Internet service connects users with the web. Internet service providers (ISPs), ranging from large enterprises to smaller ISPs, provide users with this connectivity and related services.
Why It Matters to your customers
The vast majority of businesses rely on the internet to do business. It is integral to an array of functions including communications, e- commerce, payment processing, software delivery and updates, and data storage and backup.
Why Internet Services is an Opportunity
ISPs offer partner programs that can help you grow your business. Telecom agents can partner with an ISP and value-added resellers (VARs) can add internet service as a complementary product to the current solutions in your portfolio so you can offer a total solution. You may also have the option to take advantage of a referral program that could mean recurring revenue for your business. Partnering with an ISP may also give you the opportunity to sell its other products, such as Voice over IP (VoIP) or business Ethernet.
Along with the advantages of the internet also comes some risk. With your internet service clients, also make sure they have security solutions including an enterprise firewall solution, to protect their networks, their data, and their businesses.
