🤔 What if you had it all wrong?

The best way to get from your network is to give.


Instead of "How can I get value from partners," start with, "How can I create value for partners."


When you’re first to give – even before there’s any solid proof that they will get anything in return – you establish an incredible position.


You deposit an extra chunk of change in the bank of social capital, which will pay dividends for a long time.


You only get one first give! 🎁


Make it count.


Yes, partnerships scale (over the long term)

The best way to scale a business long-term is through foundational trust building, give-often and work with partners that want to collaborate. Over a long period of time with a very clear set of rules, you will have channel integrity that will help you scale. — Alex Whitford


Alex Whitford and Rick van den Bosch talk about long-term strategies to scale partnerships over the long term. Watch here.


We’ve entered the "who" economy

Isaac Morehouse, CMO of Reveal and PartnerHacker, wasn’t always a partnerships aficionado. Before PartnerHacker, he was involved in economics, education, and the career space.


He used the "who" economy to gain national media coverage, a group of raving fans, best-selling books, endless speaking invites, and the investment of some of the best VC investors in the world.


He did it all with:


  • no paid ads


  • almost no MarTech


  • zero salespeople


  • a tiny team


  • insane margins (close to 80%)


He’s giving away his secrets for free, today at 1 PM ET.
