Why we can't ask for feedback for work done by us? As we are working for client!

While we are working for client and after job sometime they said their experience and feedback in inbox but don’t provide review. Should we ask for review in such case?

While asking to review in order page there is threat for warning! As i received.

Do not manipulate buyers to provide positive feedback.

Buyer doesn’t have to leave a review. It’s up to them.

No, you should not ask for a review. Buyers do not need to be reminded to leave a review. They are already aware of that option since Fiverr reminds them to do so two times. It is also likely to cost you a warning.

Buyers are not obligated to leave you a review. They paid for your services, and you rendered them. That is all there is to your transaction. I will again say, as I have done before, that receiving a review is a privilege, not a right.

Thanks for reply. But if buyer give their feedback in inbox then why can’t ask to do same in order

I think fiverr have to ask (more time) to buyer for reviews as reminder.

It already asks them when they close the order. I don’t get why certain people insist on buyers leaving a review. Those who want to will, believe me. Those who don’t, honestly is usually for the better.

Forcing people or annoying them with requests for reviews, be it either the seller or Fiverr itself is a horrible idea, and will lead to reviews you don’t want to get. Better no review than a 4 star review. Or worse.

This is the saddest part in freelancing. however, we can not force them to leave a review as they paid for it. But there are some good buyer, who provides review willingly.

This is the saddest part in freelancing.

The saddest part of freelancing is not getting a review? And here I was, all this time, thinking it would be nightmare clients, or endless revisions, or cancelations, or bad reviews, or chargebacks, or no instructions/materials provided, or no clients at all for months. The more you know…

Good work needs appreciation or vise versa. However, asking review repeatedly is an offence.

I get it. I had this recent client who opened with how excited he was to work with me, repeated it multiple times through the process, then left the inbox message how it was fantastic, and wonderful, and it has made him cry (in a good way). And disappeared.

In this case (and only in this case), I’d appreciate a review. And a tip, to be honest, unless the tears of joy were supposed to be my bonus. If you take so much time to message me and express your feelings, maybe let’s make them public. I could benefit from that.

You just said above that “asking review repeatedly is an offence”.

I was clarifying - it doesn’t need to be repeated. You can’t even ask once.

lets give an example. Say you are on a restaurant to having lunch with you dear one, and waiter ask you to give feedback about the meal. what we will do? either say it was delicious or not good as i expected. However, if someone unwilling to leave a feedback then let it be. I am against of asking leave review, but i have the right to know the clients feeling about my work. that’s it.

When I submit the order, I also upload a thank you note with “Don’t forget to review” line in the bottom. That way I am not asking them to give me ‘Positive’ review only, I am just asking them to review it maybe +tive or -tive.

Don’t do that either, it’s dangerous. Don’t use the word review in any context, Fiverr hates it.

What I do when delivering is “Please let me know what you think!” and that’s it, totally neutral.

yes, the review can be either negative or positive. so no one should ask for a positive reviews. that’s it

I think this entire “let’s take our reviews from our buyers’ hands” movement operates under an assumption that the work that was done was worth 5* and that’s what the buyer would have left if they were reminded enough times.

Imagine the buyer actually wanted to leave 1* but then decided not to bother. It’s good news for everyone.

Ya, I see that Fiverr blocks it in chat section so nowadays I use “Let me know your thoughts” instead.

That’s what I’ve been saying since the beginning in this thread. If the buyer doesn’t leave a review on their own volition, I don’t want them to leave a review. It’s not good news.

Getting a great review after providing a service or product you worked hard on is satisfying. I can understand that it may be frustrating to not receive a review on something you worked hard on, but ultimately that shouldn’t be the most important thing. As far as I’m concerned the payment is what I need and anything else, such as a tip or review is a bonus. I’d definitely steer clear of asking for a review, even in a neutral way

Perfectly put. Ofc when you have no reviews, they are more important. At the stage I’m at, I’d much rather get a tip than a review lol

Want to see me motivated? Pay me. Nice words pay no bills.
