The Knowify Advisor Program or Construction Company Advisor Network (the “Program”) is offered by Knowify, LLC (“Knowify”). Under the Program, you will be able to earn certain referral fees or discounts for leads you introduce to Knowify, subject to the terms of this Agreement.
Participation in the program
Knowify may accept or reject any application at its sole discretion.
In consideration of fees or discounts offered to you under this Agreement, you agree engage in continued, active promotion of Knowify in various marketing channels using the Licensed Marks and Marketing Materials (as defined in section 9 below), and do so in compliance with the terms of this Agreement.
As a consequence of your activities under the Program, you may refer clients to Knowify (the “Referrals”). Knowify may provide you with a unique url to track your referrals (the “Referral URL”). If you include the Referral URL on your website to forward users to Knowify’s website, you must market Knowify in such a manner that a third-party is knowingly forwarded to the Knowify website. You may not provide third-parties with any information regarding the delivery and costs of Knowify services unless specifically approved by Knowify in advance and in writing.
Program tiers and referral fees
The Program is composed of the two tiers detailed below. Participation in the Program will be at your expense and Knowify will only pay the fees described in each tier (the “Referral Fees”).
Non-certified tier: Referral only
- Commission: 50% of the subscription revenue received by Knowify from the referred client’s account for the initial four (4) months. After the initial four (4) months, no further Referral Fees will be earned by you. You earn the commissions AFTER the client pays eight (8) months.
- Advisor Responsibilities: Refer the client. All further onboarding/support will be provided by Knowify.
- Requirement: None. This program is for Advisors that have not passed Knowify’s Advisor Certification test
Certified tier: Discount + Support
- Discount: 20% discount code for unlimited time for your customers. The discount will apply only to the price of the subscription tier selected by the customer and, therefore, will not apply to any additional users or services associated with that subscription tier. No Referral Fees will be earned by you.
- Advisor responsibilities: Refer, onboard, and support the client. Knowify Customer Service will remain available to assist, but you will be expected to assume the majority of the workload related to implementation and support.
- Requirement: Passing Knowify’s Advisor Certification test.
All the Program’s tiers include also access to Knowify’s Advisor portal and a free Knowify account for training purposes.
