Key Points

  1. In most channel programs you have at most about 20% partner participation. The other 80% of partners are not even active.    
  2. Bring on partners who are working within your niche with vendors who are comparable to you because the education and the enablement are easier.  
  3. If there is a lack of attribution then there is no way to measure ROI. If there is no way to measure ROI because there are no KPIs it is hard to go to your organization to buy software with no data to prove it will be effective.
