Activate a turnkey team

Building a productive channel is not easy. It is hard to identify the best-suited partners to take your product to the market or define which engagement model will have the most success.

A few years ago, channel programs offered a one-dimensional offering for partners of all shapes and sizes. They provided point-based loyalty programs and tiered partners based on revenue levels. This approach benefited the vendors but made it harder for partners to grow business alongside the channel.

No one plays by these rules anymore. Instead, value-based programs empower partners to dictate the benefits they want to the vendors to reduce the costs of doing business and increase convenience.

Your channel should drive revenue if you have the right mix of partners doing the right things. With Illicium, you activate a turnkey team to design and develop a strategy that fosters long-term success in every corner of your business.

Charting the Maze of Channel Sales

In the dynamic world of Information Technology and Software as a Service (SaaS), businesses often navigate through an essential crossroad: direct sales versus channel partner sales. While direct sales guarantee a streamlined approach with a lucid line of communication to the customer, channel partner sales serve to multiply your market presence and drive revenue by capitalising on third-party resources. However, with the landscape becoming increasingly intricate and competitive, providing partners with a mere fraction of the indirect revenue no longer holds allure. Instead, the key to enduring success is immersing yourself in partner enablement—a process demanding a complex orchestration of resources, substantial investment, and unwavering commitment.

Partner Enablement: A Multi-Faceted Endeavour

To illuminate your channel and metamorphose it into a productive market engagement model, excelling in partner enablement is pivotal. This undertaking is a strategic blend of partner recruitment, comprehensive training programs, channel management, and robust support systems converging to ensure a potent outcome-based onboarding process and a well-defined lead delivery process. It necessitates a nuanced understanding of partner dynamics, sizeable resource allocation, and the deftness to traverse the complexities of channel operations, making it a persistent trial of endurance, strategic vision, and expertise.

Journey into the Australian IT and SaaS Market

Embarking into unfamiliar territories, like the vibrant Australian IT and SaaS market, adds another layer of complexity to the equation. With its English-speaking demographics, robust economy, and soaring digital adoption, the Aussie market is a beacon for overseas vendors. However, its idiosyncrasies and the relentless influx of new vendors competing for market share create a challenging landscape for newcomers.

Overcoming the High Cost and Risk of Overseas Expansion

One of the significant roadblocks an overseas vendor encounters when venturing into the Sydney or Melbourne market is the steep cost associated with locating, onboarding, and managing local partner resources. Attempting this remotely without a granular understanding of the local market dynamics can lead to unforeseen complications and financial pressures. Apart from monetary implications, the risk factor escalates when operating overseas without a firm grasp of the A/NZ market, making it challenging to activate a turnkey team and cultivate a productive channel.

Engaging Local MSPs, VARs, and SIs: Beyond Just Features

Further intensifying the challenge is engaging local Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Value-Added Resellers (VARs), and System Integrators (SIs), which demands more than just providing them with an impressive product suite. These potential partners are driven not just by the technological prowess of your offering but also by their cost of doing business, the simplicity of selling your product, the potential market opportunity, and the strength of your support network. Essentially, they seek value-based programs that provide a viable path to success.

Unlocking Success: Outsourcing Channel

The magic key to overcoming these intricate challenges lies in the strategic decision to outsource channel enablement to an expert provider. This approach offers many benefits, including risk mitigation, cost reduction, access to local expertise, and the chance to ‘test the waters’ before committing significant resources.
