Nice Questions! @coerdelion
You have all the right to ask questions please, i will share my genuine thoughts with you in the form of para wise replies to your questions as below:-
I am new to fiverr and to be honest nobody told me that posting here will get me more sales however, you can see from my data that since joining i am spending considerable time on fiverr forum in terms of reading different useful posts/ comments/ advises and participating actively which includes giving likes and sharing my input where i think is appropriate in the form of comments. Having said that i will openly accept that creating own pleasant/ positive post is always good/ beneficent to involve others and definitely it creates positive impression and serve as a strong kick off.
No. Neither i paid to anyone for a course to take it as a homework task nor discussed with anyone or sought guidance. Right or wrong, purely my own decision/ thought to create some positive post and participate as an active fiverr forum member.
To conclude, post was generated with a very clean and positive intent.
Dear @coerdelion, i have shared my genuine thoughts with you and politely offer you that still if you have any other query, please do ask openly.
