Referral Program

Illumina has grown rapidly by offering exceptional standards of service delivered by specialists and backed by an empathy with the business sector. We have recently expanded our operational capacity and are looking to grow our client base rapidly. In order to do this, we are offering generous introductory commission to intermediaries who introduce vetted leads to the firm, who subsequently become fee paying clients.

Typically, referrers will be individuals or organisations who service these markets (accounting firms, management consultants, lawyers, business brokers, financial advisors, etc.), who wish to generate a substantial income stream from their existing contacts. There are over 1.2million SMEs in Australia, most of whom need some form of business adviser support. Of these, around 300,000 are of the size and have the outlook that makes them Illumina clients.

Referrers are required to assess whether targets fit the criteria to become an Illumina client and whether they have an interest in appointing a business consultant.

  • Unhappiness or issues with current business

  • Funding requirements or growth challenges
  • Need for more management or financial information
  • Acquisitions or mergers

How will the commission share work in practice?

Once they have become a client, we will send you details of the total commission share due to you in order for you or your finance department to raise an invoice.

If 1 to 5 clients are received from referrer that use Illumina Consultancy Services the referrer receives 15% commission on all billings to clients, from 5 to 10 clients commission increases to 20%, 10 to 25+ clients commission is increased to 25%.

How Our clients already have a consultant – why would they change to you?

Ask them the question – has your consultant or advisor truly added any value to them? Have they saved them more money than they have charged? If they are unable to respond with a clear ‘yes’, there is a strong likelihood that the answer is ‘no’. If they do decide to move over to us, we will make sure the switch is incredibly easy. Our approach ensures that we understand their individual needs.
