Co-op Marketing Programs
Intercorp works closely with their customers to help them market their business. Each year the customer is given a percentage of their spend for use in co-op dollars towards marketing your business and our Strong-Point products. Typical uses of co-op dollars go towards design and printing of Line Cards, Mini-Posters and other promotional items. Also can be used for customer appreciation party’s, give-ways, door prizes, etc.
Intercorp spends $300,000 a year in driving brand awareness through industry publications, websites, tradeshows and other media channels. This brand awareness helps drive leads to our customers. Intercorp also provides it’s customers with counter mats, posters, banners, signage, eye-catching packaging and labeling to increase brand awareness at our customers locations.
Intercorp drives end-user leads to our customers through marketing the Strong-Point brand in end-user publications and on end-user websites. This marketing drives leads to our website to the Find a Distributor page, and also drives phone calls to our branches who in turn refer the end-users to a distributor near them. We also turn the end-user prospect information over to the distributor so that they can follow up on the leads.
As a customer of Intercorp we will put your contact information on our website so that you can be found by any end-user looking for the Strong-Point product near them by simply putting in their zip code, which drives prospective customers to your company.
Architects, Specifiers, and Engineers require technical data to make sure that the fasteners that have been provided on a jobsite meet all of their specs. Without this documentation, fasteners can be rejected from a jobsite. Intercorp provides all documentation and has a 234-page submittal guide with data on everyone single one of our Strong-Point products that is available to our customers. Intercorp also has a submittal request form on their website where requests can be made by the distributor, engineer, or end-user. Average response time to requests through our website is 5 minutes or less.
Intercorp understands that time is money. We also understand that time can affect your customers perception of you. If you make a request for documentation and it days to receive, this can affect your customers perception of you.
