Introducing the Event Success Series
Event marketing is high-profile, high-stakes, resource intensive, and has the potential to be highly profitable. Great event marketing is a major success factor for salesforce.com and many of our partners. We’re pleased to introduce the Event Success Series, featuring webinars and success stories from partners who are doing exceptional event marketing work and achieving outstanding results. First up: Xactly, Silverpop, The TAS Group and Selectica!
Partner marketing at salesforce.com is all about elevating and accelerating the growth of entire ecosystem through relentless focus on partner success. Not a bad torch to carry for an elite ecosystem of innovative industry mavericks. Together, we’re paving the path for businesses to transform into customer companies by harnessing the power of the cloud, mobile, local, and social revolutions.
We’ll all rise faster, and lead longer, if we help one another build, sell, market, service, and succeed.
When it comes to marketing, events are an essential success factor for salesforce.com — evidenced by the hundreds of global events we host each year…not to mention the best event in business (can you believe Dreamforce is less than 30 weeks away?). Most of the partners who truly thrive with us also dedicate a lot of time and resources to events. Nearly 500 of you sponsored salesforce.com events in 2012 alone, and as a group we hosted and sponsored thousands of events throughout the year.
It’s no secret that event marketing is high-profile, high-stakes, and — if done right — highly rewarding. That’s why we’re building a Success Series focused on Event Marketing and Sponsorships. Throughout the year, we’ll be spotlighting strategies and success stories with partners who are doing exceptional event marketing, achieving great results, and appreciate the value of sharing knowledge.
This effort is all about YOU! So we encourage you to take advantage of the great insights from your peers,raise your hand to help, and tell us what you think we can improve.
