What is Fiverr Affiliate Program?
Before knowing about the Fiverr affiliate program, first, we should discuss the Fiverr platform.
Fiverr is a freelancing platform, that has 56.40 million people visits per month. Among them some are buyers and some are sellers. In this platform, freelancers list their services(gigs). They mention their offerings and pricing for the service. The service is great and this website is the most trusted website for freelancing. What we will do in its affiliate program? Simply, we will recommend some services to the people who are looking for such services. We will discuss how will we promote the gigs and get conversions.
Basics of Fiverr Affiliates
The best thing about Fiverr affiliates is that everyone can join this program. To join other affiliate marketplaces, you must have a website or source of traffic. They have a lot of criteria to join and beginners cannot fulfill them. So, they always get rejected by those platforms. But this is not the case with Fiverr. Fiverr affiliate program allows everyone to join them and drive traffic to their platform. You get instantly accepted into the platform. Fiverr have no restrictions on promoting the program. You can send emails, write blogs, create videos, and anything. But I will suggest you do not spam your affiliate link. But there is an important point in Fiverr is that You will only get a commission for FTB(First Time Buyers). If a person has joined the platform earlier and buys a service with your link, You are not eligible for commission.
How to Join/Sign up for Fiverr Affiliate Program?

What will you promote in Fiverr Affiliate Program?
The main services you can promote are Fiverr.com, Fiverr Pro, Fiverr Business, AND.co, Fiverr learn, and Fiverr Workspace. These are the services you are going to promote. All these services offer their relevant products. The services on which you should focus are Fiverr.com and Fiverr Pro. I will describe the commission plan later in this post, then you will understand the reason behind this. Basically, we will choose some services/gigs we think is best for the relevant niche and then we will start promoting them. We will discuss four different promotional methods later in this post.
Commission Plan of Fiverr Affiliate Program
The commission plan of Fiverr is very simple and beginner-friendly. In Fiverr.com they provide two promotion options. The first one is Fiverr CPA and the other one is Fiverr Hybrid. Under the Fiverr CPA offer, there are fixed amounts of commission based on different categories and sub-categories. Some examples are the following:
- Fiverr Pro – 150$
- Industrial & Product Design, Data Science, Mobile Apps, E-Commerce Development – 50$
- Website Builders, Web Programming, Game Development – 40$
- SEO, T-shirts, Proofreading, Logo-Making – 30$
- Gaming, Illustration, Voice Over – 25$
- Minimum Commission – 15$
Fiverr Hybrid Program
When it comes to Fiverr Hybrid, It goes towards passive income sources. If you think, the people you are referring to will buy services multiple times then you should give him your Hybrid affiliate link. Why? Because Fiverr Hybrid gives commission in two ways. Firstly, for every FTB you will get a fixed 10$ commission and 10% revenue share for 12 months. And in affiliate marketing, you should go towards recurring programs. This is the major difference between Fiverr.com and Fiverr Hybrid affiliate program.
Fiverr Business program is for small or new startups. Somehow if you managed a new startup or a small business to join the Fiverr Business and they spend 100$, then after you will get a 100$ CPA and 10% revenue share for 12 months. This is a great opportunity. 100 dollars from one business account with a 10% rev share is incredible. You just need a few of them and you will get a really good commission.
Fiverr Learn and Fiverr Workspace
These are some other services you can promote. In Fiverr learn, there are a lot of courses related to different categories. When you promote it and someone joined using your link, you will get a 30% commission on every course he/she purchases in the Fiverr affiliate program.
Fiverr Workspace is a business management suite for freelancers. This helps freelancers in making their paper works easy with online payments, automated invoices, and proposals. For every Unlimited plan user of Workspace, you get a 50% commission.
In the Fiverr affiliate program, Fiverr allow us to add or invite sub-affiliates. To avail the profit of this feature, we will have to invite a Fiverr affiliate through our link. As a return, we will get a 10% of each referral’s lifetime earnings. Which makes this awesome. Working along with someone is better than working alone. You will get a sub-affiliate link and with that link, you can invite sub-affiliates under your downline.
How to Promote a Gig in Fiverr Affiliate Program?
In the Fiverr Affiliate Dashboard, you will find a menu called “Marketing Tools“. This option will help you to create deep links, get embed code or drive traffic to a landing page. As I said earlier, I will explain four different promotional methods, so that you can reach a huge amount of traffic and get a lot of clicks and registrations. Remember do not to spam your link on reputed websites, or your account will get banned(the website’s account). So, let’s discuss those methods.
