When in business do you ever get the opportunity to collaborate?
What do I mean? Well, whatever it is that you do there must always be a way where you can work with someone else to the benefit of both of you!
18 months or so ago now, I teamed up with 5 other people to swap ideas and give energy to other peoples ideas & be given energy for my ideas. These people do not in any way compete with my own business and bring to the table many skills and points of view that I do not have in my business. We are able to be very frank & honest with each other, able to share bad news with each other as well as good news!
In between our meetings we are able to support one another by liking & sharing on facebook, by RT’ing (retweeting) on Twitter, to G+ one anothers Google posts, to like and re-pin each others pictures on Pinterest amongst other things! With the additional interaction that we give each other we are able to send our message far wider than we could if we were working alone!
Very recently I was invited to join a small group – outside of North Devon – where we again would help promote each others blogs! By spreading the word with, well strangers really, we are able to get into parts of the world where we would otherwise be unable to go – ot at least it would be much harder to get there.
Have you thought about teaming up with other people to help spread their word further where in return they will help you spread your word further? It works you know, you just need to find a few people with like minded ideas and strategies, offer to help them in return for help with your own – there is no need to be in the same business or even similar business, you just need to be able to give 10 minutes a day to each other and you have spread your message and theirs far further than if you try and do it all yourself!
Want to know more? Give me a call and I will happily explain further.
