Business Marketing is necessary to keep your business going.
We all want to do more, but there are only so many hours in a day.
Projects can be easier if you are working as part of a collaborative team. A team of good people working with you can help improve your business exposure to new potential clients, and help you continue to grow your business.
Most of us have developed good working relationships with other small business owners, and even refer business to them when the need seems like a good fit. These associations are sometimes called affiliates, and being introduced and recommended by others can help build and extend your brand.
Kenny Harper of Key Theory, Jen DeVore of Marque by Design, and Manny Torres of Torres Creative have launched a collaborative venture, Rock My Image, a strategic marketing team to work with design and image aware companies.
Rock My Image will develop cohesive and creative marketing campaigns for clients that need strategic planning, message development, creative execution and deployment in all mediums.
You probably can think of some other small businesses that you can collaborate with to benefit the community as a team; a team effort able to accomplish more than an individual small business could?
For example, your business may re-roof homes, and you may collaborate with another small business who installs vinyl siding.
Or your business may be a neighborhood gym, and you collaborate with local small businesses that sell sports shoes, sporting clothes, and healthy, organic food.
There are lots of ways to collaborate and help others and also help your business.
