In the B2B world, a partner marketing concierge team represents a powerful mix of partner and channel marketing expertise that can empower your partners to revenue more quickly. And if the team has the capabilities to connect your partners to global resources, that can take their demand and sales pipelines to the next level.

But what should you look for in a partner marketing concierge team? It doesn’t have to be complicated! Let’s buckle up and check out what an excellent concierge team can do for your B2B business!

The criteria for partner marketing concierge excellence

First things first—Any good concierge service must be flexible; they should act like a natural extension of your partners’ marketing teams. This flexibility extends to working with the direction your business is going, such as supporting any go-to-market (GTM) strategy set up by your company’s higher management. 

Further, by promoting products and/or services through various distribution channels, concierge teams can help your partners reach target customers and achieve shared business goals. This means that a competent concierge team must be staffed by B2B marketing experts.

This kind of expertise should be able to cover:

  • Onboarding and enabling partners
  • Making the most out of our partners’ PRM and TCMA
  • Providing training to other teams whenever necessary

(All of which is performed by Macro, by the way! Check out what we offer through our partner enablement services.)

To cut to the chase, there are many areas where a global marketing concierge team can help, from joint-campaign strategies and MDF funding utilization to building meaningful relationships with key partners, but let’s break things down by marketing strategies.

5 partner marketing strategies a concierge team will help implement

  1. Building and running a marketing campaign requires a wide range of blended skills, from creativity to analytical expertise and from qualitative and quantitative research to mastering the art of concise, impactful communication. And this is just the groundwork that a great partner marketing team does.
  1. Ensuring a profitable investment in Partner Relationship Management (PRM) platforms. Working with PRM platforms such as ZiftONE or Zinfi, Macro can handle all the implementation processes, from planning and executing multi-channel communication activities to monitoring, adapting and improving user experience and portal navigation.
  1. Safeguarding the partners’ shared goals. Be it brand awareness, driving sales, expanding market reach, or entering new market segments. It’s worth mentioning that business owners and leaders should carefully consider this part of their marketing strategy since getting in-region experts to handle complex operations backed by the latest best practices and stats is paramount.
  1. Enabling audience expansion. A competent concierge team is also able to advise, plan, and implement a broader audience reach, so that your partners can attract new customers and increase brand visibility.
  1. Handling measurement, tracking & planning further steps. Key performance indicators (KPIs) such as leads generated, conversions, website traffic, and ROI are not only monitored to assess the success of the partnership, but they should also serve as a cornerstone to future success.

How to take your partner marketing to the next level

A marketing channel partner’s job is to promote their vendor's products, generate qualified leads, and achieve sustainable growth within the partnership. But to make your business stand out and supercharge your partners’ revenue, you need a bit more than that!  

In our experience, a concierge team—especially a global one—can supercharge all these aspects:

Marketing tools

Mastering marketing automation and CRM technologies is crucial these days. Not only because they don’t come cheap, but also because it’s difficult to align what you need out of yourMarTech stack with your business objectives and strategies.

Deep knowledge and competency

There will be no success without thoroughly understanding the products or services involved and the clients’ needs, challenges and opportunities.

Target audience alignment

One of the most important upholders of any business strategy is identifying the ideal customer segment and tailor the marketing efforts to resonate with their specific needs and pain points.


Various marketing channels—such as email, social media, and websites—come with very specific strategies, techniques, and skills. Crafting omnichannel marketing messages might entail complex workflows. However, bringing all these activities together represent only the groundwork for a solid concierge team.

Building strong relationships

An excellent concierge team will always prioritize your partners’ needs and provide excellent customer service throughout all stages. They seek to understand, constantly gather relevant data, and try to anticipate what might go wrong.In other words, they have the fundamental elements of strong relationships with vendor partners, potential customers, and any other industry professionals.

How big is the partner relationship management (PRM) software industry?

The partner relationship management (PRM) software industry has been experiencing significant growth during the last few years and some of the stats are staggering:

  • In 2023, the PRM market revenue totalled US$ 1,302.7 million and it’s projected to reach US$ 4,676.1 million.
  • PRM software currently represents around 8.5% of sales in the total business process management market
  • Approximately 30% of the market share is held by the top 5 vendors.

These are the main verticals:

  • Retail and franchising
