Fiverr & Steven Bartlett partner to support UK SMBs

Fiverr International Ltd. has unveiled its latest initiative, ‘Break The Breakthrough’, in partnership with Steven Bartlett. This campaign aims to bolster the growth of UK small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

The ‘Break The Breakthrough’ campaign by Fiverr introduces a contest open to UK residents aged 18 and above who own an established business. The opportunity offers a chance to win a professional consultation with Bartlett alongside Fiverr. Three selected winners will receive £10,000 in Fiverr Credits, personalised support from a Fiverr Customer Success Manager, and a 45-minute mentoring session with one of the UK's most celebrated entrepreneurs.

“We’re thrilled to be continuing our long-term relationship with Steven. His inspirational mentorship style and drive to help fellow entrepreneurs align with our mission to connect businesses with highly skilled professionals. Following rough economic headwinds, skills shortages and rising costs, UK businesses continue to face hurdles that impact their growth. This competition enables SMBs to get first-hand access to a powerhouse entrepreneur and specialised freelance consultation. We’re excited to see freelancers become indispensable partners for these SMBs, helping them in their breakthrough journey,” comments Bukki Adedapo, UK Country Manager at Fiverr.

Steven will collaborate with numerous UK SMB owners, assisting them in pinpointing their ultimate breakthrough goals, be it revenue growth or market expansion. He will guide them in recognising these objectives and crafting a targeted strategy to attain them. With Fiverr leading the initiative, Steven will provide businesses access to top freelance talent and expert mentorship, empowering them to realise their business breakthroughs.

“One of the most common mistakes I see business owners make is trying to take on everything themselves. Discovering Fiverr was transformative for me, every time I needed an expert or professional specialising in digital services it became my default marketplace. Rather than attempting to do things that are not in my skill set, I hired experienced freelancers in their field. As a result, I was able to accomplish more, and focus on growing my business,” said Steven Bartlett.

This collaboration is particularly timely, coinciding with Fiverr's significant platform update. The company has rolled out new features designed to give freelancers and businesses a competitive edge, including the introduction of Fiverr Agencies. Marking the first of two major product launches set for 2024, the Winter Product Release reflects Fiverr's commitment to innovation, shaped by 14 years of insights and feedback from the freelancers and businesses it supports.
