When evaluating quotes, it can be difficult to separate the freelancers who want to work on your project from those who want to work on every project. Simplify this task by including certain instructions in your project description. BakBurner Digital, LLC founder Scott Stanchak has some advice:
“Avoid canned responses by posing pointed questions to potential candidates. Or, you can even request they start their application with a certain phrase.”
For example, you can ask freelancers to type the name of their favorite song at the end of their quote.
