Virgin Media Business has announced that partners can now sell its new product portfolio, including its 300Mbps broadband bundle aimed at small businesses.
For the first time, SMB products offered by Virgin Media Business will be sold by distribution partners.
DMSL and Daisy Distribution have been named as the two main distribution partners for the programme. Virgin Media Business has also confirmed that it intends to recruit 500 more partners by the end of the year.
The indirect partner channel aims to improve the company’s capabilities to market to small businesses and will run in parallel with the existing desk-based sales team run out of its Manchester office.
Partners can sign up to sell Virgin Media Business products at www.virginmediabusiness.co.uk/partnerwithvmb and, if selected, will undergo in-depth training, be given access to sales and marketing toolkits, receive support by a dedicated indirect partner team within Virgin Media Business, and also be eligible for up to £315 up-front commission per installation.
“I’m thrilled we’ve teamed up with DMSL UK and Daisy Distribution, and hopefully hundreds more partners throughout the year, to sell our market-leading portfolio,” said Mike Smith, director of Small Business at Virgin Media Business.
“Our ultrafast business broadband bundles – with speeds up to four times faster than BT – can help businesses do so much more. Our new indirect partner sales channel, complementing our desk-based team, will allow us to sell more and better service the UK small business community that we know are crying out for a faster internet connection to help them to reach their digital potential.”
