In military strategy and tactics, a force multiplier is anything that creates synergy between different weapons systems or units. For instance, tanks, infantry, artillery, and engineers are moderately effective if employed alone. But when unified into a combined arms team they become much more powerful. Each is a force multiplier for the others.

You can apply the same logic in business, for instance a sales situation. If you go in cold to a prospect, your chances of succeeding are pretty slim. But if you go in with a peer-to-peer referral, you’ve just upped your chances of making an inroad. Add in informative literature, access to video, web training, testimonials for satisfied clients, purchase financing, and ongoing owner support, and you’ve created a powerful combination that will lift your chances of succeeding to their maximum level.
