A few years ago, I wrote a blog on Business Collaboration: Embracing a Holistic Approach. For iSeek, the holistic approach through collaboration remains an effective tool for us, our clients and our business partners. Now, we’re broadening the meaning of “collaboration”. In other words, we’re expanding “collaboration” to include business development; a necessity for growing our business.
In her article, 6 Reasons Collaboration Can Help You Grow Your Business, Alyssa Gregory, states that Collaboration is a powerful tool for all small business owners, regardless of the industry you are in or the type of business you have. It is the connections you form with others, and the different ways you collaborate with those people you formed connections with, that will help you grow your business to new levels. If you are not convinced that collaboration is really worth the time and effort, here are five reasons you should care about collaboration in your small business.
1. Collaboration Will Inspire You
2. Collaboration Helps You Grow Your Network
3. Collaboration Is Educational
4. Collaboration Can Help You Save Money
5. Collaboration Solves Problems
6. Collaboration in Action Is Win-Win
So, you’re probably wondering, what are “Collaborators”. I’m glad you asked. For iSeek, our broad definition of “Collaborators” are professionals who are well-networked and/or work with an existing product or line of services whose client-base will find value in the expert management consulting services delivered by iSeek. As an iSeek “Collaborator”, you will partner with us in a non-traditional business development capacity to cultivate new clients and grow our business.
