Of all the approaches we discuss throughout this series, this should be the easiest! As an established business you are likely to already have a base of happy customers that you have built relationships with, and who know and trust you. This makes for a perfect starting point when it comes to re-selling Hosted Desktops because you’re already half way to a sale!
Start by going through your past and present clients to review their requirements. If you spot an opportunity for them to benefit from hosted desktops, pick up the phone and make an appointment to see them.
We’ve provided you with our white label marketing pack, so make full use of this when you are face to face with clients to deliver a professional and informed presentation aimed at selling the benefits and focusing on features that are important to your client needs.
Review a selection of your existing customers to look for opportunities to discuss Hosted Desktops. When you have a list of potential opportunities, start making phone calls to book appointments.
It won’t always be straight forward getting an appointment or catching the right contact on the phone, so be resilient and start combining your phone calls with other online and offline communication which we will be covering in the upcoming GoCloud Academy emails.
Sign up today as a GoCloud reseller and benefit from a FREE hosted desktop with every 5 hosted desktops you sell or purchase for your own business.
Free hosted desktops are for internal use within your company and are a great way to demonstrate the power of a cloud desktop solution to your clients!
Your free reseller environment includes these 4 Virtual Machines running your own RDS environment:
1 Active Directory Server: store user files, profiles & shared drives
1 Dedicated Firewall: with dedicated IP address and VLAN
1 Remote Desktop Login Gateway: for user login & verification
1 Remote Desktop Server Host: the home of each user’s desktop
Reseller Hosted Desktops will only be provisioned upon request.
Reseller Hosted Desktops cannot be obtained in conjunction with any other offer including discounts.
Only Client Hosted Desktops purchased on or after 12 February 2020 are eligible for this offer.
In addition to the free Reseller Hosted Desktops, additional Reseller Hosted Desktops and resources can be purchased.
The Partner must maintain a ratio of at least 5 purchased Client Hosted Desktops to 1 Reseller Hosted Desktop, so for example if you purchase 10 Client Hosted Desktops, you will have 2 additional free Reseller Hosted Desktops. If the client downsizes to 5 desktops, you will either need to relinquish 1 free Reseller Hosted Desktop, or pay for 1 of your 2 Reseller Hosted Desktops.
The Reseller Hosted Desktop is for use by the Partner only and cannot be resold or hired out for use by third parties.
Partners must have a portfolio of at least 10 Client Hosted Desktops within 12 months to maintain the free subscription.
