Improve partner engagement
You want your channel partners to be productive, of course, but you should look at getting them engaged as a critical precursor to productivity. Indeed, some channel pros apply their incentivization strategy just to the end result (revenue) and ignore the foundational steps of getting their channel partners engaged with them. This leaves their channel partners vulnerable to being “cherry-picked” by competitors. You should monitor and Incentivize partners’ engagement levels in any and all forms they interact with you.
More engaged partners – For many channel professionals, getting – and keeping – their channel partners engaged is the holy grail. Or looked at from the opposite perspective, NOT engaging partners is their bane. Why? Because engaged partners are more knowledgeable partners, which makes them more productive partners. Moreover, engaged partners are more loyal partners – you can count on them for the long term in terms of finding new opportunities and growing revenue.
