A GSI (Global Solutions Integrator) Joint Marketing Programme for a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions
Our client was struggling with a lack of awareness and understanding around its positioning and its DDoS (Distributed Denial Of Service) offering with key GSIs internally. There was a lack of clarity on the joint value proposition, and very little buy-in from partners on existing content.
They were looking to enable partners to drive leads through joint activity, and a 12-month plan, despite the lack of bandwidth and skills within the partner team to run this joint activity.
Here’s how we helped this client make the most of its content
Coterie developed an overall value proposition, plus a dedicated spin per partner. To ensure or client was able to reach its customer at every stage of the journey, we also developed a focused partner framework from which partners can select tactics.
A content audit allowed us to see what was usable and we were able to develop a GTM (Go-To-Market) plan per partner, incorporating existing content. We supported this with internal team briefings per partner, lead process, execution support, and reporting to ensure the campaign delivered results.
As a result of this campaign, our client now has three GSIs onboarded and running ongoing marketing activities. Internal relationships that were developed are still thriving. A full content library is now available to partners for their use, which saves budget and time, and maximises use of materials.
Even better, our client also gained a repeatable framework which, due to its flexibility, can now be applied to any partner.
- A live campaign with each partner – educating and enabling sales and executing via marketing
- Increased understanding of the client’s positioning, its GSI partnership and offering
- A promising number of joint customers and new leads secured per GSI
