Incentives for Marketing Resellers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ad Center have issued promotional codes for customers to encourage them to sign up for the scheme(£100).
    However, many web services providers and marketing consultants like ourselves can refer business clients to sign up to the Ad Center scheme as they look to people like us to recommend and advise them.

    The promotional vouchers are an incentive for our customers to sign up, but what about an incentive for us as resellers to refer them in the first place (vouchers, %commission etc).

    Rather than targeting individual businessess, targeting marketing specialists like ourselves could be a more effective way for Ad Center to increase clients and market share against Yahoo and Google. Is Ad Center considering this?

  • I completely agree. MSN are in desperate need of a system that allows agencies who manage & refer Adcentre business that is not billed via the agency to function & prosper (as Yahoo & Google allow).

     

    We have an account manager who can manage accounts billed via ourselves but cannot assist or advise on business (the majority of our clients) who are billed direct.

     

    We too have had Google only clients being offered vouchers by telesales companies (Base Connections) working for Adcentre which the clients ask us to use. We set these clients up within a billing account only to be told that the vouchers are unusable unless we create (yet another) master client account.

     

    Please sort it it out. You & we are looking stupid.
