Some people are there who are real “shit” and dealing with such assholes can be a nightmare. I, myself is one of the “such peoples” . 😀 However, when i find another person who starts showing attitude i can’t stop myself from posting here. After all its my personal blog where i post my feelings.
Well, lets talk about the topic .. My reputed on the web is quite good as a “BOSS”. I pay my folks regularly … though i bargain a little with writers, i never trouble them with payment issues. As kris1911 i have gained heck of reputation on popular forum DP. However, i love to deal personally via emails rather than freelancer sites and forums. Recently, i logged in to Elance because i had heard lots of good things about it from fellow marketers. They seemed to be much happy with the quality of writers they found there and the escrow system of theirs help both party from getting screwed. I hate this system personally .. (just personal choice, though its good system) …
I had created account long ago but had never used it. So thought to give it a go ..! I posted a job and the features were super cool. I was allowed to invite 30 contractors and Elance suggested best ones for me (randomly) ..
In few hours i got around 20 proposals. Checking though them, i found super cool …There were writing ranging from USD5 to USD100 per hour. I was not much surprised to get a quote of USD100 for a 1000 words article ..as i had seen similar quote from quality writers in other forums. My target was to hire a $10 writer quality writer who is flexible, cool for long term ..I found few of them and was really happy working with them …
There was a girl named Tori Reid from Elance with username TheWritingCoach2012 with whom i asked her email address coz i found her rates good. 🙂 Since i prefer dealing personally via emails, i asked her if she is able to do business via email rather than taking elance escrow service .. She replied following :
Paypal is less secure therefore I do not like to. I will give it a shot with one article and see how it goes from there. My policy will be to write the articles and show you watermarked samples. Only when I receive payment will I send you the final copies. How does this sound?
That was perfectly fine with me. So i said ” watermark etc is fine with me. i will prefer paypal…”
She replied ” Okay. When would you like to get started?”
I replied “now .. 🙂 and sent detail of first article
She replied back saying “That will up the price to $12. Sorry. Is that ok?”
I said “ok .. make it perfect !!”
She said ”
