This forum is full of tips & advice for new sellers by new sellers, who are yet to make a single sale or show any signs of success. They mention 10 buyer requests every day, staying online 24/7 (which is a running joke at this point), being active in the forum, sharing your gigs with your friends and family through social media, and all the other nonsense. My question is, what about the actual service you provide? What about the gig quality, communication skills, customer service, work ethic, and personal virtues? What about the actual foundation upon which you are building your business? Sure, some of these tricks might land you a sale or two, but for how long? Some time ago I created a post in the forum titled "Any% permanent account termination speedrunning scene" in which I used satire to bring attention to sellers who go out of their way to infringe on other sellers' copyrights, misrepresent their identity or break the TOS in any other creative way. Unfortunately, I have to go back to this subject. It has become a routine for me to check my niche for gigs who are shamelessly stealing my gig photos or my gig description. Sometimes, they steal a little bit and sometimes I have to wonder if my eyesight is not getting worse because I swear I can see my gig double in the search results. So far I had to take down 15 gigs and 8 profiles of sellers who do not grasp the concept of intellectual property. And let me tell you, it takes time that I would rather spend on something more productive. If you're a new seller who's just starting out, forget about the tips & tricks and focus on your foundation. This will save me and countless other sellers, who take their work seriously a lot of precious time. There's no need to steal content that does not belong to you, you can do better than that. Here's a reminder from fiverr: Gigs and/or users may be removed by Fiverr from the Site for violations of these Terms of Service and/or our Community Standards, which may include (but are not limited to) the following violations and/or materials: Copyright Infringement, Trademark Infringement, and violation of a third party's terms of service reported through our Intellectual Property Claims Policy. Intentional copies of Gigs Spam, nonsense, or violent or deceptive Gigs (I wish this was implemented in the forums as well) Exceedingly low quality Gigs
Does this mean that I have the right to use sold work in my portfolio? Or post them in my own profiles in social media and streaming platforms? (If the sold work doesn't contain anything that is provided by the buyer) I'm a seller.
A customer after buying my Gig (PDF) liked it very much and now wants to buy the copyright from me for 200$. So I have 4 concerns: 1-I don't know how to write this kind of document. 2-How do I do this within fiverr and for this amount of money? 3-I have to remove my Gig from Fiverr? 4-What will happen to those who previously bought these Gig files from me with resale license? ¡¡¡¡Can someone please help me !!!! Note: The PDF file I sold to other customers consists of 60 pages, but this customer's I added 15 pages with other designs that no one else has and that I have not sold to anyone else. So I guess that makes it different...
