The Successful Mistake has taken me on a mazy adventure, and although it’s taught me huge amounts on many levels, it’s the people and relationships I hold most dear. Having interviewed 160+ inspiring entrepreneurs, I’ve met some great minds, but it isn’t just the people who appear in the book, rather the brands and tools I’ve uncovered along the way.
I’ve had to push myself and work smarter and more effective. I’ve uncovered brands like Contactually who help me achieve a more proactive day, and without such tools I wouldn’t be where I am today – and this is why I’m stoked to have a company like Contactually on board.
That’s what today is about, as I’m delighted to announce that The Successful Mistake and Contactually have come together to form a mighty partnership, and we happen to have some sweet plans in store for you. Excited… ? Good, you bleeding should be!
THE SUCCESSFUL MISTAKE & CONTACTUALLY
Involving sponsors in The Successful Mistake puts me on edge. I have a background in sports sponsorships, so I’m aware how soulless and fake they can be. I don’t wish to advertise or promote a service or company I don’t love or use, so once I decided to involve a few chapter partners in The Successful Mistake, I insisted I wouldn’t compromise:
- I WILL ONLY INVOLVE BRANDS I USE
- I WILL ONLY PROMOTE BRANDS I SING THE PRAISES OF ALREADY
- I WILL NOT LOOK AT READERS AS CONSUMERS, SO WILL NOT TREAT THEM AS SUCH
This is why The Successful Mistake and Contactually makes sense. I already use Contactually and sing their praises often. They provide a tool that’s helped me achieve 160+ interviews, and one I wish I knew about from the very beginning.
I’ve only approached certain brands for The Successful Mistake Chapter Partnerships, and they’re ones I already love and adore and use. I can’t promise you’ll love them and use them. I cannot promise they’ll help you or your business.
BUT they help me, I promise you that much. I don’t see these as sponsorships, instead meaningful partnerships that will make The Successful Mistake better – for me, for you, for everyone…
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM CONTACTUALLY & THE SUCCESSFUL MISTAKE
At this moment in time we’ve only scratched the surface. Having plotted and planned with folk from Contactually, we have a few tricks up our sleeve for the here-and-now. But this isn’t a one-and-done thing, rather a genuine partnership that will evolve over time.
As we edge closer to the publication of The Successful Mistake, new ideas will flow from us to you. Once the book hits the shelves, we’ll continue to add value and excitement. But for now, this is what you can expect:
- An awesome Purple Coffee Podcast with Zvi (Contactually’s CEO)
- A Guest Post from moi on Contactually.com – where I talk about how to connect with busy entrepreneurs
- A Special Webinar where I show the exact tools I use to connect with busy entrepreneurs (FREE to join)
- An Exclusive Contactually Goodie Pack you can grab from here
- A FREE 30 Day Trial of Contactually – complete with some of the email templates I use each day
- Lots more goodies, freebies, and overall excitement as we edge closer to The Successful Mistake Launch
LET THE FUN BEGIN
I’m so excited to have Contactually involved in The Successful Mistake, and am proud to involve a brand I use and love. This post marks the beginning of something special, not just with Contactually, but seven other brands I adore and respect.
These aren’t the soulless sponsorships you’re used to seeing. They’re genuine partnerships that will transform The Successful Mistake from good-to-great. Welcome to the fun, Contactually. I’m stoked to have you on board.
