OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – VoIP Your Life, LLC a residential and business VoIP service provider of Hosted PBX and unlimited SIP Trunk communication services announces its official launch of its 1-VoIP channel program for its rapidly-expanding nationwide communications network.
According to Bob Pierce, Vice President of Sales for VYL, 1-VoIP’s growth is “substantially attributable to the combination of our high-quality, feature-rich service offering coupled with a strong commission incentive to our agent partners.” Pierce adds, “We were patient in developing this program. We could have rolled this out months ago had we simply relied on spreadsheets and margin analysis. We know how to price competitively. What we wanted was something different; we needed input from the channel to help us formulate an offering that worked not only for the end-user customer, but for our agent partners as well. At VYL, we understand the importance of recognizing that agents are customers too and we are in a highly competitive sector for productive agents.” Targeted agents include companies selling voice and data communications services, hardware, systems integrators, value added resellers, consultants and others.
The 1-VOIP agent program “compensates agents at the top-end of the commission spectrum” according to Pierce, who added “In fact, from our market research, our commission compensation often exceeds what our competitors are paying in commissions for the same service.” Pierce contends that the 1-VoIP channel model is a win-win-win offering because the customer receives great service, the agent partner’s commissions allow them to realize more revenue per-sale than what is available from other service providers, and VYL realizes inorganic customer growth.
Our channel program is designed to provide existing and prospective agents the best overall program for building a lasting and lucrative business selling VoIP communications services anywhere across the United States,” according to Pierce, who adds, “Agents want to work with carrier class providers that are financially solid, pay on time, and own a strong, reliable network. They don’t want to hear about revenue minimums and holdbacks; they just want to sell a good service, at a competitive rate and get paid for it.”
Under the program, partners sign a 1-year agent agreement. While specific terms of the agreement remain confidential, Pierce did say the program does not include standard clauses required by most competitors, like monthly revenue quotas, agent exlusivity or commissions that are kept by the carrier after the agreement with the agent terminates.
“Agents want to spend the majority of their business day working on their core business activities, not chasing support issues or commission payments,” said Dennis Smith, operations manager of VYL. “We’ve worked tirelessly to remove obstacles between the channel market and service providers. To do that, we focused on three things: (1) building a rock-solid service that agents want to sell and businesses want to purchase; (2) setting competitive pricing that allows the agent to succeed in the marketplace; and (3) creating a strong commission plan without all the “gotchas” found in most agent agreements.”
