In this video… I’m chatting about:
- Why you should collaborate
- Who to collaborate with
Plus… there is a little bonus, my boy is gonna bust some moves for you 😉
Notes from the Video:
Why I should Collaborate?
The new ideas that arise when we collaborate The new business connections Elevating your business to a new level
[Tweet “”A rising tide lifts all boats” – Thanks @NathLussier”]
Who do I collaborate with?
1. Those in my industry
These are people who are in your industry, but not doing what you are doing.
An example of this, was when some peeps in the wedding industry wanted to collaborate – and show the kind of work that they would luurve to get…
So between the photographer, wedding venue, wedding planner, decor specialist/florist, and dress maker…
they created a styled shoot of the work they wanted to do!
Why it really worked for them?
- making connections with people in your industry,
- Getting exposure to each others business connections [as each member spread it on their social media],
- Creating the kind of work that will attract the right client!
2. In a different industry
These are people who are in a different industry to the one you’re in, by reaching a new industry… you’re opening yourself up to a bunch of new clients!
An example of this could be bloggers who get interviewed by someone in a different industry,
or two different companies who work together on a project
When you work with a competitor that is on a similar page to you… similar offering, level, skillset… when each of you has an overflow of work, you can pass the work onto each other… growing all of your businesses at the same time
An example of this was Jasmine Star – who paired up with 4 photographers at a similar level to her, in her first year of business, she contributes that the sharing of a google calendar between the 4 of them, as the main reason that all 4 businesses were busy that year…
When someone was busy / booked, they would refer the job to those closest to them [that they trusted]!
When you work with people of different skillset completely outside of your area! Hook up with someone new, create something different… Just because you can!
I really love the example from the movie “StepUp” where dancers, DJ’s, special effects guys, and a Structural artist came together to create something unique!
