A key component to success for manufacturers in the global market is effective channel management. Creating a global channel management strategy begins with an overview of the specific country of interest's existing channel structure. Secondary research is critical for planning but the company must not leave their efforts at that level and just launch into a campaign to recruit resellers.

This is only one strategy. In this paper, global channel management is discussed in detail.
