Why you should join the QuickBooks Business Affiliate Program

Do small business owners and entrepreneurs come to you for advice on running their businesses more efficiently? If you’re constantly sharing tips with your audience on bookkeeping, filing taxes, and processing payroll, it’s about time you get rewarded for your efforts.

What better way than earning a referral bonus when you share your personal recommendations with your community of followers?

With the QuickBooks Business Affiliate Program, you can easily promote your affiliate link with your network and track your earnings. 

What are the benefits of the affiliate program? 

We know you’re busy running your own business, so we’ve made it super-easy for you to participate in the QuickBooks Business Affiliate Program.

What’s in it for you? There are a few key reasons to consider jumping on board:

  • You can provide added value to your customers who are looking for a financial management system to assist them with managing their business.
  • Your network can grow their business while they let the money management tool take care of their finances.
  • You can build your credibility and increase your authority with your network.
  • This will help you build stronger relationships with your small business customers and attract new business owners.
  • It’s one of the best deals in the market, year-round! You get the opportunity to provide your customers with a special discount of 80% off a new QuickBooks subscription for 6 months.* Plus, you could earn cash rewards of up to $250 for each new confirmed subscription.

Ultimately, it’s a win-win situation for you and your network. But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s a testimonial from one of our partners:

"Being a part of the QuickBooks Business Affiliate Program for the last 3 years has been an incredible experience. QuickBooks has been a pivotal partner who has consistently provided us with exceptional support and resources. We truly value our partnership and recommend others to join the program."

Who is eligible to apply? 

If you’re someone with great influence or you’ve got a loyal following online, chances are you’re familiar with affiliate marketing. But how do you know if you’ll be a good fit? Basically, if your organization provides support for Canadian businesses, it’s worth taking the time to apply for the program. 

We’re looking for associations, business services (such as ones that help newcomer entrepreneurs), insurance providers, and financial institutions, just to name a few. Whether you have a niche following or massive community, we welcome businesses from all backgrounds to apply.

What are the steps to apply?

It's simple to join the program.

Step 1: Fill out the application form

We’re excited to learn about your business. We know you’re busy juggling many priorities — so, no long essay required. It only takes a few minutes to apply. 

Step 2: Receive an email notification 

We do our best to review all applications in a timely manner. Due to the high volume of applications, you can expect to receive an email within 5 business days. This will confirm whether you’ve been approved for the program. 

Step 3: Share your link to earn rewards

Once you’re approved, you’ll receive an email that contains your unique referral link, which you can start sharing with your network.

This link will bring your audience to an offer page where they can choose between QuickBooks Online or QuickBooks Self-Employed at a special discount.

The terms of the discount and rewards will be provided to you once you accept the invitation.

Best practices for promoting your affiliate link

Once accepted into the program, you’ll have access to all the marketing materials (including logos and key messages) you’ll need to help spread the word about QuickBooks with your network. 

The sky’s the limit when it comes to sharing your affiliate link. Whether it’s through your website, blog posts, email marketing campaigns, or social media channels, you can decide which path you’ll take to promote your affiliate link. 

Receive rewards and strengthen your relationships 

When your organization is already helping Canadian business owners optimize their business operations, it makes sense to receive a bonus reward for something you’re already doing. 

Not only will you help improve their business by saving them time and money, but you will also increase your authority as a subject matter expert and trustworthy figure within your industry.
