Media Collateral 

Here you can showcase a demo of your offering, a testimonial from a customer or any other multi-media content a prospect will find interesting 

Aggregate Rating 

Your aggregate rating on the Marketplace. Do you spend money on low rated things? Neither do your prospects. Make sure you ask your customers to write you a review. 

Lead Generation 

The “Get Started Now” button is where you want your prospect to click. It brings them to the form that generates a lead from the athenahealth marketplace into your funnel. 

# of Practices Using this Product 


Prospects will use the number of athenahealth customers you’ve partnered with as a proxy for “Product Market Fit”. The more customers you have, the more confidence prospects will have in your offering. Consider the ratio between how many customers you have and how many reviews you have. 

Supporting Documentation 

Case studies with current customers are a great story telling tools that inspire prospects to be successful like the examples in the case study. 


Data sheets can be a helpful way to show case a specific element of your service offering. 


Each partner has the choice of three categories for their listing. These categories help prospects find your service when they are looking to solve a problem.
