Collaboration leads to sales
Partnerships impact your bottom line. But partnerships people don't use the same language as sales. Language is a true expression of who we are, and you need to be able to speak the same language as your partners if you want to increase your sales.
You need to enter partner conversations with data, but you also need to understand the lingo of your partners. Understand how your partnerships will impact the individuals on the ground at your partner's organization.
Engage with your partners at their watering holes. For example, let them know how partnerships can have a positive impact on the sales team, making cold calling easier.
To make partnerships work, provide solutions to your partner's problems, but do it through the lens of partnerships.
