Why Online Business Leaders Suck- 2 Common Complaints
Have you ever been irritated with some of the leaders in our industry?
Ever been frustrated with their lack of attention, or been brushed off by some you thought actually cared?
Or maybe you’re like me, and you’ve gotten emails from people who are discouraged by some of the leaders they’ve encountered.
A Closer Look At 2 Common Complaints.
1. “None of the leaders will help me unless I buy their stuff.”
Maybe there are marketers out there that are just trying to peddle their goods, I’m not denying that. However, I wouldn’t call them ‘leaders’.
Everyone has the same issues, and questions when they are starting out.
“How do I make a blog”, “What do I need to know about emails, and auto responders”, “Where do I get leads”, “How do I bring people to my site”, “What is SEO and how can I get it to work for me”…
I could go on and on here, but I’m sure you get the idea.
The more people you connect with, the busier you become. Questions flood in, as well as requests for help. These are welcome.
Always ask if you have a question. A good leader is honored to answer them, to help you out.
What is the absolute best way to answer everyone’s questions and help them all get started?
Obviously there’s not enough time in the day to walk everyone through building a blog, or the in’s and out’s of SEO, and social media.
So what’s the smartest way to get ‘er done?
To find the best solutions, and point people in the right direction.
This could mean either an affiliate product/course, a free one, or even something they have personally created, as a solution to the common problems new people are facing.
Don’t get frustrated if you ask a question, and the answer that comes back points to toward a product.
You are being given what the leader feels is the absolute best solution to your problem.
Thank them for it, and at least check it out.
2. “They charge too much for coaching”
This is a funny one to me.
Yes, I’ll agree 100% that there are some expensive coaches out there. I remember the first one I heard of, my jaw just about hit the floor. I thought the person was nuts.
I remember hanging up from that call and just laughing. I thought they must be absolutely crazy.
Now that I’ve spent some money on coaching myself, I don’t think paying any amount for coaching is crazy.
I mean, it all depends on who your paying, and what you’re paying for.
I’m not saying that people are never paying too much for coaching, or that they won’t be disappointed later. Do your homework and find out if this person has what you’re looking for in a coach. You won’t click with everyone.
Also keep in mind that you get out of it what you put into it. Just like buying a course, if you never dig in and apply what’s in there, it won’t help you.
Don’t pay for a coach unless you’re ready to BE coached. You’ll be throwing your money away if you do.
Thinking about it now, if I had decided to sign up and pay for that first coach I heard about, I would have been wasting my money. Not because of the coach, but because I wasn’t ready to be coached at that point.
Keep In Mind
Watch the way the leaders conduct themselves. Sometimes you may not understand why they do the things they do.
When you’re out there in front, leading the way, remember what you observed.
Improve on what you’ve learned.
If you don’t like the way someone did something, do it better.
For some things, you’ll discover why they do things the way they do.
For other things, you’ll change it to fit you and your style. That’s perfect, that’s what you should do.
Be yourself, get out there and show us whatcha got!
Make it a prosperous day!
