J2 Buys Competition (and other M&A)

Sub-Agent Basics

December 6, 2010

I received an early morning call from the West Coast today from a woman who is a sub-agent selling Sprint mobile services. She's not having a good day. Here's a few reasons why:


  1. She isn't getting paid from her master agent.
  2. She doesn't have a contract in place with her master agent.
  3. She was unaware of charge-backs.
  4. She has no way to track commissions.
  5. She was not clear on who she could sell Sprint mobile services to.

Hence, her not getting paid.

Without competition, the monopoly ISP doesn't have to build out (see Embarq in Hardee County, FL for an example). Without competition, prices are inflated.

December 2, 2010

I spent yesterday with an MSO Enterprise sales force training them on what SIP is and how to sell it. The key is the Value Statement.

Today, there are over a thousand companies selling voice services. It comes down to what your Value Proposition is.

Clients say they want to save money, but really they want reliable, quality dial-tone.
