Unfortunately, no, we do not yet have an affiliate program, but it is something that has been suggested, so it may be considered at some point.
Please. Please. Please. Set up an affiliate program. It's fairly easy to set up using ClickFunnels. I hate recommending other services just to use an affiliate link. Especially when I get all my work from Upwork.
Just checking to see if there is a program yet? Even fivver has a referral program that pays a flat rate commission for every first time buyer you send them.
At present I am not aware of any immediate plans of an affiliate program being developed, however I'm happy to share feedback about continued (and recent) requests including yours for this feature with the team.
i have just referred a friend to one of the upwork freelancers i use and she has signed up to upwork and will use my freelancer.. you NEED to setup an affiliate program to make this more interesting for those of us that are bringing people to your site.
I see many people have been asking the same question and they always get the same answer. Hardly an incentive for us to help your business grow.
Please take this request seriously and under consideration, it's not that difficult to get set up and is a multi faceted win all around.
I would be singing a lot more about upwork (to non friends) if there was an incentive.
Thanks for understanding the importance of such a feature.
I have referred many people to upwork in past years, but have stopped specifically due to the lack of any benefit to me for doing so.
I recommend you look at Digital Access Pass.
It is an awesome and easy to setup affiliate and product management program that operates as a WordPress plugin.
So, you could setup affiliates.upwork.com using that and be up and running in days.
It's affiliate model is a flat business model, as well, so no complex compensation schemes.
They provide the absolute best customer service and support that I've experienced in my 20 year internet marketing career and will install and configure it for you.
Their $39/month platinum plan is the best, because it provides the most integrations and access to all of their additional addons. Way cheap for what you end up getting!
