- What is the difference between an affiliate and a partner?
An affiliate is low-involvement, casual promoter of WORKetc and earns a 15% commission.
A partner is a high-involvement, consultative promoter with an existing customer base (think 1000+ customers) and actively works to sell WORKetc to their customer base, including doing demonstrations and offering consulting advice. A partner typically has a large regional or industry-specific customer base or a software product where integration is a smart move for everyone.
- Why do I need a WORKetc account to become an affiliate?
We believe that to sell WORKetc you need to be a champion for WORKetc and the best way of doing this is to be an actual WORKetc customer.
We don't want people out there selling WORKetc when they don't actually
use it to run their own business; it isn't exactly a good endorsement!
- Why do I need a partner WORKetc account to become a partner?
"Why do I need to pay money to become a WORKetc partner? Afterall, I'm bringing them business!!!"
We only want people that use WORKetc on a daily basis and truly understand its power, to be actively selling WORKetc. As such, partners already use WORKetc to manage their own business and already have deep insight into how valuable WORKetc is to a business. WORKetc needs champions!
Requiring that all partners also be active WORKetc users keeps the opportunity exclusive. We don't want thousands of faceless web sites selling WORKetc, rather we want a small number of dedicated, true believers who see the partner program as a long-term opportunity; adding value to their business and their customers.
- How do I make money?
Affiliates earn a commission, every time a customer subscribes to a month of WORKetc access. Affiliates earn 15% commission for the first 12 months of a customer’s subscription.
This represents a significant opportunity for both Partners & Affiliates to earn recurring (passive) income from continuing subscription fees.
Additionally, Partners are free to charge their end customers for training, support and consulting at their usual fees. This represents a significant opportunity for Partner to earn additional income.
NOTE: You can only earn commissions on customers that sign up using your affiliate link or coupon code. The system is fully automated and we cannot accommodate request to manually assign accounts.
- When and how do I get paid?
As you earn commissions, payments are first deducted against your WORKetc account and then once a surplus is achieved, paid out to your nominated account.
Payments are made monthly, provided an affiliate is due more than $100. Payments roll over each month until the pay out threshold is exceeded.
- Can I have exclusive rights to a territory or industry?
No, WORKetc does not offer exclusivity to partners or affiliates for any region or industry.
- Can WORKetc be rebranded to my business?
Partners can provide a logo and have the WORKetc interface co-branded.
- Are there any other conditions that I need to know about?
