Having worked as a Virtual Assistant for over a decade and as an Online Business Manager for a year, I have seen what it looks like inside businesses that hit 6-figure months (sometimes even more). We’re talking about $100,000 at least every month. It’s mind blowing so I thought I’d write about what make these businesses successful in terms of how their teams collaborate to produce these incredible results.
Team Communication Tips From Successful Digital Entrepreneurs
They use a project management platforms. The successful digital entrepreneurs I’ve worked with all have one thing in common: they all use project management platforms to organize projects and timelines.
All of them, folks.
They don’t rely on back-and-forth emails or text messages when communicating with each other. Instead, they hold all conversations within their chosen project management platform so that everyone is on the same page and no communication is lost in the web.

They touch base weekly. On top of the project management platform, I noticed that the teams led by successful entrepreneurs go on a weekly call via Zoom to discuss project statuses and plan for the targets the week.
They use this opportunity, too, to raise any concerns and resolve anything that are holding the team back.
These calls have an agenda, which is set before the call. Anyone who submits a line in the agenda is heard. I love this because if you need to speak up about something, you’re heard, which is something very important in teams.
They use Slack for announcements or quick discussions. Do you need to remind the team about an upcoming launch? Or do you need to make a quick announcement? If it can be done via chat, a lot of teams I’ve been part of use Slack.
It’s important to remember not to use it as a project management tool, though, but more like a place to start quick chats with your team.
