Creating a successful MDF program involves dealer input, communication and buy-in up front.
In their simplest form, MDF programs subsidize dealers’ marketing efforts in their respective territories through local advertising and co-branded collateral. The strategic benefit of MDF programs over other forms of advertising stems from the belief that both the company and the dealer can achieve their business goals more efficiently by working together to fulfill customer needs.
