Channel Partners Are More Like Consumers Than You Think

Friday, May 13, 2016

The arrival of social media has precipitated many changes in the way we consume goods and services and more precisely the way we decide which goods and services (or brands) to consume. This is not only true in the B2C world but has spilled into the B2B world too.

Nicohle Gunn of the Incentive Solutions Group believes that social media is now influencing the brands that B2B consumers utilise. This is put down to the fact that B2B marketers are using the same social media platforms to promote their brands as the B2C organisations. This means that B2B consumers are getting their brand information from the same place and in the same ways as B2C consumers and as such should be treated in the same way.  ...Read More

What A Difference 10 Years Makes

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Author: Moheb Moses
As we pass the 10 year milestone as Channel Dynamics, we couldn’t help but reflect on how our industry has evolved over the last decade. Technology may advance every year (faster in some years than others) but it’s only when we stop and look at it over a period of time that we realise how much our businesses have adapted and grown. Stopping and reflecting also allows us to recall those companies that didn’t adapt and as a result are no longer with us.

To think that a phone in 2004 sported a camera that could barely take a decent photo (the selfie phenomenon was yet to come!) let alone be able to access files, use voice recognition to answer email, surf the web, get the weather or find a location on a map and print it wirelessly! The way our industry operates, the way we do business, and the way we live our lives - it feels like nothing has changed and everything has changed. Join us now as we take a look at the last 10 years and the impact it’s had on our industry and on our lives.

PR ... It Matters!

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

In this article, CRN's Leon Gettler interviews Channel Dynamics' Moheb Moses about the importance of PR (Public Relations). Does it matter, how do you generate it and is there a tangible ROI. And where does Social Media fit in?

For Moheb Moses, managing your own PR requires you to get out as much as you can. As he puts it, public relations is an exercise where the ROI is almost impossible to quantify in terms of dollar figures. But it’s crucial for establishing a level of credibility that allows you to build and develop new customer relationships.

Social Media for Partners: For and Against

Friday, October 19, 2012

The words social media have managed to insinuate themselves into the business vernacular with alacrity. But less rapid has been the ability of businesses to understand what they need to do about it. In this CRN head-to-head, Australian tech industry experts Tony Gattari, from the Achievers Group, and Moheb Moses from Channel Dynamics, offer different opinions on social media’s role in the business world.

For Gattari, former Harvey Norman tech boss, there’s no clear path for success via social media. He says many companies are wise to avoid investing in it altogether for risk of achieving poor ROI. For Moses, co-founder of Channel Dynamics and respected partner consultant, social media offers a world of opportunity for all, especially when considered with its broadest definition, encompassing the evolving forms of blogging, podcasts, wiki, picture sharing and crowdsourcing.
