Here we go; The Fiverr affiliate program was FINALLY launched. I know many of you internet marketers have been waiting long for this opportunity to share your Fiverr addiction with others, and make a few bucks while you’re at it!
So, what’s the deal that Fiverr affiliate program offers us?
You have to bring new customers to sign up and make a single Fiverr purchase for $5. You’ll get a $14-$15.5 compensation for each client you bring. Sounds like a great deal, doesn’t it?
Also, we get to use some very nice creative tools supplied by Fiverr; there are lots of different banners and sizes (I wonder if they got them done for a Fiverr, he he). See some examples below.
How to join Fiverr affiliate program?
You have a few options as the program runs on a couple of networks;
Peerfly is considered to be one of the best CPA/affiliate networks, with offers from top merchants in various niches such as fiverr and GoDaddy in IM, Alibaba in retail, Match.com in dating, Booking and Agoda in travel and many more. Their Fiverr affiliate program offers $15.5 payment for each new fiverr user who signs up and makes a purchase through your link. Mind that this program only rewards sales from approx. 6 regions (US, CA, UK, AU, IE,NZ).
In some cases, throughout your signup process you might be requested to show your traffic sources and experience. If you have some IM experience, a website or a mailing list, or just a general traffic source, these will do, just be honest with the info.

Shareasale is a top affiliate network in the US, and it hosts thousands of affiliate offers. The fiverr affiliate offer that is hosted there offers a $14 reward but is open to worldwide traffic. As in the above info, you will need to provide your website URL on traffic source during sign up.

Why has the Fiverr affiliate program finally launched? I’d say there are a few main reasons for that:
1. The ever growing competition. Fiverr has dozens if not hundreds of outsourcing competitors. If up till now many of these were merely fiverr clones, trying to imitate the fiverr “gig” business model, using similar yet low level designs and small users base, things now have changed. There are fiverr lookalike niche sites that specialize in a single category – SEOClerks for example, specializing in everything related to SEO, CrowdSpring for logos, graphic design and naming or Fancy Hands for virtual assistants. Other large rivals include Elance and ODesk (who actually merged), Freelancer, Guru and others. This can tear Fiverr apart. Clients interested in internet marketing tools and services will go to one site, while others, say those interested in design projects, will go to another. Eventually Fiverr will become just too general, unappealing marketplace.
2. The growth factor. The average Fiverr buyer (and seller) is a person who is working a lot on the internet. Why not grow your network? Fiverr can offer a lot more, not just to internet marketers or Internet savvies. Anyone could use their funny videos for pranks or holiday gifts. Using an affiliate network, with a nice payout, will help Fiverr do just that. Trust good affiliate marketers; they are creative enough to think of ways to drive traffic.
3. In the wide world of the Internet you just can’t ignore affiliate marketing. Show me a few companies in the internet software or services market that don’t use affiliate marketing program methods. Every leading company supplying internet services of any sort – hosting, WP templates, email marketing software, SEO tools and even freelance platforms have an affiliate program. There’s a reason for that. That’s sales driven compensation, and no player in this industry can afford to not take part. And Fiverr is no exception!
So the question is not why was Fiverr’s affiliate program finally launched, but rather why did they take so long to get it started?
Alright, off to work we go: let’s check how attractive Fiverr can be to people outside of the industry. It seems everyone in the IM world is already familiar with them.
