The Genius Sales Network is a collection of public customer facing websites which are owned and operated by Genius Software Ltd.
These websites list and advertise your training events to the general public and more than 15,000 corporate clients who have purchased training from our organisation in the past.
We fund all advertising of your events on the Genius Sales Network in return for a small commission on each sale.
We operate several sales websites ensuring you receive maximum exposure to existing and potential clients who are looking to book training.

By utilizing Genius Training Management System you are able to list all of your training events on the Genius Sales Network automatically via an industry first 'Live Feed'.
The number of places available is displayed for each event, live and in real time allowing the customer to make an informed choice on which event to book and with which training provider.
This also means that when customers book their event it instantly shows up in your 'Genius Training Management System' so you are aware of the booking in real time. No waiting for a third party or broker to call and enquire if there is a place available on the event.
Genius Sales Network doesn't hide who the training provider of each event is, in fact we actively promote this information to the customer, even giving you your own profile page where you can write a brief profile about your own business to allow customers to make an informed decision about booking with you.
We also display your contact details, telephone, email and full address allowing customers to contact you directly if they wish.
When the customer places an order all of the order information including the customers details and the order details is entered into your Genius Training Management System. This allows you to quickly process the order, send Joining Instructions and any supporting documentation that you require. Genius Training Management System will then securely store all of your customer, learner and order information in a GDPR compliant system.
The Genius Training Management System works in a similar way to a broker in that we advertise your training events and charge a commission for doing so.
That's where the similarity ends.
The Genius Sales Network is a hybrid, giving you the best of both a broker (advertising your courses for no monthly charge) and a paid for classified adds system (the customer books direct with you), so you get the exposure of a broker but with the direct contact and payment of classified adds.
To use the Genius Sales Network there are three requirements.
These requirements are in place to speed up the process of accepting orders, make the process as secure as possible and to ensure that you receive prompt payment for services.
1) You must subscribe to and use the Genius Training Management System to upload your courses, monitor and process orders and record customer details in a secure and GDPR compliant system. There are monthly subscription charges involved, Read pricing.
2) The customer pays you directly so we have partnered with Stripe.com for the processing of credit/debit cards so you will need to open an account with Stripe.com. This is free to setup, takes approximately 3 minutes and there are no ongoing monthly fees. Stripe will process your credit/debit card payments and provide the full total cleared funds direct to you within 48 business hours.
3) You will need to enter into a direct debit agreement with us which we use to take the 'commission' that we earn from each sale at the end of each month. We use GoCardless for this. There are no charges to you for the GoCardless service, it's free to set up the account and takes less than 1 minute. These three services dramatically speed up the entire process when a customer places an order via the Genius Sales Network and makes the whole process of yourself being paid directly from the customer quick and simple.
Genius was developed from scratch with GDPR compliancy built in.
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) means that you must secure all customer data that you process and/or store. If you use Microsoft Excel or something similar and store this data on your own computer it is not secure.
The most secure way to store customer data is using a cloud based Training Management System and Genius is fully GDPR Compliant.
