Two of the fundamental features that are important for a co-marketing partnership are human communication and concrete results. People often ponder whether when choosing a partner they should depend on the stats of their website traffic and the size of their email list rather than on waiting to see how the relationship would turn out. That is why the author sets out to interview two experts on this blog to see what they would say about partnerships. When choosing a partner, we think about goal alignment and the provision of mutual value in the relationship. Without these two facts, the partnership would not even work. Some of the terms in the partnership would be exchanging backlinks, creating content together, or reselling products or services. Our growth and that of the partners should follow a similar pattern. The author states that they work with companies at the expansion stage of their businesses at his company and not with start up because the strategy, company size, and services of a start up will constantly shift. As for the parameters that one should look out for, they are traffic volume, backlink metrics, and keyword gap. These are important in the partnership.
