Agent agrees to refer 6 or more businesses per quarter (2 per month).  If Agent does not refer a minimum of 2 businesses per month (24 per year) Agent may loose ‘good standing’ and their active status as a referral partner.  Good standing will be calculated based on the number of qualified referrals in a calendar year (or pro rated portion of a calendar year) upon looking back each January (at the previous year).   If Agent falls short of 24 referrals in the previous calendar year, Visiting Media will examine each quarter.  If agent referred 6 or more businesses in any quarter agent will earn the referral fee for those ‘qualifying’ quarters only (looking back).  However, in this situation, Agent would not quality for good standing moving forward, unless otherwise agreed upon, as good standing is based on annual referral totals.
