Evolve Your Channel Strategy with Gamification
Challenge: Partner Programs Lack Focus and Loyalty
A successful channel strategy requires partners who are engaged, inspired, and successful. Partner portals may be designed to keep partners up-to-date, distribute leads, and identify best practices, but partners have to be motivated to use them.
- Partners manage many relationships and receive a flood of product and promotional information. How can you stand out?
- Partners sell what they know and getting to know your product value has to be easy and rewarding.
- Partner certification programs become rote exercises to increase leads and opportunities without changing behavior.
- Top partners hold onto their knowledge rather than sharing it, creating silos of success.
