we make the MDF experience easy with our simple framework
Our MDF management capability extends across a range of vendors. We work with you to select the most appropriate vendor for an initial campaign - then we reach out on your behalf and get the conversation started.
We work with you and our chosen vendor to build a comprehensive campaign proposal, outlining the activity, expected costs and performance. This is based on our prior experience of MDF campaigns.
Sometimes there are a few hoops to be jumped through - we’ll work with the vendor to get the proposal over the line and answer any questions they have. We’ll also work with your finance team to make sure cashflow is planned and managed.
Once we’ve got approval, we’ll get the campaign executed. We know that vendors are keen to see quick results, so our initial campaigns are focused on generating qualified pipeline as fast as possible, through proven methods like telemarketing.
One of the main struggles with MDF for vendors is the lack of performance visibility while campaigns are in market. We provide campaign dashboards and make sure all leads and opportunities are tracked, solving this problem.
report and claim
Our systems are geared to tracking and compiling proof of performance as the campaign is executed, so filing reports and claiming funds is as simple as uploading invoices and documents. We manage this process for you.
improve and repeat
We take the learnings from the campaign, select a vendor and message, and do another round of co-funded demand generation, driving more sales for you while taking full advantage of available MDF.
We know that vendors are committed to driving performance from their MDF spend – this is why we’re committed to delivering a 10x return on investment on the campaigns we run.
