How to get approved for Fiverr pro

We’ve talked about how to apply for a Fiverr pro account; however, applying is one thing, getting approved is another. There are a lot of things you need to have in mind when applying to Fiverr pro.

The information provided before registration requested that Fiverr pro applicants fill in their details in English. This is a huge challenge for anyone not from an English Speaking country; you may find it difficult to express yourself properly in English-Language.

If that’s the case for you, then you need to find someone who can help you correct any grammatical errors that may likely be found in your application. You wouldn’t want to submit an application that’s not legible.

Furthermore, the information you provide in the application form must be free from any form of manipulations or falsification on information – as every data provided will be verified by a Fiverr expert.

But before applying, the question you must ask yourself is: Are you really a professional? If the answer is yes, do you have any evidence to prove that?

If you do, then there’s no problem – you can go on and apply. Just be ready to present enough evidence to back your claims. Either through your past projects with big time clients; your professional accounts with Dribble, Stackoverflow, Vimeo, etc.; or your social accounts with Linkedin, Instagram, Facebook, etc.

You may not get approved first time, if you don’t provide enough evidence to back your astuteness, maybe because you were not well prepared for the screening. However, you can always reapply and be accessed afresh. But next time, make sure you are well prepared before applying.

Another factor that can improve your chances of getting approved for Fiverr pro is if you already have a regular Fiverr gig that has completed a lot of projects and has a lot of positive feedback. That gig can serve as your portfolio and improve your chances of getting quick approval for a fiverr pro account.
