Spam messages seem to come to those who are notably successful on Fiverr. It happens because certain new sellers think that sponging off of someone else’s success is a good way to move up in the world. Someone else does the hard work, and the spammer can ride the wave to the top without having to lift any fingers.
I get a lot of spam messages. Most of them are along the lines of:
“Hey, Fiverr senior, I love to see how successful you are. You are my hero! I want to be just like you. Can I be your partner, and you can tell me everything you know so that I can be just as successful as you are?”
My response: “Nope. You can be successful by learning how to work hard, and achieve your own goals.”
Or, other spammers send me messages that say: “You have many orders. Give me some of those orders so that I have some work to do too.”
My response: “Nope. These are my orders. Please figure out how to earn your own.”
Or, still other spammers ask, “Can you buy my gigs. I’ll be ever so grateful to work for you!”
My response: “Nope. I don’t need your services. I am not your target customer. Please go find the people that need your services, instead of begging for sales from people who don’t need them.”
Spammers are lazy. Laziness is a terrible business strategy.
I will continue to succeed, because I work hard, I understand my customers, and I deliver high-quality work. Spammers will continue to fail because they have no interest in doing any of those things.
