Marketing Synergy

Let's discuss Marketing Synergy.  Synergy, defined as "a mutually advantageous conjunction or compatibility of distinct business participants or elements (as resources or efforts)."

In the past, synergy involved legally binding arrangements, but today, things are much different. Thanks to the internet, there are many new opportunities for partnerships that all come with their own inherent risks.

So how do you enter into a Marketing Synergy that is stable and lower in risk? Simple, research, research, research... Find a partner with simular interests, look into their past accomplishments, see how active they are in your current speciality, and compare their success with that of your own. Doing your due diligence to match all your skill sets will bring you the most compatibility with your new partner.

And how do you find such a partner? That's simple too, just spend a few minutes online searching using industry specific keywords. Looking for those that have built a strong online reputation will be your best bet.

While a partner isn't the right thing for everyone, it can be a great way to help your business grow and put more profits in your pockets.

So, what's the solution? How do you make sure the message you are trying to convey is being interpreted and not lost in translation? Personally, I often find myself doing things the old way - without technology. I write up a plan, like with a pen and paper, then I verbally run it by friends and family members, sometimes even reaching out to strangers before moving forward with anything. Once my solution is set and solidified, only then will I move forward. I suggest you ask someone to review your project and give their honest feedback too prior to releasing anything to the general public. Communication, the one thing that can make an amazing marking plan or just turn it into a discombobulated effo…
