Helps enable customers, consultants and prospective partners to profit from the cloud
Intermedia, a leading one-stop provider of cloud business applications, today announced a new opportunity for virtually anyone to potentially earn commissions from the cloud. Now, on top of Intermedia’s award-winning Private Label and Advisor partner models, Intermedia’s new referral program enables customers, advisors and partners to refer a new customer and be eligible to receive a one-time commission.
“Intermedia has always been easy to recommend,” said Ettore Dragone, CEO of MTG IT Professionals. “This new referral program is a great option for customers and their managed service providers who aren’t yet ready to move to a full-scale partnership. Where else can you profit from giving someone else the business?”
Referrers can provide a potential customer’s details through a contact form, provide the potential customer with a sign-up link, or share an informational link with potential customers. Once the referral has been submitted via the contact form, referrers will be able to access the progress of their leads through a detailed report in Intermedia’s partner portal.
“Our new referral model provides a simple way for satisfied Intermedia customers, IT or business consultants or prospective partners to earn commissions from the cloud,” said Michael Gold, President of Intermedia. “The referral program helps virtually anyone profit from the cloud while leaving Intermedia to handle sales, billing and support, all backed by our Worry-Free Experience™.”
Now Intermedia offers three ways to help partners profit from the cloud
Intermedia’s partner program gives partners a choice in how they grow their business in the cloud— without changing how they do business and without minimum commitments or fees. Partners can select from one of three different partnership models on a customer-by-customer basis:
- Private label – partners own the billing and overall customer relationship under their own brand
- Advisor – partners receive a recurring commission by leveraging the Intermedia brand and let Intermedia handle technical support and billing
- Referral – partners receive a one-time commission for sharing a lead that Intermedia converts to a customer
While private label and advisor partners are active in the client relationship and complete their own deals, our referral model is designed to be more accessible. Referrals provide those new to Intermedia’s services or the cloud space an opportunity to earn commissions through sales of Intermedia’s solutions. As referral partners become more familiar with Intermedia’s cloud offerings, they have the opportunity to move up to our advisor or private label programs at any time.
Referrals can be made for any Intermedia service, including phone service, business email, file collaboration and IT security services, with price points ranging from $3.99 to $99 per user per month. Additionally, Intermedia helps its partners succeed by providing expert marketing support and sales assistance, as well as Intermedia’s Worry-Free Experience which includes expert migration services, white-glove onboarding, 24/7 technical support and a 99.999% uptime service level agreement.
