A beautiful day… one so beautiful we decide to hop on the bikes and go for a nice long ride. So off we go… downhill, uphill :(, and a lot of leisurely routes too.
Two and a half hours later we find ourselves at a park with green grass, tall shady trees, and a very peaceful atmosphere. What a great place to hang out for a bit, take a break and unwind… so we did. Absolutely wonderful!
After our break we're back on the bikes and starting our hour-long journey home… when suddenly Pat's bike felt quite strange to him. His back tire was completely flat! Well, we couldn't go on like that, so we had to call for support. We called one of our sons to get the vehicle with the bike rack and then pick us up.
We got home safely and quite easily… but if we didn't have support, it would have been a different story. Could we have gotten home without our son's help? Yes, but it would have been a lot more difficult, and took a lot longer.
The same applies to the online world.
You can get so much more accomplished, and get to where you want to be quicker and easier, with support from others. Yes, you could get it figured out on your own, generate your own traffic and prospects, but it would be a lot more difficult and take a lot longer than if you had the support of others.
That's why building mutually beneficial relationships and becoming part of an online community are so very important to your success. What is an online community? Basically, it's a place where people can ask for and get help and support, learn how to do things online, have a place to be heard and share their knowledge, as well as increase their ability to generate traffic and prospects.
We know many of you belong to an online tribe, which is like a “mini-community”… a place where people join together to support each other in generating more traffic to each others' sites. And of course, like on other social sites, you have a great opportunity to develop some great relationships as well.
In all aspects of life, the online world included, having support and good relationships is so very important. “We are not alone”… and nor should we be.
