Why a Partner Contest?

In July of 2022, Storyblok announced the launch of our $1.5M Partner Fund. This fund enables us to support the growth and success of our Agency Partners and develop co-marketing activities that encompass a best-of-breed, headless architecture as the foundation to allow agencies to create and scale better content experiences for their clients. We distribute the funds to our Partners through multiple initiatives, including a 5K budget that every Storyblok Certified Partner can use to highlight their collaboration with Storyblok in any way they want: events, guerilla marketing, content development, ad campaigns, etc. In Q4 of 2023, we decided to launch our Exclusive Partner Contest, where we encouraged our Certified Partners to submit their most creative co-marketing ideas for the chance to win a co-marketing budget of 10K.

Quote from Thomas Peham, VP of marketing @ Storyblok

  • After we announced the 1.5M partner marketing fund, I was amazed by all the great and creative ideas our partner community brought to us, the conversations it sparked, and the business impact it made. I tremendously enjoyed how we told so many different stories together with our partners in 2022 - be it at events, talks, webinars, or other digital campaigns.

How did our first Partner Contest go?

We are happy to tell you that we had an astounding number of idea submissions and decided to award not one but 15 Partners: 6 with a 10K and 9 with a 7K marketing budget each. Check out the complete list of winners in our blog article. The ideas shared in our first contest were truly creative and included a Jamstack academy, B2B experiential events, mindblowing online campaigns, creative webinars, fun video content, and much more.

One of the winning ideas came from our Agency Partner Made People, a Swedish e‑commerce agency working with top-performing brands, mostly within fashion and lifestyle. On 11/11/22, they organized their 11th birthday party with Storyblok and Centra in Stockholm, Sweden. It was an event where eCommerce industry leaders had an evening of networking, drinks, and dancing. Check out the video from the event:

The Storyblok team had a blast and our very own Thomas Peham, VP of Marketing, spoke to the crowd of about 200 attendees about Storyblok, content management, eCommerce and co-marketing.

Quote from Jonathan Selander, Co-Founder & CTO at Made People AB

  • Strong partnerships built on a shared goal and mutual respect are essential for an agency’s success. Storyblok has, since day one, cared about their partnerships and kept an understanding and interest in our business. The Partner Competition is nothing but a testament to the understanding of and help for the strong ecosystem we’re building together.
