An Important Note on IPTV Reselling
Consider this a disclaimer that we need to get out of the way immediately. The business of IPTV reselling should not be interpreted as a simple opportunity to earn a quick buck. Like any business, this journey will require research, patience and hard work on your part.
Some people might initially get the sense that becoming an IPTV reseller is very easy and that a minimal amount of effort is all that is necessary to earn some easy cash. This is simply not the case.
A good amount of your time and energy will be needed to pull this off. You will have to learn some in-depth knowledge about the specific characteristics of your IPTV service and your market audience (something we will discuss in more detail later on).
You will also have to realize that while you can make some decent money, it will take both time and dedication to become really profitable. How much you can earn ultimately depends upon your work ethic and skills. And like any business, you will, of course, be dealing with competitors. This is by no means a “get rich quick” scheme.
We don’t say this to alarm or dissuade anyone but it is important to approach this with a level head and have all the facts before you get started. If done correctly, then IPTV reselling can become a very decent source of money for you.
The Benefits of Becoming an IPTV Reseller
Now that we’ve gotten the serious talk out of the way, let’s discuss some of the reasons why you should become an IPTV reseller. While we have stated that it will take effort on your part to have a thriving business, that doesn’t change the fact that it is still considered to be easier than say, opening up a restaurant.
For one thing – and we bet that this is part of what really attracts people to this practice in the first place – IPTV reselling is a low-investment business. It takes a relatively small amount of money to get started. If you’ve got a few hundred or a few thousand dollars lying around in your savings then you can get started faster than you may think. This is by no means the type of business venture that requires a huge loan from the bank. In fact we offer a starter package that is just $70!
Another nice thing about becoming an IPTV reseller is that you do not have to be a tech wizard. Don’t get me completely wrong though. You will have to know a good deal about IPTV services in general, especially the one you plan on reselling yourself. But it doesn’t require you to have a degree in computer science. Anyone can learn how to become an IPTV reseller regardless of their academic or career background.
One last thing we’ll say about the business of IPTV reselling is that it is highly scalable. This means that you can easily make adjustments to your business depending on how many customers you have at any given time. If you receive a surge of new customers, for example, all you have to do is stock up on more subscriptions or monthly credits from the IPTV service of your choice. You won’t have to deal with hiring new staff, buying new kitchenware or renting out a larger building, as compared to running a restaurant for example, which is one of the most popular businesses in the world for novices who want to start their own business.
Try the Service Out and Get Familiar with it Yourself
We highly recommend actually testing out the service for yourself. Maybe you’re already a customer and want to resell for use. You should then use the service as often as possible to become accustomed to all its details. Know all of its functions and features, know what channels it has, etc.
Be sure to also use it on as many devices as possible. This is very important because your customers will also be using your IPTV service on a variety of platforms, so you need to know how it works on each one. If a customer comes to you with a question about how to use the service on a phone rather than a TV then you’ll need to know how that works so you can deliver solid customer service.
Things like consistently strong streaming capabilities, a useful schedule guide and compatibility with as many devices as possible are considered very good aspects in any IPTV streaming service. We have a fully loaded service with thosands of live channels including over 1000 locals, 10,000 movies, 75,000 shows on demand, catch up and much more.
Lastly, once you decide you are ready to resell, we will offer you a package of reseller credits and technical components that are necessary for being an IPTV reseller. We have a team that is on stand by that can assist with rebranding also. We have very affordable websites ( $125 ) that come turn key ready. We can create a flier for $25. We can get you your own custom app for as little as $50. Anything you need we have someone that can do it.
The reseller credits are usually bought in bulk and allow you to convert them to subscription lines for your customers. As an example, Each credit is worth one month’s subscription. You can obtain credits for as little as $5 each. You then sell to your customers monthly subscriptions, charging them $20 each “or whatever you choose to sell it for” and using one of your credits for each subscription sold. Once you run out of credits, you simply buy another package of credits.
These packages will vary in cost depending on which package you elect to start with. This is also the first step in investing money into your business which brings us to our next section.
