Reaching Out to Previous Clients OK?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have it in mind to reach out to my old contacts on Fiverr; those who at one time bought my gig and those who only messaged to enquired about it but never bought it.

My intention is to remind them of the services I offer in case they have task related to the gigs.

So my question is; does doing this also violates Fiverr's ToS?

Remember, these are contacts that some have ordered for my gig before.

Thank you as I await your response

That's risky. You risk getting your messages marked as spam. You shouldn't spam your buyers, anyway. It's not a good way of marketing. 

What you can do instead, if you have access to Seller Plus, is to send out coupons to your best buyers, to get them to return. 

But I would strongly recommend that you don't reach out to previous buyers with anything unless they ask you for it.

No it will harm your account. I am personally witness this problem. I knock some of my old client and one of them report me as spam and i got a warning from fiverr. so dont do it.

Maybe if you stopped hitting him, and messaged him. However like they said, it is spam.  But you are using "Knock" incorrectly.

Nah, Karma for refusing to stoop so low as to call anyone "sir".  I already accused you of being a Viking ruffian for this in another thread. 😀

As I explained in a different thread, Sir News, "sir" is not something we even have a word for in Norwegian, my dear redneck friend.

I've seen it once in a Norwegian movie from the 60s, where they made fun of the american police being a bit trigger happy. The local "sherrif" fired his shotgun at the ceiling, yelled "yes sir" and put on his hat. 

(Our police wasn't even armed regularly until just a few years ago, and it's still being debated if they should have access to firearms or not without keeping it locked in a safe in the back of the car and having to ask the central for permission before taking it out - just for a bit of context on Norwegian culture lol)

The Vikings would not recognize the place.

This is true. 

But then again, regular people can't carry firearms either in most cases. If you carried one to the store (a buddy of mine in Texas will wear his magnum to the supermarket, for whatever reason) you'd be arrested. Unless you shoot the police before they have time to get their weapon permission, that is.

It's risky. Some sellers do it and don't get into trouble, but unless the previous client explicitly told you that they want to be informed about your new gigs, extras, or discounts, it's an unsolicited message. If just one client reports you for sending them an unsolicited message, you could get an account warning.

Is it allowed to reach out to past clients to let them know about a new gig,

Please respect our members privacy by not contacting them with offers, questions, suggestions or anything which is not directly related to their Gigs or orders.

The above is from the Terms of Service at the bottom of the Fiverr main page under Violations.

Well, I must say that it depends what kind of relation you had with your client. Like in my case, I have few clients who like to be very "To the point" and most of our conversation is about just the order, while few of them ask what else do I do or can provide and say that they might need them in future. 
So, I contact such clients later on. 

Makes sense, right?
