Global Partner Marketing | Partnering with Logic20/20


Global Partner Marketing







At a Glance


When Microsoft set out to optimize marketing and relationship management across a global network of B2B partner companies, they turned to Logic20/20. We partnered with them to build a new digital-first partner service with streamlined processes to improve agility and scale, and we dedicated a team to serve as PMO for the partner marketing program.


The results: faster campaign turnaround times, improved user experiences, more efficient nurturing of partner leads, and accurate predictions of program revenue.

Customer Background

Partner Marketing supports


of Microsoft's commercial customers.

The content, processes, and technologies supporting Microsoft's global partner marketing organization had historically been driven at the local subsidiary level. This approach resulted in inconsistent marketing resources and processes that were difficult for partners to navigate, as well as a siloed ecosystem that was challenging for the enterprise to manage.


Microsoft also wanted to improve service for partners without account managers—to deliver through digital means the same level of personalized service that they would receive from a human.

Solution Overview


Logic20/20 built a centralized content production model—in which the corporate team produced 80 percent of all content and enabled local customization—streamlining publishing processes, and integrating technologies to enhance visibility at the corporate level. By bringing content creation back to corporate, we simplified the customer journey for partners across delivery spaces and geographies.


Microsoft also tasked us with taking over the partner marketing network and managing it as a PMO so that global marketing campaigns could be executed at scale. In addition, we developed operational toolsets and reporting that allowed for even greater agility in content creation and publishing processes.


Our team designed a new content strategy that supports partners with personalized information targeted to their business needs and product sets, creating a dynamic experience that includes enhanced reporting and analytics on content and partner performance. We then expanded beyond the partner website to incorporate email, relationship marketing, social, search, and paid digital media for fully integrated campaign journeys.


All up, these changes enabled Microsoft Partners to go to market quickly, with consistent, easily customizable content, in 118 different countries and over 30 languages.

Artificially intelligent modeling significantly improved sales efficiency, identifying leads up to 6 months in the future.


Our streamlined partner ecosystem enabled access to campaigns and improved go-to-market timelines. With a reduction in wait times and ambiguity, partners could deploy better assets faster.

Digital Transformation

This content portal serves the largest partner network in the world; we ensured the portal was technology agnostic, enabling it to scale and change in response to business and customer needs.

Accelerated Product Development

We transformed disparate content into a single, templatized repository, reducing time to market from 8 weeks to as few as 2 days.


With quick access to organized content—and a 60% reduction in stagnant content—Microsoft partners could sell services easier and faster.




Our team created a new operating model for global partner marketing focused on leveraging automation through digital channels, improving experiences for both partners and consumers, and enabling our partner’s digital transformation to scale.


We also enabled our partner to evolve beyond digital operations issues, adding automation, digital scope, and analytics layers to business processes and creating self-supporting workstreams.

Channel alignment, data-driven insights, and improved processes resulted in a 103% year-over-year increase in qualified leads.

3 Lessons Learned


Global partner marketing - future proof

Lesson 1: Building governance and structure by design supports long-term agility. To support scale and future digital transformation, building governance by design processes in from Day One allows for future agility. By tagging structures, simplifying audits, and understanding the ecosystem, we can future-proof our work and enable faster innovation.

Global partner marketing - focus

Lesson 2: Our partners value our focus on the business problem instead of on the boundaries of current tools. When the business problem is our focal point from the very beginning, we can avoid the risk of getting bogged down in technical details and build the optimal solution for achieving our partner's goals.

Global partner marketing - continuous improvement

Lesson 3: Our commitment to continuous improvement adds value to our partnerships. Our experts are constantly on the lookout for opportunities to improve and enhance. We created an environment of experimentation where new ideas were proposed on a regular basis to challenge both our consultants and our partner’s team.
