Creating a Co-op Program Tool to Sell More Tools

Developing a co-op program that benefits your suppliers, your sales efforts and your brand.


Increasing brand awareness and sales while budgets remain flat... that's a tough problem. But if you have a business model like Matco Tools, there's a solution. The Matco Tools product offering is comprised of approximately 50% outside buys.


An opportunity existed to generate increased marketing dollars through a co-op program targeting suppliers. ATA developed a turnkey tiered solution that allowed the supplier to pick and choose the programs in which they wanted to participate, based on dollar commitment. And because the method of co-op sign-up was web-based, suppliers were able to compete in real time for available tiers in the co-op program.


The elements of the turnkey quarterly program included digital, print and video. We created an 8-page magazine that promoted Matco products, MotorSports and timely industry articles. In addition, we developed Torque TV - which became the place where technicians could turn to learn more "how-to" about the products. The self-funded program contributed over $10,000,000 annually in incremental revenue and kept Matco Tools first to market with new products.


While our methods have changed over time, our approach has always been consistent - we deliver targeted and measurable integrated marketing programs that drive outpacing revenue growth. Now more than ever, the ability to drive measurable results is mission-critical for today’s marketing organizations. It not only facilitates post-program ROI analysis, but it also drives resource allocation (and re-allocation) decisions during programs to get the most from your marketing spend.
