About Kokua

 

Our Philosophy

Gary Lam, Salesforce Partner

Many partners focus on generating leads from Salesforce Account Reps as a primary strategy. This is a mistake we don’t make.

The reality is partners need to build awareness and preference in the marketplace before working with Salesforce sales teams. Our approach puts processes in place to drive demand for your products or services.
 

We help Salesforce partners grow and be successful in an increasingly competitive Salesforce partner ecosystem. Our services are intended for partners focused on growing their practice with a systematic process. We start with building a solid, strategic marketing foundation.

“There’s a buying cycle. Before anyone is likely to buy, they’ve got to know who you are. The more aware they are of your name, the more that awareness breeds familiarity. Familiarity builds trust. Trust generates brand preference.”
