Building An Online Business

5 Things That Leaders Do

To have a successful business you need to start thinking like a leader. This was one of the first things I learnt when I started my online business journey. But what does that mean?

Some of us don’t feel like natural leaders and have no desire to be in charge of others.

But leadership is more than that. It is the ability to guide another person or group of people to a goal and to motivate and inspire them along the way.

There are 5 things that leaders do, and if you want to grow a successful online business you may find trying to do each thing every day will help you to help your audience:

  1. Daily visualisation & meditation on your goals
  2. Income-producing activities
  3. Personal development
  4. Mastermind with other leaders
  5. Cultivate the expectation of leadership

Daily Visualisation & Meditation on Your Goals

Mediation is not for everyone, but clearing your mind and getting super clear on your goals can help motivate you to take the right action to move your business forward. Visualisation first thing in the morning can help get you in the right mindset to work on your dreams, no matter which side of the bed you woke-up on.

Income-producing Activities

If you’re using SEO or other free marketing techniques, you need to be promoting your content to drive the right people to your website. Pinterest is great for this, creating pins is free and a great way to show people exactly what it is you do.

Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram all have the option to use paid advertising to promote your content too, and if you’re looking to do some paid advertising these can really help to drive targeted people to your content.

Personal Development

It’s so important to keep learning whilst you’re growing your business. The online world is always evolving and by investing in your own learning you’ll be better equipped to adjust your business strategy when necessary.

Podcasts, Tedtalks and books are a great place to start. Here’s a Tedtalk by Stephen Downey who discusses the importance of investing in each moment, and a list of 5 books to read to get started with an online business.

Mastermind with Other Leaders

We learn a lot by observing and discussing with others. Masterminding doesn’t have to be done in person, you can join a webinar or just chat with a group on Facebook. Sharing ideas is a great way to learn and meeting with others with similar goals to yourself is a great way to motivate yourself.

Cultivate the Expectation of Leadership

Spend time to create one piece of new content each day. That could be a blog post, YouTube video, Instagram post or podcast etc. Creating content with value for your viewers will help them get to know, like and trust you.

Remember that there is value in your journey, so Learn, Do, Teach!
