Get all the facts on the ProPartner program to help you
conquer web and... the world??
What is the Web123 ProPartner Program?
Glad you asked! It’s a membership program that allows you to resell Web123 content management systems (aka awesome websites that’ll impress the socks off your clients). But it’s much more than that. It’s an opportunity to evolve and expand your business to become a web designer, with no coding, and a whole lot of profit-making. But it’s much more than that. It gives you access to our collective experience of building a profitable web business. You’ll get full access to a huge suite of educational videos, time saving business templates, tools and on-going advice to help you build your very own thriving web development business (yes, without ever having to look at HTML). Here’s the rundown of what our website reseller program gives you in more detail.
How do I create a Web123 website?
Is your mouse finger working? Great, that’s pretty much all you need. Just click and create a website in minutes. OK, yes there’s more to it than that, but we’ve designed our website builder to shortcut all the boring parts of website building, so you can focus on the things that are fun… and profitable.
What if I don’t know anything about creating a website?
Do you know the basics of good design? Can you turn on a computer? Can you use Microsoft Word without swearing too much? Then, that’s all you need. Seriously. If you don’t believe us, we have a video where you can watch a designer create a website using our website builder. It’s an eye-opener!
Do I have to install any software to use Web123?
Nope, a web browser and internet connection is all you need. So technically, you could build websites on your iPad in Bali if you wanted to.
What do I get for my monthly ProPartner membership fee?
You become part of the Web123 geek family. We don’t just sell you websites, we‘re giving you a fully-supported system to build a successful web business. More details? OK, there’s unlimited education and support. Access to build and sell Australia’s most powerful small business CMS websites… the potential to make thousands of extra dollars every month, and don’t forget our geek love and devotion of course. If you want more information have a look at what else you get with Web123.
Are there any guidelines on how I can mark up services and make more profit?
Abso-friggin-lutley!. This is where the ProPartner system really rocks. We’re always looking for ways to help you make more profit working smarter, not harder. Once you become a ProPartner you’ll be provided with a full list of Web123 ProPartner pricing and service options via our special wholesale rate card. You can download your ProPartner rate cad in our secure online portal once you join. But, even better, there’s a whole heap of videos in our ‘get smart’ educational area that teaches you how to upsell like a pro, make a great profit AND deliver a great service all at the same time.
I don’t know the first thing about web design. How can Web123 help and how much would it cost?
We have a full team of expert web designers on staff. If you ever need their services you can access them at a wholesale rate. We list all our rates for design services in the ProPartner rate card. But, once you’ve got a few websites under your belt and you’ve established your web business, it might be an idea to employ a designer to help you deliver projects. Even hiring a trusty content monkey will make a MASSIVE difference to your bottom line. And inside the ‘get smart’ educational library of videos, we’ll show you how!
How is Web123 better than Wordpress?
Are you kidding us? Really?? Look WordPress is a great content management system, sure, but it’s not for the faint of heart. You’ll need to source your own designs, plugins, and possibly a developer or two to make it all work for you. Then don’t forget all the plug-in upgrades you’ll need to install yourself as new versions become available, and when good WordPress plug-ins go bad and they conflict with each other. Oh it can be a pain in the @ss! Heaps of Web123 clients come to us when they realise how difficult and expensive their “free” WordPress site ends up being. Remember that in addition to our in-house developer/marketing/design teams, Web123 also offers free software upgrades that happen automatically, and, UNLIMITED support so anytime you or your clients need a hand, a real, live geek will happily help. Just try finding a support phone number for WordPress!
How can I include Web123 websites in my service offering?
Web123 websites can fit into a broad range of service offerings. For example, if you’re in marketing, you might promote it as an ‘affordable online strategy’. If you’re in design it gives you opportunity to expand your artistic offerings to web design - without having to learn all the techy bits, you could promote it as ‘taking your branding to a digital level’.
You can push the Web123 brand, or you can downplay it. The choice is yours. You can promote Web123 as you would promote any other part of your business: through your own website, referral networks, traditional advertising, SEO, you name it.
Really, when it comes to including our services as your own, you’re only limited by your creativity! The only thing we ask is that you don’t promote your reseller services directly on our Web123-branded pages, such as the Web123 Facebook page. That might make it a bun-fight between ProPartners, and we’re about building a friendly web design community not rattling the community’s cage!
Are ProPartners locked into using only Web123 for their website projects?
