All Affiliates will see their sales activity live in their dashboard. The will see the commission earned for the commission period. This individual Affiliate dashboard is linked to the Affiliates social feeds and so the affiliate has ability to post directly from their portal. The social channels are Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Google+, Twitter, etc.
Your affiliate dashboard is unique to you. It contains everything you’ll need to promote our site and our product, including:

If an Affiliate has a professional that they would like to sign up as a sub affiliate under them, they will need to have that subAffiliate submit a resume and application to The Charter Companies and interview with Peter Kulturides and Anthony Roman.

Group Sales Guideline and Commission Structure
The Charter Companies and all subsidiaries promote our affiliates to sell to large groups. Our platform is designed to manage a volume of professionals at one time who are looking to advancing their careers. We have designed a tool that will allow us to communicate with our members in group training sessions and provide updates on currently hiring trends, new courses to advance your career and much more. Listed below is the definition of Group Sales for The Charter Companies and all subsidiaries.
Group Sales Definition:
The Charter Companies defines the term “Group Sale” as any individual sale where there is 50 or more licenses purchased to gain access to the Charter E-Learning & Coaching platform. If an Affiliate is selling to a Fraternity, Sorority or Athletic Organization, The Charter Companies would like to have all professionals registered on the platform within 30 days of purchase. The Charter Companies will require a Purchase Order “PO” for the group sale. Invoice must be paid in full before The Charter Companies registers any of the professionals to the Charter E-Learning & Coaching platform.
The Charter Companies will require a list of names and e-mail address in an excel format of the professionals that the organization would like to register. The Charter Companies will provide each professional on that list with a one-time registration code to be used to gain access to our platform. That code will expire within 30 days of being sent. When the professional registers, they will see at checkout the fee has been paid for the 1st six months access to the platform. Typical license =$167.99
Each professional will be required to enter in their credit card in at checkout for payment of the 2nd 6 months charge of $9:98 per month. All the heavy lifting has been done in the 1st 6 months and now it is time to expand each professionals network and have access to professional career guidance to “Set Your Professional Career Course” The 2nd 6 months we offer professionals live coaching on networking, career reminders, career document storage, monthly live coaching and more. In the 11th month all professionals will be asked to renew their subscription with The Charter Companies. When a professional opts in to renews with us for the following year, they will be locked in at $9:98 for full access to our platform.
All Affiliates selling a group sale need to be in communication with either Peter Kulturides or Anthony Roman on terms of the group sale. If any of our affiliates need assistance in the sales cycle, they are to contact Peter or Anthony for support. All affiliates will be able to share the demo class with their client, so they see a demo of what they are purchasing for their group. Pater and Anthony can go into more detail if the client needs more information.
Group Sales Commission:
The Charter Companies will pay a 7% commission on all group sales to an Affiliate. The Charter Companies and all subsidiaries will not pay a tear commission if the affiliate falls under a SR Affiliate, meaning there will not be an override to the SR Affiliate for commission on the group sale.
- Example of Commission:
- Sale of 60 Navigators Licenses
- Navigators licenses: 167.99 x 7% = $11.76 x 60 = $705.60n Payable net 30 days upon invoice
Group Sales Commission Payout:
All group sales will be paid out 30 days after the funds are received from the group purchasing. The Charter Companies will coordinate with the client to get all professionals in the group properly registered on to the platform. The Affiliate will need to provide The Charter Companies and invoice for the Commission amount prior to payment. The Charter Companies will cut the commission check once that invoice has been paid and the 30 days have past. All group sales payments will be separate to the Affiliates portal and will be paid after The Charter Companies have received the an invoice from the Affiliate.
