Hey guys! I hope everything’s going well in your neck of the woods. It’s surely going swell in mine.
As an Internet marketer, your team is one of your assets. Without them, you’d be forced to do everything on your own. Without them, you’d waste precious time accomplishing routine tasks- time which would have been better spent at leveraging your products. Without a team, you’ll be doing yourself a disservice. You won’t be able to take advantage of the diversity of knowledge that could propel your biz forward. Without a team, you’d have to find solutions to every problem you face on your own.
But let’s face it. Most of the time, the people we get to compose our team will always have a “subordinate mindset.” They will see themselves as our employees. They will always see us as their boss. There’s nothing wrong with this. After all, that’s the reality. However, this boss-subordinate view discourages creative thinking. They will wait for you to tell them what to do and how to do it. Instead of capitalizing on the fresh, unique and better perspectives that they offer, subordinates will simply do what you wish even if it’s detrimental to your business.
Drawing out their opinions begins with you. It’s your responsibility to get them to talk. In order to do that, you’ve got to let them feel that they are part of your team. I’ve said this before, but it’s worth repeating because it’s too damn important to forget: Your team can bring your biz to the next level if you make them feel that they stand to benefit from your success. That’s how to earn their commitment. They’ve got to treat your business as their own. Otherwise, they’ll be content just to earn a salary for a day’s work.
No one, not even the most expert of gurus, has the answer to every problem. There will always be a stone that’s left unturned. That’s why it’s essential to get as many heads as you can to work out a solution. That’s the advantage of parallel processing. By giving out particular chunks of a problem for team members to work on, you’ll most likely find a suitable solution sooner than if you would do it by yourself. Besides, when you engage your team, you stimulate everyone into thinking of creative solutions that would otherwise have been missed if you do it yourself.
Facing a problem? Engage the power of your Internet marketing team and find a solution!
