Smartcat’s referral program allows freelancers to earn up to $250 for bringing a new customer to the platform. Specifically, you’ll earn:
- $50 when a language service company or another business that needs translation services signs up as a corporate user of Smartcat using your personal referral link.
- $200 more when the company either subscribes to one of our paid plans or spends $5,000+ on our other paid offerings.
How do I refer a customer?
- Log in to your freelancer workspace in Smartcat.
- Note: if you are currently in a corporate account, click on your userpic in the top-left corner to switch to the freelancer workspace.
- In the menu, click Refer a client.
- On the page that opens, you will find your unique referral link.
- Click COPY TO CLIPBOARD.
- Share the link across your channels. Here are some ideas:
- Send an email or a message containing your referral link to an agency you work with outside Smartcat, or any other translation customer. You can use our case studies to showcase how Smartcat can be of help to that customer.
- Have a blog? Write an article about Smartcat and add your referral link.
- Are you active on social media? Make a post on your personal page or in a professional group.
- Add the link to your email signature.
What will the referred company have to do?
- The company should register in Smartcat:
- As a corporate user,
- Using your referral link,
- Using a valid company email address, website, and phone number.
- We will contact the company to qualify the user, i.e. make sure that:
- They are a language service company OR a business that potentially needs translation/localization services,
- They are not a freelancer AND not a business that doesn’t need translation/localization services.
- They are a new customer, i.e. they have not been previously registered in Smartcat,
If these conditions are fulfilled, you will be paid your first bonus.
When and how exactly will I get the bonus?
- You will receive $50 on your freelancer account balance once we have qualified the company as per the section above.
- You will receive $200 more if the company subscribes to the Essential, Smart, or Custom plan OR spends $5,000 on any of Smartcat’s paid offerings.
- You will not receive the bonus if we have not qualified the company as per the section above.
- You can use the bonus(es) to either purchase any of Smartcat services — e.g. MT or OCR — or just withdraw the money using any of the available methods.
- Bonuses for referrals that have been qualified in the current month are paid after the 15th of the following month but not later than the end of that month.
