The Brand Matchmaker series 

The collaboration marketing experts from Collabosaurus and creative strategists from Idiello have partnered up for a series of resources to help brands pull off successful collabs that are win-win.

Here’s why collaboration marketing is the bee’s knees.

Gin and tonic. Netflix and chill. Ben and Jerry. Some things are even better when they’re together. And when two like-minded businesses partner up and join forces? Well that’s when the real magic happens.

Collaborations are 25 times less expensive than digital advertising, and businesses who band together, cross-promote and collaborate can double their reach and halve their costs. Talk about the dream combination for small businesses. 

Clever and purpose-driven collaboration marketing paves the way for greater awareness, engagement, credibility and a clearer positioning of your brand. This series of resources - which are all collaborations in themselves - will teach you how to create a dream collab for your own brand.


Meet the collaboration marketing dream team.
