We’ve had a lot of clients who thought their problems with business growth were unique. It turns out every time that their problems aren’t unique, they just don’t know it — and they don’t know there’s a solution that already exists.
Stop us if this sounds familiar:
In most cases, it doesn’t make sense to hire a new employee. Lots of the solutions you need are temporary work, or else ongoing but only a few hours each month. Hiring an internal employee will cost you tons of money in hours spent training.
And then, what if that employee doesn’t work out? That’s more hours spent trolling through applications again, talking on the phone to applicants again, and then training someone all over again.
Partnering. There’s an entire ecosystem of professional skills and services you can tap into. Partner with the right company to fill in the blanks. This is the secret to business growth in today’s economy.
It’s not necessarily easy to find a company that can do what you need done, especially if you don’t know exactly what it is you need. So it’s pretty essential that you get yourself and your core business team up to speed on what’s what these days. All you need is the essentials so you can have a conversation with an expert. (We have some short videos you can watch to help get started with the digital marketing lingo — CLICK HERE.)
We know partnerships very well — in fact, it’s our business model. We partner with agencies large and small that need our help to fulfill design services, web development, digital marketing services and more. Tasks both small and large. If it’s in our wheelhouse we can take it on.
We have asked the question many times: what is your biggest challenge as a business?
Their answer is quite often “getting more customers.” But the true answer is usually something like “serving my customers better than they expect,” or “my competitors are eating me alive with display ads.”
So, what is your biggest challenge, in reality? Don’t be a solopreneur, and don’t fall into the risky freelancer trap. Partner up with the right team to jump over the hurdles and start achieving the success you’ve been dreaming of.
