It’s not about creating home runs all the time but rather, being consistent in what you do.
In our industry, it is always helpful to build partnerships with our colleagues and our clients.
Why is it helpful, you say?
For one, two heads are better than one. 🙅♂️🙆♀️
It’s an automatic bonus that they will be the instruments to spread the word about you and bring along more new clients.
That is why successful strategic partnerships were born.👩🏾🤝🧑🏿
In my journey, I learned four different steps in building strategic partnerships on the business side:
☑ Find a non-competitive business that has almost the same client profile you do.
☑ Create a special offer that your partner can make to their customers as a big-deal freebie.
☑ Be ready to show all the angles of the advantages of the partnership you have started to them, to you and to both your customers.
☑ Be prepared to show them how and when they will get the monetary benefit out of this.
This type of partnership is one of the best weapons in building your coaching business.🤝
This takes a lot of investment, and I am not just talking about the financial side.
On the other hand, when we talk of client partnerships, we are looking at a shared journey for you and your client.
Your client influences every aspect of your business and is the foundation of your success.
This relationship is not just about putting them first but creating a long-term connection that creates synergies of knowledge and security to both sides.👊
Let me give you 9 tips I learned to build good client relationships:
Get to know how they really work.
Check-in with them frequently. (Follow through)
Always ask for feedback.
Set Expectations and Deliver.
Create Accountability on both sides.
Embrace your Role as the Expert.
Be an Awesome Communicator.
Own your Mistakes and be solution-oriented.
Be Yourself. Don’t just be all business.
At the end of the day, it is all about maintaining a positive reputation with both sides of the fence.
Remember that you cannot grow without colleagues, and you definitely cannot prosper without clients.
On the colleague side, the business will be easier to establish, and costs will be lower.
These partnerships can open you up to different resources and help build up your business.
On the client-side, customer satisfaction is always the key to customer loyalty.
Whenever you have a satisfied client, it is almost always guaranteed that they will be yours for a long time.
Both colleagues and clients are people.🧓👨
When you treat them as such, you instantly make yourself stand out like a red rose on a snowy hill.
Because we have fiercer competition nowadays, we have to get creative to sustain our businesses.
These partnerships you will create will help you maintain the focus you need in making good decisions for the growth of your own business.🙏
So, there is no better day to start these partnerships than now.
It can make a world of difference to you and your business.
