WE ARE BREAKING DOWN 2 EASY WAYS TO AMPLIFY YOUR COLLABORATION EFFORTS!

 

Find Brands in Alignment

 

We've seen entrepreneurs in the online space approach anyone and everyone with an active online presence. 

While it's great to collaborate with brands or personal brands with a strong audience, that doesn't equal sales for you.

You're collaborating for:

  • Exposure
  • Visibility¬†
  • Leads
  • Sales

Whatever reason it is you want to collaborate, it's usually to build your business and to build your AUDIENCE!

If you want to build your business, you want to leverage other audiences.

That means that more people will have eyes on YOU.

If you just try to connect with people who have large audiences, you'll get many "no's" because what's in it for them?

THE AUDIENCE HAS TO MAKE SENSE!

That is the key.

SIP TIP: create a list of brands or personal brands that have an audience in ALIGNMENT with your audience. The reason for this is that you'll now be getting in front of your target audience organically. You're getting in front of your target audience who may have never discovered you before this collaboration!

The collaboration needs to be beneficial for both parties, so having audiences in alignment eliminates competition and helps you to work together to gain visibility in front of the right people.

 

Approach Potential Collaborators With Ideas

 

People are busy. Business owners are busy.

HERE IS WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DO:

  • FIRST, create a list of personal brands and businesses with similar audience in alignment
  • SECOND, next to their name, write out how you want to collaborate.

WHY?

Because you can then approach them prepared, making it easier than ever to form quality, results-driven collaborations.

The purpose of a collaboration is to get results and if there is something you can do to move it along faster, then do it.

Provide them with:

  • The idea for the collaboration
  • The material
  • Propose dates
  • Share the goal
  • Tell them what's in it for them
  • Help them understand what to customize
  • Ask them how you can make it easier

This will not only improve results, but also:

  • Response time from potential collaborators¬†
  • Increased action
  • Better communication¬†

Have you tried this approach?

Take it as far as you want depending on who you're looking to form a collaboration with.

ANOTHER SIP TIP: Before approaching others to collaborate, evaluate your own audience! You want to go in prepared, so WHAT DO YOU BRING TO THE TABLE? This is where you can add some "umph" to your engagement and audience.
