LeaseWeb, one of the world’s largest hosting brands with a broad portfolio of on-demand cloud infrastructure, has launched a globally available customer referral program. The LeaseWeb Referral Partner Program would feature a straightforward commission structure that offers channel partners the opportunity to generate additional income streams, with up to 16 per cent monthly recurring fees.
The LeaseWeb Referral Program is designed to support companies that don’t operate in the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) industry, yet spot a new hosting opportunity. Potential partners worldwide include IT consultants, systems integrators, managed service providers (MSPs), application developers, and web designers.
Referral Partners would be enabled to simply refer prospects to LeaseWeb’s broad suite of infrastructure solutions, which ranges from bare metal servers to public cloud hosting, private cloud, hybrid cloud, and CDN. Once a prospect is referred, LeaseWeb will manage the quoting process and infrastructure setup.
“This is one of the most rewarding referral programs in the industry, with earnings of up to 16 per cent on referred opportunities, depending on contract lengths,” said Freek Hemminga, Channel & Marketing Manager, LeaseWeb. “The LeaseWeb Referral Program offers our authorized Referral Partners tremendous opportunities to conveniently grow their business and increase their profitability. With minimum effort, partners can generate passive income, strengthen their status as a trusted advisor and build deeper customer relationships.”
A unique margin-enhancing feature of the LeaseWeb Referral Program is the way in which the height of referral fees is determined. “During the first six months, businesses commonly increase their hosting investments by adding more services to their basic infrastructure,” added Hemminga. “Our referral program takes those upgrades into account by determining the referral fees after those initial six months, thereby maximizing the profitability of the program for our partners.”
Key features of the LeaseWeb Referral Program include:
- Recurring fees up to 16 percent – Channel partners can earn up to 16 per cent on referred business opportunities, depending on the length of customer contracts and any discounts given to clients. Final referral fees are set after six months of a client contract, which benefits partner revenue streams.
- Intuitive Partner portal – To help partners build and track their referral business in real-time, LeaseWeb will shortly launch a partner portal with ‘easy-to-use’ referral submission and status tracking tools, monthly commission earning reports, and marketing collateral designed to drive new business.
- No referral limits & flexibility – There are no limits to the number of possible referrals or accumulated referral fees. In addition, no exclusive commitment is required, which provides partners with the choice to refer leads to LeaseWeb whenever the opportunity arises.
The LeaseWeb Referral Partner Program is part of the LeaseWeb Partner Network (LPN), a comprehensive framework supporting LeaseWeb’s partner ecosystem. As part of the LPN, LeaseWeb also has a Reseller Partner Program in place.
