Market Strategy

Welcome to Marketnext.org marketnext.org combines the advantages of online marketplaces with the advantages of real networking

Collaborative Marketing, in a nutshell, is the process of sharing resources to increase leads, brand, and influence. Not surprisingly, the Internet has made the option of collaborative marketing easier than ever.

When companies come together with a common audience, or goal, or a common mission or interest, they can band together in any number of ways to create an influence through various platforms.

The Marketnext community is a collaboration dedicated to helping extend the global marketing of Marketnext Members that join as well as providing an essential international business building & open innovation platform.


Collaboration Marketing is the process of aligning your company’s interests, resources, and marketing muscle with other like-minded companies to accomplish much more than you might be able to do on your own.

Basically, the concept allows companies to unite their advertising budgets to cut the cost of a traditional ad by 10x or more (basically, by the number of participants.) The concept isn’t just about just saving money. It also provides collective strength to each participating company’s brand and credibility.

Pulling the top names together dramatically increases the brand recognition, customer value, and customer retention for each.
