Partner-driven represents highest revenue source for top performing sales reps

Top performers prioritize sources of revenue, not pipeline

Partner referrals are only 10% of pipeline, yet they account for 31% of revenue. For top performers, the sales velocity delta of partnerships — the speed and efficiency at which deals are closed and generating revenue — is higher than other channels, yet out of companies surveyed by Pavilion and Ebsta, only 12% have a partnership program, meaning there’s revenue opportunities left on the table.
