Doug Howell To Drive Partnerships & Alliances For DotNetNuke Corporation!


It has been a while since I posted a blog. Time has been a constraint with the 250 things that seem to go on simultaneously in a young company.  But, to be honest, writing frequent blogs doesn't come as naturally to me as it does to many other people. I promise to try harder going forward and communicate more regularly with the community.

In the last 6 to 7 months we hired an engineering team to increase development strength (quantity and quality); completed two product releases for both the Community Edition and Professional Edition; built a sales team; signed lots of customers subscriptions for the Professional Edition; started more concrete marketing efforts (web site relaunch; newsletter communications; better and quicker response to our advertisers and sponsors when they have questions, etc.)...
Doing so many things with a new team has its challenges. We had some hiccups during the process.  Like I have said before, we aren't immune to the hiccups, but as a team we will learn from every hiccup and use it to become better as an organization.
Very recently, when we felt we had sufficient understanding of the market and the purpose/need the Professional Edition serves in the market; we decided to rollout a formal Partner ProgramDoug Howell, Director for Alliances and Channels, will drive this partner program. He likely is already in touch with a number of you. One of the key values we want to adhere to as a corporate is the “abundance mentality” -- we want to be sure we take as many participants in this ecosystem as possible on the commercial journey.  That is the reason we have taken care to ensure the barrier to partner with the corporation is low (it is open to everybody) while at the same time ensuring the partners who put in more efforts get more returns (it is fair in that returns are commensurate with efforts).
We fervently believe DotNetNuke Corporation's long-term potential is in becoming a partner-driven and partner-led commercial entity.  We will figure out together the process and timeframe to get to that point.  Doug's appointment as the lead for partnerships and alliances and the recent launch of the partner program is a step in that direction.
We look forward to building a business ecosystem that is as rich, prosperous and diverse as the community that is DotNetNuke!!!
