Atlanta-based provider NationalNet, which offers fully managed and dedicated Web-based hosting solutions and services, has launched an extensive channel partner program for partners throughout the country.
“The program will allow our partners to earn industry-leading payouts, including upfront payments and high monthly residuals, while offering our suite of customer-focused hosting services to their business clients,” said NationalNet president, Bill VanVorst.
In its first foray into the channel market, the privately held NationalNet is looking to form relationships with all types of partners, including independent and master agents, consultants, distributors and resellers. The program, which launched officially on Sept. 1, had added 12 partners at press time and projected to add at least 50 by year-end.
NationalNet’s program uses multiple payout tiers. If the partner’s monthly revenue is less than $15,000, he/she will receive 15 percent commission. If the partner’s monthly revenue exceeds $15,000, the rate rises to 20 percent.
Partners can generate quotes and contracts from the MyNatNet Web site. Once NationalNet receives the executed contract and first payment, service setup and implementation takes one to three days on average. Partners also can track client progress through MyNatNet and also receive 24-hour tech support as well as intranet/e-mail support.
NationalNet, which is more than 10 years old, previously only sold via word-of-mouth and referrals, but continues to grow year over year. The company plans to roll out a formal direct sales program the first quarter of 2009.
