One of the most effective business strategies to emerge out of the internet age has been the idea of accountability partners or coaches.
You can choose a single accountability partner such as a business peer or business team member if you prefer—but one of the best ways to find good accountability partners lies in joining a group where its members all have a common goal.
For example, say your big goal this year is to not only write your signature eBook, but get it published and promoted through Amazon Kindle. If you join a Kindle Publishing group where you are all focused on producing a viable, active Kindle book, you will gain multiple accountability partners who will:
- Cheer you on
- Help you get past blocks
- Give you feedback
- Give you advice
- Write reviews for your book
- Help you promote your book
You can find dedicated Groups geared specifically towards your own goals:
- In private Membership Sites
- In dedicated forums
- In dedicated Facebook Groups
- In dedicated LinkedIn Group
- In paid Groups
- In free Groups
It should go without saying, however, that while free Groups do have their uses, you will usually find more focused support (and better resources, as well as access to experts) in a paid Group built around achieving a goal. The experts in that Group are exchanging their time and talents in their area of expertise for your money. Many Groups of this type can be just the ticket to help you achieve that next goal and turn profitable in business.
You can find Groups (paid and free) for almost every type of goal: Launching a product, mastering web design or WordPress, writing a book, learning social media and many more goals.
