Optimizing Partner Strategies for Revenue Growth
Microsoft Elevates Go-to-Market Partner Programs, powered by N3
Microsoft has always been a partner-centric organization. In fact, IDC Research estimates that 92% of Microsoft’s revenue is driven through its Partner Channel. To drive utilization and consumption of their Partner ecosystem, Microsoft needed a strategic sales and marketing execution agency who believed in enabling partners with go-to-market (GTM) services and solutions to drive synergy. They chose N3.
N3 has been our chosen agency for the Microsoft GTM Demand Center for the past 4 years providing co-marketing and co-sell services to Microsoft Partners worldwide. N3 has been instrumental in the implementation and execution of our GTM strategy.
With vast experience selling Cloud solutions, N3 not only understood how to generate demand but also the changing dynamics of the partner ecosystem.

End-to-End Partner Development
To ensure tangible revenue growth for Microsoft, N3 designed, developed, and deployed a world-class Go-To-Market Demand Center. The GTM provided readiness, enablement, and demand generation services to Cloud-focused Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) who build their co-dependent solutions on Microsoft Cloud platforms.
Through the program, N3 supported Microsoft’s ISV Partners with facilitated sales and marketing execution services that included:
- Profiling Partners to assess their capabilities and maximize Partner engagement
- Guiding Partners to the right sales and marketing tactics to drive revenue for their offerings
- Building buyer personas and identifying the buyer’s journey for Partners to ensure their messaging delivers value for their prospects
- Providing the Partners with access to expert sales and marketing teams to help them drive real revenue results.
