Is it spam to advertise my gig in message?


#1

i have a question, recently i send a message about my gig to another fiverr account holder…

i just told her

"i will write your name or text in 15 different style in just $5 ($10 discount )

checkout my gig and attached samples with your name"



and after 5 minutes she replayed

"CAN YOU NOT SPAM ME THANK YOU. i HAVE REPORTED YOU AND YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE BLOCKED IF YOU CONTINUE"



is it spam? i want to know that is it spam to advertise my gig in message?



#2

Absolutely yes.

Unless you’re replying to buyers’ requests.

From Fiverr’s Terms of Service: “Please respect our members privacy by not contacting them for commercial purposes without their consent.”


#4

Yes it is. But you can advertise it in the forum in My Fiverr Gigs.

thank you soo …but i have 1 more question …if she reported this will my account blocked or remain…and if fiverr blocked what i will do?


#6

I think Fiverr will probably not ban you immediately. It will either give you a warning, or block you from contacting that particular account again.


#7

thank you sooo much everyone… i’m too very about this…now i’ll not advertise my gig in message and thanks all…


#8

Maybe it won’t get blocked if you don’t “message” more people. Of if you are charming in messaging and they’ll not report you as spam.

You messaged me too, but I was nice haha. It is spam, I was a bit confused you messaged me about designs as well seeing as my name is “idesigngraphic”.

Reply to @cyrill_james: You’ll have to wait and see what happens. You might get a warning, or staff could temporarily disable your messaging if you have spammed several people.

I doubt that they would delete your account if you only sent one spammy message.
