DALLAS, May 26, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Few can doubt the impact and effectiveness of blogging; it is changing the way businesses are relating to customers. Last month, Summit Merchant Solutions rolled out a blog with the goal of increasing communications with current merchant services clients, as well as influencing potential clients.

"Our chief goal is to provide useful information to our clients," says Tony Norrie, General Manager for Summit Merchant Solutions. "We'll give ongoing updates about our products and merchant services to help our clients in their business."

As a sales division of Certified Payment Processing, Summit is a full-service provider of specialized merchant services and also leases point-of-sale payment processing terminals that quickly handle all forms of payments: debit card and credit card transactions, gift cards, checks and contactless cards. Summit products and services help businesses increase revenue, improve payment processing efficiency and security, and provide their customers with the most popular payment methods.

"Of course, from time to time, we'll also promote our products and services to potential clients," says Norrie. "We want to provide the information to merchants who come to our site wanting to learn more about who we are, what we have to offer and how it can impact their business."

The blog will also be utilized to report news, as well as changes and issues in the payment processing industry that could impact business, such as PCI Compliance. In addition, the blog will be used to stay in touch with team members, particularly the sales associates who work out in the field, offering sales tips and motivational material to help them succeed in their important role.

"We also plan to make this one of the tools in our ongoing recruiting efforts," says Norrie. "Those considering a job in the merchant services sales field or wanting to learn more about working with us, will get the information they need."

Summit is looking for those interested in professional advancement and the potential of financial growth to work as Sales Consultants throughout the country. Account consultants visit businesses in their area and present Summit's proven payment credit card and debit card processing products and value-added merchant services. Summit provides pre-set appointments, with no cold calling required. Appointments are set Monday through Friday, between 9 am and 5 pm.

Sales consultants are offered uncapped compensation, flexible hours, a generous bonus and residual package and comprehensive benefits. In addition, there's extensive training, with ongoing, one-on-one coaching, all designed to help the consultants to succeed.

Those interested in learning more about working with Summit are encouraged to call 800-567-8196, or visit the CPP Recruiting site.
