You got a point there. Although some of them seem to be oddly creative in their very own way.
I’ve had one of my bio copycats inbox me to ask if I’d do a job for them, also send someone else to ask me, after it probably had dawned on them that I might not feel inclined to help someone who copies my bio and deceives buyers to fulfill their ill-gained orders and get them good reviews to cover up the eventual “I speak this language myself and what I got was clearly a Google translation” review.
Many copycats also seem to suffer from a lack of dedication to detail, though, and so, the sent ahead person didn’t just copy/paste the actual person’s desire but also the text of that person telling them to ask me into my inbox … That was quite funny.
And yes, at least have some flair if nothing else. I think it’s much less now, due to Fiverrs ID checks, or Fiverr gurus advising people to use photos of more normal looking people if they already have to use other people’s photos these days, or both, but when I joined the forum back when, there were loads of sellers using photos of actors and models. It was really tempting to suggest trying modeling instead of Fiverr when they asked how to make sales with their $5, unlimited revisions, 100% satisfaction or money back guarantee gigs.
Yes, I think it’s become harder to use stolen profile photos for flair, but a little creativity in their own bio or gig copy could go a long way, some people might just buy because they feel entertained and hope for the same flair in their deliverables, or are curious to see what they’ll get from the tycoon if they believe the story.
