B2B needs help

There’s way too much spam out there.

People are sick of ads, and emails that are generic and don’t have any personality.

We don’t need any more generic B2B stuff out there.

Try using some of the PartnerHacker Principles instead:

  1. Make them famous.
  2. Nobody is interested in you until they know how interested you are in them.
  3. Build radical generosity into your culture.
  4. Surprise people with how much you’re willing to bend over backward for them. Make it a point of pride.
  5. Live-in-market.
  6. The market isn’t a target to be attacked. Instead of targeting it, become a trusted part of it.

Quote of the Day

The choice we all have to make, whether we realize it or not, is are we going to compete in an existing market category for ultimately what will be roughly a quarter of the value, or are we going to design our own new category where we can build the market? – Christopher Lochhead on the PartnerUp Pod

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.