Nope. While we are super excited to have you on as a Web123 ProPartner, we know you might not want to use us for every website project, and that’s OK. If you think another web developer is going to be a better fit for a particular client feel free to use them. Then come back to us with your tales of woe and promise never to do it again… Just kidding! Mostly.
If I’m building a client website with you am I locked into using Web123 for extra services like copywriting or SEO?
Nope. You can use as many or as few of our offerings as you like.
Do I have to use Web123 layouts for my website designs?
Unless you’ve requested a full custom website from us, you will need to start off with one of our layouts. Then you’ll make it your own with your unique design flair adding buttons and banners and calls to actions. Our in-house design team will help you as you’re learning to use the Web123 Website Builder at the beginning and then, normally, you do your own thing. Hopefully you’ll soon see just how easy it is, but yes, you could enlist a third party web design partner to do that bit for you if you wanted.
Are there sales quotas required? Is this the same rate for all or based on region?
Once you’ve made it into our exclusive ProPartner Program, and you’ve completed the basic training, we know you’ll have all the skills you’ll need to sell and build websites. We expect you’ll sell at least one website every month. Some of our most successful ProPartners have come from the tiniest towns and they’re doing many sites a month, so yes, that one website per month is the minimum, no matter what region you’re working in.
What is the cost of becoming a ProPartner?
$199 a month, no big upfront investment and no contracts. This small amount gets you access to the ProPartner ‘get smart’ learning program, heaps of resources, the intuitive website builder with 75+ layouts, quote templates, sales resources, marketing materials, and more!
What if I don’t know much about websites or online marketing?
We’ve got over 100 exciting training videos and business building tools exclusively for our ProPartners. Don’t be overwhelmed by the number, each video is practical and bite-sized so you can choose what you want, take away what you need, with zero jargon and absolutely no fluff. For example if you’re a little unsure about how SEO works or how to ensure you can get a return for your clients then we are here to help. In the coming months we’ll be doing a lot more to help build your knowledge and become the best web expert in your area. Stay tuned as we take our ProPartners to a whole new level!
Who maintains the website – the client or the ProPartner?
Our websites are designed to be easy and DIY. As a ProPartner, you will be responsible for teaching the client basic principles of managing the website. Both you and the client will have full access to our web geeks in support, but how you divide the ongoing maintenance of the website between you and the client is up to you. One thing we can guarantee is that you’ll never ever have to install a software patch or upgrade, we do that automatically for you as we develop new features.
Are there white label options for Web123 websites?
Not at this time. One of the top-selling features of Web123 is our awesome support crew, which means that both you and your clients can ring us any time for help. Most of our current ProPartners enjoy swinging off our geeky coat tails and leveraging off our brand, so they prefer to promote themselves as resellers anyway. That being said, white label options are something we are currently considering and will keep you posted on any updates.
Can I have a link to my website in the footer of my clients’ sites?
Yes! You can even tell us exactly what wording you’d like e.g. ‘Another Project by ABC Creative’ and display your logo too. We don’t display our logo on your clients’ sites however we do publish a link next to yours which reads ‘Powered by Web123’.
What are the design options and limitations with Web123 layouts?
We offer over 75 fully customisable website layouts and are adding more each month. Although our system is based on set layouts, that doesn’t mean you’ll lose your creative license. In your initial training sessions we’ll teach you how to make the most of each layout and see just how flexible it is, and after that you’ll see why we say no two websites ever look the same… even on the same layout.
What do the monthly “ongoings” include?
Each month the client will be charged a fee covering some basic services for the website (or you can be charged on their behalf if you’d prefer). The basic fee is $49, which includes website hosting, optional email hosting, software upgrades, educational material and unlimited support and training. This amount increases with other add-on services, such as a shopping cart (currently extra $20/month), email marketing (extra $10/month), or a booking system (extra $20/month). Just check the rate card if you’re ever unsure to get the most up to date prices.
Do I get a cut of the ongoings?
Yes, but you need to hit the magic number of 10 client websites first. Then from that moment on, you get your cut of all your client’s ongoings for being Web123 awesome! Please check the ProPartner portal for the latest details.
Are there any hidden fees?
No. Unless it’s a tiny figure that says ZERO. Unlike other web providers out there, Web123 has no limits on the amount of pages or products you can add to your clients’ websites. Each client gets a generous allocation of 50GB of data transfer per calendar month. Most small business websites use less than 1GB of data transfer per month. So it’s all good you for and it’s all good for your clients.
So you came, you saw...
