You wouldn’t be an independent cloud reseller if you didn’t want to run your own show. But let’s face it, going solo isn’t always easy. Even though the market for cloud services is red hot right now, there are plenty of other resellers just like you who are clamoring to get into the game. You want to give your clients the best services on the market. At the same time, you want to control the way you run your own business. So, how do you do it?

By joining forces with a trusted cloud service provider. We know what you’re thinking, there are plenty of vendors out there who are offering all kinds of programs with tons of different features. Have you heard of Partners First, SherWeb’s partner program? It’s designed for people like you who want to expand their business without sacrificing their customer relationships. Here’s how we do it.


Accelerate Growth and Maximize Profits

It’s a simple formula. If you want to be a successful cloud reseller, you have to increase your profits. Partners First will offer you margins of up to 45% with no strings attached. Signing up to our program is free and there are no obligations or commitments. We’ll even give you additional performance discounts that can range from 5% to 20% on all recurring services. And, if you’re a reseller in our Advisor program, you can earn a one-time commission of 150% just by referring clients for cloud solutions. We’ll also give you a 7% monthly commission for the life of the product line.


Diversify Your Cloud Portfolio

The best way to attract new clients and keep them happy is to provide a wide variety of cloud services. By offering your clients a complete portfolio, you establish yourself as a one-stop shop and the go-to person for all things IT. When you join our Partners First program, you can offer our entire range of products which include Infrastructure-as-a-Service (cloud servers, cloud databases), Office 365, Hosted Exchange, Online Backup solutions and more. If you’ve ever had to deal with major players on your own, you know how impersonal and tedious it can be. Because SherWeb is a smaller provider, we can offer our partners more personalized service. We’ll take the time to offer you a free demo or free migration services simply because we understand your needs.


Simplify Your Cloud Business

When you sign up with Partners First, you’ll be eligible for training from specialists who will teach you about SherWeb’s products and solutions. You’ll also be assigned your own Business Specialist who will show you how to increase your monthly recurring revenue and ensure your success. You don’t have to worry about hiring new staff, planning training sessions or building sales collaterals.  Our partners also have access to our web-based toolbox. It contains an exhaustive collection of resources that will help help our partners package and sell their cloud offerings, such as eBooks, battle cards and videos. There’s also a link to SherWeb’s partner portal where partners provision their products, manage their billing and create special offers for their customers. When you simplify your sales process, you have more time to focus on growing your business and making sure your clients are happy.


Flexible Reseller Programs

As we mentioned earlier, choosing a partner program is a tough call. Not sure what kind of reseller model suits you best? SherWeb offers three partner programs – White label, Co-branded and Advisor — that are designed to give you as much or as little control as you want over the customer relationships and offers. Feel like running your own show? Go white label. You sell all our products and services under your own label, you set your own prices and you pocket the profits. If offering technical support isn’t your thing, try the Co-branded approach. In this case, you offer services under SherWeb’s label and we provide the technical support. Customer billing is still up to you. Short on time? Become an Advisor. You’ll be paid a commission for the clients you refer to SherWeb and you won’t have to do anything else. What an easy to increase your revenue!
