    For example, if I contact previous buyers to let them know I have a new gig that might interest them.

    Thanks

    You can do that. Just message your previous buyers using fiverr and let em know about your new gig. Fiverr shouldn't have a prob with that. They make money when you make money.

    Their TOS state:

    Posting or sending adult, illegal, copyright protected, promotional, spam, violent, nonsense or any non cool stuff is strictly prohibited. Doing so will get your account blocked permanently.

    Does that mean I can't?

    i don't think it's mean you can't, however i only sent one pm there to a user who requested a gig (you know on the right hand side in the green bracket), i pmed the url of my gig as well and fiverr right after that put my gig under review, finally everything turned out well tho, so it can be an automatic security measure

    i guess you'll be fine, just don't spam them/send excessive amount of pms a day, there's a limit what you can send with one account per day, i've read it somewhere, but i don't remember the exact number, maybe it's 25, so don't exceed the limit

    don't do that, the person who got your pm will (sometime) mark your message as spam!

    You have to be really careful with this-- the best method is to develop a relationship (outside of Fiverr) with each and every person you do a Fiverr for. You do this, of course, by doing the Fiverr well, then following up and saying "I'd love to keep in touch in case you need any more work done-- here is my email!"

    Seriously, Fiverr will ban you if you try to spam people. They are total purists.

    I read somewhere that you are not allowed to send email addresses in Fiverr. I'd recommend to get clear on what you can and can't do before you try it. Just send them to feedback (a.t.) Fiverr with your Q's. They usually answer within a day or two.

    you could always include your contact information in any of the files you return to them for completed work, letting them know how they can contact you directly and your website. i do it all the time, never had issues yet.
