Your Power Partners will be business attorneys, graphic designers, printers, marketing, public relations and branding firms who will introduce you to their clients as the need arises.
The conversations with these Power Partners should indicate your willingness to include them as you become aware of clients that need their services. It is important that you meet with these Power Partners in person the first time, then keep in touch with them weekly through email or phone conversations.
The research for the business is extensive and never ends. It would be best to have the experience of promoting a number of clients to work out the kinks prior to presenting yourself as an expert to your Power Partners or going in front of groups to speak about the results of internet marketing.
