Recommended Posts

I’ve been trying to get a a website designed for 2 months now and you freelancers…LIE …LIE …LIE…AND MAKE IT REALLY HARD FOR US HARD WORKING INDIVIDUALS OUT HERE TO TRUST YOU!

Why isn’t “fiverr” screening these individuals more?

Fiverr needs to get involved more with helping “buyers” weed out the “deadbeats”.

I’ve wasted 2 months of my life just trying to get a website designed. This is crazy. I’m scared to book any work on this site because you “freelancers” lie!

Most of the more affordable ones, are from overseas and there’s like a 10 hour difference. When I’m sleeping they’re awake.

Is there any tricks or anyway to find “freelancers” that understand the importantance of “good communication”… and know how to be professional and courteous?

I feel like most of these people are “freelancers” because they cant cut it in the… “real world” and seem to be “very unprofessional”.

CAN SOME ONE HELP ME NAVIGATE THROUGH THE NONSENSE!

nd you freelancers…LIE …LIE …LIE

I would offer advice, but it would probably all be untrue.

You’ve hired quite a few sellers from Fiverr and several of them received 5-star reviews. That should be proof enough that not all sellers lie.

Hire a local agency then.

Time difference is never an issue if your seller knows how to manage a project. Besides, if you have provided detailed requirements then you shouldn’t need to contact your seller every few hours. One update per day or every few days should be enough. If it’s not then you or your seller isn’t communicating effectively.

Hiring the right people for the job is a skill. If you didn’t do your homework and ended up with sellers who were not up for the task, then maybe you should reconsider your budget or the interview process.

I’m sorry about your experience, friend. Maybe treating the buying experience on Fiverr in the same manner you would do it in person may be the solution for you. In the “real world” I buy website design and development a few times a week, and it can takes days or more before I find someone right for my project.

Or I’d look at it the way I buy on eBay: I look for reputable sellers with a verifiable track record, who answer questions thoughtfully and are proactive BEFORE I give them my money and business. It’s no different for me than conducting a job interview.
