Airtime distributor teams up with companies to provide dealers with training, bonuses and support package

Mainline Digital Communications is offering dealers increased commissions and bonuses to help drive T-Mobile and Orange business.

Dealers will also receive a free car kit cradle worth £29.99 with every BlackBerry smartphone purchased this month and a £20 bonus on all contracts connected to T-Mobile in July.

Bonuses are in addition to the monthly commissions they already receive as part of their commissions package.

Dealers can also download a dual-branded sales toolkit from the Mainline website, which consists of a range of marketing collateral for in the showroom, on the road or online.

Mainline managing director Andrew Boden (pictured) said: “The training, bonus and marketing initiatives are a great way to help our dealers to generate sales and additional revenues.”

Mainline has also launched a three-month lead generation campaign for its top ten performing dealers. The BlackBerry telemarketing programme will target businesses throughout the UK, with the aim of generating quality new sales leads.
