Web Hosting NewsLondon – Leading business internet and colocated hosting provider, Easynet Connect today announces its first ever Sales Agent Referral Scheme to support its existing channel reseller programme. The new Sales Agent Referral Scheme is designed to offer more opportunities for a wider range of partners to earn commission from selling ’Easynet Connects internet connectivity and colocation services.

Although open to all partners, the new Sales Agent Referral Scheme will benefit those in particular who were previously unable to fully manage the ongoing technical support and billing procedures required to be a full reseller. Once a referral is complete and the service installed, the sales agent receives a one-off lump sum commission fee. Easynet Connect then services and supports the end-user directly, helping smaller partners boost cash-flow without the need for ongoing commitments or up front investment.

[swfobj src=”” width=”300/250″ class=”border: 1px solid grey;” align=”right”] The new Sales Agent Referral Scheme will run alongside ’Easynet Connects existing Reseller Programme, in which the reseller fully owns, manages and supports the customer, in return for ongoing commission payments.

Debbie Roberston, Director of Sales and Marketing at Easynet Connect said of the new scheme. “We believe this is the first time a B2B internet service provider has offered this kind of sales agent scheme, which we’re confident will help partners of all sizes, in particular smaller consultants. We implemented the scheme following feedback from channel partners who recommended our services but couldn’t justify the long-term commitment of a fully managed service or afford the high set up costs. These partners are important to us so we wanted to ensure their loyalty was rewarded in a simple, straightforward and meaningful manner.”

Simon Harrison, Director of Leased Lines UK said of the announcement: “Easynet Connect’s new sales agent model provides the perfect structure for us to work within. We generate the leads, handle the initial introduction and then pass on the client and their requirements direct to Easynet Connect’s team. This model provides the perfect infrastructure, allowing us to get on with what we do best, generating new business and adding additional value-added services to our client base whilst Easynet Connect handle the technical support, implementation and billing of the client”.