Taking Stock of Your Finances
Because IPTV reselling is such a flexible business, people of varying financial situations will be able to get in on this opportunity. We’ve mentioned earlier that IPTV reselling is a low-cost investment, which is true, but you don’t want to aimlessly spend cash even if it is just a couple of hundred dollars.
First, be certain about how much money you want to put in initially. Let’s say you have $1,000 for example. That means you should not go over this amount when buying credits for your reseller account.
For example, if you have $1000 and a single subscription for a customer costs $20, that doesn’t mean you have to spend all of your money at the beginning all at once by acquiring credits. It’s best to only spend a fraction of it at the beginning by buying, say, 20 credits.
The main reason we suggest this is because acquiring customers can be a slow and difficult process (something we’ll discuss soon in our marketing section). If you buy 100 credits and can only sell 25 of them in the first month then you’re going to be losing money that otherwise could have been spent in other domains of your business, like branding or building up a social media presence. Don’t overdo it and think small at first.
Understanding where your break-even point is is a crucial part of managing your finances. Once you’ve made enough profits to offset your investments, then you can really begin to start expanding your business by purchasing more subscription credits, online advertisements and so on.
You may also want to have some cash set aside for advertisements but that’s something we’ll return to later.
Managing Your IPTV Infrastructure
Once you become a reseller, you will have to juggle a few things. Let’s take a look first at IPTV panels.
An IPTV reseller panel is a management program provided by your IPTV service provider that is essentially the digital headquarters of your reselling business. With an IPTV panel you will have the tools needed to organize your IPTV portals and your customers. IPTV panels give you a wide variety of options such as activating or deactivating users, extending lines for clients, creating trial accounts, submitting credit into your account so that you can purchase more subscriptions and more.
To get started, all you need to do is send us a email firstname.lastname@example.org or prefered send a text ( 443-480-6649 ) and let us know your ready to get started!
Marketing and Branding: Become an Effective Salesman
After the initial phases of research and setting up your panel and server you will have to start focusing on what is arguably the hardest and most important part of being an IPTV reseller: getting clients and customers.
Before you begin talking to people and try selling your IPTV service to them, now would be a great time to take stock of what it is that you are selling exactly. Try writing down a list of all the things that our service has to offer. Go over as many details as you can with a fine-tooth comb. You should pay attention to things like the type of content we offer, what regions it is most popular in, the most convenient or intuitive features it has, and so on.
Salesmanship is Essential
Being a good salesman is a very important part of the job, if not the most important. You have to be able to educate potential customers about your IPTV service as much as possible. We also stress that honesty is an integral part of this process. If a customer is asking if we have certain content just be straight with them. Don’t mislead buyers with false advertising as it is not only unfair to them but will only lead to further headaches for you in the form of complaints and a worsened reputation of your business. The best thing you can do for them is put the on a free 24 hour trial.
One thing uou can do is hand out free trials to potential clients. With your IPTV panel, you can set someone up with a free trial easily. You can give them a one day trial or even a one month trial if you so choose. Handing out trials is a good strategy to get people excited about your service and makes them more likely to purchase subscriptions.
Advertising your IPTV business can be accomplished in a variety of ways which actually leaves you a lot of wiggle room. You also get to be completely in charge of your own pricing. This is where you will really begin to feel like your own boss. Im a facebook ads expert and will gladly set you up or teach you how to create a campaign. You can spend as little as $1 a day but in my experience $3 is really the effective minimum.
Don’t Underestimate Other Ways to Get the Word Out
You can advertise your IPTV business in person, for example. Many people think that the internet is the only way to go but this actually isn’t the case. You can easily do something as simple as telling family, friends, co-workers and neighbors about your service and give them the rundown of the service and pricing. Even if they aren’t interested they may very well tell their friends or colleagues about it. Never underestimate the power of word of mouth advertising.
While not so many people do this, you can definitely consider print advertising as an option if you think you have a market in your local community. Buying out ads in newspapers could be an effective strategy to reach several thousands of people but the effectiveness of this ultimately depends on the size of your city.
