A week or so ago, I wrote our first article for this new feature offering we are calling the ‘Advisor Alliance’. These articles are not so much about a specific vendor’s product, as they are about the ‘relationship’ alliances these vendors offer to professional Advisors. As accountants, bookkeepers, and ProAdvisors you frequently find yourself placed in the position of recommending a specific product or solution to meet your client’s requirements. While professional ethics dictate that you make such recommendations, always in the best interest of your client, there is absolutely nothing wrong with having an ‘alliance’ of one form or another with the products you may recommend. Having multiple relationships with similar vendors, means that your recommendations can be even more objective, since you are not tied to a single provider.
With that caveat, let’s look at the “TSheets Pro” program. We all know that TSheets is an outstanding product which captures employee time and turns it into payroll within QuickBooks….it's ‘just almost’ that easy. TSheets eliminates duplicate time entry and prevents costly time related payroll errors. Becoming a TSheets Pro is just as easy because TSheets is dedicated to collaborating with CPAs, accountants, small business advisors and ProAdvisors ‘worldwide’. When you enter into the TSheets Pro ‘alliance’ you can look forward to a wealth of benefits for not only you, but your clients as well.
TSheets Pro’s receive a special promotion code, unique to the Pro that can be passed along to your clients so they can earn a 10% discount on their first year’s subscription to TSheets. Your clients will also benefit from the dedicated support and training you will receive as a TSheets Pro. Not only does this training provide you with the full scope of product implementation and support, but it also is designed to help you succeed in recommending TSheets to your clients. Each TSheets Pro is assigned their own dedicated Customer Manager who will insure that both you and your clients get the most from TSheets.
Now what good would it be for you to recommend a product, even one you have trained on, if you don’t use the product yourself? Well your TSheets Pro ‘alliance’ includes a free subscription to TSheets1 to not only provide a valuable resource for learning the product, but making your own practice ‘time keeping’ easier than ever. I don’t know about you, but when a client asks me about a time keeping APP, I think it really makes an impression if you can whip out your iPhone and show them how easy you track the time you are spending with them. Unfortunately the opposite is also true, how can you possibly expect to ‘sell your client’ on a timekeeping APP if you are pulling out a pen and pad and writing down your time at every visit.
All of these things, client discounts, training and support, and a free TSheets subscription of your own1, should be enough to convince you that you need to sign-up to be a TSheets Pro…..but as all those infomercials go ‘on and on’…..that isn’t all folks. The TSheets Pro ‘alliance’ offers a 20% revenue share for the first two years on all paying referrals. Yes, the opportunity to earn a commission on top of the other goodies I mentioned makes this ‘alliance’ even better. But….I will say it again folks….that’s still not all…..your status as a TSheets Pro will be promoted by TSheets in their newsletter, website and social media channels….in other words you are getting some great ‘free advertising’ for your practice.
So now that I have your interest, you are wondering just what it costs you to become a TSheets Pro….well, you won’t pay $99 per year, no you won’t even pay $49 per year, not $29 or even $19 per year….the cost of becoming a TSheets Pro is a big-fat ZERO, it is absolutely ‘free’. When did you even hear one of those infomercials end like that? Heck you won’t even see that kind of offer from the traveling sales guy at the state fair pushing the latest chop-n-dice-gadget! What are you waiting for? You need to sign-up today, and put another ‘advisor alliance’ under your belt, by getting started as a TSheets Pro.
