Since the very first day we launched Campaign Monitor, our focus has been on building the best email marketing tool out there for creative people – from a freelancer sending for a couple of clients to large agencies managing hundreds of them. Today I’m excited to announce a new program built exclusively for all the creative agencies using Campaign Monitor.
The Agency Partner program
We talk to a lot of creative professionals using Campaign Monitor for their clients, and in those conversations there were two pain points that seemed to come up the most. The first was that it was frustrating when we’d release new features and their clients would find out about them before they did. The second was that it felt unfair we were offering them the same rates their clients could get by signing up and using Campaign Monitor directly.
That all changes today, with the release of our brand new Agency Partner program, built exclusively for creative professionals using Campaign Monitor for themselves and their clients. Once approved, you’ll get an instant 10% discount on all our prices, plus access to early announcements of new features before they are released to the public.
In the past we’ve been hesitant to share any kind of product roadmap with customers. There are a lot of reasons for this – dates slip, features can change at the last minute. At the same time, it can be frustrating when a client asks about a big new feature in their account that you haven’t even heard of.
As part of the Agency Partner program, we’ll now be providing advance notice about any significant updates or new features before they are released and shared with the public. In some cases this might be weeks before, and in other cases days before, but we’ll be doing our best to try and give as much notice as possible when we can.
How the discount works
We’ve been very careful to give you complete control over how the discount should be handled once you’re accepted into the program. Depending on the billing settings you have in place for each client, you decide how the discount should be handled.
Here’s an example of what you’d see the first time you logged into your account if you have clients paying for their own campaigns at our base rates:
No matter how your account is set up, you choose the approach that suits you best. You can pass the discount on to your clients, or automatically earn a profit. Either way, you win.
