You – and what you need to be successful!

Meaning, if you’re looking for new clients, want to meet fellow consultants, need a specific resource, or just want to talk something out – we’re here for you.

We’ll even keep you in the loop on industry events, meetups, and the latest small business tools. So, you can stay focused on helping small businesses.

Nope – you can always start in the Silver tier (which is 100% free) and work your way up by getting referrals!

When you get 5 referrals in a year, you’ll be invited to Gold – without needing to pay the $1,000 enrollment fee. And when you get 15 referrals in a year, you’ll be invited to Platinum – again, without needing to pay the $2,000 enrollment fee.

The application process isn’t to keep you out. It’s to make sure Process People is right for you – before you commit!

So, there are no trick questions or wrong answers. We just want to know a bit about your consulting business, who your target clients are, and why you want to be part of the community.

The application takes roughly 5 minutes to complete. And you’ll hear back from us within one business day. (Yup – it’s really that quick!)

After that, you’ll run through everything you need to know about Process People in Trainual (it takes about 5 minutes). Then, you’re in!

Absolutely! Process People is meant for any consultant who helps small businesses level up their processes (whether they’ve been doing it for a day or 10 years).

As of right now, all our events are virtual. But once we feel it’s 100% safe to do so, we plan on offering in-person events as well as virtual ones.

When you refer someone to Trainual, you get a percentage of the profits every time they’re billed.

The percentage you get depends on the tier you’re at when the commission pays out:

  • Silver gets 10% commission
  • Gold gets 15% commission
  • Platinum gets 20% commission

But here’s the catch! It pays to stay active (literally). Meaning, if you don’t refer a Trainual customer for 12 months, you’ll stop receiving commissions on past referred accounts.

You’ll get paid around the 10th of each month for any of your referrals billed in the prior month. Partnerstack (AKA our affiliate platform) will notify you when you get paid and prompt you to transfer the money into your bank account.

It depends. If you worked your way up to your current tier, you’re there for life!

But if you paid for your status, you can be reset to Silver if you don’t pay your annual renewal fee and don’t have enough referrals to stay at that tier.

You only have to pay the renewal fee if you have not gotten enough referrals to stay at your current tier.

For example, if you paid to be at Gold. But you only have 3 referrals so far. You will need to pay the $1,000 annual fee, or you’ll get dropped back down to Silver.

However, if you paid to be at Gold. And you have 5 referrals. You can stay at that tier without paying the annual fee.
