When we released Guide to a Successful Dealer Incentive Program earlier in the month, we had no idea that it would make the splash it did. With the help of Jon Lieb at Thirty Ink Media & Marketing, coverage of our e-book release appeared in Marketing Dive, Construction Dive, and HR Dive. Its reception has been overwhelmingly positive.
Alex Palmer, managing editor at the Northstar Travel Group, wrote up a favorable feature on the e-book, which appeared last last week in Incentive Magazine. Palmer writes:
“Over seven chapters, the ‘2019 Guide to a Successful Dealer Incentive Program’ lays out the main priorities for [a program that motivates dealers and channel sales people], including how to set one up, select the right rewards and measure its return on investment.”
As someone with a pulse on B2B and channel sales, Alex Palmer sums up the problems facing businesses today: “For many organizations, understanding the most effective way to use rewards and recognition to motivate dealers and channel salespeople remains a bit of a mystery.”
