How It Works
Once you sign up as an affiliate, you can start referring potential customers to us. Should someone you refer sign up for a monthly hosting, managed IT, or backup plan — or even just utilize us for special or one-off projects — every quarter, we’ll pay you a share of that monthly or one-time invoice. Below is an example of how the affiliate payments would add up for a fictional ParksideTech affiliate partner.
Stan Simon is a commercial real estate agent. He met us at a local networking event and had a client, McMurphey’s Auto Parts, he just sold a new warehouse to. McMurphey’s is in need of some IT work: they need help transitioning from their old office space over to their new warehouse. Prior to us bidding on the McMurphey job, Stan signed up as an affiliate. As we have our hands in a lot of small businesses, we felt Stan would be a good referral partner in case, during our monthly work with our own clients, we found one who was looking to upgrade their office space.
So, our bid on the McMurphey move was for $5,000.00 as it included pulling a lot of wire, setting up their servers and desktops, configuring their network and firewall protection, etc. As Stan is an affiliate, at the end of the quarter he earns 10% of that, or $500.
Over the course of the next 12 months, we get a few other referrals from Stan. (Plus, we referred a customer of ours over to him, and they’re now in a beautiful new space that’s double the size of their old location — and they’re paying less!). One of these referrals turned into both a new website design AND a monthly Managed IT Plan. From that one referral alone, Stan earned $680! (10% of the Website Design Plan 2 ($2,000) = $200 + 10% of the Managed IT Plan 2 ($800) for 6 months ($4,800) = $480). All for simply referring ONE customer to us! And don’t forget: that customer has a monthly Managed IT plan with us, so Stan will continue earning money, every quarter, for as long as that customer stays with us.
Below is a small chart of the affiliate earnings Stan would have received in 2017 based on his referred business.
