No longer can you afford to let just any random partner dip into a bucket of MDF and just hope to see a measurable return on your haphazard channel marketing investments. In the age of results-based marketing, it’s not about giving marketing support to ANY partner; it’s about giving it to the RIGHT partner.
MarketStar’s solution is constructed to seek out top partners and “recruit” them into the right types of marketing enablement programs. Our Partner Marketing Solution provides the direction, enablement and support necessary to get the most out of automated or highly customized marketing initiatives. Partners are provided with 1:1 consultation, digital and telephone communications, programmatic support and ongoing access to pipeline development resources, not just blank checks.
You set programmatic goals and create funding thresholds, and we work together to set campaign parameters for marketing campaigns. MarketStar’s white-glove solution develops insightful strategies, coordinates campaigns, enables partners with purposeful content, and makes recommendations on long-term program evolution.
