Our most active partner earns over $25,000 a year in commissions as a result of selling Contactually, and has referred over 200 customers to our service. We’re here to help you get to that level.
The Certified Partner Program requirements
The requirements to be a part of our partner program are as follows:
- You must have substantial experience with Contactually (and preferably knowledge about CRMs in general), both when it comes to your own business and when you’re facing externally.
- You should bake Contactually and the importance of CRMs/technology systems into your methodology/teachings with your clients or audience.
- When possible, you should create a set of buckets and follow-up rules, email templates, and Programs, in accordance with your teachings and methodology, that will automatically be placed into your referrals’ accounts. This is a new key initiative that will help with your referrals’ adoption of our platform.
To be a Certified Partner, you must:
- Watch our videos outlining all of our features and how they work here and maintain a relationship grade in Contactually of an A or more.
If you have any questions/concerns about these requirements, don’t hesitate to reach out to email@example.com.

You can also use that in tandem with your referral link to drive traffic to either your co-branded homepage or your custom landing page.

The Certified Partner Education Course
All Contactually partners will be required to watch the following videos and maintain a Relationship Grade of an A or above in Contactually. This is so that you know how to properly leverage our platform for your own business, and can then take your extensive knowledge of our features and benefits combined with your own methodology and best practices to create passionate Contactually users.
You can access the videos here.
This course is a work in progress. All of the Contactually-centric parts of the course are ready to go now. This includes an overview of the following:
- Dashboard tour
- Contact management overview
- Email templates
- Article sharing
Once you watch the videos, please send me a screenshot of your Relationship Grade. After verifying your Relationship Grade, I’ll send you your Contactually Certified Partner badge and add you to the certified partner directory (when available).
Note: This education course is not designed to inhibit your reselling efforts, but rather to make sure that you have most knowledge about Contactually as possible. If you have any questions or concerns about the course, please let me know.
Your referral links and custom partner landing pages
Most (if not all) of you already have a Contactually referral link that drives your audience to a co-branded version of our homepage (see here for an example). We’ll continue using these co-branded homepages in addition to new custom partner pages that you can also use to drive traffic and registrations through your link.
You can see an example of one of our customizable partner pages at /partners/bookyourselfsolid.
You’ll have the ability to customize or choose from the following on your partner page:
- Header image (the blue gear wheel you see)
- Contactually’s + your logo
- Headline and sub-headline
- Content section, with images (like your headshot) and text explaining why you’re passionate about Contactually and how it will help your audience
- 3-4 feature and benefit descriptions. Choose from:
- Automated contact management
- Dashboard / follow-up modal
- Contact profile
- Social media integrations
- Email templates
- Article sharing
- Lead capture
- Mobile applications
- Closing section headline and text
If you’re interested in creating your own customized partner page, please let us know and we can help you put it together.

Once Penny, our support manager, has set up your referral URL, let’s schedule a 15-30 minute call so I can learn about you and your business, and see how Contactually and the Partner Program fits in. Please shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a few dates/times that work for you.
