Partner Program FAQs
Q: How can I make money as a Center for Sales Strategy Partner?
- Reselling our online learning courses—you get a commission on every course you sell!

- Bundling our online courses with live workshops and charging a fee for the workshops.
Q: Can I charge whatever I want for services?
You can charge whatever you want to deliver distance meetings and live workshops bundled with our online courses; however, the online courses follow a set pricing structure published on our website. We recommend that you stick to that.
Q: Is it up to me to set whatever price I want to for the things I sell beyond the online courses?
Q: What is the Partner Program certification process?
We are happy to work with you to help establish your pricing strategy; however, final pricing decisions for anything you offer beyond online courses are up to you.
Our Partners follow these steps for certification:
- Sign up to become a Partner
- Take the online courses available in the Partner Toolkit
- Attend the next Foundations workshop to learn how to facilitate the workshops and distance meetings related to our online courses
- Pass an online assessment
- Receive certification and full access to Partner resources
Q: What is the Foundations workshop?
The Foundations workshop is a two day event held several times a year that is part of the Partner Program certification process. Foundations will equip Partners to be great trainers and facilitators of the resources available in the Partner Program. Participants will walk away from this workshop with the tools and facilitation tips needed to help sellers improve their sales performance.
Q: Why should I get certified? What value is there in that?
The certification process will improve your ability to understand the content so you can deliver live workshops and distance meetings to your customers—these workshops and distance meetings will improve your customers’ ability to sell and put more cash in your pocket!
