You might have had one of these. It’s your birthday and someone has given you a present that maybe looks a little bit damaged, perhaps a little bit old and dusty, like they might have had it sat in their kitchen cupboard for the past six months…?
It’s a phenomenon known as regifting; when you receive a present from someone and subsequently give it to someone else under the auspices of a fresh purchase. I suspect it’s more common than perhaps most people might like to let on, I know I have done it in the past (sorry Mum!) and frankly there is a time and place for it. Bear with me, think about a time when you may have received something you didn’t necessarily want or need but think that perhaps someone else might like it? Just saying. It’s not wrong, it’s environmentally friendly! Judge me readers, go ahead and judge me.
Now whilst this regifting is taking place at birthday parties all around the country as we speak, there is another form of repackaging that is much more socially acceptable – reselling the Cloud. If you are reading this as an IT professional and hosted Exchange services reseller, looking to promote cloud computing services through Giacom to one of your clients, then this is the bit where your ears may prick up…
The first thing you need to know is that as an agent looking to resell the Cloud is that you can try out and sign up to all Giacom’s services for free with no contract. You get to know how the whole shebang works. You will become the Zen master you were always meant to be. So when that time comes when you need to roll out the expert tips and easy to use platforms that the Cloud and Exchange hosting provide; you are kicking ass in that face-to-face presentation.
There are no upfront fees or targets for signing up clients. You can repackage (not regift!) the Cloud at your leisure for outside businesses looking to expand, use your expertise (gained from learning the ropes) and gain added value to both your income and their expenditure.
You will be investing not only your time (but not money) into the Cloud, but also the future prospects of your clients, ensuring they are able to scale up, increase efficiency, save money and grow their business in a direction that suits them with your help. Once you’ve learnt the tricks of the trade its not just the one company that will benefit, it can increase to multiples of clients and businesses and much like the magic that is iced water, the Cloud is the gift that keeps on giving.
