ATTN: HOLIDAY LIGHT INSTALLERS
Are you looking for a reliable partner to supply high-quality lighting products for your business? Look no further than Certified Lights’ Wholesale Partnership Program!
We are excited to invite you to become a Certified Lights Wholesale Partner. This partnership program is completely free and comes with a variety of great benefits to help your holiday installation business grow.
What is a Certified Lights Partner?
Here at Certified Lights, our mission is to be the industry leader in the professional outdoor lighting space in both (1) the quality of our products and (2) the level of service and expertise displayed by the companies who install them.
Which is why we created the Certified Lights Partnership Program - to allow us to come alongside our partners in an advisory capacity to achieve this mission in two ways:
- By working intimately with our partners, we are getting direct feedback from them about our products for quality improvement and innovation opportunities - such as the creation of the coaxial adapters and connectors to better protect wire connections from moisture, or the unique stucco garage & window installation techniques we teach in our trainings, as well as many other unique solutions and products we’ve come up with by working closely with our partners and intimately understanding their challenges.
- By helping our partners level up their installation and business skills, we all set ourselves apart across the industry as the clear leaders of quality and professionalism. This in turn has led to consistent year over year growth for CL partners. And when our partners grow, we all grow together.

Everything You Need To Succeed In The Holiday Lighting Industry
REQUIREMENTS - WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BECOME A CL PARTNER?
And did we mention that the Certified Lights Partnership Program is completely FREE to join? That’s right, there are NO FEEs associated with the partnership program at this time. That means you can start saving on your lighting products and receiving top-notch support without spending a dime. We only ask a couple of things from you as a CL Partner…
- First, as a CL partner, you agree to make Certified Lights your primary Holiday Lighting supplier whenever possible. In the event Certified Lights CANNOT supply a specific product, then partners are free to seek them from other sources. If a matter of product cost is a concern, ask us about our partner-price-matching policy. In most cases we can meet (if not beat) competitor pricing. It really is a no-brainer!
- Second, we ask that you take the CL Partners Program and your business development seriously. As mentioned before, our mission is to be the clear leader in the holiday lighting industry and we want the same for our partners. We ask that you bring a growth mindset into becoming a partner - taking full advantage of all the resources and development opportunities the CL Partner Program has to offer. That means going through the business training material, showing up to partner calls and events whenever possible, sharing your challenges and wins, and making the most of this relationship. In other words, we ask that you play full out! Because that’s what we’re all about.
By now, you’ve probably noticed that our entire growth model is linked to and correlated with the success and growth of our Partners.
And We Pride Ourselves On That! We believe that truly sets us apart from everyone else and ultimately drives us to being our best and providing the best products and services to partners.

Why Choose Certified Lights?
The Certified Lights Partners Program is designed by pro installers for installers.
My journey from $400k to $5.8MM Annual Revenue
Hi! My name is Scott Young.
When I took over my Dad's pest control business, I went on a mission to grow. A decade later, I ran a $5+ Million per year, 50-people strong company with year-around offerings and income.
It was the Holiday Lighting segment I had added that made a huge impact on my bottom line. Today, I want to share what I learned and help our partners scale to a 7-figure business of their own.
What Our partners have to say
The thing I liked most about adding Christmas Lights to my slow season was the quick growth! We have grown approx. 30% each year since starting. Scott's training was key to getting us off to a fast start.
Another great benefit was not having to lay off my employees during our slower part of the year. Turns out, all of our employees made more during this part of the year due to increased margin and bottom line.David Y.Houston, TX
I just wanted to thank you again for hosting us. What I learned and took away from the training was so beneficial and I look forward to working with you guys.Memphis, TN
