Fiverr Pro: Giving Outstanding Freelancers the Seal of Approval

Earlier this year, Fiverr launched its Fiverr Pro program. Fiverr Pro is the new premium channel offered by Fiverr, which promotes the services of outstanding freelance professionals to clients (or “buyers”, as Fiverr calls them). It’s available on the same Fiverr platform, but Pro users get a Pro badge added to their profile to identify them as professional, reliable, and premium freelancers.

For buyers, the Fiverr Pro badge helps them find hand-vetted freelancers they can trust to complete their projects to the highest quality, and at an affordable price. For freelancers, Fiverr Pro is a way to get even more highquality Gigs and open new business opportunities.

What’s in it For Freelancers?

Fiverr Pro is marketed as an elite community of handpicked talent. When you join Fiverr Pro, you can get to enjoy the benefits of being recognized as one of the world’s best freelancers. Here are some of the main advantages to using Fiverr Pro as a freelancer.

Advantage #1: Less hassle

When you use Fiverr Pro as a freelancer you know that you’ll get paid on time, hassle-free. Fiverr promises that Pro sellers won’t have to worry about getting paid; just hit Deliver and watch the money come through. Fiverr Pro offers dedicated Success Managers to its qualified freelancers, giving you access to 24/7 support if you encounter any difficulties when communicating with your clients. Your Success Manager will resolve any issues that arise.

Advantage #2: Get better gigs

Fiverr Pro sellers stand out from the rest with a special Pro badge. This lets buyers know that they can trust you to deliver high quality work, meet their deadlines, and fulfill their requirements. When buyers browse the Gigs catalog, they can filter profiles so that the Pro sellers appear first. Getting Fiverr Pro status is the key to scoring better Gigs.

Advantage #3: Give your profile a boost

Using Fiverr Pro is like upgrading your seller profile to a premium status reserved only for the best talent. The atmosphere is professional and experienced. Buyers know that you are skilled and you’ll know that you belong to an elite club with other handpicked freelancers. Fiverr Pro attracts serious buyers running major projects who need to know that they’re hiring reliable, experienced professionals.

Advantage #4: Set the terms yourself

When you sell through Fiverr Pro, you set the terms. You can charge the price you know you deserve for your talents and experience. There’s no negotiating over your fee and no pressure to lower your price to that of another seller who’s fresh out of design school. With Fiverr Pro you can still send custom offers to buyers who have particular requirements and the ordering process is still exactly the same.

Advantage #5: Show yourself off

Fiverr Pro gives the best freelancers a platform to show what they are capable of. On Fiverr Pro you can share your education, qualifications, and certifications. You can really make an impression on buyers by presenting your portfolio and telling everyone about your most impressive gigs. There’s no need to be shy on Fiverr Pro!

The Bottom Line

So, what’s the catch? There is none! You don’t have to pay a membership fee to join and you don’t lose anything if your application isn’t accepted. In fact, Fiverr invites you to apply again if you don’t succeed the first time. The referral fee that you pay for getting a Gig through Fiverr Pro is exactly the same as that charged for using the regular Fiverr platform – but this time you’ll be charging the price you want to set.

How Can I Apply?

Fiverr asks all freelancers to submit an application to qualify for Fiverr Pro. It’s open to both new and seasoned Fiverr professionals. The application includes details about your professional background, education and projects you’ve worked on. The Fiverr team evaluates each application personally and determines which professionals qualify.
