APMdigest Silver Sponsorship Deliverables

Getting Started

Welcome to APMdigest! We are glad to have you onboard as a Silver Sponsor.

Your sponsorship includes posting ads and assets such as webinars, white papers and free tools/trials. However, your sponsorship officially starts when you send us your ad. You can send other assets prior to sending the ad, if you like, but they will not be posted until we receive your ad.

The ad is the only asset we need to start your sponsorship on day one. You can send other assets on the first day as well, if you are ready, but you can also send assets at any time throughout the duration of the sponsorship. Any time your company produces a new webinar, white paper, report, ebook, video, or free tool/trial, you should send them to APMdigest to be posted.
