HERE'S OUR PROCESS

It seems simple enough, but it takes a network of agency partners, a lot of creativity and experience to execute.

First, is your product fit for partnerships?

Our team vets top partnership opportunities for our agency audience. Not every tech partnership looks the same for agencies. The consistencies that make a great partnership opportunity are; product, alignment and the ability to sell services on top of a tool (as opposed to simply using it for internal ops).

'Circles' Discovery

"Circles" start with your software, then we find another technology necessary to form a workflow. The two of you must also sell well with one another. Then, we find the agency able to help us show off this build. Read more on 'Circles'

Content and Custom Course

We quickly publish your directory listing, add you to ranking articles, then record some content showing agencies how to setup, sell and support a service on top of our tech partners’ solution. Most courses are 3-6 classes, 15 minutes per class, and involve someone on your team, our team and an agency from your network or ours (to provide that use case testimonial).

Testimonials

,,
"Since we started with Partnerprograms two months ago, we have found three partners who we are now working closely with on building new service offerings to add more value for our clients."
Matt H.
CEO of Influence Agents
"Alex and I have worked on several projects to date. His deep knowledge of the agency-saas dynamic and his ability to quickly/creatively set things in motion make him invaluable to work with."
"The tone is set from the top, and it's action-oriented. This is a network of "doers." Much is expected, and much is achieved -- with remarkable speed."

Promotions & Enablement

In our promotions program, we will formalize a go-to-market strategy for your partner program AND make personal introductions to agencies who are a fit. You also get training along the way.

Training &
Strategies

We teach you how to; gain cross-departmental alignment, create and find your personas, offer unique incentives, develop partner sales strategies that work, and complete partner enablement examples to copy/follow/use.

Insider knowledge...

What sets us apart is our background as both agency operators and consultants. We bring in top agencies like Hawke Media and MuteSix to help our partners understand how agencies of their caliber like to align with tech partners. Then, we work closely with our community of over 300 agencies to review these offers, get onto tracks, and help our partners gain Program-Market Fit quickly.

Something custom?

We help our clients and the cohort with training and promotions, and are happy to create something custom if we have the bandwidth. Let's grab 30min to discuss your needs!

Do you offer any discounts or customized pricing?

Although we get requests all the time for all sorts of custom and rev-share compensation, we have passed on all of those when they are related to promotions because we have a small team and cannot attempt to account for multiple customized comp relationships. Our programs are priced to be affordable, so we don't have room for discounts or much customization.

What should we expect?

The guarantees are listed in the pricing tables and in the terms, but expect to receive more than what you purchase. If you are considering the Training program, every call and asset we share will be actionable and push your program miles ahead.
And if you choose too be promoted, on top of the initial program blast, each time your product has a new workflow to advertise, or you need too crowd source content for your blog, you can lean on us, our 40 tech partners, and the hundreds of agencies who also participate in co-marketing with us each week to help bring you more partners.

Influence over agency partners - we speak to and market to dozens of agencies a day. 
Agency enablement content - the program includes an actionable course recorded/edited which you can use to train your new agencies.
Knowledge and support - we learn a ton about agency-tech relationships in our process and advise our partners on setup of incentive structure to attract partners.
