Interesting read. Personally, as a freelancer for 10 years, I've not been a fan of Fiverr simply because it helps to undervalue quality. I understand they've made some adjustments, but the talent pool (at least in writing) still lags and I decided it wasn't worth pursuing further at that time.

As far as some of the other main ones, the same problem exists and I've constantly heard from clients that they hired someone, the quality was poor, and they want someone to do it right. It's frustrating, especially when you have great experience and easily see the difference between eh and wow.

I think it has a lot to do with the freelancing culture in general. If you're the type of person who went into freelancing just to make as much money as you can, your instinct would be to get as many clients as possible. When you hoard projects, that's when quality suffers. You don't dedicate enough time to ensure the quality because you're too busy either marketing yourself or rushing to finish the project and jump on a new one.

Professional freelancers like ourselves understand the value of our reputations so we don't do that. We understand that the money will come when we provide value and get great referrals because of the work that we do. But sadly, most don't understand that. This is what gives us a bad reputation.
