Fiverr Unveils Breakthrough Achievement Recognition Celebrating Freelancers Who Surpassed $1 Million in Revenue


Freelancers from North America, Europe and Asia who have amassed more than $5 million in revenue will receive a platinum Fiverr award recognizing their outstanding achievement

NEW YORK, July 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fiverr (NYSE: FVRR), the company that is changing how the world works together, today announced the launch of its first-ever Breakthrough Achievement recognition to celebrate outstanding freelance accomplishment. Once a year, on a rolling basis, freelancers surpassing $1 million in lifetime Fiverr earnings will be honored with a personalized gold award while freelancers earning over $5 million in revenue will receive a prestigious, personalized platinum award for their remarkable achievement.

The new recognition serves as a testament to the power of freelancing for those seeking to build their own career or business and comes at a critical juncture in the future of work. As the freelance movement gains momentum among professionals, businesses are increasingly turning to freelance talent to ignite transformative growth and access a diverse range of skills. In fact, according to research conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services and Fiverr Business Solutions, freelancers account for nearly 20% of an organization’s workload and output and will account for half of the workforce by 2027. Fiverr’s newest Breakthrough Achievement recognition serves as a means to recognize and highlight the trailblazers who have helped pave the way for others to succeed within today’s bustling freelance economy.

"Every day, we find inspiration in the dedication and passion that freelancers bring onto our platform,” said Micha Kaufman, CEO and Founder of Fiverr. “We want to acknowledge their relentless commitment to building lives that they want to live and how they continue to serve as the cornerstone of both Fiverr and the freelance ecosystem as a whole. As the freelance movement continues to grow, we are humbled to be working in partnership with skilled freelancers and businesses to create new avenues of equitable growth and opportunity across the world.”

Hailing from 35 countries around the world, Fiverr’s 2024 Breakthrough Achievement recipients showcase the career and business opportunities that continue to grow and the top industries where they experienced success. Top industries include graphics and design, digital marketing, and writing and translation. Technical careers in video and animation, programming and tech, and music and audio were also included in the top industries where freelancers thrived.

  • Aditya Gupta, an India-based Shopify-certified partner who is making 200x more than her previous monthly revenue with Fiverr
  • Beau Vallis, a US-based, Grammy-nominated music engineer, who spent countless overnight hours in the studio and took control of his time and career with Fiverr
