If you’re a professional services provider, you may be facing the daunting challenge of trying to grow revenue. With much of your income potential directly tied to billable time, it can be tough to find enough hours in the day to increase income and expand profitability. It’s a problem many professionals such as business coaches, consultants, accountants, lawyers, and bookkeepers experience. How can you increase professional services revenue without getting burned out? Sure, hiring employees or using subcontractors can allow you to take on more work, but that can add substantial costs to your bottom line.
However, what if I told you there was another way to increase professional services revenue without adding overhead?
Ready for it…The CorpNet Partner Program
We created our program for business professionals like you. It’s flexible, simple to join, and free!
That’s right! We charge no setup or annual fees.
The CorpNet Partner Program Helps You Increase Your Revenue
You can partner with us and get wholesale discounted pricing as a white label Reseller of our business filing and corporate compliance services, or you can become a Referral Partner and refer your clients to us, receiving a referral fee for each sale.
Services that you can either resell or refer to us (in all 50 states!) to earn income include:
- LLC Formation
DBAs (also known as Fictitious Business Names)
- Foreign Qualification
- Business Name Searches, Reservations, and Registrations
- Initial Reports
- Annual Reports

- Other Annual Filings and Compliance Services
Before I go any farther, let’s address the elephant in the room right away. Some of you who aren’t attorneys might be wondering: Wouldn’t it be considered the practice of law to offer clients business incorporation and compliance filing services?
It is NOT considered the practice of law to file business registration and compliance paperwork on behalf of your clients. And, you may advise your clients on which entity to choose from the standpoint of your area of licensed expertise. For example, an accountant or tax advisor can offer insight from a tax implications perspective. Of course, if your clients need legal advice or tax advice, and you’re not qualified and credentialed to provide it, they should get guidance from a licensed professional when determining which entity they should choose. After they’ve gotten that direction, forms may be submitted by an attorney, the client, or the client’s representative (like you with the help of CorpNet). You can help your clients save time and money as you get the job done quickly and accurately through CorpNet’s services and seamless process. It’s a win for your clients, and for you, as you increase professional services revenue for your business.
6 Types of Professional Services Providers that Make a Great Fit
If any of the following types of professional services providers describe you, I hope you’ll consider applying to join.
- Business consultant or business coach
- Accountant or CPA
- Tax advisor or tax preparer
- QuickBooks advisor
Services professionals who offer advisory services to businesses are good candidates to participate. We screen prospects to ensure a good fit for program participants and CorpNet.
We require no minimum sales volumes to participate in the Partner Program, so there’s no pressure to perform. We have created our program to suit the needs of your business and your clients—at whatever capacity you’re able to handle.
How the CorpNet Reseller Program Works
When you sign on to as a CorpNet Reseller, you can increase your professional services revenue by offering to prepare and complete your clients’ business filings related to incorporation, the formation of an LLC, S Corp election, business license and permit applications, annual reports, and more. No matter in which state your clients are doing business, you’ll be able to submit filings through CorpNet on their behalf. We give you all the tools you need to ensure success—private label services, a dedicated account manager, and personalized service that’s accurate and fast. As your silent fulfillment partner, we will never contact your clients without your consent. We do all the work behind the scenes while YOU get the credit!
CorpNet Resellers get wholesale discounted pricing of up to 30 percent on our services.
All fees for all products and services published on the CorpNet.com website represent our retail rates. We can send wholesale pricing to you when you sign up for the program and after we’ve on-boarded you. You can then charge your clients whatever fees you see fit for the services that you order from us when serving your clients.
How the CorpNet Referral Program Works
As a CorpNet Referral Program partner, you can refer your clients to a trusted resource for incorporation, LLC filings, registered agent services, and annual corporate compliance and monitoring in any state. You refer the client to us; we’ll do all the work and send you a check (a referral fee of up to 30 percent of the value of the services ordered). Or, if you like, you can waive your commissions and have us pass the savings to your clients instead.
To make the referral process seamless, we will assign you a dedicated account manager, who will be responsive to your needs and treat your clients with exceptional service. Note that even though we are handling all orders directly with your customers, we are happy to keep you apprised of the status of your clients’ filings (with their permission, of course!).
The Best of Both Worlds
You may participate in just one or both programs. We let you choose what will optimize your clients’ experience and your opportunities to increase professional services revenue.
For instance, you might choose to be more hands-on and perform as a Reseller for key clients with whom you want to interact more frequently. And then, for transactional or lower-spend clients, perhaps the Referral option will make the most sense.
The choice is yours!
No Hassle Marketing
We realize that creating marketing collateral to promote services to clients can be a chore. That’s why we have materials readily available for you to download. We also give you access to using online marketing assets (like widgets and banners). No need to reinvent the wheel—our tried-and-true marketing pieces will help you get the word out.
Bonus Advantage: A Competitive Edge
Besides the additional earnings potential that our program provides, being a CorpNet Partner also delivers a bonus advantage: It can give you an edge over your competition. Knowing that you can satisfy more of their needs and simplify their lives, customers will have even more reason to seek your expertise. The more value you can provide to your clients, the more loyal they will be and the more they’ll recommend your services to other prospects.
