“We’re having a big challenge around hiring at the moment. For each position we probably receive 300+ applications. Between reviewing CVs, cover letters, projects, phone interviews, and in-person / video interviews, we probably spend upwards of 40 hours finding each hire. We have started using a recruiter, which has cut the time that we spend to about 10 hours per position, however, we now pay a great deal in fees. Any ideas on how to improve things in this area?" This is today’s listener question that Adam King and his guest Adam Hoeksema from Projection Hub brainstorm and mastermind solutions to on The Virtual Hot Seat section of The B2B Growth Think Tank.

In part 6 of my mini series on Strategic Alliances, I'm going to show you how to avoid the mistakes most make when setting up Strategic Alliances and at the end show you a bunch of examples of how to avoid them.  Because the truth is most potential strategic partnerships are doomed from the start.  I don’t mean to be negative, but it’s true.  Just think how many people you’ve had a “coffee date” with after meeting them at a networking event where you both agree it makes sense to refer business each other's way.  How many referrals and leads came from this? I’m going to guess at not many.  Maybe you got a few, but nowhere near the level of benefit and growth potential that there could have been for both of you.  This happens because neither side took the initiative to make partnering an attractive proposition. One that’s easy to say yes to and has clear benefits and expectations for both parties.  Simply reaching out and asking if they know anyone they could refer you to isn’t going to work very well...  You need to get a little more creative than this if you’re going to get engagement and buy in from any potential partner.  Armed with this knowledge, and the strategic foresight to understand the HUGE upside to partnerships, it’s not the wisest decision to leave things up to chance.  YOU have to be the leader here. The key to getting someone interested in partnering with you, is to present it as an opportunity that gets THEM excited about partnering with you by offering specific ideas for how you can support each other.  These individual ideas eventually combine to form your Strategic Alliance Programme. This Is How You’ll Stand Out  Don’t do what most people who try (and fail) to build a Strategic Alliance Programme by making the other person do the work or try to figure things out. People are too busy for that when they don’t know you.  So come up with ideas that are easy for them to say yes to. And if you want some to start you off, listen to the episode! Because when these partnerships develop, inbound referrals and leads become more consistent and opportunities close faster. When you take a well structured and strategic approach to partnering, you go from being a nice idea your partners “might” get around to helping some day, to an irresistible “Business Growth Partner” they can’t stop raving about.

In part 5 of my mini series on Strategic Alliances, I'm going to show you a simple way to make a list of your perfect Strategic Alliance partners, and give you a few real life examples at the end to help you visualise doing this for yourself. The first step is to define the types of partners you would like to have in your “crew”. You’re going to want to create an initial list of 20-30 non-competing business types. These are your potential partners and referral sources.  Think about the types of non-competing businesses that sell or provide services or products to your ideal clients, either before they need your service, instead of your services or after they have used your services. What do they do? What services do they offer? A Few Examples Let's say you’re a mortgage broker specialising in first time mortgages. It doesn’t make sense to pair up with another mortgage broker, but it makes a lot of sense to look for successful estate agents who might be willing to partner with you to share clients. Any first time buyers that enquire, or they help to have an offer accepted are going to need help with mortgages. But as you’re a mortgage broker who specialises in first time buyers, you’re not going to be a competitor to another broker who specializes in, say, mortgages for self employed contractors. So you could partner with those too, even though you may at first glance consider yourself in competition with each other.  Another example is if you are a Financial Advisor you could look to partner with an Accountant or Divorce Solicitor. They are in a prime position to know when their clients need an advisor, and you are in an ideal position to know when your clients may need their services. Or if you sell to small businesses, then you could develop partnerships with other businesses that work with small business owners. Think banks, accountants, insurance brokers, solicitors, printers, graphic designers, web designers, software companies, IT consultants, leadership trainers, HR trainers, sales trainers…  Hopefully you’re starting to see the size of the opportunity with this!

In part 3 of my mini series on Strategic Alliances, I’m going to show you how Strategic Alliances can boost your client generation and profits very quickly. But first, what I’d like to really encourage you to do from now on, is to really think about the concept of access as an asset.  In the case of Strategic Alliances, you’re getting access to other people's network, audience, client base, knowledge, connections, etc. which in turn becomes an asset for your business.  Access Is Also An Accelerant Access for you, to your partners audience and network, is an accelerant for your business. It speeds up how you get in front of your ideal clients. It cuts the time you need to spend building trust with prospects, as your recommendations and endorsements come with that already implied and built in. Can you see when you get this, how you can attract clients to your business, and potentially earn revenue in a way that you’ve never had before? It Works BOTH Ways The real benefit of Alliances though is that access isn’t just an asset and an accelerant for you, but also an asset and accelerant for others that you can help. Both for your partners, your clients, their clients, their friends, their families. Once you increase your access, you can then use this to provide others access to things they didn’t have before. Which accelerates your reach and exposure to their network, and further increases your access. And so it goes on… The network effect here is exponential, and offers huge benefits to everyone in it.  Mentioned On This Episode Grab Your Free Revenue Multiplier Calculator Connect with Adam on LinkedIn Get My Free Book Conversational Relationship Marketing Get More Free Business Growth Resources on The B2B Growth Think Tank Listener Gift Page

This is the first part of my series on Strategic Alliances, and why they can literally transform your business. Strategic Alliances are so effective because one of the most reliable ways to grow your business is...  To get other people to help grow it for you!  Why would other people want to help you to grow your business you may ask? It’s quite simple really… By helping them grow theirs too! In simple terms, this means creating relationships with specific people and businesses that sell to the same buyers you do, but offer a different solution.  You don’t compete with each other, you complement each other.  Mentioned On This Episode Grab Your Free Revenue Multiplier Calculator Connect with Adam on LinkedIn Get My Free Book Conversational Relationship Marketing Get More Free Business Growth Resources on The B2B Growth Think Tank Listener Gift Page

Have you ever thought about what would happen if you couldn’t go to work for a week, or a month, or even two months?  How would you deal with it? Would things be able to continue without you, or would things grind to a halt?  I've only ever really considered this question as a "thought exercise"... Until it actually happened to me in July when I was taken to hospital by ambulance, spent 5 days there and a further 6 weeks pretty much bedbound on medication that made it very difficult to think, let alone work! So as regular listeners may have noticed a change in the release schedule, this is the first time I've been able to record an update as to the reason why, and exactly what happened.  Plus I give some thoughts about what you can learn from my ordeal, how it's impacted my mindset, my business and how I'm looking at the future with renewed enthusiasm as I continue my recovery!

“My challenge is that as a digital agency, we have a menu of things we can do for clients, and this means that everything we do is customised to each client. This makes both the sales cycle and delivery of services longer and unpredictable. It also means that we are often price compared against other agencies, resource heavy and our margins are tight which makes it a real challenge to scale.

“I’ve developed a SaaS software that helps businesses generate more social proof by automating the way they capture, generate and publish customer success stories / case studies using an AI powered “Virtual Agent” to interview customers. It then creates multiple sales, marketing and content assets that they can use throughout the entire buyer's journey. My challenge is I’m in a bit of a “chicken and egg” situation. I’d like to go to market by licencing the software to marketing agencies and other businesses where “digital marketing” touches some aspect of their service, to help them expand their offerings and grow their revenues, but I don’t yet have enough end user feedback to validate the product will have the demand I expect.  Any thoughts on the direction I should go?"   This is today's listener question that Adam King and his guest Stefan Smulders brainstorm and mastermind solutions to on The Virtual Hot Seat section of The B2B Growth Think Tank.
