YOUR Business Allies Development:
This strategy isn’t complicated. To begin, you should have a well defined Ideal Customer Profile or Customer Avatar. From there, create a list of other businesses owners who also serve YOUR Ideal Customer.
CAUTION: At first make sure they have a different type of service than you. This isn’t for you to compete with one another. It is for you two to complement eachother. Ultimately, comprehensively serving the customer and fulfilling their needs.
When you suggest you’d like to create an alliance, talk about the mutual benefit. Additionally, you need to be prepared to serve up some warm leads soon. This will demonstrate your earnest.
“The true value of networking doesn’t come from how many people we can meet but rather how many people we can introduce to others.” ~Simon Sinek
You don’t need to make this happen all at once. Finding the right business allies is the key. Start small and deliver. Only when the appropriate person appears should you extend and invitation for this type of relationship.
