It’s not a walk in the park either

Partnerships isn’t the same as sales and marketing.

Anyone can learn it by adding just a little nuance to what they already know.

I had a 20min chat with a Marketing Leader at a fast—growing SaaS company.

He was struggling with deciding on the right partnerships path to invest in.

First, we got a little context; he shared about:

1. The company

2. Customers

3. Competitive landscape

4. Other companies working with their customers

After talking through his thought process of the 2 options, a few important questions came up:

1. How do they make money today?

2. How do they incentivize their team?

3. Where do they wish they could do more?

💡 What can you do to add fuel to the engine they already have working?

👆 This is what matters!

They already have an engine built to scale. You don’t need to try and get precious resource time to train people to do something new.

Change is HARD!

Take the "easier" path and figure out what you can add fuel to.

Of course, you will have to make sure that they can add to your growth as well. But that doesn’t matter if you can’t answer how you help them first!
