How to make a referral
You’ll make a personal email introduction copying in our firstname.lastname@example.org email address. You can use one of our suggested emails below.
Please introduce us to Partners/Principals only. We meet many young lawyers and practice managers who are excited about Smarter Drafter but unfortunately do not have the authority to make decisions about the firm’s purchasing choices. For this reason, the Referral Program only applies to introductions made to a firm’s decision makers. Typically, they have job titles like Partner, Principal, Director, CEO, or they are a sole practitioner.
If you’d like to do a bulk mail-out to your database (e.g. 100+ recipients) our marketing team will assist you.
What constitutes a successful referral
Our subscribers have a 30-day free trial in which they can find out if Smarter Drafter is a fit for their firm. A successful referral is when the law firm you referred continues past this period.
Because so many people are saying nice things about Smarter Drafter, sometimes we receive introductions to law firms with whom we are already engaged in conversations. As much as we would like to, we can’t pay referral fees for introductions when this happens. We’ll aim to let you know within a few days of your introduction to avoid disappointment.
When your rewards are distributed
Once the referred firm commits, we’ll let you know that your referral was successful. For subscribers who are paying annually, you’ll receive the full referral fee after the 30-day period has ended. For subscribers who are paying monthly, you’ll receive the first 3 months’ referral fee after the 30-day period has ended, and then receive a payment for every month after that until the end of their first year. All payments will go in your nominated bank account. Personal rewards are sent to your address of choice and are processed once your referred law firms commits.
Other things to consider
Multiple prompts can reignite interest. We find that excited lawyers take a subscription with us within two weeks. Conversely, we see an introduction as “going cold” if there is no interest from the lawyer you introduced us to after 30-days. For this reason, for the purposes of the Referral Program, we typically consider introductions to have expired after 30-days, although we can extend this at our discretion. You’re welcome to make multiple prompts to the lawyer you’ve introduced us to in order to reignite their interest.
