As you begin to see the rise in the number of people beginning to invest in streaming services due to their many benefits, it is easy to understand why the popularity is widely increasing.
The discovery of IPTV itself and the reselling of IPTV are now also becoming broadly recognised among the public. Although more people are learning about the topic, it is still a growing industry that may take some time to learn about.
But what is an IPTV reseller? How is it possible to do with IPTV services? How much money is at stake to earn as an IPTV reseller in today’s market? These are the questions we will be running through in this blog – so if you’re interested, read along to learn more!
What is an IPTV Reseller?
An IPTV reseller has the ability to sell the IPTV subscriptions on behalf of an IPTV provider – but these resellers are not specifically assigned to these companies to resell. These IPTV resellers work on a freelance basis – so any IPTV subscription services that they feel are worth reselling (good value for money, highly rated provider, etc) will be taken on as part of their IPTV reseller business.
Working on their own terms away from IPTV providers is due to the separate legal entities between the two. However, once IPTV resellers begin their own business, they may hire staff members/ sales teams to reach out to people who potentially want the service.
Each successful IPTV reseller will typically be in control of their pricing and or marketing of how they gain and retain clients. With providers openly looking for IPTV resellers, there are many opportunities out there to contact and become working partners.
However, not every IPTV provider will want to work with a reseller as there are many resellers that produce poor results through their services for customers. The crucial knowledge that an IPTV reseller will need is to be a good salesman, understand the current entertainment industry (new IPTV devices, new entertainment, etc) and learn the details inside and out of your role for happy customers.
Becoming an IPTV Reseller – What Do You Need?
If you find this interesting and are slowly realising the opportunity at hand to be involved in this growing market – what does it take to become a reseller? Like any start-up business, this will not be a walk in the part by any stretch of the imagination. However, it does require a low-cost starting point, so you can get going with little amounts of funds available.
If you don’t have discipline, hard work and consistency as a part of your natural ethics – then you may find this difficult. But, if you feel as though you have these traits, then here is what you will need to do to partake in this business venture.
Investing in a Brand/ Domain Name
What is the name of your business going to be? This is what you’re going to have to spend a good chunk of time deciding (so you stand out above the competition). Make sure the name is relevant to the niche as this will be a ‘shopping aisle’ so to speak, for your customers to purchase your service(s).
Not only will you need this for your website, but opening up social media channels to supply content for your potential customers through a multitude of different platforms is vital. The broader range of reach due to different target audiences on each platform will be sure to benefit your brand.
Find a Trustworthy IPTV Reseller Panel Provider
Moving on to potentially the hardest step of becoming an IPTV reseller, is finding a reliable reseller panel provider. An IPTV reseller panel is essentially where you will find the IPTV providers that you will work with.
Therefore, there will be thousands of options available for you to choose from when it comes to providers. Consequently, there will always be an IPTV provider that will be unreliable and have a terrible report and review.
As there are a plethora of reseller programs and dissimilar subscriptions – you will have to do your research. Not only will you want to invest in a highly rated provider, but you will want to keep your profit margins as high as possible for your own gain.
Payment Gateway/ Package Subscription Plans
Once you have chosen your desired provider with the criteria we have set, the next step is to set up your payment gateway. Being a business, you want to get paid quickly and effectively by your customers – therefore, choosing a dependable gateway provider will give you the best chance of receiving all your money on a good schedule.
No matter the situation, you have to make sure the customer comes first. Although you want your paycheck, a customer may need support for a refund and you have to ensure that this is an option.
Not only that, you must supply a reasonable package price with structured package plans for people to pick from. For example, a customer may want to pay on a month-to-month basis – opposed to someone else who wants to pay yearly.
Ensuring that your margins are high enough to where you’re satisfied but keeping a price that compares to the market well and the customers can afford is crucial to your success.
How Much Money Can You Make as an IPTV Reseller?
Upon understanding the formula to success for being a legitimate competitor in the IPTV reseller industry – it is now a question of how much money can an IPTV reseller make from this business gig. Due to the low investment start-up costs, unlike a typical standard business – this e-commerce business will require little to no start-up funds required.
The money to be made is the amount of effort, dedication and time you want to put into this business. If you don’t have the willpower to follow the steps and sustain your business and please customers – it will be near impossible to retain any money.
Although the monthly or yearly subscriptions you may gain will be lucrative and come in on a residual basis, making sure you have the skills at hand to run a business successfully is needed. However, everybody starts from somewhere and if you’re passionate about dispensing high-quality services to people – then this could be ideal for you!
