Social PartneringTM is a system to increase your Social Currency, business and referrals through inclusion and conscious expansion of your best strategic partners. Find others who want or have the clientele that fits your perfect client profile, and magic will begin to happen!
I am offering you suggestions each week here in the Tips to help you identify some perfect partners to have the win/win/win: your clients and prospects win by getting valuable services / your new partners win getting new business/ and you win by expanding your social currency!
Social PartneringTM Idea of the Week: Your Local Oil Change Shop: Just think of how many people go each day to get their oil changed! Who's the best in your town? Bet they'd like more business! Meet the owner and tell them you want to send them customers and you want to help them build their business.
Suggest: They give you a certificate for a free Spring Check of a car's air conditioning system.
Then... you get viral with their offer: distribute to your sphere in you monthly newsletter, offer in your blog, Twitter, share website links, put them on your resources page, become the mayor on Foursquare. What are you waiting for?
