July 31, 2018

NEW YORK, July 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fiverr, the world’s largest marketplace of creative and digital services for businesses of all sizes today announced dramatic growth numbers for the first year of the Pro tier on the Fiverr marketplace. The professional tier has exceeded 400 percent growth since the start of 2018 and expanded its reach to nearly 50 percent of Fiverr categories, all while becoming a go-to resource for larger businesses. In the second quarter of 2018 alone, businesses with over 25 employees have increased their spend on Pro services by almost 12 times their first quarter levels.

“We launched Fiverr Pro to take our marketplace’s speed and efficiency and apply it to the kinds of high-end professional work so many businesses need today,” said Micha Kaufman, CEO of Fiverr. “In just a year, we’ve seen thousands of businesses get their projects done on Fiverr Pro, and increasingly we see larger businesses tap the marketplace for major work. Our goal is to make working with the top talent in the world as simple and as fast as possible. That means investing in and innovating around the platform that continues to bring that vision to life.”
