What if tomorrow morning one of the Top 10 companies in your industry emailed all of their customers about your business?

section icon

Think for just a second about how many day-to-day problems would instantly vanish if a respected industry leader sent you a wave of warm, qualified traffic that easily converts into customers:

  • No more jumping from shiny tactic to shiny tactic, hoping something finally works.

  • No more pouring time and money into Facebook ads that barely break even.

  • No more scrounging for every new lead or customer just so you can maintain the status quo.

Think it can't happen?

I’m about to show you how all kinds of businesses are leaving behind overcomplicated growth strategies and unlocking windfalls of free traffic and customers with a timeless strategy that’s simpler than you might think—partnerships. In fact, it's a strategy so effective that it's enabled our past graduates to generate over $6.23M in revenue since January. Powerful stuff.

So, What Is Partnership Accelerator?

section icon

Meet Partnership Accelerator, the 4-week class where we will find and pitch your ideal partners and get you a guaranteed YES (or your money back).

It’s a high-touch, exclusive program where you can finally get the kind of hands-on guidance, 1:1 feedback, and accountability you need to make a big leap fast.

For 4 weeks…

  • I'll research ideal partners for your business.

  • I'll craft a pitch tailored to them, from you.

  • I'll meet 3x per week to help with all the details.

  • I'll hold you accountable. Do the work & you'll win.

  • I'll coach you 1:1 so the process is repeatable

What Partnership Accelerator Is Not

section icon

Partnership Accelerator is not another online course.

There comes a point for every entrepreneur where it takes more than a collection of one-size-fits-all videos to meet your goals.

That’s why Partnership Accelerator is a LIVE 4-week class that guarantees action, accountability, and a guaranteed outcome for your business. It’s actual results—not just access to more training you probably won’t watch.

We want to work directly with you so you can land your first marketing partnership in 4 weeks or less.

You’re already working your butt off to grow your business. Partnerships are the fuel that will make all that hard work finally turn into measurable growth you can see.

If that sounds exciting to you, then I want to invite you to something unlike anything we’ve ever done before…

If that sounds exciting to you, and you're ready to grow, then I want to invite you to apply for a spot in Partnership Accelerator.

Here's what you'll get during our 4 weeks together:

  • deliverable item icon

    Done-for-you pitch and partner search

    After I've gotten to know your business, our coaching team will identify your first potential partner and give you a detailed brief on the exact type of partnership you should pursue with them. But we won't stop there; we will even draft the initial pitch email you will send them, so you'll be able to generate instant momentum.

  • deliverable item icon

    3 "Get stuff done" sessions per week

    Every week, we'll meet on 3 live calls designed to do one thing: get stuff done. This is where we'll get you started on your action steps for the week, answer questions, and help you work through any challenges you encounter.

  • deliverable item icon

    One project per week

    You'll complete 1 "bite-sized" project that will move you closer to the ultimate goal every week. In addition to the work you accomplish on the group calls, you'll also get a detailed walkthrough doc that shows you how to complete everything step-by-step.

  • deliverable item icon

    Small groups to hold you accountable

    Sitting alone at your computer watching course videos in silence doesn't work. The 50 members of your Partnership Accelerator class will be teamed up in small groups of 10. Your small group will review your work each week and provide feedback and accountability.

  • deliverable item icon

    Private 1:1 fast track coaching call

    At the end of the 4 weeks, you'll have a private 1:1 call with one of our coaches, Bryan Harris and Andy Traub, to make sure you have the systems and confidence you need to continue landing partnerships that grow your business. We'll answer any questions you have and leave you with an action plan for the next 90 days.

  • deliverable item icon

    Capped enrollment for 1:1 attention

    If our goal was to make as much money as possible, we'd send you a series of automated videos like everyone else does. But that's not us - we're interested in real results for our clients and real revenue growth. For this reason, we cap enrollment at 50 seats to give you the individual attention you deserve.

One Heck of a Money-Back Guarantee

guarantee

If you don’t walk away from these 4 weeks with a booked partnership, we’ll give you your money back. When we say you’ll get a “guaranteed yes,” we mean it. We will even find your first potential partner, write your first pitch email and work alongside you the entire time.

