The Top 10 Best Practices For Success In The PRO Program
Tips that make a difference to you and your clients
First of all, congratulations on deciding to participate in the TSheets PRO Program.
Why the congratulations? Well, it just so happens that the TSheets PRO Program can make a big difference to your business and your clients’ businesses. TSheets can help businesses simplify payroll and invoicing and help business owners make informed financial decisions – on top of accurate-to-the-second time tracking!
But first, we want to show you how to make the most of our PRO Program. Check out our top 10 tips below
The Pro Program was developed for just that reason — to help you and your clients succeed. How can you make the most of it? Follow the best practices below!
Know your affiliate link
Your affiliate link allows us to trace your referrals back to you! Making sure your link is accessible ensures you get credit for the clients you refer to TSheets, you get paid your 20 percent commission for each referral for the first year, and your referred clients get their 10 percent discount on TSheets! We recommend you print your affiliate link on business cards, link it to your PRO Badge on your email signature, and link to it anywhere else you display your badge. Some PROs even create web pages that feature information about TSheets and a link to start a free trial using their affiliate code (but more on that later).
Understand TSheets’ value proposition
Few people enjoy making, or being on the receiving end, of a sales pitch, which is why we don’t want you to sell TSheets. We believe we’ve created a product that recommends itself, especially when you understand just how easy and efficient mobile time tracking makes payroll, invoicing, billing, employee accountability, and time management. Before you start pitching TSheets, explore your free TSheets account, read about the signs that indicate your client could really benefit from mobile time tracking, and take a look at ourPayroll Savings Calculator, and familiarize yourself with the apps that integrate seamlessly with TSheets.
We’re here to help you get excited about everything TSheets has to offer, so your clients will get excited too!
Get comfortable with referring
Try not to think of yourself as a salesperson when it comes to referring TSheets and other top-rated third-party apps — because you’re not! Think of yourself as a trusted advisor who can add true value to your clients’ businesses because of the unique insight you have as their accountant or bookkeeper. Check out “How to Sell without Selling Out” to get a new perspective on what it means to refer apps to your clients!

Create an Affiliate Page
Set yourself up as a trusted advisor, not a salesperson, by creating an affiliate page where you list all the apps you recommend and trust, along with a short description of each and your affiliate codes. By showing your clients a network of apps that work well together and make their businesses run more smoothly, you’ll add even more value.
