Achieving that higher rate of growth may take investments of time, money, and or effort. Short on capital? Attend local or national conferences with a clear plan for building your network. Or consider partnerships. Engage your top referral relationships. Ask them what you’re doing well and where you can improve. Working with a parallel service for shared referrals is an easy method to expand your customer base. Joint marketing can be helpful to announce your partnership. Joint sales can save customer time. Offer to write a review of your partner or co-write a paper together. All these mutually beneficial tactics are proven to work. And most of them are completely free!
First, be sure you’ve properly vetted all partners. Consider existing partners before taking on any new ones. Also, be sure you’re prepared to clearly communicate your value to a potential partner. Not having a clear, concise market story can end a possible partnership discussion quickly. See Part 4 of this series for more info.
Some levels of growth may require financial investment. Consider technologies that can help boost the audience for your service. A review of your website by an expert may be an important first step. SEO investments can drive viewership to your site, but consider this only after you’ve made improvements to your web presence. Then keep track of which investments yield your highest returns and reinvest accordingly.
