Refer a Friend and Earn

With over 2,000 active support customers, we obtain most of our work from word of mouth referrals. We’re conscious that this takes effort on your behalf so want to reward you!

Dorset Tech has been at the forefront of Website and App Development in the UK for many years. We can develop simple brochure sites, to complex multi-site networks and international marketplaces. Being a social enterprise, we’ve managed to keep our rates down at levels not seen elsewhere – less than 1/4 of the industry average! If you love our work, why not tell people about it and benefit from it.

Benefits to your friend

They get support from a large team of experts, many of which have been doing this for over half our lives. They only get billed for the exact time used and not an additional margin.

Limited time only: We’ve just hired 3 new developers and so until our pipeline is expanded we’ll offer everyone our promotional rate of £25/hour – the same rate we offer to charities and less than 1/4 of the industry average rate!

Benefits to you

Help a friend
Your friend will surely appreciate you saving them 3/4 of their development bill.

Support a family business
We’ve grown a lot in the last couple of years, but we’re still a husband and wife business. No greedy investors, just a family trying to make a socially conscious impact on the industry.

Receive Cash Rewards
The table on this page shows our new referral credit rates for 2023. We recognise the effort some of you go to recommend us and want to reward you for it.

Super Referrers
Some of our customers refer people so frequently that we have a flag on their account giving them more leeway with payment terms, goodwill credits on their invoices, unbilled support tickets and free plugin licenses.
