Reseller partner

Reseller partner

A reseller partner sells a vendor’s product directly to their client. In contrast to the relationship between affiliate/referral partners who are involved only at the start of the customer’s journey (it gets handed off to the vendor), a reseller partner owns the whole customer relationship.

Resellers are the most complicated partners to work with, and for good reason! They give you access to a relatively limited but highly qualified audience. This is why they often require more support and enablement resources.

Referral partner

Referral partners send qualified leads for your team to close and earn a percentage of the revenue when a deal goes through. The audience of a referral partner is not as large as that of a marketing partner, but a referral partner typically know more about the people they are referring, often having a direct one-to-one relationship, meaning the leads they send tend to be highly qualified.
