- Task Meister Business Partners start in one of 3
- 1. Reseller If you or your firm is in
the business of reselling software, you're probably looking for ways to enhance
your offerings to include web services. Task Meister is the right choice if
you're looking for:
Would you like a sale that keeps paying every
- A learning curve for your sales force that
makes them ready to compel orders in 2 hours.
- An easy ancillary sale to your current
offerings. Task Meister is applicable to anyone wishing to manage tasks online,
that is, just about every one of your customers.
- A quick sale since subscription pricing is
within almost everyone's immediate signature authority.
- A way out of collecting money. Task Meister
does that for you.
- 2. Software Integrator - One advantage of a
web service is how easily it integrates with other software. If you need to
provide task management as part of your application, let us show you how that
can be a component we can provide faster, easier, and cheaper than doing it
- 3. Value Added Reseller Whereas Task
Meister is a very effective tool to manage tasks online, it requires someone to
break projects into tasks and make sure people do their tasks, that is, be a
Project Manager. Some Task Meister customers are happy to do that. Some look to
outsource that, particularly if they are presented with a Project Management
capability well matched to the project at hand.
- This is where a Value Added Reseller comes in,
typically with a proposal to your clients that includes Task Meister and the
services to deliver a complete project. Usually, this is priced at many times
the cost of Task Meister alone. And we become your collection agent, rolling
your fee into the subscription price and making your past due collection
problems a thing of the past.

The process begins with an
application form you use to introduce yourself and

Besides a competitive commission
structure, we can provide the following to help build your Task Meister

- FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
- What are the commission
- Can I have people I train work at

- How often can I change my
- What are the commission
- These are negotiated person-to-person and depend on
factors like how well matched your community is to Task Meister, how much you
will do to make things happen, what you plan to charge, etc. We also typically
give more of a commission on the signup fee for resellers and membership groups
since that is where you often make your most important contribution. Such
startup fee commissions can range from 20% to 50% with monthly subscription
commissions around 10%.
Value Added Resellers set their own startup and
monthly commission rates. Part-time Project Managers (with experience) can
charge several thousand dollars per month, for example, and we may retain
$50/mo to deliver Task Meister and to collect and pass on their fee
- Can I have people I train
work at this with me?
- Yes. And we can negotiate a separate RefCode for
each person you bring aboard such that you share in their commission structure.
If John Smith (RefCode=JS), for example, brings Linda Lewis aboard, her RefCode
would be JS-LL. Each time a sale goes through for RefCode JS-LL, Linda Lewis
gets her commission and so does John Smith. Such second-level commissions (to
John Smith) are typically 2% to 10%.
This borrows concepts from
multilevel marketing, but remember a major difference. Whereas most multilevel
marketing programs minimize the importance of the product being sold (often
just household commodities) relative to their compensation formulas, we look
first at the product. Our business model is not based on soap suds it is
built on Task Meister's rock-solid, proprietary value proposition and your

- As often as you wish, every sale if you wish. If
you prefer to walk your customers through the signup process, for example, you
can have a price waiting for them that reflects your services to that
particular customer and their payment expectations.
