Recognize your Brand Partners


While some retailers are losing out on ways to join forces with Amazon, they are still missing a huge opportunity to align their marketing priorities with their top brands. According to our survey, more than 60 percent of small and local business owners are failing to use brand marketing assets – and it isn’t just this survey pool.


Large U.S. brands allocate $36 billion in co-op marketing funds to be spent through their local partners for marketing initiatives, yet about $14 billion of it goes unredeemed at the end of the year.


Three steps for harmonizing your marketing with your brands:

  • Reach out to your brands to inquire about available creative assets, promotions and eligibility for co-op funds.
  • Discuss your sales goals. Find ways to team up to drive new customers through your doors.
  • Work together to build out a shared marketing plan with specifics on how and when to apply for or claim co-op funds.
