Cisco Launches Linksys Partner Rewards Channel ProgrammeTweet
New home networking channel programme will offer education, marketing tools and financial rewards to Linksys channel partners
Cisco today announced the launch of the Linksys Partner Rewards channel programme in the UK. The programme has been designed to not only educate partners and keep them informed on the latest trends, but also reward them for successfully selling Linksys products. The programme is now open for registration to retailers, etailers, resellers and other Linksys channel partners.
The Linksys Partner Rewards programme is divided into three levels, offering benefits tailored to each level. Each partner enrolling in the program starts with a one-star rating and can increase its rating to three stars by achieving e-learning goals and revenue targets. At launch, the programme will include the following benefits per tier:
|1 Star||2 Stars||3 Stars|
|Linksys Partner certification||Linksys Partner certification||Linksys Partner certification|
|Access to Partner promotions||Access to Partner promotions||Access to Partner promotions|

|Marketing library access||Marketing library access||Marketing library access|
|Linksys tech support access||Linksys tech support access||Linksys tech support access|
|Revenue target rewards||Increased revenue target rewards|
Each quarter Cisco will provide new e-learning modules in the Linksys Partner Rewards web portal about specific products or technologies in three knowledge levels. Partners in the two- and three-star levels have to complete at least one module per quarter in order to maintain their level – as well as reach their revenue target. In the near future, instructor-led learning sessions are planned to be available to partners through the Cisco WebEx® online training platform. Cisco also plans to let partners customise and order point-of-sale materials through an online application in the near future.
The Linksys Partner Rewards programme is available starting today in countries listed below. For more information and registration please visit: www.linksyspartnerrewards.com
