Mod Note: This was a conversation that started within a separate thread but went on something of a tangent. It has been relocated and can continue here (if desired) as a discussion about sellers advertising or promoting themselves in general.
As per Fiverr TOS, a seller CAN advertise his or her gig(s) outside the Fiverr platform (except in Adwords), provided he or she “must comply with laws and terms of service of the advertising platform or relevant website used to advertise”
NO confusions between promoting and advertising, please.
