So as you can see it has been more than 2 years that i started this topic.
As the time went by, i honestly had less and less of these problems with clients.
If a client asks for a demo on a small script, i usually refuse and send them my demo.
But for larger scripts like audiobooks for example, i give them a free sample read from their scripts.
I think that is part of the business.
Anyway, i think it is important to be really carefull when receiving such a demand.
Now i simply tell them they have to add the commercial use to their order and i copy/paste a sample of the fiverr tos that explain it.
Either they accept (which often happens) and we’re cool, either they don’t and i don’t feel bad about cancelling the order anymore.
And i don’t bother with the watermark anymore either
What i regular see nowadays is people buying my gig without having the appropriate budget.
Once again, i stopped feeling bad about cancelling those kind of orders.
What would the butcher say if you come for a 1kg of meat but you only have half of the budget ?
I think we all know the answer
But i have one more question for you
What do you think about e-learning scripts ?
I often have buyers that tell me they don’t need commercial use because it’s an e-learning.
But my point is that there are numerous e-learning courses on line that are sold and could be considered as a business.
But it could also be a corporate e-learning that will be for internal use only and wont be commercialised…
I hope my words are clear…
What do you think about this ?
Do you charge the commercial use extra for e-learning projects ?
Thank you a lot
And please don’t let people take advantage of your work.
We should run our businesses like all businessman/woman do !