Our 100% money-back guarantee: you’ll get your first partnership in 4 weeks or we’ll give you a full refund

When we first came up with the concept for Partnership Accelerator, we asked ourselves one question: “What would we build if we wanted to guarantee student success?”

We didn’t care about selling the most units or creating something that could scale to tens of thousands of people at the same time. If we wanted to do that, we would've just built another online course.

Partnership Accelerator is the anti-course. It’s for people who want to build focused action directly into their schedule. It’s for people who would rather have results than just get access to more training.

There are only 2 possible outcomes if you’re accepted into Partnership Accelerator:

Outcome 1

You succeed. You land your first partnership. You see measurable, impactful growth in your business.

Outcome 2

You haven't landed a partnership by the end of the 4 weeks. We give you a full refund.

Plus, You’ll Get Instant Access to the Partnership Playbook — Every Script, Template, and Strategy We Use to Book and Execute Partnerships

section icon

Think of this as an “advanced syllabus” to what we’ll be helping you implement during Partnership Accelerator. You’ll get:

  • All of our partnership checklists, pitch scripts, and worksheets: Before the Accelerator begins, you’ll get access to the partnership playbook we’re going to coach you through implementing.

  • The Pitch Email Vault: You’ll get access to the “before and after” versions of successful email pitches actual students used to land partnerships. The “before” version is the original pitch they wrote, and the “after” is the revised version we rewrote for them.

  • The Dream Partner Checklist: Our go-to list of places to find the best partnership opportunities for your business.

Did I Mention We Find and Pitch Your First Partner for You?

DFY

Imagine it’s halfway through Week 1 of Partnership Accelerator.

You’ve been making steady progress on your list of dream partners. You check your inbox in the morning and find an email from me containing a hand-groomed list of 3 target partners researched specifically with your business in mind.

Like this one:

email pitch example
This is an example of an actual partner introduction and pitch we sent to one of our students.

In addition to this partner briefing we also write a 100% custom pitch email...

That’s right—we will personally research ideal partners for your business and then write your first pitch email for you at no extra cost.

If you’re willing to show up and do the work to land your first partnership, we will stop at nothing to get your first partnership secured.

Here’s Exactly What You'll Do During Each Week of Partnership Accelerator

deliverables

Partnership Accelerator will run from June 1 - June 26, 2020. Here’s an overview of exactly what you’ll work on, and the deliverables you’ll have at the end of each week.

Week #1 • JUN 1-6

Identifying Your 100 Dream Partners

The first step to landing a high-impact partnership is identifying the 100 potential partners who would be a perfect fit for your business. These are the companies and influencers that have audiences filled with your ideal customers.

Sounds basic? Sure.

Totally overlooked by 90% of people trying to execute partnerships? You better believe it.

But putting in the time to have a well-curated target list makes all the difference between landing a truly impactful partnership and writing a guest post for a blog that never emails it to their audience and sends you zero new customers.

By the end of the Week 1, you’ll have a perfectly targeted list of partners with the potential to realistically send you hundreds or thousands of customers. You’ll learn:

  • The 7 places to look for partners that are already serving your target customers

  • How to quickly identify which potential partners would have the biggest immediate impact on growing your business

  • Key red flags that will help you avoid wasting time on partnerships that won’t move the needle

Week #2 • JUN 8-13

Pitching Your First 3 Partners

Once you’ve identified your target list of 25 dream partners, you’ll nail down the type of partnership that would work best for each of your top 3 targets.

We’ll also show you the tried-and-tested pitch scripts we’ve spent years refining based on our interactions with hundreds of partners.

By the end of the week, you’ll have written and sent bulletproof pitch emails to your top 3 targets (including one we’ll personally write for you). Along the way, you’ll learn:

  • The 3 primary types of partnerships and how to decide which one would work best for your unique business and industry

  • How to seem valuable to partners even when their audience or customer base is 20x bigger than yours

  • How to write a pitch email that isn’t weird or aggressive and gets opened by your future partner

  • How to avoid getting trapped in the dreaded “We’ll think about it” territory so you can quickly advance the conversation once your partner indicates interest

Week #3 • JUN 22-27

Locking in Your Partner’s Promo Plan

Getting someone to agree to a partnership is great, but the key to maximizing the leads and sales it generates is making sure your partner promotes you the right way.

