Significant spend shouldn’t bring low or uncertain benefits
With the growing importance of non-transactional partners, offering a variety of market development funds (MDF) and other funding and rewards options may be the best way to influence partner behavior. Yet funds often expire unused, or they’re requested at the last minute without a clear spending plan. Complicated, time-consuming funding processes put off partners. Rewards that don’t match a partner’s role and contribution won’t motivate that partner and often remain unclaimed. Consequently, companies have difficulty identifying effective activities and assessing the returns.
