Disappointing experience outsourcing writers on Fiverr
So basically I tried to outsource my content by looking for writers on Fiverr. I decided to give it a try and if I were to come across a good writer, I might hire him/her.
I needed a 1500 product review article and I found one writer with decent reviews that offers the same service for only $5! I was obviously skeptical at first and this sounds too good to be true. I also looked at the country the writer is from which happens to be Pakistan and I know there are good Pakistani writers out there that sells their service for dirt cheap so I decided to give it a go.
Provided him with clear and easy to follow instructions such as using the word "I" a lot and even provided the relevant links for each product so that he can refer to it.
My expectations were not high but I was still disappointed because how can a writer be this awful??? So basically my topic was on Inversion Tables and I did clearly mentioned that in my order.
When I received the article, it literally gave me cancer. Just look at this.
" Ironman Gravity 4000 is a Top rated, best inversion table, built with a long-lasting tubular steel scratch resistant frame.Ironman Gravity 4000 inversion table provides so much comfortable to users.
Head and back to 2.5 inches thick, large Memory foam vinyl covered backrest. It has long vinyl-coated safety handles for easy return to the upright position safely and non-skid tough rubber floor stabilizers for the stability of inversion table when inverting. Also able to fold Ironman Gravity 4000, When not in use.Long lasting tubular steel frame, supports up to 350 pounds 2.5 inches thick large Memory foam vinyl covered backrest for more comfort.Extra lower back support with a removable lumbar pillow Adjustable ankle locking system, non-skid tough rubber floor stabilizers Invert up to 180 degrees. "
This is just part of the product review that I copy and pasted here to show you guys. Obviously, the "writer" copy and paste the features of the product and dump them all in a sentence. It's literally so bad.
I then read the 4th product and remember, the topic is on Inversion Tables, nothing else. This is what I got.
" The folding x frame design from exerpeutic Fitness makes it very easy to get on and off the bike giving you a more fun and effective exercise experience.The three-piece high torque cranking system provides a reliableand consistent pedaling motion.The precision balanced flywheel and V belt drive provide a smooth and quiet operation you can watch TV or listen to music while working out with no interference and more if you're watching TV there is even a place to put your remote control or any other accessory you want to keep close by while exercising the larger pedal design with adjustable safety straps will prevent any foot slippage . "
He clearly did not refer to the product link that I gave him and since when did Inversion Tables have a bike??? I was so confused reading this because it wasnt what I asked for at all.
I then left a review saying it wasn't good despite the fast delivery and he decided to offer me a FREE 500-word article on ANY topic and that I can contact Fiverr Support to change my reviews. Nope, not happening.
The bottom line is: you get what you pay for AND if something sounds too good to be true, don't go for it if it does not have enough credibility. Plus, reviews on Fiverr are not genuine, most of the time. I tend to find that if you criticize the work of the seller, they will try whatever means necessary to get perfect reviews.
