Learn Why Automating Your Deal Registration Program Is Imperative to Your Success
Capitalizing on leads is a laborious process. However, for distributors, it’s the bread and butter of what keeps their business afloat—and without a successful deal registration program in place, companies endure the daunting task of market survival.
But for manufacturers, they view their channel partners’ burden of closing leads as an opportunity. That’s because, in order to retain interest within their channel, manufacturers often place a deal registration program to incentivize partners to remain customers via monetary and business priority benefits.
Deal registration incentive programs are extremely attractive to distributors and are an extremely beneficial marketing strategy for manufacturers to deploy. But without a robust, user-friendly and customizable program-process in place, a once successful deal registration program loses its handsome reward to distributors.
The objective of deal registration is built on 5 key characteristics:
1.) Secure communication with a distributor’s desired lead (with a reseller).
2.) Eliminate channel conflict for distributors. Or, exterminate the threat of stealing customers (either from the manufacturer’s in-house sales team or manufacturer’s affiliate channel partners).
3.) Increase profitability for a manufacturer’s channel partner.
4.) Clarify (and identify) a manufacturer’s target demographic or sales funnel.
5.) Generate transparency and longevity within the manufacturer/channel partner relationship.
