4 Reasons to Collaborate With Your Agency “Competitors” – The Secret to Winning Big in 2022
We’ve all heard that old adage about how “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” This is true in many instances, but can also be a dangerous proposition for your company. Collaborating with service competitors may seem counterproductive to you, but it actually has its benefits! In this blog post, we will discuss four reasons why collaborating with service competitors might just help your business prosper and grow.
- Collaborating with service competitors can help you retain and maintain excellent client relationships. By working together, you are able to provide a more comprehensive solution for your clients, which is something they will appreciate. Additionally, by collaborating with others in your industry, you are also acknowledging that there is strength (and potential) in numbers. This sends a positive message to your clients and potential clients alike.
- Collaborating with service competitors can help you understand your strengths and weaknesses better. When you partner up with another company, you have the opportunity to learn from them and see what they do well. Conversely, you can also share your own strengths and weaknesses with them so that they can understand how your company operates. This type of information sharing is beneficial for both parties, as it will help you understand what makes your company (and the other) successful.
- Collaborating with service competitors can actually make you more competitive in some cases! While collaborating does not mean that two businesses are merging or becoming one entity under a new brand name, collaborating companies often become better than they were on their own because of this type of partnership. By working together and combining resources/knowledge/staffing needs etc., collaborating companies can create an interesting dynamic within the industry which gives them an edge over their competition.
- Finally, collaborating with service competitors helps to promote positive change throughout your market place by increasing transparency between services offered by similar business types. When all participating agencies meet regularly to discuss ongoing projects, goals, and challenges they are working on, it allows for an open discussion about how the industry works as a whole. This can help to not only improve service quality but also increase innovation in the space.
