Developing relations with the right partners is proving to be crucial to growth in 2010

Developing relations with the right partners is proving to be crucial to growth in 2010. As affiliate programs continue to appear as one of the main revenue streams on the internet, the UKFast Partner Programme is helping to keep clients strong as they emerge from recession.

According to Lawrence Jones, MD of UKFast, a strategy to actively grow your clients’ businesses really does pay dividends. The hosting provider’s Partner Programme has seen its top ten partners celebrate a 341 per cent growth in just the last four years. This has played a crucial role in another record breaking year for UKFast.

Jones, says, “By providing the fastest hosting and highest level of service and support to our resellers we are also able to reach their clients and facilitate their growth. This brings obvious benefits for everyone involved and as such, our Partner Programme has experienced tremendous growth.”

The growth of the revenue stream has been accelerated by an educational focus. The UKFast partner team is actively involved in clients’ sales pitches, bringing a second level of expertise to the table and effectively shortening the sales process with their potential customers.

This approach is supported by; comprehensive product training that provides partners with an extensive knowledge of the product, quarterly partner conferences in London and Manchester and regular focus groups that bring businesses together to workshop industry problems and share expertise.

Named the ISPA Best Hosting Provider four years consecutively and Best Customer Service Provider in 2009, UKFast has unveiled fast track solutions to its SRPs and their clients, as well as providing them with access to expert level three technicians, dedicated account managers and direct client billing.

In addition to 24-hour technical support, clients also receive server maintenance and monitoring, regular scheduled backups and 100 per cent network uptime guarantee. On top of this, UKFast’s various sponsorship deals offer great hospitality locations (from sporting events to awards ceremonies) for partners and their clients to network and develop new opportunities.

With almost 250,000 domains on the UKFast network and network growth reported at twice the rate of the national average, a partnership with UKFast delivers market-leading solutions from a company that is recognised for its unrivalled network performance, customer service, technical support, security and reliability.
