Why use a partner marketing agency?

Engaging and empowering partners is now an essential part of successful B2B technology marketing. Yet many businesses are unsure how best to structure and manage their partner programs. The truth is there are a limited number of potential partners in the technology sector, and competition for their loyalty is fierce. To stand out, you need to reward and nurture the partners you already have, plus uncover creative ways to attract new partners to your network. By focusing on building a unique, sustainable and authentic partner program, you can create value for your partners, their customers, and your own brand.

Splendid has been developing IT B2B channel marketing programs for over a decade, giving our team a deep understanding of partner program mechanics, marketing and communication. We help you analyse your program through a commercial, customer and competitive lens, then recommend specific strategies and tactics to help you continually improve and evolve your program over time.

Splendid’s approach to Partner Marketing

Quality over quantity
When it comes to partner programs, it’s far better to have a smaller group of highly engaged partners than a vast network of partners with a more casual relationship to your brand or products. Rather than casting the net too wide, we help you focus on the partners that are the best fit for your technology business.
Growth through insight

It’s not uncommon for technology brands to struggle with measurement of the performance of their partner network. This leads to inefficient marketing investment, or a disengaged and unmotivated partner network. As an experienced partner marketing agency, we focus on providing you with the visibility you need, so you can build more high value relationships.

FAQs about B2B social media services

Most technology vendors don’t sell directly to end customers, but through their partner network. A partner can usually provide a level of implementation expertise, day-to-day support and services that the vendor can’t offer alone. Ideally, being part of a network also delivers important benefits to the partner – making them more likely to recommend one vendor over another.

For a technology vendor, a partner program provides an opportunity to foster a network of loyal businesses who are out in the market, actively promoting and selling their products and services. For partners, it can mean ready access to tools and information to assist the sales process and help them grow their own revenue. This could include access to exclusive information about the vendor’s products and services, latest bundles and promotions, coaching and education on advanced selling techniques, sales incentives and bonuses, marketing collateral, networking opportunities, learning and development initiatives, and more.

While the underlying principles of a successful partner program are consistent, there are important differences in the execution of programs within the technology sector – and varying levels of sophistication. While more mature programs often offer tiering and collaboration, many simply don’t provide enough value to partners to encourage them to recommend a vendor’s products or services.
