- Cross Promotion When you form an alliance with another professional in a similar industry, you can work together to promote one another. For example, if you are a roofer and a house painter is running a special, you can promote this on your page. Some of your clients may need painting work done, and may contact your Power Partner. If you run your own promotion several months down the line, your Power Partner can return the favor by telling his commonfig followers about your special.
- Collaboration There are some times when you will need or want to collaborate with a professional in a related industry. As a freelance writer, for example, I have sometimes had to consult and collaborate with a web designer in order to complete a project for a client. When you have a Power Partner in a complementary field, working together is easy: Simply log into your commonfig account to contact her, using the site features to coordinate scheduling and other details.
- Lead Referrals When you have Power Partners that you trust, you’ll feel confident in referring your clients to them. If you are a dentist dealing with a patient with neck problems, for example, you want to have another professional that you trust that you might refer your patient to. If you have a reputable chiropractor as a Power Partner, you can easily set up a referral. Simply use the “refer professional” icon on your Power Partner’s v-card, which looks like an arrow, and send the referral to your client.
- Boosted Credibility Because service seekers and other professionals can see who your Power Partners are, your image and credibility can be raised. If a recently-engaged client is considering hiring you as her wedding florist, she can look at your profile and see that your Power Partners include caterers, a wedding planner and photographers. Because a Power Partnership implies trust, she’ll feel confident knowing that you are well-respected in your field.
