The value of partnerships (we’ve got the stats)

Whether you’re in sales and marketing, or product and success, partnerships impact you and the business.

Check out these stats on the value of partnerships.

1. 75% of world trade flows indirectly (AKA partners).

2. Sales touched by partnerships close at a higher velocity and initial contract size.

3. Millennials are 247% more likely to be influenced by blogs or social networking sites.

- And 84% of them distrust advertising... ie they don’t want to hear it from you.

4. Ecosystem partnership strategies are a defining factor for future-ready companies.

- Ie. companies not tapping into the above will see slower growth and scale.

Will ChatGPT replace partner people?

Will AI take over partnerships? I doubt it. But as AI gets better, it will replace all of our mundane tasks.

While ChatGPT can help do many (most?) things better, you can’t automate trust, connection, and excitement.

The trust you create through human connection is something that won’t be replaced anytime soon. Double down on that.
