Fiverr recently unveiled Fiverr Certified, a curated marketplace that allows some of its largest tech partners – such as Amazon Ads, Stripe, monday.com
, Podia, Leadpages, TikTok, and WooCommerce – to certify experts specializing in their products.
In the official press release
, Fiverr Founder and CEO Micha Kaufman explained that “Fiverr exists to connect every business to exceptional talent, in the simplest way possible.” As a result, this new feature “is a natural progression towards that goal – producing beautifully simple product solutions to tedious business problems.”
The expectation is that small businesses with limited resources will benefit from Fiverr Certified the most because they can now connect with trusted experts from the platform “instantaneously.” Because these businesses don’t typically have the budget to hire internal IT teams to install, customize, and maintain the SaaS products they rely on, managers can log into the platform to find the individuals who specialize in the products they use.
Some of Fiverr’s tech partners have already seen positive results from using Fiverr’s Certified service. Monday.com’s VP of Channel Partnerships and Indirect Sales, Ophir Penso, shared that thanks to Certified, the company has been able to expand its consumer base as well as provide a higher level of service for existing customers. “We can now deliver professional services and solutions to our customers from vetted, certified professionals,” he said.
Mandi Ehman, Director of Marketing for e-commerce website builder Podia, observed that Certified is “exactly what we were looking for – a way to identify, certify, and promote Podia experts so that our users can find the right service provider for their specific needs.”
As one of the most reliable freelance platforms, Fiverr
is also dedicated to attracting the best independent talent to its platform. According to the company, Certified will open up more opportunities for freelancers to expand their skill set and increase their revenue.
Unlike the recently launched Fiverr Enterprise solution, which targets companies spending over $3,000/month on freelance talent, Fiverr Certified
aims to connect SMBs to verified freelance tech experts cherry-picked by corporations.
