CARTAGENA, Colombia, Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, TM.Biz (http://www.tm.biz) announces a reseller program for domain name resellers interested in offering social network user names services to their customers. The TM.Biz Reseller Program offers a simple programmable interface for resellers to seamlessly offer the real-time reservation of user names to their domain name customers.
"User names from social networks are the new brand identifiers for the Internet. Companies launching new brands must now secure their brands on networks such as Facebook and Twitter before any product announcement," says Tom Barrett, founder of TM.Biz. "With our reseller program, companies can secure their new brand on the leading social networks at the same time they secure their desired domain names from their favorite domain name reseller."
Social media has become the number one activity on the Internet, representing 25% of online time by end-users. While there are about 200 million domain names, the top 20 social networks alone have an estimated two billion user names. The popularity of social networks is demonstrated in the appearance of brand's social network user names on billboards and television commercials instead of their domain name.
The same first-come, first-served procedure exists for user names as for domain names. However, there is no trademark dispute policy for user names. In addition, many social networks follow a practice of not releasing deleted user names. So, brand owners should act fast to secure user names even if they are not planning to use them right away.
By using the TM.Biz programmable interface, resellers can help their customers secure user names on the top 500 social networks. Resellers for TM.Biz enjoy the following benefits:
- Resellers maintain the customer relationship throughout the process
- Resellers develop a new recurring revenue stream from existing customers
- Resellers are provided a turnkey service that does not require any capital investment
Interested resellers should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
