Attract your ideal partners

Partners have a lot of vendor options. You need very good reasons for them to build their businesses with you. I can help you find, engage and maximize the performance of your key partners.

How do you get partners to prefer working with you?

The short answer is, offer them something they just can’t get anywhere else. That could be the quality of your relationship, the sales support you provide, the access to senior executives you offer, the value of the events you run and so on.

But whatever options you choose, you need to go all-in to generate lasting loyalty.

The more closely you work with your best partners, the more likely it is you will accelerate growth for you and them.

Work with them, not through them.

  • Get specific and selective about who you want to work with.

  • Treat partners as extensions of your business, not just an additional channel to market.

  • Give partners time to prove their commitment but be ruthless about disengaging.

  • Offer content, collaboration and support that they can’t get anywhere else.

  • Provide a clear development path that rewards performance and loyalty.
