It’s time for a blog about our experience with the Fiverr Affiliate Program!

The goal of 101 Data is to provide a better way for businesses and individuals to pull business lists they can generate leads from. But, as anyone in marketing will tell you, an app alone is not enough. One needs a website and a blog to go with it. This is the blog, and a nice side effect of a blog is that you can use your real estate to publish ads. if you’re good at it, you can even make this the whole thing and make money via affiliate marketing.¬†Affiliate marketing is a performance-based (as in you get paid when you deliver) marketing strategy where a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s marketing efforts. It is a way for companies to promote their products or services through individuals or other companies (affiliates) who market the products and earn a commission for each sale or lead generated.

Half for fun, half because we want to try and see if we can monetize this, we opted for the Fiverr Affiliate program. Their program is not known to be the most lucrative, but we like it because we use Fiverr and we blog about it, so it feels more genuine. Fiverr should also be better for websites targeting b2b audiences, which is what we do.

Understanding the Fiverr Affiliate Program

The Fiverr Affiliate Program is a partnership program offered by Fiverr, the popular platform with over 5.5 million users, that allows individuals and businesses to earn commissions by promoting Fiverr’s services. Through the program, affiliates gain access to a dashboard where they can manage and monitor their campaigns, as well as creative assets to help them effectively promote Fiverr. The commission structure varies depending on the specific service being promoted. If you are a content creator whose audience could benefit from Fiverr’s services, we highly recommend trying out the Fiverr Affiliate Program.

How does the Fiverr Affiliate Program work?

When you join the program, Fiverr provides you with a dashboard to manage and monitor your campaigns. They also offer creative assets to help you effectively promote their services. The commission you earn as an affiliate varies depending on the specific service you choose to promote. To learn more about the commission rates and offerings, you can visit their website. If you are a content creator targeting an audience that could benefit from Fiverr’s services, partnering with Fiverr through their affiliate program can be a great opportunity to monetize your platform.

Benefits of joining the Fiverr Affiliate Program

  • Diverse Product Range: there are so many services offered on Fiverr that you can almost always link a certain gig widget to a topic or keyword you are blogging or writing about. You can also promote a variety of services, including Fiverr gigs, Fiverr Business, Fiverr Affiliates, Fiverr Workspace, and Fiverr Learn.
  • Commission Options: Two commission plans: Fiverr CPA (dynamic CPA of $15 – $150 based on customer purchases) and Fiverr Hybrid (fixed $10 CPA + 10% revenue share for 12 months).
  • Extended Cookie Duration:
    A 30-day cookie duration on registrations means you can earn commissions even if the referred customer makes a purchase months later.
  • Marketing Tools: Fiverr has some cool marketing assets, including images, gifs, HTML code, videos, and ebooks. So far we have only used a few of these, we need to play around with the different widgets a bit more.

Supposedly Fiverr has higher search interest than other freelancer marketplaces, potentially making it easier for you to attract clicks and conversions.

Challenges

The biggest issue we see with the Fiverr program is that only new sign ups count. So if you have someone buy services via your website but they already had a Fiverr account it doesn’t count. That’s pretty lame. There’s other negatives reported by users like commission capping but that seems like a luxury problem for us for now.

In general, the program works, we saw immediate results via the dashboards: impressions, clicks etc… What we need to do now if drive more traffic so we get more impressions, clicks and sign ups.

For this we focus on creating high-quality content. We believe that content is king, and by providing valuable and informative content to our audience (we hope), we are able to build trust and credibility. This not only helps in generating conversions and sales, but also in establishing long-term relationships with our audience.

One thing we might start doing is show casing the relationships with freelancers that have been instrumental in our success. By collaborating with freelancers and showcasing their work, we could be able to provide our audience with real-life examples of the services available on Fiverr. This builds trust and encourages conversions.

Should you try out the Fiverr Affiliate Program?

It’s so easy to get going with it, that we’d say yes give it a try. Especially if your target audience is b2b and you have high traffic already. The best thing about the program is you can really pin point the services you want to link to your content, and that just makes the whole experience more legit.
