The Best Reasons to Resell SIP Trunking Service
The entire landscape for business communications has been transformed over the last ten years or so. These days businesses of all types and sizes are making the leap from traditional PRI lines to SIP trunking services that rely on the internet to connect calls. This shift represents a huge opportunity for telco agents, dealers, and IT consultants to capture their share of the more than $10 billion that will be spent on SIP trunk services by the end of next year.
Here’s why becoming a SIP trunking reseller deserves serious consideration.
Recurring Monthly Revenue That’s Predictable
One of the chief advantages of reselling SIP trunking service is the ability to create a stream of recurring monthly revenue. This lets you reliably forecast income over the long term. With the best reseller programs, once you sign up a customer, you continue to make commissions as long as they remain active. The more services you sell to each customer, the more your recurring income grows. All it costs you is the marketing and sales effort you make to secure the deal. Getting clients up and running should be easily done in the vendor’s online portal.
For many of the SIP resellers we work with, their number one source of new leads is referrals from their client base. This happens because customers love SIP trunking. They cut their communications costs, sometimes by more than 60%. They also have access to a host of unified communications features and they get a solution that is flexible enough to scale up or down based on business needs. If you’ve already established yourself as a trusted partner for clients, it should be fairly easy to convince them to give SIP trunking a try. This will help deepen your relationship and keep them coming back to you for a long time.
Value Added Services for Even More Revenue
Becoming a SIP trunking reseller will increase the baseline revenue of your business. You can make each customer even more profitable by complementing your customer’s SIP solution with value added services. If you choose the right SIP reseller program, you’ll be able to offer:
- Inbound Toll-Free Services
- International Long Distance
- Fax over IP
- Fax to Email
- Direct Inward Dial (DID) Numbers
Simple Deployments and Easy Administration
Installing and deploying a traditional telephone system is expensive. It takes a long time and it’s a pain in the neck. None of that is true with SIP trunking. There are no physical phone lines to order. The bandwidth that your customer already has in place is probably more than sufficient for SIP trunking. SIP channels, which function similarly to a traditional telephone line, can be provisioned on-demand and easily set up. If the client’s needs change and the want more channels or minutes, the adjustment can be made immediately. The best SIP reseller programs take care of taxes and billing for you, so you can focus your efforts on signing up new customers and supporting the ones you already have.
Smart IT consultants, telco agents, and dealers are taking advantage of the market’s move to SIP. They are building strong recurring revenue streams, increasing profitability, and making customers happy. Why not join them?
