Here's how it works

  1. Identify a client or personal contact you know could benefit from a professional online presence. See below for what makes a perfect Thrive client.
  2. Send an email to them introducing us and CC [email protected]. Use the script at the bottom of this page if you like.
  3. 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.
  4. If we are a mutual match, we’ll create a custom proposal for them to consider.
  5. If they move forward we'll send you 10% of the revenue of the initial website build!

Why it works

Hint: people love us

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 (see  below) 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.

The right people

Who makes a great referral?

Our “Perfect Client” has been in business for at 3 least years and has at least $500k revenue or more per year. They provide an amazing service and would like to show their authority & expertise online.

Thrive's core offer is an Authority Website that compels website visitors to contact the company. Add-ons include branding, copywriting, SEO, PPC, and photography.

Of course, if you plan on providing any of these services to the client please let us know so that we stay in our lane!

Our best clients value expertise, are coachable, provide an excellent service, and are passionate about what they do. We only want to take on projects we can knock out of the park!

Do you know someone like this? We’d love to meet them.

Frequently asked Questions

How do payments work?

Within 15 days of receiving full payment from your referral, we’ll pay you 10% of the revenue from the initial website build. Payment is available via credit card, paypal, venmo, or payoneer.

What if I refer you a client that signs for $100,000?

Congratulations, you just made $10,000 in commission.

Will you write a proposal for every referral I send you?

We write proposals for approximately 42% of prospects that come to us via referral. We only work on projects we know we can truly make massive impact on. Some projects seem great, while others just 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 also let you know.

If a lead I send you isn't a good fit, what do 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 do a good job with referral I send 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. That means putting in our best efforts to deliver an amazing outcome.

We take your trust in us seriously and want only the best for the people you refer to us.

Can I see some of your work?

Yes you definitely can! You're more than welcome to check out our case studies.

Do you have an example email script I can send?

Definitely. You can use this as is or season to taste. Don't forget to CC [email protected] on the email.
