Our new Builder program is designed to work for all levels of affiliate or reseller activity. Whether it's someone who wants to setup a site or two for local non-profits, or a Web design firm with thousands of accounts, we can support them.
Bellevue, Wash. (PRWEB) July 3, 2007
iHost Networks, Inc., a leading provider of on-demand web applications for small businesses, announced today the release of their Builder Program. The program is targeted at Web hosting resellers and affiliates, referred to as "Builders".
iHost Networks developed the program from the ground up and designed it specifically to fit with a builder's needs. This program supports instant activation, 24X7. The ability to resell services and receive affiliate commissions is instantly available. A builder is able to manage all affiliate and reseller activity from a single control panel. The program features generous commissions, deep reseller discounts, helpful resources and most of all, flexibility.
Upon signing up for the program, builders receive a free e-store. The company believes that their builders should have a no-obligation opportunity to see the power of its shopping cart offering. iHost Networks shopping cart service is an online, ecommerce solution that is compatible with all operating systems, including Microsoft XP and Microsoft Vista as well as leading browsers such as Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) and Firefox.
The company designed the builder program's user interface to be simple and intuitive. Upon logging in, builders will see the Builder Dashboard, which provides them with a quick-view summary of current activity for their account. Builders are able to customize their own settings, view/create reports, access resources, visit a builder blog, add new customers, and manage all of their existing customers. Builders are provided with ad banners, informational flyers, sample business proposals, demos, Google AdWords Credits, Yahoo! Search Marketing Ad Credits and guides on where to find customers and tips on how to sell additional services.
John Norton, President of iHost Networks, Inc. said, "Our new Builder program is designed to work for all levels of affiliate or reseller activity. Whether it's someone who wants to setup a site or two for local non-profits, or a Web design firm with thousands of accounts, we can support them."
As a reseller, builders will receive some of the deepest discounts in the industry, up to 50%. They are able to resell services to customers and handle their own billing. If builders are not interested in reselling services or billing customers themselves, they can act as an affiliate or affiliate network member, receiving a 20% commission on all recurring charges for the life of the customer. As an affiliate, they sign up customers and iHost Networks manages the billing. The affiliate network allows users to make money from simply promoting iHost Network's services, most likely to people they do not even know.
Many other affiliate programs in the industry are run by a 3rd party commission company. That can be a great solution for companies that do not have resources to develop and manage an affiliate program themselves. Unfortunately this can create a disconnect between the company providing the service and the individual who is promoting them. The benefit of the builder program is that the reseller and affiliate program is run by the company providing the services.
iHost Networks has a vested interest in the success of the builder. The company also sees the opportunity to share knowledge and industry experience as part of the program. iHost Networks has included platforms for feedback and suggestions from the builders and believe that they will not only receive effective input, but they will be able to respond and implement changes rapidly.
iHost Networks customers will have access to the builder program on all the iHost Networks brands including: http://www.ieasysite.com, http://www.iHostStudio.com, http://www.iHostVM.com, http://www.swiftsite.com, http://www.pagedepot.com, http://www.ihostsites.net, http://www.ihoststores.com and http://www.ihostnamo.com.
