Want an Efficient Way to Grow Your Company? Form Partnerships.
“No company can go it alone.”
—Yves Doz and Gary Hamel, authors of Alliance Advantage
We cannot grow and explore our potential without our partners. This bold and daring statement from the book Alliance Advantage still rings true to this day, and in honor of that quote, Case In Point has decided to announce their newly formed alliance with sales performance provider Janek Performance Group.
Janek’s sales training solutions will add to Case In Point’s wide range of services to provide an even more comprehensive offering for their clients. Broadening product and service offerings is one of the many advantages of forming strategic partnerships and alliances with other companies.
The Advantages of Forming Strategic Partnerships and Alliances
A Wider Range of Service and Product Offerings
You already have a loyal customer base—whether big or small—that use your products and services on a consistent basis, and while you’re looking to build on the existing services you offer, you might find that there’s a considerable “gap” in the in-house skillset needed to enhance your offerings the way you want.
Building a strategic partnership with another company that could bridge that gap will help give your products the boost it needs, and even a wider selection of services for your customers to choose from. Partnering with a company whose product or service complements yours will surely improve your product lines with little investment.
Different Market, More Customers
When you align yourself with a complementary company, you also gain access to a whole different market and customer base.
You won’t need to advance your distribution network, expand existing departments, or gain additional resources to widen your client base. And not only that, but it’s also a win-win situation for both companies: you get to service a new set of clients, they get to service a new set of clients. You get to create more value for your customers, and they get to create more value for theirs.
The knowledge sharing and exchanging of resources between you and the partner company could help speed up company processes.
You have an additional team of professional marketers, effective managers, or people with a valuable skillset. The kind of resources you now have available wouldn’t have been possible if you had decided to work alone and get a team of people with the technical know-how required to get the work done.
A rich variety of resources, with very minimal investment.
Learning to Manage These Strategic Alliances is Your Key to Faster Company Growth
Better services, more products, additional resources, and more growth, no company can ever go wrong with forming more and more partnerships with companies whose services are compatible with theirs.
You’ll notice your customer base gradually expanding, your clients more satisfied, and your products becoming more valuable to both your existing clients and your new ones.
Manage your relationships with your partners right, and you’ll surely reap the benefits partnerships and alliances can offer.
