Channel Event Management
Do you need to drive up visibility with your partners? Or drive your partners to do more local events that actually work? Do your events give you poor or immeasurable results in return? Turn your channel events into profit. Swap stress for streamlining, and business cards for genuine leads.
Sometimes your events prove to be a magnificent, wonderful…waste. They cost vast sums of money, drain your time and resources, and ultimately deliver little more than a bowl of random business cards that are ignored until they go cold (if they were ever hot). Sometimes your event goes smoothly, but not enough hot prospects turn up. Perhaps this is because you left it too late to get a slot in their diary, or because you pushed what you wanted to say, not what they wanted to hear, or maybe because you didn’t target the right audience. Doing events within the channel takes these challenges and multiplies them by the number of partners doing events!
Properly organized channel events can provide a unique and cost-effective opportunity to create a ‘buzz’ among a large target audience in a short space of time. However, making channel events succeed requires long-term planning, and understanding of what works and what doesn’t and expertise in execution. Whether you want to run a road-show to make your brand more visible to your partners OR drive your partners to run thousands of smaller local events across the globe EIMS can help.
EIMS gives you the people, processes and time to ensure your events pay their way. We provide you with interactive tools that manage the process end-to-end, so you can relax in the knowledge things are running smoothly, saving you hours of admin time while working intelligently. It’s this attention to process that allows us to scale the organisation of successful events into the channel.
