Promoting the DocXtender add-on and getting leads from AppSource
The Marketplace Rewards program offers various marketing benefits to Microsoft partners, and Insight Works took advantage of the press release, social promotion, marketplace blog, and partner success story benefits for most of its solutions. Insight Works recently focused on its DocXtender add-on for Dynamics 365 Business Central. With DocXtender installed, users can drag documents from Windows Explorer, their desktop, Outlook, and other programs onto any Dynamics 365 Business Central page that supports document links. Documents are then associated with specific records within Dynamics 365 Business Central, making them readily accessible.
The case study for DocXtender, published in October, received more than 250 views and detailed the add-on’s merits, which include drag-and-drop efficiency and streamlined management of records.
Social promotions harness Microsoft’s vast social network to raise awareness for partner solutions. Posts on the @msPartner handle on Twitter, such as the tweet in December that promoted the DocXtender case study, reach 197,000 followers. The DocXtender social promotion published in October on the @MSFTDynamics365 handle, which targets Dynamics 365 users, garnered 3,465 impressions.
Insight Works sees its solutions on AppSource being downloaded more than 140 times per month, and the number is growing. This represents a significant source of leads for Insight Works.
