Here's How it Works
Identify a client or personal contact you know could benefit from a professional online presence.
Send an email to them introducing us and CC firstname.lastname@example.org. Use the script at the bottom of this page if you like.
We’ll reach out to your referral and take them through our education and sales process. We promise to honor their time and get very clear on what they need to satisfy their goals/problems.
If we are a mutual match, we’ll create a custom proposal for them to consider.
If they move forward we'll send you 10% of the revenue of the initial website build!
Why this Works
We love referrals—they let us concentrate more on doing great work and less on “hustling up” the next sale.
That’s why we’ve made the choice to incentivize our best clients and partners (that’s you!) to help us find other great businesses to work with.
When you refer your clients or friends to us, we’ll design a beautiful website that actually works—using a reliable & enjoyable process so that your referrals are happy every step of the way.
By sending us only the best referrals we'll be set up for success and you'll look like a connected superhero. Win win!
We understand that giving a referral is an endorsement and can put your reputation on the line. We'll take care of your referrals like they are family... including the tough love coaching that is sometimes required.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do payments work?Within 5 days of receiving a payment from your referral, we’ll pay you 10% of the revenue from the initial website build. Payment is available via Zelle, Paypal, Venmo or Cash App.
What if I refer a large client with a budget of $10,000 or more?Then you'll receive at least $1,000 in commission for your referral.
Will you write a proposal for every lead?We write proposals for approximately half of prospects that come to us via referral. Some people aren’t a good fit for us. We’ll let you know if we enter into an agreement with the business you referred. Likewise, if they are not a fit we'll let you know.
If a lead I send you isn't a good fit, what will you do?If we feel this lead is a fit for another agency in my network, your company and Thrive will split any commission that the third-party agency may send. Before we pass on the lead we’ll always check with you first to make sure this arrangement is acceptable.
Will you provide exceptional work to the people I refer you?Our mission is to empower companies we work with to live in a world of abundance. We promise to educate your referral and treat their company as if they were our own. We take your trust in us seriously and want only the best for the people you refer to us.
What kind of features and services does your company provide?Web design is our bread and butter but we also offer graphic/logo design, print media, mobile apps, SEO, social media management & more. You can view some of the industries we serve and features we provide here.
