Got some pretty big news.
We’ve opened up the Empire Flippers Referral Program for applications!
We had a really successful pilot launch and decided that this thing is ready to go.
We built this because, over the years, members of the EF and general online business M&A communities have helped keep the cogs of this small industry turning by spreading the word of what we all do.
There are some especially influential voices who have been contributing the most to this word-of-mouth growth.
So many deals across the industry and in our marketplace have come from these people, but they’ve never been rewarded for their efforts.
We decided to change that.
To encourage the growth of our small, but mighty industry, we’ve created the Empire Flippers Referral Program to finally give you a fair cut of the deals you make happen.
You get 20% of the commission we make on the sale of a business you refer to us. Flat rate. For any size business.
So, to put that into perspective, our average listing price is around $1.2M. For a deal that size, we’d take a 12.08% commission, which is $145,000. Your commission would be 20% of that, so $29,000.
But, it doesn’t stop there.
If the same lead buys or sells another one, two, three, or even more businesses within two years after they’ve been referred, you’ll earn commissions on all of those deals!
Our engineering team has built out an intuitive platform so you can track your referrals. And you’ll have your own Marketplace Wallet that you can use to withdraw your funds in just a click.
Of course, we all only want high-quality, honest deals to happen in our industry. So these referral partnerships have to be the right fit.
We’re really looking for top-end partnerships to do solid content collaborations and other co-marketing activities.
So for those who can do that, we want to hear from you!
It’s real easy to get started.
Just fill out a form to join the waiting list and we’ll take it from there.
Looking forward to seeing your application!

P.S. If you’re a brand with an audience, an agency that has clients wanting to exit, a service provider, an influencer, an online course creator, or you’re part of an online entrepreneur community, then you’re in a great position to help make successful investments and life-changing exits happen. And actually get rewarded for it!
I mean, we’ve seen other referral programs in our industry. They’re all loosely tracked because they only use email. They just don’t work well.
This is something we’ve built out really well and even dedicated part of our marketing team to run.
So, if you’re interested, you can learn a bit more about the details of the program here and I hope you sign up!
