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.
Thou shalt stick to facts
It doesn’t matter if you don’t achieve your targets – we’ll pass on some of our own leads to you if it comes down to it – but please – never get into the subjective interpretation of facts. It’s always a tragic comedy. Tragic because of how it ends, and comic because of how we end up laughing at the way the half-truths and lies that tend to come back and take a big bite out of the shadowy places of our partners. It happens always and we’re quite clear about what we’d do if facts and risks are misinterpreted or misstated. So don’t say a word that’s outside the domain of fact.
Thou shalt not defraud
Yes, we’re repeating ourselves here – but it seems to be necessary, especially in the light of the Wells Fargo tragic comedy that’s playing on the global markets in 2016. Check it out here – it’s absolutely tragic and it is unbelievably hilarious at the same time, the way Wells Fargo has just executed a perfect Enron-style hara-kiri. We like our stomachs to be seamless – and we have worked quite hard to keep it that way. So it is needless to say that we expect you to follow all regulatory compliance requirements that we will make you aware of at the time of your onboarding as a partner.
Thou shalt disclose risks
Having been in the market for as long as we have, we know that a lot of folks don’t really understand that a call is sans obligation while a put isn’t. This is just one of the multitude of risks that customers face 86,400 times, every single day – every single second! Since we’re in the business of putting smiles on their faces, we would like not to make them frown because we (through you as our representative) did not make them aware of the risks that they’re about to take.
Thou shalt not have conflict of interest
Yes, we’re saying it – if you’re in the business of suggesting and/or evaluating investment avenues, please don’t be the same person who suggests the prospective customer which subscription to take up. While we cannot enforce it before there’s an event, we’d like you to be aware that we’ll have provisions against this if you’re abusing your position to make money. It’s good business not to, and it’s great business to see everyone smile. So please don’t have conflicts of interest when bringing us customers.
Thou shalt screen customers too
Let’s face it – we’re paying you a commission for a lifetime on the revenues generated by each customer you bring in. So it is not too much to expect you to do a little background check to make sure there are no large jaws behind our backs at any given point in time, asking us if we knew we were providing investment opportunities to folks with terrorist links – or something like that. We live in very troubled times and we’d like both you and ourselves to steer clear of trouble as much as possible.
Thou shalt swear by your money
We collect a US$20,000 security deposit from all partners and a sworn affidavit that they agree to abide by our compliance requirements on the pain of forfeiture of said deposit.
Thou shalt keep secrets
Both the customers’, as well as ours. By being a partner, you will have privileged access to the complete details of GoldCrudeResearch’s business. Hence, you will be bound by a Non-Disclosure Agreement, as well as a No-Compete agreement for a period of 2 years after your rescinding the partnership. Breach of these will result in both legal action, as well as termination of the partner contract and forfeiture of the security deposit
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.
