The program helps resellers from brands/manufacturers to adopt digital marketing. Today, almost 70% of the buyer’s journey takes place online.

This shift is important for local presence, local services, and the best margins.

In 2017, TIE Kinetix and Google combined their 15+ years of digital advertising and through-channel marketing automation experience. The start was marked with the development of unique and groundbreaking technology, specifically for channel organizations, named “Google Ads for the Channel”. This technology is an integral part of TIE Kinetix’s FLOW Partner Automation platform.

The number of participants, that are able to join the Digital Marketing Transformation for the Channel program, is limited.
