1. Always be killing your core business. Revenue and customers win. #MandatoryResponse
2. Compile an acquirer list. Who would you be a good fit with (as Barnathan indicates)? Who can you help? Who would help you?
3. Raise your corporate and individual visibility for the companies on your acquirer list. Blog, tweet, attend, stand out, contribute, open source, pontificate, network, etc.
4. Build complementary value props and features for the acquirer list products.
