Become Partner

Partner Program

Call it partner, call it affiliate, the objective is the same – to give you incentive to bring us more faces to put smiles upon. Let’s face it – there’s no greater joy than that of a little more money – Yes, we have values and standards to live by but who wouldn’t be happier if they were richer? We call it the MHB – or Maslow’s Hierarchy Boost. Once you’re reassured about your physiological and security needs, you can keep your focus on the self-actualization and finally the dream goal of the sixth step – Transcendence.
Coming back to money, you get us customers and we’ll pay you for it – but there’s a catch. It’s our values and standards that we live by.

Pre- conditions

  • Thou shalt stick to facts
  • Thou shalt not defraud
  • Thou shalt disclose risks
  • Thou shalt not have conflict of interest
  • Thou shalt screen customers too
  • Thou shalt swear by your money
  • Thou shalt keep secrets

5 Ws and H

Quite simple – we give you complete knowledge of how we bring smiles to our customers. You spread the word and we’ll pay you for life. You can get up to 40% of the post-tax profits on the revenues generated by each of the customers you bring in. It’s almost sweat equity.

You, if you have knowledge and experience in our lines of business and have the investment potential required to generate business for us. If you think you’d be able to by making a few high-pressure sales pitch videos and slick looking landing pages, we’d like to inform you otherwise. We’re not the digital product that affiliate marketers gush over. There’s a significant opportunity for profiting, as well as significant risk and compliance requirements as well.

All over the world – but firstly where we have support services, but we’re not restrictive. So long as the laws of the land allow for our signals and services to be delivered, it is a geography we’d be interested in. Furthermore, if you can make it worth our while, we’ll also provide niche services to the customers you bring in, from support to even tailored products and services.

Right after we verify your candidature and you pass the interviews and background checks.

You make an application online here, along with a resume and a brief explanation about why you want to become a GoldCrudeResearch partner. The reason we ask this is because our subscriptions are pretty niche and require a lot of explanation and answering of questions on the fly. All of our training may not prepare you for the torrent of questions from prospective customers. So we tend to prefer those with a strong background in investment, investment advisory, brokerage and similar lines of business.
Once your resume is shortlisted, we’ll conduct a couple of interviews, one with one of our senior service delivery managers, followed by a top-management interview. If you get their recommendation, you get your partner kit which comprises the following:

  •   Corporate membership as a partner – this includes ‘p-‘ email id, a customized microsite, and access to our cloud-based tools
  •   Marketing tools – customizable brochures, flyers, emailers, slide-decks, and other printable material that you can use
  •   Digital assets to help you set up your own website, social media presence etc.
  •   Dedicated support – partners have a dedicated support team for themselves to get answers quickly and efficiently. Since the importance is timeliness, we also extend support via instant messenger on Google Talk, Skype, WhatsApp, Facebook messenger and Windows Live.
