There’s no need to feel isolated in your business.
There are hundreds of other people and organizations that want to help you succeed.
It all starts with deepening your relationships.
In the past six months, I’ve built more than a half dozen alliances.
And, I’d like to share with you my Top Three to give you a sense of what is possible when you make the right connections.
Starveups – I’m a strategic partner for Portland’s oldest business incubator. This means that my logo gets seen with all emails that are shared and the executive director and I are starting to brainstorm other opportunities together.
I Take the Lead – I’m a special guest speaker for a local networking company that has a number of different chapters around town. This allows me to share what I love through live presentations to audiences that can benefit immediately, and who may want to use my services to further their business.
The Heart Crew – This is my secret facebook page filled with awesome past and current clients. Just this past week we did a five day Video Challenge together which was AWESOME! Once a month I bring a speaker into the community to talk about their expertise in areas like, SEO, Instagram, Creating Online Course Content, and next month LinkedIn.
Take some time to build alliances that allow you to be seen, remembered, and appreciated. If you don’t know where to start here are my top Three Tips:
Tip 1: Find a larger business than you that can benefit from your area of expertise. Your knowledge is an asset and more valuable than you know.
Tip 2: Public Speak – If this doesn’t come natural think about joining ToastMasters International. If you are a good speaker, other audiences will happily share your products and services.
Tip 3: Bring in the Experience – Think about what your audience needs that you aren’t already offering. Build your own network by brining in Experts that can educate your community.
