Find the answer to common questions about the Bloomtools reseller opportunity.
As a Bloomtools reseller you generate your own clients and sell our products to them (as well as your own if you have them). You liaise with the client to assess their needs, then work with HQ to develop their online solution. You are responsible for populating the content on their site, training them and providing ongoing support.
Yes, it is a requirment of the reseller program that the reseller has a Bloomtools website. This makes you more credible because you are using what you are selling and also helps to improve your knowledge of the tools. Plus, many of the dynamically driven parts of your business administration systems link in with your website, including quoting and the knowledgebase.
Resellers attend an intensive training course at Bloomtools HQ on the Gold Coast, which takes you through all our products and systems as well as industry knowledge and standards. This training is included in your reseller fee.
Once you sign a confidentiality agreement, we will give you detailed information on wholesale pricing. Typically it is about 30-40% of the recommended retail price of each product so you can make a healthy profit.
No your clients will not know about your relationship with Bloomtools. Everything is rebranded as yours including the Content Management System, your quotes and emails, and even the footer that appears on your client's website so they will never see anything with Bloomtools branding on it.
Firstly, you need to have a current client base that you can sell our products to - ideally an existing business that you can add a website design service to. Secondly, you need to be willing to put in the effort to build your business as we have minimum sales targets that our resellers need to meet in order to remain in the program. Also, it's important that you share the same passion for the internet and business values that we do.
There are a couple of options for resellers when it comes to billing your clients. We can create your invoices for you automatically for new orders and monthly service fees, or you can do it yourself. Either way the payment goes straight into your account.
The reseller is responsible for providing ongoing technical support to the client, so it is important that you have a wide knowledge of the internet and technology. Any challenges that you cannot resolve on your own will be passed on to the elite team at HQ through your local Bloomtools franchisee and they will give you an answer to pass onto your client. No one from HQ ever liaises with your clients so you are fully responsible for their ongoing support.
Yes, because our software is proprietary and therefore hosted in our own environment. This is good for your client because it is a sophisticated, fully redundant hosting environment and they also get all our free software upgrades automatically.
You have complete control over your retail pricing so you can set is as high or as low as you like. Our wholesale pricing will always remain constant so remember and you will have to pay that no matter what your RRP is.
Our expert marketing team can provide you with ebooks, articles and other generic marketing pieces that you can rebrand as your own. Apart from that, you are responsible for all your own marketing activities.
