WHAT WE DO
Samsung Launch Support Site
Samsung sells smartphones, tablets and accessories through independent sales teams at both carrier stores and retailers (“channel partners”). Each sales team supports many different phones — including Samsung’s competitors. These teams have to be aware of specific launch dates, features, and even accessories, which can vary from carrier to carrier (as well as retailers). Samsung was looking for a resource to train the teams responsible for device sales.
We wanted to equip the independent sales teams with the necessary information they could use to confidently sell Samsung’s smartphones and accessories. We knew this information had to be up-to-date, accessible, and customizable so that sales teams could quickly engage with customers, answer questions, or share documentation.
We compiled and digitized these resources onto an online, single-source platform that all sales teams could access without the worry of a log-in. This newly created hub was called Samsung Launch Support (SamsungLaunchSupport.com) and represented the beginning of Samsung’s sales enablement process.

Monkeytag started by supporting Samsung with printed launch kits, which were used to introduce new devices and excite and inform reps with the ultimate goal of increasing sales to consumers.
Monkeytag took initiative to start working on a simple one-page website that could tie in with the existing printed launch kits. This presented an opportunity to test digital collateral while preventing a significant disruption to the existing strategy.

Email was introduced as a way to keep reps aware of new information on the site, by delivering the latest updates to their inbox.
Within the first year, we had nearly 10,000 subscribers and an open rate of 15.8% (5.19% higher than the industry average).
Carrier PagesInitially, Samsung Launch Support was a one-stop-shop for all, but by the end of 2019, Monkeytag had optimized it to also support carrier-specific sites.
FeedbackA “Contact Us” form was incorporated to allow reps to provide feedback on the site to provide opportunities for continuous improvement.
