  • What do you Want to Achieve

Knowing what you want to achieve is the first step to any great marketing strategy, but it is more important if you’re going to work with another company on the process. Your partner deserves to know what your aims and objectives for the campaign are, as they can use this information to set their own expectations. And our team needs to know what you’re hoping for to find the right partner for your campaign. We try to match businesses that have similar audiences and objectives but are not competitors. Having as much information as possible can make the entire process much simpler for both of us. 

This doesn’t have to be a polished marketing plan, just a rough idea of what you want and the sort of outcome you’re hoping for and the goals that you want to achieve. You can talk this through with us during your consultation, so we both have an understanding of how this campaign will work with your wider marketing plan and your overall branding. 

  • Find the Right Partner

This is where we can really help you with. Our team are experts in facilitating partnerships and we have hundreds of happy clients who have been thrilled with our work. We take the time to consider our clients and their needs, as well as the sort of resources that they’re planning on pledging to the campaign. Our work is an artform that we excel at, finding your business someone who is consumer relevant and aligned with your brand’s morals and values. These two factors are so important when attempting to grow your audience and your reach without alienating your current customers. 

  • Set out Objectives

Once we’ve found you a great partner and put you in touch with each other, it’s important for you to have a really open conversation about your objectives. Brand partnerships can be incredibly valuable but they can also be a nightmare if there isn’t a level of understanding about what the two of you want. 

Make sure that you agree on the plan for your campaign, being clear on who is responsible for what. We would also advise putting all of this down in writing, especially the plan for budgeting. This is the best way for you to create a fair deal that you both can really benefit from. 

If you’re worried about this, then you can always consult with our team. We would be happy to offer you advice on navigating these sorts of collaborations. 

No matter what you’re hoping for with your brand partnership, you can take a lot of the stress away by consulting our team at Brand Culture. So, if you’re ready to start your next marketing journey, then you should contact our team today. Whatever questions, concerns and reservations you might have, we would be delighted to work with you.
