History gives us many fine examples of what individuals can accomplish. It also shows us that working together, we can accomplish much more in a much shorter time. Where online marketing is concerned, going solo is a tough proposition. For that reason, Small Biz Incubator has initiated a team-oriented approach to business building. We are currently testing this strategy by jointly promoting various projects.
To date we have generated thousands of unique visitors to our blog site, and attained high rankings on the first page of Google for all of our primary keywords. We have accomplished this through a lot of hard work including content generation, on and offsite SEO, bookmarking and use of Web2.0 properties like Facebook, LinkedIn and Posterous.
Small Biz Incubator has been teaching these strategies to be used in individual business building for some time now. Our small groups, called Affinity Groups, have been primarily used for mutual support and encouragement, and to reinforce the training given through our live webinars. This is the first time we have employed all of our teachings in a group scenario, and are very impressed with the results! The level of participation has never been higher, nor the commitment to each other greater. Speaking of commitment, this seems to be one of the biggest factors that is driving participation! As people commit to one another, their level of participation and performance increases.
Doing business online has always been a challenge, particularly for individuals without a tremendous knowledge of the more technical aspects. By working in small teams (affinity groups), many technical weaknesses can be overcome. We find people are more able to learn from their group leaders and fellow members better, sometimes, than from the principal instructors! We love this, and know this is perfectly normal! Finding someone you can easily relate to is so critical to success in any endeavor. Most successful people attribute much of their accomplishment to their mentors.
One of the most difficult things about starting something is to have the courage and resolve to actually see something through to completion. For a lot of people (about 95% according to the statistics) this is almost impossible to do. Having a mentor, or mentors, is almost a necessity for most people. We are very social, after-all, and having someone you know to encourage you when the going gets tough is the thing many of us can point to as the primary reason we actually stuck our project out to completion.
Small Biz Incubator was founded with this in mind. After many years of struggling on our own, we discovered the Power of More Than One! This is particularly important in today’s online business environment that finds large groups of business owners jointly promoting each others’ endeavors. This creates a business environment that is difficult to penetrate. These groups of knowledgeable entrepreneurs have banned together to dominate the Google rankings, and attract most of the “buyer” traffic to themselves.
