I have dealt with different referral programs over the years. They are all good. Any time you can get something free by referring someone to a program that you like, you should be rewarded.
Every program I have worked with has provided a one-time credit based on what the new client pays (There are some “affiliate” programs that pay whenever a referred client pays, but it is usually for a relatively small monthly fee. It doesn’t usually impact your overall budget unless you get a lot of them).
Our program is a true “reward” program. As with our “forever website”, the rewards are significant and stay with you as long as the referred client keeps paying.
It is entirely possible to add a lot of extra features to your marketing program and even get enough to offset your entire marketing budget if you take this seriously.
Here is how it works:
1. You refer a business you know. We need their contact information (Name, phone, email) and:
a. Business name
b. Business address, including country
c. Website address (if they have one)
d. Type of business (landscaper, store, etc.)
e. How you know them (customer, friend, etc.)
2. We will use your name when we contact them.
3. If we sell them anything, we will give you credit for extra marketing at a value of 20% of what the referred client is paying.
a. This will start after the referred client has paid for 3 months.
b. It will end if the client stops paying.
c. We will discuss what you would like to add to your program.
d. If your program is at the maximum amount that we recommend, we will credit your existing marketing program.
e. If you are at maximum credit (paying us ZERO), we will “bank” your credit toward a future change.
f. The credits cannot be used for “vendor” billed ads like Pay per click.
4. The credits will be paid “forever” until the referred client stops paying. This is great for everyone!