Promote on Quora & Forums
The first and the most genuine platform to promote an affiliate service or product is Quora. Quora has a huge 630 million visitors per month. And all these people are quality people. They will pay for the good service, they want to purchase. The method to promote Quora is to answer people’s questions relevant to your category. But, you have to deliver quality content then after they will buy a service. Don’t put your direct Fiverr affiliate program’s affiliate link on Quora answers, if you do Quora will ban your account. Create an engaging landing page and put that link in Quora, this will help a lot.
Taking more about Quora
In Quora, you will find a lot of questions like, which is the best freelance platform to hire a developer? Where can I hire a web developer? How to find the best freelance web designer? and many more. The task is to answer these questions and promote some best gigs on Fiverr. For this, you will have to go and find 5-6 best freelancers of your category in a budget range. Create a post explaining about them and insert your affiliate link in their profile. Now, the question is how will you send a person to a specific gig/profile? I will explain it later in this post.
You can apply the same method on different forum websites and other Quora-like websites and promote the Fiverr affiliate program.
Promote through Content Creation
This is one of the best methods to promote a service or product. The method is to create valuable content related to your category and publish that content on different social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Medium, Tumblr, etc. The best way is to create a website and post articles related to your category. Remember the quality of the content should be good. If your content is good, you will get conversions. That’s how you promote the Fiverr affiliate program.

Promote Fiverr Affiliate Program in Facebook Groups
This method can get you clicks and conversions very fast. In this method, you will join a number of Facebook groups related to your category/niche. In such types of groups, the number of people is enormous. You can reach thousands of people in your category with just one post. “Quality” is the key to conversion in every method. I will suggest you publish one post each day in each group promoting your gig with quality content. DO NOT SPAM.
Create Pins on Pinterest for Fiverr Affiliate Program
Let me tell you one thing. Pinterest is the second-largest image search engine after Google. You can not imagine the traffic you can get on your affiliate link through Pinterest. The rule in Pinterest is very simple “Do not spam”. If you do your Pinterest account will get banned. The method is to create attractive and clickable pins/images through Canva. Add your landing page’s link or website link to the destination. Your keyword should be in the title, description, and alt text of the Pin. This will help your Pin to rank higher on search. If your pin is really good, It might rank on Google Image Search through Pinterest.
How to send someone on a specific page?
Sending someone on a specific page is possible through Deep Linking Feature. With the help of this feature, you can refer someone to a person’s profile or to someone’s gig. But how is this helpful for you while promoting Fiverr? The answer is simple. When somebody is looking for a good freelance web developer, you can give him your affiliate link to that developer’s gig and this will increase your chances of conversion. Now, when we know how a deep link is helpful for an affiliate marketer let’s learn about the process of creating a deep link.
How to create a deep link?
The process of creating a deep link in Fiverr is somehow very simple. But at the same time, it can be confusing for some users or beginners. I will show you step-by-step with preview images to clarify all your queries. So, let’s begin and create a deep link.
- The first step is to go to the freelancer’s gig and copy the link address. I am taking a web developer’s gig as an example to show you.
- Now, go to the Fiverr Affiliates dashboard and click on “Marketing Tools”. In the drop-down menu you will see an option “Default and Deep Links”, click on it.
- In the “Default and Deep Links” section in the right upper corner, you will see an option called “LP URL“. Click on it and paste that link you copied and hit enter. Now, all these links you can see on your screen will lead your visitor to that freelancer’s gig from where he can purchase the service. You can shorten your link using the shorten URL button.
- Now, copy the link of the program you want to promote and create a landing page or a website for the service.
From here, you can get a deep link to any page or gig, you will just have to repeat these simple steps.
[UPDATE: Shorten Link feature is not available anymore.]
In this post, we learned everything we should know before joining Fiverr Affiliate Program. What did we learn? We learned about Fiverr, the benefits of joining Fiverr affiliates, and the joining process. We learned to promote Fiverr with four different genuine methods. The best thing is that we know what precautions we should take during the promotional phase. Most importantly we know that we can send a visitor to a particular page like a freelancer’s gig directly with our affiliate link. This deep link feature increases our chances to get more conversions. Make sure to create a website or a landing page to avoid getting your account banned from a particular promotional website. I hope you will do great with this affiliate program and you will get your first conversion in the upcoming days.
WORK HARD, DON’T GIVE UP, AND BE SUCCESSFUL.
