Do you want to earn money from getting us clients? Are you looking for valuable offerings you can introduce to your network?


How it works

In summary, MaruAfrica is looking for reseller partners and agents. You provide us with leads and you can get a percentage of the project as a referral fee once we are successful in selling the solution to the client.

You can earn up to 20% commission.

The payment & commission you get is based on what the client buys.

Example 1:

If the client pays us to build an online shop for them, they will pay us R6000.

You will be paid R1200 in this transaction.

Example 2:

If the client buys the starter web hosting package which costs between R630 and R970 per annum, you could earn R63 or R97 in that transaction. 
If you are able to refer 10 clients a month, you could earn up to R970.

1) Talk to potential clients
Determine clients or friends that could use our help (e.g. if you know anyone who is looking for a new website (or a redesign) and you think my services are a good fit).

Find out if your client or friend needs a new website and tell them you have an excellent firm you recommend.

2) Register the opportunity using the Agent Referral Form below
Ask them if you can have youTHRIVE (by MaruAfrica) contact them, and get their name, phone, and email and send it our way.

3) We Follow Up
We contact them. Take them through our planning & discovery process. Then help them figure out what they need and price out the site.

4) You Get Paid
If the client you referred hires us and spends R630 or more, you will receive your money into an account (e.g. PayPal, e-wallet, bank, etc.) 30 days after we get paid. There is no limit. However, this offer is good only for new clients.

youTHRIVE was created by MaruAfrica who have been designing websites for more than 6 years and have completed over 100 projects to date.

We work primarily in WordPress and specialize in eye-catching, clean, functional and organized websites for small to medium-sized businesses. Our clients are located all over South Africa but mainly in Gauteng.

MaruAfrica has also invested in cloud-hosted infrastructure and systems that make it easier for us to share a piece of the pie with our partner network.

For now, we work on South African websites only. You can only participate in this program if you live in South Africa.


We work remotely via phone and email and do not offer in-person services at this time. Exceptions can be made for clients who are able to book an appointment to come to our offices in Pretoria.

We are looking for companies and agents that sell to business owners but do not offer web design and hosting. This could be:

  • Young, self-employed people
  • Promotional Product Companies
  • SEO / Internet Marketing Companies
  • Commercial Real Estate Companies
  • Office Supply Companies
  • Sign & Printing Companies
  • Office Furniture Supply Companies
  • Business Coaches
  • Chambers of Commerce
  • and more

If you don’t trust us that we are a legitimate company with integrity, please don’t join this programme and don’t refer clients to us.

We are looking for partners who can work with us to make sure that clients’ projects get delivered.

The following are included in the Web Design package:

  • Design, configuration & customization services
  • CMS Website Customization service
  • SEO (On website) Configuration
  • 1 Logo Design
  • Blog Setup
  • Secure Web Hosting
  • E-mail Hosting
  • Domain Registration
  • Analytics & Insights using Google
  • Maximum 15 Pages


We don’t write the content for clients. Clients can hire content developers on youTHRIVE

If we determine that you as the referrer are not participating in our program with integrity, we reserve the right to terminate your account and cease referral payments to you at any time for any reason. Also, you can’t refer yourself. (Sorry!)



We have a zero-tolerance policy for abuse. If clients or agents are abusive, we reserve the irrevocable right to terminate the relationship without any prior notice.


Spotted a potential client? Great, let us know what they are interested in and we’ll take it from there.
