The process of building a construction business can be done alone, but it will be significantly easier and faster if you collaborate with other companies and form strategic partnerships. A strategic partnership is designed to allow your company and one or more partners to accomplish more together than you could individually. Here are some suggestions for forging mutually beneficial strategic partnerships and some lead generation tips you can use to help you and your partner grow.
- Partner with companies with products and services that complement your own: Look for partners whose products and services are not identical to your own but that complement what you offer. If you specialize in new construction, for example, you might consider strategic partnerships with electricians, HVAC professionals, or paint and carpet suppliers. They can help direct you to leads that may need the type of construction services you offer while you help them with access to new construction projects and customers.
- Partner with companies that have an existing customer base: A company with an existing customer base that is larger than yours will have access to more leads for your company. This can mean partnering with companies that have been around for a long time or that are highly successful. Offer these companies a partnership of value and they are very likely to want to work with you.
- Partner with companies whose lead generation processes are more effective: One of the most effective lead generation tips available is to partner with a company whose lead generation techniques are more effective than your own. Perhaps such a company will have more business than it can handle, or it may get leads from potential customers who could use your company’s more specialized services. Trade knowledge with this company and learn its best lead generation tips.
