Opportunity Finder gets a Promotion - Introducing the BNZSA Promoter Programme

The latest service offering available from BNZSA’s Opportunity Finder end-to-end revenue framework.

Against a backdrop of recession, inflation, and staffing cutbacks, if a company could approach you and offer you the chance to continue to grow your business well above the market average and in double digits, what would you say?

“Impossible?” “Very unlikely?” Or “Are you finally giving me those Glengarry[1] leads?”

Well, it’s not just closers who get the coffee under the BNZSA Promoter Programme, (BPP) it’s the entire company, because BNZSA Promoters mean business!

What is the BNZSA Promoter Programme?

The B2B equivalent of Internet ‘influencers,’ BNZSA’s Promoter Programme is a service that fits under the umbrella of its Opportunity Finder Framework and run by highly trained specialists who work with end users and channel partners to inform them and educate them about a client’s hardware, software, platform and service solutions.

These promoters are multilingual and can serve multiple markets, so are ideally placed to help companies that are looking to land and expand in new territories quickly and effectively without the need to hire full-time staff or set up offices.

They also work with our client’s channel partners. The strategy here is to drive scale of adoption and proactive selling through training and co-selling. The programme is closely aligned with BNZSA’s traditional marketing campaigns.

Reach parts of the market other programmes cannot reach!

The differentiator for the BPP is that it’s designed to reach the parts of the market not covered by the client’s direct or BNZSA’s direct sales teams and is agile like a special forces unit that can react to quickly to changing field conditions, like tactical moves by competitors.

BNZSA's diverse, international team with 26 languages spoken natively supports global coverage depending on the clients needs and priorities. We currently offer this service across EMEA, US and APAC markets, with coverage in the Middle East, Africa, and countries such as Canada, Japan, Australia, and India.

The goal of the programme is to increase unit volume sales of a product or increase adoption of client services directly and indirectly. The primary focus of the BPP is on the mid-market and public sector, areas which are not covered by the enterprise sales teams.

The target audience for BPPs are: ITDMs, Value Added Resellers (VAR), Systems Integrators (SI), Managed Service Providers (MSP), Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Local OEM’s.
