Channel Pricing Strategy

How to design effective channel pricing programs

Channel Pricing Strategy (CPS) workshop provides participants with pricing models, tools and techniques to create desired partner behavior. It examines a wide range of compensation approaches ranging from volume-based to performance/activity-based systems, from up-front discounts to back-end rebates. The workshop discusses tiered channel programs designed to legally differentiate pricing to competing channel partners and provides examples of various successful approaches. It also covers legal and policy aspects of channel compensation including minimum-advertised price and resale price policies.
