In the past year, over 1,200 digital marketing agencies across the US, Canada, UK and Australia have enrolled in our Agency Partner Program. Working with nearly 13,000 small businesses served by our agency partners, we not only help agencies increase client retention, but prove which channels and campaigns drive the most leads for small businesses with limited budgets.
“CallRail is committed to not only providing our agency partners with complete visibility into their digital marketing efforts, but to help their clients do the same,” said Mary Pat Donnellon, chief revenue officer at CallRail.
“Our Agency Partner Program is designed to accelerate growth and increase visibility for digital marketing agencies, and to further establish them as leaders in their profession. In the last year, we have added new co-marketing opportunities, new avenues for agencies to grow their revenue, and new resources for them to offer call tracking, form tracking and conversation intelligence to prospects and clients.”
CallRail’s Agency Partner Program has benefits across the categories of co-marketing, partner enablement, product and community. As agencies bring more clients to CallRail, they will “level up” in the program’s partner tiers. Each tier grants access to additional exclusive benefits, with revenue sharing included for partners on the program’s highest tiers. Joining is easy, and membership is free.
Partnership pays off
Many of us at CallRail come from an agency background, so we know firsthand how difficult of a gig agency marketing can be. Your list of mission-critical demands from clients often feels like it will never end, leaving you with little to no time to market your own services.
For some members, the CallRail Partner Program has relieved a little of that pressure, freeing them to be more consultative with their clients.
“CallRail changes us from a website developer or a PPC shop or any other marketing agency to business consultants sitting down with a client and talking about the business metrics that matter to them,” says Conrad Saam, owner of Mockingbird.
Lauren Etter, VP of client services at LSM Digital Marketing, says her team appreciates the enhanced support. “I love being a part of the partner platform. We’ve really found it helpful to have a resource to reach out to when we come into issues.” According to Nick Paul, Director of Digital Advertising at Nifty Marketing, the program has allowed him to be more selective with prospects. “We’re so indoctrinated with CallRail, we’ve actually turned some clients away... purely because the relationship is best when we can prove the value of what we are doing.”

Sell call tracking more efficiently after joining CallRail’s Agency Partner Program
You may know how important call tracking is, but clients may not share your perspective (yet).

Grow your business with CallRail’s Agency Partner Program
The discipline of digital marketing is changing fast. There’s a lot to keep up with, and way too much noise to cut through. ‘Best practices’ lists pollute our LinkedIn feeds daily, and it’s tough to get further than ankle-deep in any one methodology before the next one comes along, all flashy and over-promising.
But we’re confident that data-driven marketing is here to stay: It’s a tried and true approach, and it won’t be crowded out by the next hand-waving ‘thought leader’ with a tool to peddle. (Or worse, an A/B experiment to run.) When the results you’re getting trace back to the bottom line — and when you know the difference between actionable analytics and vanity metrics — your clients will stick around.
Here are some of the ways our Agency Partner Program can help you collaborate with other marketers and grow your business (Note: The benefits listed below have varying eligibility standards, dependent on an Agency Partner’s tier status in the program):

We designed the CallRail Agency Partner Program with the help of our top agency users, and we’re going to maintain this collaborative approach as we fine-tune the program in the months and years to come. Because at CallRail, we want our agency users to know that we’re more than just another marketing technology service — we’re your partners.
