While the client had strong ties to partners and an existing partner marketing strategy, many partners did not have the digital capabilities to leverage the partnerships. Smaller partners preferred ready-made content and campaigns to be supplied by the vendor. Partners also required assistance with overall partner program development, administration, maintenance,
and execution of campaigns.
