#3: Send Business Our Way

Do you know somebody looking to hire a talented professional software developer? If you send business our way, we'll split the profits with you, fifty-fifty. That averages out to over $750 per sale, just for sharing a link!

People say we're crazy for paying that much to our partners, but we don't care. We're a bootstrapped, profitable and completely independent company, which means we can completely rewrite the rules in the freelance industry with one thing in mind: making you more money. We only make money when you make money, and we like it that way.

Just ask Marcus Whitney. As a CTO, Marcus is asked often if he knows any developers looking for work. One day, he referred his friend Charlie, who had been looking for a Rails developer for 3 months for a $10,000 freelance project. Within 7 days of working with Gun.io, Charlie found a great developer from San Francisco, and Marcus earned $750. Not too shabby!

At Gun.io, we love sharing useful information. Our awesome tutorials, guides, essays and fun articles are a huge source of our traffic and provide a great utility for the members of our community. Just like with our partner program, we pay out a full 50% commission for all sales that come through any articles you write. For some articles, this can mean over $10,000 in payouts!

If you're a writer looking to expand your audience and get paid for it, you should write for us!
