A channel partner training programme is a business strategy employed by vendors wanting to support and encourage their channel partners to better and promote their product or service. The programme is designed to generate increased sales, strengthen the relationship between the partner and the vendor, and can be delivered in many different formats to suit a range of training requirements.
Some of the benefits to channel partner training include better communication and a stronger network of people, a lower churn rate of partners due to increased education and satisfaction, higher sales, an easier partner onboarding process, a more protected brand representation, and more opportunity to access and gather feedback from a range of partners.
