The Connector Program is Braintrust’s secret sauce to landing new clients and attracting new Talent.
The idea is to leverage Braintrust's thriving community to make referrals to people within their network (and reward them with $BTRST tokens) so we don’t have to spend money on expensive ads/marketing – allowing us to pass those cost savings on to our clients and talent!
You earn 2% of new billings for each client referral, and 1% of new billings for each Talent referral, up to $100K worth of $BTRST tokens per referral.
How do I sign up?
When you’re ready to get started, you can sign up in 1 of 2 ways, depending on whether or not you already have a Braintrust account.
1) If you already have a Braintrust account, you can go to your “Earn” page in the Braintrust app, and click “Join the Client Referral program.”
The network will ask for you to share your LinkedIn profile. Click “Join.”
2) Whether you already have a Braintrust account or not, you can always sign up on our Braintrust Client Connector Program page.
You will need to provide your name, email, and LinkedIn URL. You can also add your phone number, although this isn’t mandatory.
Finally, you will be asked to select the answer that best applies to you:
Then, press submit!
How do I refer clients?
Once you submit your information, a Braintrust team member will go through your LinkedIn connections and create a short list of top prospects.
They will reach out to ask if you would like to make introductions to those contacts, or if you would prefer to skip that contact.
The Braintrust team will send you an introduction request via email or LinkedIn for each individual contact.
You can then forward the intro request to both the contact and the Braintrust team, along with your own intro message.
Here are some sample LinkedIn messages you can use as inspiration. Feel free to edit as you please to make them your own — we find that keeping it more casual and informal works best!
What kind of clients should I refer to Braintrust?
Our ideal contact is a hiring manager or above in IT, Product, Design, Engineering, HR, Talent Acquisition, Marketing, or Procurement.

When will I receive my referral bonus?
If there is a mutual fit, Braintrust will bring your referral on as a client — more than 60% of our enterprise clients come from the connector program!
Once the client starts hiring with Braintrust, you’ll earn 2% of each billing they pay on the network.
This bonus is awarded at the moment the billing is paid, in the form of our $BTRST token, and is capped at $100K worth of $BTRST per client.
