Killer Content Awards

Category: Channel Partner Marketing

The Syllabus:

Pure Storage and World Wide Technology (WWT) wanted to expand channel marketing opportunities to accelerate growth within white space financial services accounts. However, the companies had separate financial services content… and none were created for joint partnership outreach and sales enablement. With growth objectives of generating awareness and demand within 26 white space financial services accounts, the companies turned to Agent3 for help.

Lesson Plan:

The content included an internal, “positioning rationale” document that structured arguments and ideas shared by the team and drew on wider research. This document served as a baseline draft for materials going forward, such as a bite-sized, sales-specific “battlecard” PDF, and informed campaign themes and headings to discuss current and future campaigns and guide creative efforts.

To generate campaign awareness, the companies created an educational blog with joint messaging for WWT and Pure Storage hosted on WWT’s website. Additionally, they created an E-book with joint messages that lived ungated on WWT’s website along with a partnership brochure. Finally, joint case studies are being created in the future for demand generation and will be promoted jointly.
