Some of our Microsoft Partners are doing just that!
With the standard Partner of Record fee of 18% in the first year, plus the additional 12% that comes with enrollment in Tier 3 of the Cloud Champions Club, partners were already receiving 30% in year one… and with the Big Easy offer that BVA mentioned a few posts back, they are now eligible to receive an additional 15% in Partner Subsidy funds!
Let’s do some math:
Your customer wishes to purchase 50 User Subscription Licenses to Office 365…. You’ve shown them their options and they elect the E3 plan at $24 a month per user.
In year one, your customer will pay => 50 USLs * $24 * 12 Months => $14,400
As a Tier 3 Cloud Champ, you are eligible to receive => $2592 (18% Standard POR) + $1728 (12% Tier 3 Cloud Champ Incentive) + $2160 (15% Big Easy Partner Subsidy) => $6480.00
And we haven’t even talked about the revenue you can earn by helping your customers deploy, migrate, and get trained on their new technology…
