Intermedia introduces new referral model

December is here, which means Christmas is right around the corner.  As the barrage of online ads and promotions infiltrate my inbox, I’m quickly reminded of all the gifts I need to buy.

While I can spend hours trolling the internet for gift ideas, it occurs to me that more often than not the best gifts are the ones that other people clue you in on. It’s great to have a good referral.

In the spirit of holidays, we’re giving you an opportunity to spread some cheer. With our new referral program virtually anyone can refer a new customer to potentially earn a one-time commission.

We know that nobody likes jumping through hoops so we’ve made our referral process truly simple. All you have to do to refer a lead is provide basic information about the company and our team will handle sales, billing and support. You can refer a customer in one-of-three ways:

  • Submit customer’s details through a contact form
  • Provide the potential customer with a sign-up link
  • Share an informational link with potential customers

Now Intermedia offers three ways to help partners profit from the cloud

Our award-winning partner program offers three ways for partners to grow their business in the cloud: private label, advisor and our new referral model.  With our program, partners don’t have to change the way they do business or deal with minimum commitments and fees. Partners can select from one of the following partnership models on a case-by-case basis:

  • Private label – partners own the billing and customer relationship until their own brand
  • Advisor – partners receive recurring commission leveraging Intermedia’s billing, branding and support
  • Referral — partners are eligible to receive a one-time commission for sharing a customer lead

You may be wondering what the difference is between our advisor and referral models.  With our advisor model, partners maintain the customer relationship and are responsible for closing the deal. Our referral model is designed to be much more accessible. Referrals allow those new to Intermedia’s services or the cloud space an opportunity to earn a commission through sales of Intermedia’s solutions.

We sat down with active Intermedia partner, Ettore Dragone of MTG IT Professionals to get his thoughts on the new program. Take a look at what he had to say:

Referrals can be made for any of Intermedia’s services with price points ranging from $3.99 to $99 per user/per month.  Learn more about Intermedia’s referral model.
