I see people complaining everyday about no sales, how to rank on 1st page, people buying reviews, asking for reviews, etc.
They ignore sound advice by people with a history of experience and want a quick solution.
I get the feeling that those seeking a “trick” are typically looking at freelancing as easy money. What they don’t know is freelancing is one of the hardest things you can do.
As a freelancer, you are responsible for everything, including customer service. We, as humans, are the hardest to deal with.
I don’t sell on 5r or any platform because I do not have the time to dedicate to gig or the annoying buyers that comes along with it.
Every person who complains about not having sales have awful gigs, terrible writing skills, gig page full of errors, and/or spelling, punctuation, overall grammar, etc.
99% of newbies won’t read this. They will create a dozen new threads, today alone, about not ranking or no sales.
1% will read this and hopefully will ask a logical question which will be refreshing.
I hate dealing with people, so only freelancing I’ll ever do is blogging and ebooks. I will keep other freelancer gainfully employed by buying services, though.
