LINK Partner Community Spotlight
Partnerships are crucial to the growth of any business. A partnership manifests itself in various forms: collaboration on projects, sharing of technical knowledge and ideas between companies. At LINK, our partnership program creates value for both parties. This blog explores the perks and details of our Partner Community.
How we work with our partners
LINK has worked with partners for many years. We have formalised partnerships in our partner program, LINK Partner Community, to create closer ties and maximise the value for our partners across different industries and countries.
5 benefits of a strategic partnership
1. Access to knowledge
Businesses need a wealth of knowledge, and that knowledge comes in abundance with strategic partnership agreements. This allows you to grow and learn from someone else's perspective. All knowledge will be used to further build your brand, your company's value, and future growth.
2. Competitive advantage
Partnerships increase your knowledge, expertise and available resources to offer a better product and reach a wider customer base. Combined with feedback, cases and success stories can give a company a valuable competitive advantage.
3. Improves company credibility and image
The right partnership will strengthen your company's image. When companies that share the same goals and visions merge, the influence and strength of each organisation can grow dramatically. More value and a stronger business foundation provide better products and deliver higher quality in services ne customers get, which increases the overall brand value.
4. Increases customer base
Through a functional and strategic partnership, your company will grow its customer base. There are many ways in which this can be achieved. It can be through a direct agreement you have with a company that offers products that are complementary to your own.
5. Long-term stability
Partnering up means that your company no longer operates in isolation. You get access to more knowledge, innovation, expertise and resources. A good partnership makes you better, lifts your weaknesses, and improves your strengths. This is all you need to be relevant in the market, while helping your business achieve key goals.
