The transition to the Cloud has severely impacted partner profitability, so long reimbursement periods are not an option for SMB partners, and it’s more important than ever to cater to partners. - Claudio Ayub, VP Channel Strategy
Little Rock, Arkansas (PRWEB) June 17, 2015
Perks l Channel, experienced provider of channel incentive programs that drive business performance, released a new eBook this month titled:It’s Time to Flip the Channel: Why Traditional MDF is Failing. This resource highlights the evolving channel partner incentives landscape and the rising importance of incentive and loyalty marketers in the journey toward increased channel partner engagement and ROI. As more thoroughly outlined in the eBook, the channel is now in transition- embracing everything cloud as the pace of change from disruptive technologies increases. Given this new trend, traditional notions of a channel ecosystem need to be redefined.
Claudio Ayub, Perks Chief Channel Strategist emphasizes how transformative times require transformative change:
“The term slippery slope comes to mind when hearing about companies who attempt to fund partner marketing with traditional MDF/Co-Op approaches and tools. The transition to the Cloud has severely impacted partner profitability, so long reimbursement periods are not an option for SMB partners, and it’s more important than ever to cater to partners while still keeping the end goal in mind. Ultimately, the focus should always be on business success and ROI.”
As third platform technologies drive end-customer buying behaviors, partners should be empowered with a fresh new approach to partner-led marketing, or risk becoming irrelevant. Perks' new resource aims to provide pointers for your company to create the most efficient, effective, and engaging channel incentive program possible via the use of smart channel marketing packages available exclusively at Perks.
The eBook is now available for download at on the Perks Resource Center page. Click to download here.
