OK, I think this is the best place to put this post. Also, I saw an old post on this but it looks like it was closed.
I am a voice over artist and still pretty new here. I have responded to several buyer requests to try and get some business and exposure. Many of the buyers request a sample of the recording in their request, but unless I am missing something files cannot be sent without the buyer sending a message to the seller.
An old post on the subject that I found suggested:
- request the buyer message you (which I have to no avail)
- send the buyer an offer with a dropbox link included so they can get the sample there.
Obviously option 2 means less work for the buyer, but would sending them to links and files outside of fiverr.com a violation of TOS? Are there other ways of sending files without requesting a message from the buyer?
I’ve never get a response when I’ve asked the buyer to message me, and I’m thinking option 2 eliminates a step for the buyer, but I want to be sure I am not stepping outside the lines of proper fiverr etiquette.
