Q1: How often do buyers request a revision?
Rarely. The last few I talked out of, the few before that I had an evil color coded revision scheme (NB: only for the ‘you obviously can’t speak English’ brigade’) and, er, well, let’s just say that anyone who has ever asked for revisions will get them ASAP if they’re pleasant about it, or I’m going to drag it on for months otherwise. Very easy chaps: work with me, not against me.
Q2: How often do clients ask for cancellation and do you find that seller/buyer or just buyer ask for cancellation more often?
The ones who request cancellation are usually the non-native speakers who get my color-coded revision request from H-ell [why is this word censored?]. That’s post-work. My last cancellation was a few days ago: someone sent me $500 to make them a website on my SEO website copywriting. I noticed immediately, told them, they took a prod and 24 hours to say ‘plz cancel’. plz b. It took every ounce of nice in me not to chew them out. First cancellation this year, my stats affected, voller arschloch.
IDK, I am noping everyone in my inbox at the moment. I don’t even read them. I am planning an 'accept everything month starting in a week or so, so stay tuned for my pain and misery. The annoying ones shall get a price spiralling up, up, up. Mind you, it’s mostly spam so no rugrats ignoring my inbox bur for stupid metric points. plz, gamification of the workplace is uncool Fiverr. Don’t think I don’t see what you do.
Honestly, I have no real complaints. Aside from the cancellation last week it’s pretty calm. I’m sure there have been problems but I just forget them after a couple of days. People seem to respect me more, and I’m happy to work hard and deliver more than advertised. Everyone’s happy, except the Bad Ones.
Overall I’m pretty happy I guess. 99% of my price and customer behavior is, I’m pretty sure, down to how people view me and my position. I have tried to pick up my game massively to match my own expectations of what any job should be worth from my end, as that’s the only thing I know how to live up to. Seems to work. (I have crazy high expectations, which is useful)
Anyone who tells me I am obviously not a native speaker of English and a scam goes straight into the village communal bucket on diarrhoea day.
