๐Ÿ˜  Haters

โ€œUnlimited is misleading.โ€
The “one request at a time” rule prevents scope creep. This makes it impossible to abuse the system.

โ€œHow to deal with the most demanding clients when the cost of service outweighs revenue?โ€
It may be that your services are not a good fit for the most demanding clients. Those who need a full-time professional may not be your ideal customer. There are clients who have small, occasional needs for your service. This is your gold mine.

โ€œUnlimited revisions lead to bad quality. Why bother if we can revise โ€˜one more timeโ€™?โ€
Poor execution will lead to churn and bad word of mouth. Unlimited requests and revisions are part of your value proposition. But the deciding factor is the quality of your services.
