I used to like math.....not so much anymore! The crazy power of a single person's subjective opinion!


I've actually never liked math... Smiley Very Happy I wish I did, or at least had even a remedial handle on it, but alas...no. (True story: One night when my oldest son was in the 5th grade, I called my sister, a math whiz, for homework help for him. My son and I were both crying when I made the call. LOL.)

 

However, the power of people's opinions is a real thing when it comes to selling anything, including freelance services. While all feedback services are imperfect in some way or other, the world of selling products or services has become extremely transparent. We have Yelp, Amazon, Facebook reviews, etc. So that's going to be true anywhere you go. It's not just here.

 

And on the flip side, you can't really hide from reviews by going solo in this regard (generally) because many, if not most, people won't trust first-party controlled reviews - for example, on an individual's own website. Not unless you're a gigantic brand that people already know.

 

Any business or brand, anywhere, can suffer a very negative review. Like any brand, you have to have loads of reviews before the occasional bad one is absorbed and has minimal, if any (appreciable), impact.

 

The days of selling Snake Oil in Deadwood and then moving anonymously onto Deerlick Springs and selling more are pretty much over for good. Smiley Very Happy

How can I close the contracts that I have been paid for but the client didn't close them. This affects my success score and it's not correct

You advertise yourself a writer, but I'm sorry to say, I don't quite get what your question is. Do you have any questions on how it works? 

You might be setting yourself up for more bad feedback as you are clearly not a native speaker as you claim, but the bad feedback you have is almost funny, considering it came from a client looking for a grammar-free writer. Some jobs are just short and sweet, eh?

Not unless you were top rated.

With so few contracts every one has a significant effect, so a few more good ones and you'll be above 90% again.
