Expert Partners:

MindMeister’s Expert Partner program was developed for consultants and trainers who recommend MindMeister to their customers and provide training workshops and product demonstrations. Benefits of being a certified Expert Partner include a free MindMeister Pro account, a personal discount code connected with a referral commission, early access to beta features, support for workshops and marketing campaigns, and much more. 

If you’re interested in becoming an Expert Partner, please review our partner guide and then use this form to apply for the program.

Once you’re officially certified as a MindMeister Expert, your partner manager will grant you access to the Expert Partner area in the partner portal, where you can track your referrals and manage your commission, among other things.

Reseller Partners:

Software vendors and similar companies who wish to resell MindMeister licenses can join our Reseller Program. Resellers can achieve a revenue share from 10% to 60% depending on sales targets. 

If you’re interested in becoming a MindMeister Reseller, please use the form on our Reseller Page to get in touch with us. 

Once you’ve signed the Reseller Agreement, your partner manager will grant you access to the Reseller Partner area in the partner portal, where you can generate coupon codes for your customers.

 

Tip:

It is possible to be an Affiliate, an Expert and a Reseller Partner at the same time, as long as you qualify for all programs.

Experts: How to Track Your Referrals and Manage Your Commission

Once you have been officially certified as an Expert Partner, you will receive access to the Expert Partner area in the partner portal. To visit the portal:

  1. Click on your user avatar in the upper right corner of your dashboard and select Partner from the popover menu. 
  2. Navigate to the Expert Partner area.

Your personal discount code will appear in the EPC tab (short for Expert Partner Commission). You can give this code to your customers, trainees and website visitors to provide them with a (non-recurring) discount on MindMeister’s paid plans. Whenever somebody uses the code to upgrade to a paid account, you will receive a 20% referral commission of the sale, as well as all future payments the customer makes. 

In the EPC tab you can also track how often your discount code has been used for paid upgrades by customers, as well as the total amount of commission you’ve earned so far.

Once your commission has reached a total of 150$ (or the equivalent of this amount in your currency), you can request to be paid out via your PayPal account. There are two ways to do this:

  1. Automatically: Enter your PayPal address into the designated field and click Save, then click Request Payout.
  2. Manually: If you require an invoice for bookkeeping, you can send an invoice to support@mindmeister.com to request your payout. Be sure to include your PayPal address on the invoice, and send it from the email address you use to log in to MindMeister.
