Success Habit #4: Find Time to Network for Improvement
There are many ways that you can improve everything about your business. You might have ideas that you’ve come up with and you’ve started out that way. You’re working on projects that stem from these concepts.
You might be running your business a certain way. But a good way to improve on what you’re doing is by networking. When you network, you grow. Good networking can allow you to listen to another person’s way of doing things.
You can learn by watching other people – by paying attention to how they handled the same steps you’re currently taking. When you network, don’t be afraid to ask questions. That’s how you grow.
Others do things differently in a way that might help simplify a task. Or, you might learn about a new technique that you didn’t know before. Just as others know how to do things differently that can improve your own business, you also have the power to help them, too.
It could be that you have some knowledge that someone else doesn’t have and by sharing it, you help them level up. This kind of networking can build and boost your reputation as a niche leader.
You might be able to network with someone to help them accomplish a task that derailed their progress. You help them get back on track. Making it a habit of helping others in business improves your own journey and can help you reach goals of your own.
For example, you might network and help someone get better content on their site, but in turn, they know more about improving a landing page. Make it at least a weekly habit to network with people.
You can do this by finding groups that are in your niche or are related to your niche or have to do with tasks you’re working on. For example, there are Facebook groups dedicated to digital marketers.
Every niche under the sun has a group or a way to network somewhere. This could be on Facebook or it could be on LinkedIn or elsewhere. There are networking opportunities on Instagram or in Clubhouse, too.
You can also network, ask questions and give help through other means such as with email. You can have group emails within a networking group. Or, you can ask questions or answer them via email as a way of networking for improvement.
There are forums that you can take part in. Or, you can get involved with webinars or even attend in person events. The more that you network, the greater the opportunity you have to improve and grow.
