When we started the partnerships we discussed a percentage of the job, however we haven't really formalised anything and apart from taking them out for a beer or sending work their way to compensate I would like to formalise the process so that I know what the amount is and I can ensure I am making enough from the project when I quote to the client.
My question - what rate / percentage of a job to you pay to referrers as a referral fee.
I have thrown figures around - maybe 10% or 15% - is this an ok rate.
At the end of the day, I wouldn't be getting this work if it wasn't for the referrer however I can't give too much more away otherwise it's a super cheap project.
What's your rate for this sort of arrangement? or do you use the beer economy?
