  • Speaking notes:

    Channel partnerships can be productive relationships, with increased revenue and market share for everybody. But research by Sirius Decisions indicates that although most channels partner with six or seven suppliers, they only actively sell for one or two. What are the select few doing that’s engaging their channel partners so effectively?

    MobilePaks is a tool to help companies nurture successful partnerships to boost engagement, education and ultimately sales effectiveness.

    So let’s star with what we typically see today…
  • Speaking notes:

    Partners are often sent to sent a link to a portal, with the expectation that they’ll be able to find everything they need. But studies show engagement averages about 18% and can be as low as 5%. There are a number of reasons for this, but many that you can control and easily improve on with a product like MobilePaks.

    <Go through slide animation>

    These barriers not only deter use, they increase the odds of salespeople creating their own resources, or accidentally using outdated information.
  • Chanin:

    John: Forrester research from a few years ago showed that 70% of all people have already started sales process/conducted research on their own before contacted by sales. Their latest research now bumps that number up to 90%. Customers are more savvy than ever, and have high expectations.

  • Chanin
  • Speaking notes:

    So how can you improve this? The MobilePaks product is an easy plug-in to your partner – with a quick return on partner education efforts and engagement allowing you to

    Tailor: There are typically three critical stages to channel partner enablement: onboarding, intermediate and long-term. Support content and information should ideally be tailored to the specific part of the channel life cycle.

    Push/Pull: Most partner enablement and education today consists of static content. Including an “push/pull” meaning it should be searchable on-demand from any device, as well you should be able to update and “push” alerts or highlight new aids for your channel

    Mobile is key. A whopping 60% of your channel is likely using a mobile device as their primary means to access vendor information – either smartphone or tablet.

    Feedback and Tracking: With MobilePaks you have the ability to get feedback real-time from your channel. We’ll show you in a few minutes how it works, but you can get feedback on user behavior, consumption, knowledge competency and even how they rate helpfulness of your assets. This helps you to know hat the channel needs to drive sales effectiveness.

  • Speaker notes:

    Intro: Cisco originally reached out to us to better support their Channel Marketing Managers. The sheer number of products as well as the technical nature makes channel support challenging.

    Talk through bullets briefly.
  • Speaking notes:
    As you give the demo it’s important to note the emphasize the following to tie to the ROI and final positioning slides:

    Easy user experience – 2 clicks from any device
    On-demand and push/pull and auto recommend if you seek this feature
    Lower the barrier for sellers to access

    When viewing Paks note how the design and how if facilitates engagement and retention (IMPORTANT to do to tie into positioning)
    Emphasize interactivity
    Retetion building format: Short chunks ~ 5 min or less. Studies show that interaction every 45 seconds boosts retention. Asking brain reinforcing questions to boost retention
    Engagement widgets – NOT JUST PASSIVE CONTENT . Studies show 4 out of 5 prefer an interactive Pak with an engagement each page vs. PDF format.

    Tracking and ROI
    Note this by looking at the dashboard only
    Track user behavior by channel, role and/or individual
    Customize widgets to your particular KPIs for your channels

  • Speaker Notes:

    With MobilePaks you can support repeatability in your channel which is critical to reaching your revenue goals. Typically we’ll see this as three types: Education, enablement support and of course customer facing/collateral. Here are a few examples.

    - See more at:
  • Playbooks: information-rich resources, but when they are massive presentations or PDFs—inconvenient to access and difficult to use/find relevant information.
  • Employees will start to look for their own solutions to getting their jobs done while being “mobile first,” which may not be up to snuff for the organization in terms of security standpoint or messaging quality.
    Imagine how impactful it would be if your reps could access it on their mobile devices in their moment of need
  • Speaker notes

    Lastly, as shown from the demo tracking behavior is key to improving sales effectiveness of your channel.

    Your partner execution plan should focus on factors of training and providing the necessary quick job aids and sales resources they need to be successful. Instead of peppering the partner with quarter-end calls to check on pipeline, channel managers should continually track mutual progress (e.g. training programs delivered, partner participation, selling resources the partner committed to, and frequency of deals closed). By doing so, channel marketers can detect if a partner needs to hire or assign additional reps or ensure that training is being optimized.
