Alliance Marketing programs follow either of two strategies to help generate demand or help grow partners’ Pega practices:
1. Joint Marketing programs amplify individual impact and help to generate demand for Pega and partners. Marketing engagement, programs, and content are aligned with alliance strategy. Marketing programs are either Pega-led or partner-led.
2. Partner Communications programs accelerate joint results through Pega-led communications and awareness activities for internal partner audiences. The goal is to help partners grow their Pega technology services practices by communicating Pega’s company, product, and industry vertical strategies and differentiators.
The Branding and Marketing Handbook for Pega Partners describes Pega’s logo, messaging, brand and legal requirements, along with guidelines and available choices to gain visibility and go-to-market traction for your Pega technology services practice. To download Pega logos, please click here.
Many joint marketing opportunities are available to augment individual results. Marketing activities can be in conjunction with core Pega-led marketing activities such as PegaWorld and other corporate events or partner-led activities that help fuel partners’ Pega practices. Global partners at the highest tiers may be invited to participate in joint alliance marketing planning. Example joint marketing programs are listed below
All external marketing activity and content created by partners that mentions Pega, Pega solutions, or Pega product capabilities must be pre-approved by Pega. For services partners, this requirement is included in your Master Alliance Agreement.
Please refer to the Brand and Marketing Handbook for Pega Partners, which you may access here.
