For rookies or small bookies, collaboration can be a powerful boost for their business. Through connections with others you can learn new things and expand your vision to new levels that can make your business more profitable.
When you invite someone to do a collaboration it does not matter if that person comes from a different industry, the most important thing is that you are sure of the value he can add to the process and that the final result will change your perspective or the way you do something.
If you want to try the collaborative process, here are some recommendations:
Choose the Right People
As we mentioned, the most important part of the collaborative process is the people you get involved with, as a rookie bookie you must look for seasoned people within the gambling industry, do a research on the internet, you can find several forums where other pay per head bookies, sub-agents and other wagering-related people gather to exchange knowledge and best practices.
For more experienced bookies, the best is that you look to collaborate with people outside the gambling industry, look for marketing experts, business savvy people or designers that can bring an outside perspective of the business.
You don't have to focus on getting results from the collaborative process straight away, the most enriching part is the process itself, and the main goal you should aim is to inspire and trigger your creativity to find new ways and solutions to your everyday problems.
Boost your Network
As a bookie, the more people you know the better, a collaborative process is a great way to know new people that can be helpful for you in the future, either as a player or as staff for your bookie business. That's why you should be careful with each contact you make, even if they don't result in collaboration you should keep a good relationship with all of them.
Every interaction you make with someone is an opportunity to learn, that's why you should embark yourself in a collaborative process, at least once every year, that way you won't get caught in the routine.
