Partnerships [Step 6 of 7]

This is the 6th in the series. see step 1 , step 2 , step 3 , step 4 and step 5 .

After sending my second email in this series about outsourcing, I have gotten some requests to write a more comprehensive list of online business activities that can be outsourced and where to outsource them.

I’ll finish and publish it after this email series is completed.

Now onto the next IMPORTANT tip for 2016.

First , some stories.

Story 1

Some years ago, 2 guys in the university came together, pulled their resources together and started a small company. They struggled for a while, working from their garage without any headway.

No one saw the value of their company. Even giant companies like Yahoo then didn’t see the value of their service.

That company is now one of the biggest companies in the world. The 2 guys who started it are now billionaires.

That company is Google.

Story 2

In 1970, 2 guys on summer jobs became friends. One was a technical person and was working on a computer, the other saw the potential to sell it.

Together they formed a company that has stood the test of time.  It is now one of the most valuable companies in America.

They are both Billionaires. These 2 guys are Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.

You might say, these are all BIG companies, so this has nothing to do with me or an online business.

Well, you are wrong.

You see, these guys were small companies when they started. They only got BIG because of growth.

Truth is, there are so many other businesses in the world that have succeeded because they partnered with others.

Usually, one partner has something the other does not. One has a particular strength, the other  has another strength. Together they form a STRONG team.

Sometimes, one can develop the product or service; the other will market and sell it.

This works for small and big businesses. It will work for you.

You can start small.

I repeat, you don’t have to do everything yourself. You don’t have to know everything. You don’t have to try to do everything. You can just partner with someone that has something you don’t or knows something you don’t.

That’s what people have JV partners. That’s why people recruit affiliates for a product launch. These are many other forms of partnerships.

It can be as simple as looking for another guy who has traffic or a list. It could be partnering up with a web or software developer.

So just look at what you need in your business then reach out to people who have it.

I have talked about various parts of what makes a business successful.  You can partner with people who have what you don’t have. Or know what you don’t or know.

For example, you can partner with a traffic expert, a copywriter or a product creator.

But remember not everyone will agree to partner with you. It’s life. Some people won’t see the benefit.

In fact, I just got off the phone with a guy I wanted to partner with. He has a high traffic blog and I have a great offer.  He said NO.

That’s cool. I am off to talk to the next guy.

Whatever the case, you’ll have some people will say n. some will say yes. And a few “yeses” is all you need.

By the way, I partnered with a software developer last year and in a few months, we’ll release a new software into the market. J

Details coming soon.

So the bottom line is this.

  1. Stop thinking you have to know or do everything by yourself in your business.
  2. If you can’t outsource it, because you can’t afford, look for a partner.

If you take this simple BUT powerful advice, 2016 will be a great year for you.

Have a great day
