Channel Partner Management

Clean Markets is the industry leader in building and managing strong networks of trade allies and association channel partners. Our first-hand knowledge of the business concerns of trade partners enables us to effectively reach and motivate them to participate in utility programs. We manage all trade ally enrollment, communications, promotions and incentives, events, training and renewals for utility programs.

Member associations act as “trusted messengers” to hard-to-reach utility target audiences, and Clean Markets’ success at managing these channel partner relationships is unmatched. Starting with our proprietary database of 2500 stakeholder association contacts, we successfully reach, work with and motivate channel partners to act as utility program messengers and strong program communications outlets.
