4 Easy Ways to Add Accessibility to Your Business
Selling accessibility services can easily fit within your existing website design and development or maintenance processes – no major overhauls needed. Here are four ways you can grow your revenue with accessibility.
Earn A 20% Commission on All Referrals
Join our affiliate program and we’ll pay you a 20% commission on all purchases made by your referrals, for both Accessibility Checker Pro and all of our service offerings. This is a great way to grow your revenue with accessibility and lead your clients down the path toward accessibility without having to manage the process yourself.
Most agencies and freelancers directly interface with us for design reviews, accessibility audits, user testing, and remediation work, and we never engage with their clients at all. Typically in these scenarios, they have marked up our pricing to cover their project management time and are selling our services as their own. In this case, the agency or freelancer purchases any applicable packages at the time when they are ready for services to be completed.
In other cases, we’re brought in as a vendor on the project and do interact with the client, who knows that Equalize Digital is doing the work and who may be paying us directly. In these instances, the agent typically uses a referral link to get a commission and may still participate in all communication and calls.
We understand how important your client relationships are to your business and are happy to offer our accessibility services in a way that makes the most sense to you. To discuss your partnership needs in greater detail, please contact us.
Upon request, we can white label audit reports, however, this may present a challenge if your client comes back with questions you’re not sure how to answer. This is something you may want to consider when determining how you’ll sell accessibility to your clients.
The Accessibility Checker plugin does not currently have a white label feature.
It is our goal to make building an accessible website easy for you and your team, and we know how frustrating it can be to have to go back and rebuild sections of websites to make them accessible. To this end, we aim with every engagement to help your team think accessibility-first in everything they do.
We offer training services to provide a better understanding of accessible design and development best practices, and with every audit, your team will learn things to help them do better on subsequent projects. Accessibility Checker Pro is also a great teaching tool to help your team learn more about accessibility.
We also offer a la cart consulting services and our priority support packages that can be used if you have questions or need short training sessions.

To learn more about our approach to website accessibility remediation, visit our remediation page.
Remediation timelines are unique for every client depending upon several items, including the number of problems present on the site and the budget available for fixes. Our goal is to remediate all issues as quickly as possible, and some clients choose to have an intense remediation phase over several weeks following an audit. Other clients may elect to enter a remediation plan that stretches over many months due to the number of problems that need to be addressed, the number of pages requiring manual review, and their budget.
