We all know about Fiverr and how it has emerged as one of the largest Freelance marketplaces. Well, they have recently launched their Premium service called “Fiverr Pro”. Fiverr Pro allows only a number of handpicked freelancers to join their platform. Once you become a member you will get a Pro label on the Fiverr website. This is especially good news for hardworking freelancers who have built their portfolio over the time. This is actually their way of rewarding those hard working experts by distinguishing them from other regular members.

The biggest benefit of becoming a Fiverr Pro member is you will be able to communicate with professional buyers. You will have the opportunity to work on high paying projects.
