I have almost snapped yesterday.
I’ve been getting many buyers ordering my largest packages, with a lot of extras, plus purchasing the “1-day” delivery option. It’s really difficult to do such large orders in just 1-day, especially, since those require a significant amount of work and some going back and forth with the client. Setting up the social media pages for them requires two-step verifications, identity verification, and whatnot). Not to mention, that I should design the banners - and then wait for their approval. And at the end, when everything is ready and approved - I have like 2 to 4 hours to complete the order. Usually, that’s after midnight in my time zone.
Luckily, all of the clients were understanding and they accepted a short extension of 1-day. However, that isn’t a solution to this. As I still stay up to 2 AM to finish the packages, make spreadsheets with the passwords and usernames, a zip library with the designs organized, etc. Yesterday, it took me almost 4 AM to finalize two similar orders.
I’ve been getting a lot of headaches, I am nervous and I don’t even have the power to do my daily cycling or walking tours.
I decided today to double my prices on both of my gigs.
