4 Ways To Make The Most Of Business-To-Business Teamwork

Starting a new business can be a lonely road on which to travel. I’m not just talking about being lonely in an individual sense. Sure, you might feel like it’s a one-woman show due to the long hours an focus, but your business, itself, can also get isolated. That’s why it’s important to make the most of business-to-business teamwork. 

Some entrepreneurs only view other companies as their competition. And, yes, there are always going to be other companies that offer similar products and services as yours. That doesn’t mean that alienating them will serve you in any way. Teaming up with like-minded entrepreneurs can benefit everyone involved financially and can actually strengthen visibility and credibility. Let’s talk about a few select ways to successfully team up with other companies.

Make The Most Of Business-To-Business Teamwork #1: Collaborations

Working together with other companies on projects, events, and marketing is a beneficial tool for small businesses. Sharing team members, cost, and marketing tools on business ventures helps everyone manage time and money well and often has extraordinary results. It can bring visibility where there was none and even help your present customer base to feel even more confident in your abilities. This is especially true if you can collaborate with a larger, more established company.

Make The Most Of Business-To-Business Teamwork #2: Investments

Some larger companies could be your ticket to boosting your net worth. Investing a portion of your profits is a wise move, as they could grow considerably more than if you left them in a regular savings account. However, it’s no secret that investing can be risky. If you take a look at a company’s stock, such as VHT ETF, you’ll see that stock prices can rise and fall sharply. Create a plan with a broker or consultant to help minimize risk and financial loss. There are also other ways to “invest” in a business than with cash. Consider investing time or other resources to help build a network of reliable connections in the business world. Additionally, your business might be a prime opportunity for others to invest in your dreams and goals. 

Make The Most Of Business-To-Business Teamwork #3: Outsourcing

One thing I know that helps a business to be stronger is utilizing the services of others. You can’t be an expert at everything. Outsourcing jobs that you aren’t that good at is a perfect way to save time, money, and headaches. For example, if you find it tricky to fit in enough admin time to get your accounting done, consider searching for a reputable accounting firm. You can basically outsource anything that helps to keep things running smoothly. 

Make The Most Of Business-To-Business Teamwork #4: Headhunting

It’s always good to network with other CEOs and business owners in the same industry as you. This type of partnering may be especially helpful when it comes to hiring new staff. Where some job applicants may not suit their business, they could be the perfect fit for yours. This, of course, is a two-way street. You can always refer your contacts to other companies as it creates a strong trust and business relationship.


About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone
