Media Partnership Program
Guarantee Digital (GD) provides consulting and fulfillment services for local media companies that want their share of the fast growing multi-billion dollar web services industry. GD enables their partners to launch their own locally branded Digital Ad Agency, offering products that virtually every local Merchant needs to compete and leverage the new digital marketplace. The program drives true incremental revenue, as many of the new clients will be former yellow page customers who have never bought an ad from you before. Key for partners is the low startup cost and low overhead; basically the Media Company provides the sales muscle and GD does the rest including providing complete fulfillment after the sale. Finally, positive impact on revenue can be swift, as typical launch cycle can be as short as 6 weeks from contract to market kick off.
