Building a wholesale SIP trunking business is an excellent way to achieve this goal. Once you enroll a client, you get commissions each month for as long as they use the service. The more add-on services they get, the more you earn. There is very little incremental cost to you for adding a customer, aside from the sales and marketing effort you put in. There are some initial setup tasks, but if you choose the right partner, those should be accomplished in a simple, easy-to-use online portal that handles implementation and administration.

Not only is offering SIP trunks wholesale a great way to increase your revenue, it is extremely profitable as well. There’s little upfront cost and if you pick the right partner, they’ll even handle the pesky administrative tasks like taxes and billing.

Hassle Free Installations and Simple Administration
Getting a traditional telephone system up and running is an expensive, time-consuming, and painful chore. SIP trunking is just the opposite. You don’t need physical phone lines, the internet connection that the customer already has is likely sufficient. SIP channels (somewhat equivalent to telephone lines) can be provisioned immediately and easily configured. If the customer needs more channels or more minutes, no problem. They can increase their needs on-demand.
So, why are more IT consultants and telco agents and dealers turning to wholesale SIP trunking? The short answer is that it is an easy and profitable way to increase revenue while delighting your clients. What’s not to love about that?
