Brilliance CRM

How to Get A CRM For Free!

Yes, there's always a catch! There's always a catch. It's not a bad catch! The catch will show you're going to be successful!

What's the Catch?

We believe in being upfront, honest, and straight to the point. We know nothing in life is truly free and those that are free are never worth the value that is stated. We will give you our Brilliance CRM Professional ($497 setup included and $297 a month value).

This started as something for Not-for-Profits (NFPs) but we've extended it to everyone that wants to take part as long as the requirements are met. It was brought up that many don't like to directly pay for software. I mean, it's expensive. So, we came up with a way to make it that your customers/donors pay those fees.

"The Catch" Requirements

  • We want you to use our credit card provider. Don't worry, we're not involved. You'll talk with them, you'll negotiate the lowest possible rate, and save more. In most cases less than PayPal, Square, Stripe, or any other provider. Just remember, it's not always about the initial price. Many card providers have hidden costs. Don't worry, this is a fair company that aligns with our values of "no lying."
  • You have $10,000.00 or more in a month in donations/paid invoices.
  • We require you use our software, Brilliance CRM, for donations and invoices.
  • There is no setup or monthly charge for Brilliance CRM directly. We add a 2.75% that is guaranteed to never go beyond that amount. In fact, we will actually lower it! that is added to the donation/invoice that your customer/donor pays along with the credit card fees.
