Status & Unbiased Information

We spend time researching so you don't need to. Does Upwork Affiliate Program exist? Is it abandoned, temporarily offline or did they stop accepting new affiliates? What are the alternatives?

About The Affiliate Program:

Does Upwork have an affiliate marketing program?

Unfortunately, no, Upwork does not have an active public affiliate marketing program that pays cash.

inactive

They have "Bring Your Own Freelancer" and "Bring Your Own Client" features currently available for some users. However, they don't function as an affiliate program that pays real cash.

There was an oDesk Affiliate Program before. It was first announced in 2009.

So, what are your options?

About The Company:

Upwork, formerly Elance-oDesk, is a global freelancing platform where businesses and independent professionals connect and collaborate remotely.

In 2015, Elance-oDesk was rebranded as Upwork. It is based in Santa Clara and San Francisco, California. The full name is Upwork Global Inc.

Upwork has twelve million registered freelancers and five million registered clients. Three million jobs are posted annually, worth a total of US$1 billion, making it the largest freelancer marketplace in the world.

Upwork was formed 18 months after Elance and oDesk announced their merger on December 18, 2013 to create Elance-oDesk.

Elance was founded in 1998 by MIT graduate, Beerud Sheth, and Wall Street veteran, Srini Anumolu in a two-bedroom apartment in Jersey City.

oDesk was founded in 2003 by two friends, Odysseas Tsatalos and Stratis Karamanlakis who wanted to work together even though one of them was in the U.S., and the other was in Greece. They created oDesk to allow them to do it.

Income tip for website owners:

APDB Team recommends diversification in two ways.

First, within your affiliate links. Try various affiliate programs simultaneously and do not stick with one only. For example, Amazon can slash its rates even further tomorrow. Be prepared for unforeseen risks. Check the affiliate training & tools to become a super affiliate.

Second, use display ads near your affiliate links. Google AdSense is the go-to source for many. However, AdSense provides one of the lowest RPMs (page revenue per thousand impressions) in the industry. There is a legit way to triple (yes, 3X, and even more) your AdSense income.
