Hello everyone, my name is Gleb Sergeev, I’m a musical digital producer.
A year and a half ago I can not imagine that Fiverr will give me so much work that at some point I did not have time to do it. But this story is not about how to achieve income of several thousand dollars, but how you can lose everything in one moment.
At the very beginning, I practically did not encounter this problem. I had a service related to promotion in Spotify playlists. When he was rejected, I wrote a letter to the Fiverr support team, where it was said that I potentially violated the rules of a third party. Well I said, I changed the service to exclude any possible reasons. (the Fiverr team never mentioned specific reasons, although from the very beginning I tried to learn and exclude errors)
Next was a successful period, I made about 4 services related to the promotion of artists and musicians and their songs in Spotify. There were a lot of customers, because now it’s an urgent topic.
I had a service of viral promotion of spotify songs in blogs and facebook communities. Yes, I agree that this method is not entirely legal, as it violates the rules of working with facebook.
I used this method since it was cheap and real traffic. This service and promotion in the playlists were rejected.
Dozens of twins and clones who wrote that they are Gleb Sergeev.
As soon as I gained popularity, clones appeared that wrote my name in the services. I had to contact customer support. I ran two questions in parallel. About my Miracle Gig - Viral advertising Spotify - was restored, I was told a few mistakes, I realized that you need to respect both the rules and this chance. Since I worked for many years promoting artists through facebook ads, I knew and could direct legal and clean traffic. I became completely clean in this regard and could report back to the support team. Because of this, I had to increase the price of the service, but now everything is cool, clean and healthy. At that moment I was happy that everything was fine.
Attack of the clones.
Due to the fact that my spotify promotion services have become very popular. the cloning boom came. People stupidly wrote in the services that they are me. Started a real Chaos in the promotion section of Spotify. I knew that in this section there are about 10-15 adequate sellers and hundreds excuse - abnormal people. Business went to mass cleaning.
Mass cleaning or black Monday.
I do not exclude that this cleaning was initiated by the Spotify service. Since there were services with cheating. In a few days, almost all the services related to spotify have been removed by the Fiverr team. Under this, all the normal salesmen and anyone got.
I also started writing to the support team, to find out the reasons. But alas, support did not want to understand, they wrote standard forms, just to not solve the issue. Third party, a third party, a potential violation. I told them 5 times that my service was already rejected, I solved all the mistakes, I can provide a report for each order and an extract from Facebook about the fact that I’m making a legal promotion. But it’s useless, they do not want to listen to me.
I had to write again, but the employee did not even answer me and the question was automatically resolved.
Thank you Fiverr for what you gave me work. But I’m not a beast to be treated like this.
I sent all my customers to the fiverr to conduct transactions here.
I got spit. I can not rely on you. You are destroying the destiny of man.
Do not build an illusion even if you are a successful seller on a fiverr, at any time you can throw and no one at all to intercede for you.
I await your comments and advice. Thank you.
