In our last blog, we explained why joining the Virtual PBX Affiliate program was an excellent way to jump aboard the growing wave of VoIP technology and expand your sales opportunities. In this entry, we will discuss a different way to partner with Virtual PBX – the Virtual PBX Agent program.
Virtual PBX Agent Program
The Virtual PBX Agent program is designed for high-volume, hands-on business partners who are interested in providing their customers with a quality virtual phone service, while at the same time continuing to be their customer’s primary point of contact for all things telephony as well as other services the Agent may sell.
Unlike a one-time payout, the Virtual PBX Agent program allows you to build long-term residual income you will continue to get paid a percentage of the customer’s monthly service fee. You will continue to be paid as long as they’re a Virtual PBX customer and as long as you are a Virtual PBX Agent.
