Many more reasons to say ‘Thank You’ for a great year
As 2013 comes to a close (where did the year go?), we look back on a time that saw a lot of transition. You, our partners, were on the front lines helping to lead that transition by bringing your expertise and truly exciting, new technology to the market.
Over the past year, we increased investments to significantly expand benefits for our partners. We hope you took advantage of the programmatic benefits we instituted:
o Rewards for branded system sales: Working collaboratively with our PC OEM partners we delivered sales training and resources to help grow your businesses, and we are rewarding Intel-based system sales through distribution
o Social communities further evolved to help us connect with you and create ongoing dialogue beyond events. If you haven’t already done so, please join us on LinkedIn, Twitter and/or Facebook, to stay connected all the time.
o Intel product and technology content was made readily available and is now actively syndicated by more than 400 ITPs who are leveraging these assets to enable lead generation. In 2014, we will enhance this benefit with social capabilities and more lead gen hooks.
Again, thanks to your efforts and dedication, we have grown our Gold and Platinum member base 50 percent over last year. We remain committed to fortifying your ITP status and providing you with tools to help you succeed. We pledge to deliver:
o The Right Benefits – Rewarding partners across all levels of integration with points as well as valuable resources to help grow their businesses, including sales support, lead generation and co-marketing
o The Right Engagement – Making channel tools and resources available via multiple domains: web, social and mobile
o The Right Content – We’ll help you keep up with the pace of innovation with access to the latest technology, event updates, and research on trends that impact your customers – and your business
Look for Intel to continue to bring you innovative technology along with the rock-solid support you deserve to help you grow with us in 2014 and beyond.
Best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous year ahead!