While in-person advertising is a viable option and should not be overlooked, it is extremely likely that the vast majority of your marketing will be done online as that’s where you can attract as many people as possible. Taking advantage of as many online forums and social media pages will be a big part of running this business.
An account with both Facebook and Twitter is highly recommended. Here you can post comments about the IPTV service as well as provide links to to your IPTV website. These websites provide a great opportunity to describe the nature of this streaming service as well as interact with people interested. You’ll be able to answer any questions they might have.
Know How to Deal with Customers Who Are Already Familiar
Potential customers will be extremely varied when it comes to their knowledge of IPTV products in general. Prepare yourself to be able to respond to people who have used IPTV services before but are thinking of switching providers. Here you can pitch to them why your selected streaming service is a superior option.
There will also be folks who have never used IPTV services before and will, therefore, pose more basic questions. Be ready to provide them with answers that are not too complicated as you don’t want to scare them off. Try to achieve a balance between simplicity and being informative. Consider creating a FAQ page that will help new customers get started. This will reduce the amount of interaction required from your side.
While contacting people directly is part of being a salesman, you should also consider coming up with a “brand” or an image for your business. As stated earlier we have a team available that can assist. Remember, you will have competition so setting yourself apart from other businesses is very important for getting as many clients as possible.
German customers are probably going to have different tastes than American ones as the cultures are quite different in some ways. Take the geographical location into consideration at all times and be mindful of what content is available over there.
Providing Support to Your Customers
Once you’ve acquired some subscribers for your business, you will then have to focus on maintaining a rapport with your customers. Communication and availability are key to having satisfied customers that will continue to use your service and keep on returning to renew their IPTV subscriptions.
All good tech-related businesses need to have a good customer service department that can handle any troubleshooting. It is inevitable that you will eventually have customers emailing or messaging you with questions about the IPTV service. They may be experiencing a dead stream, long loading times or any other technical difficulty. Your job here is to be able to respond back to them as quickly and as effectively as possible.
If you want to go the extra mile then you can try following up with your customers even if they haven’t messaged you with any questions. Simply ask them if they are satisfied with their IPTV service and if there’s anything else you can do to help them out further. They will likely appreciate your dedication and be impressed by your customer support skills. Everyone appreciates a cordial attitude, so always be friendly and willing to lend a helping hand.
One question that a lot of people often ask when getting into this business is “how do I get paid?” One would probably expect a relatively unconventional business would have equally unconventional payment solutions, and this is partially correct.
Various payment solutions are available, so you should try to offer as many options as possible. If your business only accepts one payment method then that will seriously cut down on the number of buyers you can have. You should allow acceptable payments to be made by credit card, Paypal, cash app, zelle and even cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin. It’s ultimately all up to you to use your IPTV billing panel to set up the appropriate payment methods that you want to use.
Getting payments is as easy as selling subscriptions to customers. Once you start getting clients for your service you will be able to manage your received payments manually or via your billing panel and redirect them to your bank account, Paypal account, etc.
Keep in mind that as an IPTV reseller, you are in charge of your own pricing so profit margins are mostly in your own hands. You don’t want to be charging anything that is too expensive, especially at the beginning of your venture. You are totally free to raise your prices later on once you’ve acquired more customers and developed a good reputation. You may want to allow current customers to maintain the same deal they started with though so you don’t scare them off.
Your total earnings will vary based on how many customers you can acquire and what you set your prices at. IPTV resellers can earn as little as a couple of dozen dollars a month to a couple thousand dollars per month. How much you will earn will ultimately depends on you and how you manage your business.
Now that you’ve made it to the end of the article you should have all the information you need to get started on your very own IPTV reselling business. While it may be a low-investment startup, it still will evolve a good amount of work on your part. IPTV reselling can be a little tough at first but with some good customer service and online advertising, you can really build up your customer base over a couple of months and really start to see some profits. How much you make a month is ultimately up to you. We are a tight nit team that I consider family and we look forward to assisti-g you on the beginning of your new journey!
