Be careful when contacting support, don't mention anything about Facebook lol. They'll ban you thinking you're buying/exchanging reviews.

Fiverr has mentioned that their affiliate partners can promote any gig on the platform, but there is a thread on their community forum where members have asked this question, and most agreed that you can't promote your own gig through your affiliate links.

Promoting your gig in a FB group is perfectly fine as long as you aren't soliciting reviews... Even then, plenty of people do that to give their gigs a boost in the beginning (just don't go overboard).

You could definitely do that.

I don't believe the Fiverr TOS prevents this but here's a piece of advice.

One of the best ways you can promote the Fiverr Gigs that will pay you an affiliate commission is through some sort of free guide.


You can go to all sorts of Facebook groups and offer people free guides.

Now, you can't just spam this.

You have to play your cards right.


You have to come in answering people's questions and become a credible member of these online communities.

This takes quite a bit of time.

You should have at least a long list of Facebook groups that you visit every day and you answer questions.

Once people can get the impression that you are a legit member of the community, then you can ask them to DM you and then you can send your free guide.

Of course, you should only try to attract people who have a high likelihood of actually hiring people from Fiverr.

But this is a great way to build a critical mass of people who not only will buy from you once, but many times over.


I would suggest that later on, once you get some cash from your Fiverr affiliate account, invest in a squeeze page and a mailing list.

Fiverr does not allow advertising affiliate links to its services.
One thing I would advise you to create an affiliate account for another person. Use a VPN to log in. Then the fiver will not suspect that you are advertising your own services.
And try to advertise 80% of your services and at least 20% of the services of other freelancers. It won't arouse suspicion.

Stop listening to people saying "You ought to be able to do this or that, Amazan blah blah"
The fact is you CANNOT promote your own Fiverr gigs with an affiliate link - or rather, you can but you risk your entire affiliate account being banned. This is how Fiverr Support answered my email asking the same question:

Thank you for contacting us.

Every Fiverr seller is welcome to join our affiliate program, and operate both as a seller and as an affiliate (make sure though to use different email addresses for the two accounts). However, please be advised that affiliates cannot promote their own gigs. This goes against our terms. You are more than welcome to promote other sellers' gigs and services, as well as general categories, but you can't get paid for your gig as a seller and receive a commission as an affiliate.


I hope that helps.
