Webroot Channel Edge Reseller Program Empowers Partners to Increase Profitability

New Webroot Program and Incentives

In addition to delivering attractive profit margins, Webroot's innovative new program includes access to the Channel Edge Partner Toolkit for all partners. This toolkit contains an innovative set of sales and marketing tools designed to help partners rapidly grow their business with Webroot support at every stage of the sales cycle, from customer education and prospecting, to successful deal closure.

 

Key elements of the Channel Edge Partner Toolkit include:

 

  • Web Content Syndication delivers product content, trial software downloads and whitepapers directly from a partner's website. Prospects can educate themselves on Webroot solutions and initiate a trial that links back to the partner. All of the information is updated automatically by Webroot, so partners and their prospects, always have the most current materials.
  • The Resource Center provides a wide range of pertinent sales and marketing materials directly to partner sales and marketing teams, giving them instant access to the information they need when they need it—without the hassle of remembering login information.
  • Social Syndication empowers partners to become a savvy security thought leader and influential voice in promoting security solutions and services to their prospects. Through this syndication module, partners can easily push fresh content and communicate with potential buyers through multiple social media sites.
