Can I message my previous buyers who made a commitment to working with me?

Take great care in how much you “help” supposed “buyers” esp if they come to you with sob stories and/or grand promises. They are simply time wasting or scamming. Same net result for you. Time and energy wasted.

I suffer from helpfulness too (even as I type this). While it appears to be an asset and you think showing it makes you more valuable. Nuh uh. You will see person after person you helped buy elsewhere. I sometimes even get them come back to me when the things I warned about happen with their hack Mix Engineer and start trying to get more free advice on how to fix it.

Here’s the advice: Take the first advice given by the guy you talked to, hire that person. Pay that person. If you do otherwise and it effs up, go back to the start and get it right this time. No munny, no hunny.

Never message them. They are not a buyer (most probably) as they never bought but took help by doing promises. Just ignore and move ahead, incase of doing message, they can report you and you will receive a warning from fiverr. And 3 consecutive warnings = account seized permanently.

Make it a new gig. And be relax! It’s an open market and we have to follow the rules. Check fiverr terms and conditions and come up with new gig, may God help you more!

One thing, never depend on any gig/ work/ site/ platform… as it is freelance, we are earning here but unfortunately, don’t know for how long!

Yes, you said right but we need to start a career in the marketplace then you got a lot of works not earlier.

Actually, some buyers who got help from me did not place an order. After the help, he made a promise that he would work on his next project but forgot me. I think, my gig loses rank for this reason. So, what should I do about it?

That’s a no no. Don’t help anyone for free. They want a sample? They need to buy one. You’re losing your time “helping” them, time you could be using for anything more productive. This is the internet, we have to suspect from any person who approaches us. Specially if they want work done for free. Most are scammers or people who won’t give you the money you deserve for your time and work.

Don’t waste your time that way. Giving the extra mile means providing an excellent service, not offering unpaid/extra work for free. Fiverr is a platform that favors buyers instead of sellers, so they may abuse the system and yourself as a seller if you let them to. Set your boundaries and don’t let any buyer, no matter how appealing their offer may be, cross them.

If every Buyer who told me in my inbox or in a review that they intend to keep using my services, actually followed through with those empty promises, I’d be rich.

I think this comes from my 40+ years in Media/Marketing.

I’ve heard it all.

Seriously.

I also know when I’m being snowed.

Usually, that’s about 99.9% of the time.

So…don’t pester your previous Buyers.

Fiverr may look at it as you spamming and you’ll earn a warning.

You don’t want that.

You may send him message one time.

Please do not give others false advice that could get them a warning on their account. Buyers do not want to get unsolicited messages asking for work. It is a simple thing for an annoyed buyer to report a seller that does so! 😬

NO! Do NOT give this guy BAD advice that could get his account a warning.

It is stated clearly to NOT reach out to buyers unless they reach out to you FIRST - and this does not mean if you have a 6 day/week/month old message from someone who picked your brain and then left you hanging, that you can message them out of the blue asking if they need anything in your Gigs.

You have read 39 minutes of the forum. I suggest you do some more reading before chiming in with bad advice that harms people who are not sure how to handle things.

You are risking losing your account if you message a previous buyer.