In Week 3, we’ll show you exactly how to negotiate and lock in your partner’s promotion plans without coming off pushy or sabotaging the relationship. You’ll learn:

  • How to create a promotion plan that guarantees your partnership will be a hit—for you and your partner

  • How to run partnerships in a way that doesn’t require affiliate splits or icky reciprocal promotions that make you feel like you’re spamming your audience

  • Exactly what to say so your partner will commit to promoting you in a meaningful way—you will NOT have to settle for a couple of half-hearted tweets or a tiny mention near the bottom of one of their emails

Week #4 • JUN 29-4

Getting Your First “Yes” and Setting Yourself Up for More

Week 4 is all about sealing the deal with your partner and setting yourself up for additional partnerships with them down the road.

We’ll walk you through every step between nailing down the finer points of the promotion and getting a rock-solid commitment from your partner—and then what to do during and after the partnership. You’ll learn:

  • The word-for-word emails you should send your partner throughout the partnership to keep things on track and avoid any mishaps (making the partnership easy for them is the best thing you can do to land additional partnerships)

  • How to “stairstep” your first partnership into bigger and better promotions with the same partner

  • How to turn a one-off partnership into an evergreen acquisition channel that continues sending you leads long after the initial promotion ends (this is how we continue to get leads from partners years after they’re done promoting us)

Each of the 4 weeks of Partnership Accelerator will feature 3 live group coaching calls that follow this structure:

Monday:
Learning

We’ll teach you the core concept of the week and you’ll be able to ask questions.

Wednesday:
Over-the-Shoulder Tutorial

We’ll teach you the core concept of the week and you’ll be able to ask questions.

Friday:
Workshop Together

You’ll have a small group work session where everyone makes progress on the weekly bite-sized project. You’ll be able to ask questions in real-time as you run into any bumps or roadblocks. It’s built-in accountability and action.

Frequently Asked Questions

faq
  1. 1. How much time will I need to have available each week of the program?

    Each week, you’ll need to spend about 5 to 10 hours working on your business. If you’re not serious enough yet to make that modest commitment, Partnership Accelerator won’t be a good fit for you.

  2. 2. What happens if I join but don’t land a partnership?

    One of the unique things about Partnership Accelerator is we guarantee your success. If you put in the work but don’t land a partnership by the end of the 4 weeks, we’ll give you a full refund. You’ll also have the option to credit your $500 tuition toward a 12-month 1:1 coaching program.

    That’s part of the reason why we require that you apply to join Partnership Accelerator. In the extremely rare event that we don’t think your business could grow from partnerships, we’ll be up-front and tell you instead of admitting you to the program.

  3. 3. What if I can’t attend some of the live calls?

    Since our live calls are action-oriented, we do encourage you to attend as many of them as possible. However, we also get that sometimes stuff happens. You’ll have access to recordings of everything, so you’ll be able to revisit the calls and catch up in your own time if you can’t make a few.

  4. 4. What are the program dates?

    Partnership Accelerator lasts for 4 weeks starting June 1, 2020. You’ll have 3 scheduled meetings each week and weekly projects to ensure your progress and keep you on track.

At this point, I’ve spent enough time talking about myself. :)

All you need to know is I’ll be there every week to hold you accountable and help you make progress toward landing your partnership.

But joining me in the Partnership Accelerator will be one of the best entrepreneurs and coaches I've ever worked with - Andy Traub

accelerator event

For over a decade Andy Traub has adjusted to the ever-changing digital landscape by creating a variety of products and services. Now he’s bringing that expertise to Growth Tools. He was podcasting a decade ago, published his own book (and sold over 10K copies), and has been featured on the Dave Ramsey's show and in Forbes Magazine.

He lives outside of Nashville, Tennessee with his wife of 13 years, their three kids, and a fat pug named Zeek.

There has to be a catch, right? Yep, there is.

section icon

Here’s the catch: only 50 students are accepted into each class of Partnership Accelerator.

Small class size allows you to get the level of individual attention, done-for-you service, and hands-on accountability that leads to fast results.

It also means that the sooner you get your application in, the better your chance of being part of this class. So if you want to join the 246 students who already successfully landed at least one partnership in under 4 weeks, click below to apply now.

We hope to work with you soon!
