Barnsley Small Business Collaboration

Have you considered business collaboration to grow your company and boost profits? If so, we can help…

Your business should collaborate, not compare results. If there’s something us Yorkshire folk are known for its friendliness. Strike up a conversion with a passerby on your commute and prepare for them to share everything with you, from what they watched last night on the telly to their latest project at work.

There are many opportunities out there to engage with businesses in everyday life and work together to exchange ideas and increase purchasing power. Whether informally or in a controlled environment, seek out collaborative relationships with like-minded individuals who share common goals for success.

Here are just some of the ways your business can take advantage of local business collaborations:

Importance of collaboration in business

You’ve heard it a million times. Your business should specialise in a particular niche to become an authority in your sector. We stress this, and for a good reason. It gives you a target market and a clear focus. You and your market will gain massively from supporting one another, rather than fighting for the same slice of the market. Here’s how:

1) Networking groups. Join or set up local networking groups to support business owners. Share knowledge, community news and new opportunities with fellow founders. The beauty of a local setting? The group members don’t have to be from your industry sector. They can be from all walks of life. You’ll be surprised how useful it can be to share the struggles and successes of running a business. There will be some takeaways that you can apply to apply to your business to ensure you are forever progressing.

2) Industry collaboration.Some of the most common alliances are forged between geographical and industry-specific companies. Ask yourself, “Does this business have a common interest that coincides with my target audience and can I partner with them for a win/win result?”

Companies in the wedding industry tend to form strong industry alliances. At a food tasting event, you’ll notice florists, photographers, wedding planners and coordinators. In this scenario, by opening up to different business owners in your niche, everyone’s a winner.

Geographical alliances can be found in many small towns or cities. Take a coffee shop that attracts local residents and tourists. A fresh bouquet of flowers placed on every table with a strategically placed business card, or photographs of the local area from an artist located just down the street can have a significant impact on brand reputation and sales.

3) Give back to the community. Don’t forget to give back to those who have supported the growth of your business. By pointing more people in the direction of local businesses you will, subconsciously, attract more attention to your business. You will appear as an active member of the community, and a friendly company to work alongside.
