Was I wrong for not lowering my prices and meeting her needs? As stated before I’ve taken paid courses and have multiple Years Experience along with Awards and Hundreds of sales outside of Fiverr , My prices are very reasonable! But still I feel like I did something wrong? Please tell me if I was right to stand my ground and be nice or if I should have lowered them for her!
