How to Collaborate with Dave Plunkett
Dave Plunkett is the best person we know who can advise how to collaborate. After all, he is the Collaboration Junkie! Dave said it was pretty fitting that he was on the podcast as a result of a referral. That was from a previous guest, Stuart McDonagh – Episode 311.
Tell us about Collaboration Junkie
Dave helps brands use their credibility to create partnerships. The outcome of doing this helps them grow their business. Digging into his work, Dave unearths the real value of partnering. Moreover, there are certain things most people forget when it comes to partnering.
- Once someone is signed as a partner, how do you help them do what you want them to do?
- What service do you deliver to them, not just their clients?
What is it about the journey that got you to where you are now?
Dave realised he was passionate about partnerships. He had lived and breathed partnerships and collaboration for years. You might be intrigued to learn, that Dave tested “Junkie” with a few people, and they confirmed that it was a good fit for his personality. So, we now have a pretty unique partnerships expert called the Collaboration Junkie!
Examples of What a Partnership is?
Kevin wanted Dave to explain what exactly a partnership is. Dave ends up this clip citing this very podcast. Two people are collaborating on a podcast that is greater than the sum of its parts. Well, he’s not wrong.
Dave went on to say, that sometimes by being busy, we get lazy. So, if something isn’t obvious, the idea is not actioned.
Instead, Dave advises you to take time out to see where you and your business can add value. And, at the same time, who out there can add value to you.
What do you do?
Well, it’s all about consultancy. Dave provides that consultancy around his DANCE methodology.
DISCOVERY – be crystal clear about why you want to partner. So, if you are partnering to produce leads, be sure you know who your market is, and who your ideal partner is.
We loved the fact that Dave has a REAL WHY.
That is the reason why that person wants to partner with you. In the following clip, Dave explains the real why.
Tune into this week’s podcast to listen to the rest of the DANCE lessons. It’s well worth listening to.
Quick giveaway. A is for assembly.
