Cash Bonuses are Exclusively Funded by PlanetOne
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. and LAS VEGAS (CHANNEL PARTNERS CONFERENCE), February 27, 2014–Scottsdale-based master agency PlanetOne Communications has announced that it has funded a $50,000 cash giveaway to reward partners who sell orders totaling more than $5,000 in monthly revenue.
Separately, PlanetOne said that it is also offering $500 prizes during its partner events at this week’s Channel Partners Conference & Expo.
The rewards program and cash giveaway applies to orders submitted for services from PlanetOne’s preferred vendors. Rewards will be given on a sliding scale: the larger the order, the bigger the payout.
“This is a cash bonus program that is exclusively funded by PlanetOne, so these rewards are in addition to the carrier bonus incentives that we’re already offering,” explained company CEO Ted Schuman. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for sales partners to further capitalize on strategic, larger enterprise prospects that can carry their businesses to the next level.”
PlanetOne president Lauren Shapiro added that the market is creating a rich opening for partners to pursue new customer segments. “We are seeing a big shift in demand for cloud-based services and TDM replacement in particular,” she explained “In addition to our traditional base of small and medium-sized businesses (SMB), larger businesses and enterprises are embracing this technology. Channel partners are well-positioned for that market because of their consultative role as technology advocates. We want to reward them for those efforts and help them build their business for the future.”
The giveaway is the latest in PlanetOne’s ongoing investment in the channel, which includes an expansion of the agency’s channel team and the recent launch of the Telecom Partner Toolbox (www.planetonetelecomtoolbox.com), which offers partners go-to-market, customizable resources to bring value to their customers as they introduce new technology solutions.
At the Channel Partners Conference & Expo this week, PlanetOne will be offering $500 prizes for a few lucky partners among those attending the company’s Toolbox demonstrations. The demos are scheduled for 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Feb. 27 at room Sands 301.
Shapiro added, “For PlanetOne, channel partners are at the heart of everything we do, and we’re on an exciting and strategic path this year to continue to build value for their businesses. We’ll continue to be there to support them as they expand into bigger opportunities and embrace innovative technologies.”
