3 Unconventional (And Profitable!) Ways to Promote Fiverr as an Affiliate
Who doesn’t like the idea of passive income? Affiliate marketing is a great way to make some extra money on the side. Basically, you promote a product or a platform, and every time someone buys or signs up for something through your link, you get a commission.
With Fiverr Affiliates, you make a commission every time you get a new user to buy on Fiverr (or other Fiverr products, like Fiverr Learn). And, despite what you might think – this opportunity is not limited only to those who have a business-oriented audience. There are so many different services and categories you can promote besides the popular Gig rundowns like logo design and blog articles.
There’s plenty of room for everybody on Fiverr. So while you can get people to join the fun through conventional ways like sharing on social media or your website, here are three more creative ways to promote Fiverr that you’ve probably never thought about.
1. Integrate Fiverr products inside an online tool
Do you have an online tool that generates many users? Maybe you have a music playlist-making tool or a photo editing tool that you made while learning how to program. A quick search through Fiverr’s various services will bring up an array of related Gigs you can integrate, like DJ mixing and professional Photoshoppers.
Their site consists of a resume tool that you can fill out with your own information. But, they also share Fiverr services like proofreaders and resume writers. This way, if users want to take their resume to the next level or realize they need some help, they have it right in front of them.
Integrating Fiverr products in your online tool can complement your offerings and give users more options.
2. Promote Fiverr Gigs on unrelated, niche sites
Did you know that there are Gigs on Fiverr like personal stylists and tattoo design? You might be surprised at just how many talented individuals there are on Fiverr. Any niche you can think of, there’s probably someone who knows how to do it, and you can share them on your site.
JewelsAdvisor is a blog all about how to buy and take care of jewelry, and as you can see, they’ve integrated Fiverr Gigs for custom jewelry designers in their posts.
Let’s say you run a professional development blog all about giving better presentations at school or work. Maybe your readers need a second opinion or someone to practice with. You can share these presentation Gigs to help your readers take what they’ve learned from you and find further support.
Even in seemingly unrelated niches, you can still find an angle to promote a specific service on Fiverr.
3. Dive deep into underserved YouTube niches
YouTube is the number 2 most visited site in the world as of 2021, with mobile users spending an average of 1.5 hours per day browsing its massive video collection. Between this gigantic amount of traffic, there’s plenty of hidden affiliate marketing opportunities just waiting for you to capitalize on.
If you search “I Paid Fiverr” on YouTube, you’ll find trending videos with millions of views. Some of them are comparison videos of different price points, and some are process videos that show the result of a particular Gig. Either way, they spark curiosity and can lead to many conversions.
This YouTube video by Dyerex goes through their experience paying Fiverr spell casters to cast a “contact me” spell. The video is their most viewed and captured the attention of over 5,000 viewers. Their comment section is also full of engaging comments.
Even if you don’t have thousands of subscribers (or even if you do!), you can still benefit from promoting more niche and obscure topics to get views. Like we mentioned earlier, there is such a diverse range of Fiverr services that you can surely find a topic that will pique the interest of a new audience.
YouTube is an entertainment platform where you can use your personality and experience to share Fiverr services for lesser-known topics.
At the end of the day, you can get creative, have fun, and make some money on the side with these three imaginative ways to promote Fiverr services. Fiverr Affiliates offers professional support, intuitive dashboards, and creative resources to help you get started.
