PRINCIPLES

Stoic advice

Ut sementem feceris, ita metes. (You reap what you sow).

—Marcus Tullius Cicero

 

This advice began as an agrarian ideal.

It was well understood—you can't hurry the process or cut corners.

If you hurry, your crops won't have time to grow and if you cut corners, you'll hurt the quality of your crop yield.

As a partner pro keep this in mind—focus on cultivating partnerships that are quality, even if it takes a bit of time.

 


TACTICS

How Cloud GTM is transforming legacy partnerships

Roman Kirsanov, founder & CEO of Partner Insight, recently shared his thoughts on why the explosion of SaaS marketplaces has changed everything for partnerships and channels.

He summarized the change in an awesome visual.

Then he outlined 6 key steps for software companies that want to win.

  1. Leadership buy-in
  2. ISV success signup
  3. CXO level owner(s)
  4. Learn the market
  5. Get listings live
  6. Align key teams

He explains, 

Cloud GTM isn't just about getting your products listed; it's about creating a robust system that ties to business objectives and drives growth through cloud marketplace engagement and co-sell.

FROM THE ECOSYSTEM

Major SaaS meltdown?!

He finished the post by sharing a few takeaways:

It’s a scary time in our industry.

The competition is real and they are as hungry as we are.

We can’t sell to everyone - or we’ll sound like everyone else we’re competing with.

More markets is not the answer.

More focus is.

When our team reads that, our first thought is—there's never been a better time to partner up.

Go deep with your partners. Get embedded into specific networks. And win there.

This is a longer test comment to see how this looks if the person decides to ramble a bit. So they're rambling and rambling and then they even lorem ipsum.
