We talk to a lot of MSPs, VARs, ISVs and IT consultants who say they would like to resell hosted services like Hosted Exchange, SharePoint, Lync and online backup, but just don’t have the technical expertise or resources to provide the 24/7/365 technical support their customers need.
Well, SherWeb would like to propose another option.
Today we are proudly launching the first true cloud service distributor model in the industry. As of now, MSPs, VARs, ISVs and IT consultants can resell our premium business-grade hosted services without having to worry about providing customer support. We handle it for them! What’s even better is that the partner gets to keep full customer ownership, with control over pricing and the ability to invoice the end-client directly.
It’s part of our partner network revamp and we’re really excited about the changes.
The first true distributor model
True to our reputation as a real innovator and one of the best hosting services providers in the industry, our new distributor model is the first and only true co-branded model in the cloud. It’s also an easy, risk-free way to resell high-demand, high-revenue cloud services—something many IT professionals were unable to do. Until now!
How does it work? It’s kind of like buying a Toshiba computer from Best Buy. The customer belongs to Best Buy, but calls Toshiba whenever he or she needs support.
The same applies to our model. SherWeb distributors retain full customer ownership: they make the sale, set prices, manage the account and bill the customer.
But they also get to skip the time, hassle and resources involved in providing technical support. Instead, they delegate any and all support to us, which we provide directly to the customer 365/24/7.
For a lot of IT service professionals and small firms with limited resources, it’s a winning combination.
Of course, for those who are willing and able to provide full customer support, we still have our highly successful hosted exchange reseller model, a fully white label model in which Resellers retain full customer ownership, set their own prices and provide customer support—all under their own brand.
Affiliates become trusted Advisors
Another big change in our revamped partner network is our affiliate program, which we’ve renamed hosted exchange advisor program. After all, these IT consulting firms and professionals are trusted advisors for customers and we felt it was important to reflect that.
But that’s not all we changed.
A partner program that pays more… and keeps on paying
We appreciate the hard work our partners put into not only making the initial sale, but also in growing the customer relationship over the long run. And we want to support that.
So we improved our payment structure to reward all their efforts on all our services.
We start with incredibly competitive reseller and distributor prices on our value-packed Hosted Exchange bundles. We also offer generous partner pricing tiers based on all services. Margins start at an impressive 27% and increase with sales.
Meanwhile, our advisors enjoy a lucrative commission structure that combines a generous 150% one-time payout plus a 7% recurring monthly commission.
The industry’s most high-demand, high-revenue cloud services
SherWeb resellers, distributors and advisors alike have access to our full suite of premium cloud services like Hosted Exchange, SharePoint, Lync, SkyNox online backup and more, as well as our hosted exchange productivity suite tailored for SMBs: SkyOffice.
Our proven partner program has already allowed over 3,000 MSPs, VARs, ISVs and IT consultants increase revenues and grow their business by adding cloud services to their product portfolio.
We’re confident that these changes will make reselling, distributing or recommending our award-winning business-grade hosted solutions easier and more profitable than ever before!
