“No one likes leaving a negative review. I believe if you can keep Jim focused on your project, he knows his stuff and is very gregarious. Although my first review for Jim was good, I must say I turned a blind eye to the fact the material was sent to me with serious delays. I had hoped the positive review would trigger a positive action. I was wrong.
Let me get to the point. After waiting 2 weeks and multiple emails apologizing for the delay I received this final email from Jim:
"I'm sorry for the delays. But honestly, this is taking up too much time for $35 an article. Considering how much time I have invested already, I'd need to charge more like $1500 to make it worth it. When I initially responded to your eLance listing, I was under the impression you were looking for casual, occasional contributions. But this seems to be turning into more of a full-time job, for a fraction of full time job pay. And unlike every other sites I work with, I don't get credited so I can't use this for self-promotion, or working my portfolio clients into publication opportunities.... ....But I'm definitely regretting the rates I quoted you, and I can't continue to contribute under that current arrangement. "
To be very clear: We never negotiated rate with Jim... we paid him what he asked for. We asked him how many articles was he comfortable delivering on a weekly basis.. he said (5). Again we were okay with this. Bottom line: is that we gave what he requested. Had he said (1) article per month, or credits in the articles, we would have been okay with that. Our ad was very clear. I don't mind renegotiating rates, I do believe this should be done after completion of what has been promised already... especially if you have strung along the client for so long past the due date. It sends a very negative message about your professionalism to move the rate from $35 to $1500 per article after you have promised such, and is already 2 weeks late.
“I have never negotiated the number of articles per week... this client has continually confused me with someone else since our initial conversation. Every time we spoke on the phone, it was clear he had NO idea who i was. I never even agreed to 5 articles after our first conversation, it was never even discussed and 2 days later he was calling and asking where my 5 articles were? I do understand that this client is running a content mill and aggregating as much content as possible, so it's difficult to keep all the contributors straight. I did, however, rise to the challenge and attempt to meet the demands. The client was more than happy with the first 35 or so articles I contributed, until he got a little greedy and bumped that up to 7 articles per week. This of course, would be the equivalent of a full-time job to write 7 in-depth articles... for a rate of $35 which is not a liveable wage in Chicago where the median image is around $1500 per week.”
