I’m a Voice-Over person and a little puzzled by what is and isn’t allowed by Fiverr when it comes to linking to my SoundCloud page, so people can easily listen to voiceovers I have done. I’d love it if anyone here on the forum could help me further with this.
It’s official Fiverr policy (in Seller’s Advice) that you can link to certain sites - but only certain sites - including SoundCloud and Youtube. That’s official. I am a little surprised by this because obviously that’s leading people away from the Fiverr site, something that Fiverr is (understandably) keen to avoid. But it says in black and white you can put such a link in your “profile or description”. The link isn’t a hyperlink that people can click on, they have to highlight, copy and paste which is not very convenient, but still it’s a link. So I have put a link to SoundCloud in my Voice-Over Gig Description. I noticed that when I tried to put the same link in my profile, it wasn’t allowed, maybe because I had already put the link in my Gig description.
What I am unclear about is whether people are allowed to put a link to, in my case, SoundCloud in their responses to Buyers Requests? I have a feeling the answer is no, but I can’t see the official advice on this. I don’t quite see the difference in allowing such a link in your Gig description, but not allowing it in Buyers Requests.
If you have knowledge, backed up by an actual quote, of the official policy on this specific question of links in Buyers’ Requests, do please reply…
