I don’t know if you guys are facing the same issues. I have been getting these messages where buyers/trolls keep saying “Hi/Hello/How are you” in my inbox and even ask for my portfolio. After seeing my portfolio, they give me a few compliments but never talk about anything else. I mean, come on.
I have a few doubts about these things:
1: Maybe they are just trying to do this to bring down my response rates.
2: They are using fake accounts to steal my portfolio items.
3: They are using my replies for their own clients.
4: They are using my custom quote script for themselves.
This is not Facebook or Tinder where you can “Just talk” with people. After dealing with a lot of dollar douches on a daily basis, I don’t have the patience or the time to reply to your casual talks.
If you are doing this to bring someone down, you are smart.
If you are stealing my scripts, you are in for a good surprise My scripts don’t always work. And my rates are really high.
Please drop in your thoughts about this.
