Strategic partnerships offer numerous benefits for your business, as well as the business(es) you choose to partner with. Together, complementary, non-competitive companies can help each other in ways that neither of them could have likely accomplished on their own. So what are some of the benefits of forming such a strategic partnership? Let’s take a closer look:

You Can Tap Into New Markets

Your partnership aligns you with another brand that has established itself well in that space, and as is often the case, their clout and presence in that market will reflect well on you, giving both of you new advantages in markets that need what you have to offer, but also have a foundation upon which to build a business relationship with you.

You Can Reach New Customers

You Grow Your Brand Awareness

For example, McDonald's only serves Coca-Cola products because of a strategic partnership between the two. No one believes that Coca-Cola is going to go into the fast food franchising business, nor is McDonald's going to come up with a line of icy cold soft drinks any time soon.

This kind of strategic partnership allows both companies to concentrate on what they’re best at, without looking at their strategic partner as a competitor. Both companies gain from the partnership and are able to do more business working together than separately in their own “brand silos”(no matter how well-known or big those silos may be!)

Strategic Partnerships Build Trust in Both Companies

But identifying whether or not a partnership would be beneficial to both companies can be difficult. How do you find complementary products or services that aren’t competitive? How can you be sure the mission statement and philosophy of the business you’re looking to partner with aligns with yours? Finding companies worth forming strategic partnerships with can be a challenge, but these unicorns do exist!
