TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 778 – Your New Question

Quote: “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.” – Tony Robbins.

Thursday: Infinity Customer

 

Are you looking to increase your sales?  Then why are you doing the same thing the same way… today’s quote even reminds us of that!

Before I tried tribe building, I was doing the traditional thing… I was buying products and selling them…

Just like I do now.

It seems like a good idea, right?  I mean to increase sales you need to find people that “want what you have” and are willing to give you money for it.

BUT…

Instead of spending increased money on advertising I started growing a tribe.

This will take time and effort, but the great thing is when you commit to the effort you will gain a big result.  You’ll develop a group of people that want to hang out with you!

These people will bring a common energy and that’s when they transform to a tribe.

The fun begins to happen at this point.  The big benefit to attracting a tribe is when you’re sitting around and decide, “I want to make more money what should I sell?”

Wait.

Wrong question…

When you attract a tribe you no longer ask, “What should I sell?” your new question becomes, “What does my tribe need?”

There’s an entire group of people following you… they’re hanging out with you… but they don’t care what you want to sell them. Nope. They care about what they need!

When you answer this question, then you will have an opportunity to make money.

SO… today, ask yourself, “What does my tribe need?” and then go out and find a product or service to fulfill that need!  That’s when you will make money.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 777 – Why You Need to Put YOU First!

Quote: “Work harder on yourself, than you do on your job.” JRohn

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

What good are you if you are sick?  Not good at all.

This is one thing that is the hardest thing to understand!  I watched a “live” yesterday – and the gal sells a bunch of stuff.  She’s an entrepreneur, and a darn good one.

She was selling things… and sniffling.  AND she said, “I don’t have any PTO”.

Today – I was listening to a different business group and one gal said, “I’ve started eating healthy and exercising regularly” — this was in response to her report on “what have you done this week?” question.

It’s true though, today’s quote is to inspire you to consider your health and YOU.  You deserve it — today… work harder on yourself than you do on your job!

Your tribe needs you at your best!  UMMMMMM YOU Need YOU at your best!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 771 – Why It’s OK to Learn as You Go

Quote: “We learn the way on the way.”

Thursday: Infinity Customers

 

Are you afraid?  Does it make you nervous to jump into email marketing?

Fear not!  Just start!

The crazy thing about this quote is that it’s true!  We learn our way as we go along.  Sure we need some sort of plan and training.  I mean there are some technical skills to acquire and laws to understand…

BUT

Much of what we are all doing is an art.  It’s trial and error.  However, with email you own your list. That’s what makes the “trial and error” acceptable.

Rallying and entertaining a tribe is fun because you’re attracting people you want to be around.  But more important is the opportunity you have to work with them tomorrow, the next day and so on…

You control the message you’ll send them AND you control vehicle.  When you create a list for email you’re in control, this is so much different from Facebook… you don’t control Facebook.  If they change a rule, dude, you can be out of business.

When you create an email list you send to everyone… now that doesn’t mean 100% will open, some messages will land in junk boxes… but you “own” the list.  I selected to say “own” in quotations because, while the name is on your list, if you’re hanging out with me we adopt a working philosophy that it’s a privilege to communicate with our list.

Anyway…

My point is this… start to view your list as an ATM.  When you respect your followers and then spoil them by providing great information they desire… dang, you get to offer them products over and over and over.  If you want to raise a little money, offer a product… this really works.

So while you might feel like you’re learning as you go… guess what… you are!

(and that’s OK)

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 770 – Tomorrow Will Happen

Quote: “Life always offers you a second chance. It is called tomorrow.”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

Goals happen via a plan… so when the plan is interrupted, you quit. Right?

Wrong!

You adjust and keep going.  I know, that’s super simplistic but don’t give up on the big goal.  You may have set backs and the original plan may be detoured but look at the quote for today — tomorrow is a new day.

Oh wait, stole that from Scarlett O’Hara.

But it’s totally true.  When you’re having a bad day – or string of bad days… fear not, as long as you keep moving toward the goal – even if it’s moving sideways… you will attain it!   Yes, sometimes you take a step backward – and that’s OK, too.  Just keep your eye on the prize.

Tomorrow will happen.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 769 – What Does Your Tribe Need?

Quote: “If you’re waiting around to make the perfect content, you’ll be waiting around forever”

Tuesday: Content & Consistency

 

Are you stuck?  Have you convinced yourself that you’ve “got nothing to write” or “I’m burned out”

HA

Today’s quote spoke to me… I’m sure it’s tough to be a perfectionist, I’m far from one… but I do know this.

How do I know this?

Just read any post I’ve ever written. There are spelling errors, grammatical errors… the list goes on and on (no need to point them out, I know they’re there!)  But, the thing is… if I waited until it was perfect I would never press “publish”.

If I waited until it was perfect I would be scared to death to ever press “publish” and you know the problem with that…?  The problem is YOU would never get to read what I have to say… and that’s wrong.

The content you provide is a gift.  It’s an amazing gift for your tribe.  The moment you convince yourself “I’ve got nothing to write” that’s the moment you need to stop, sit, and reevaluate your leadership.  You are the leader and your tribe needs you…so what information do they need right now?

When you answer that question you’ll have plenty to write about!

Stop worrying about perfection, and start focusing on the needs of your tribe.

Today – create a post that your tribe needs!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 768 – The Simple Success of Talking to THEM

Quote: “Complexity is your enemy”

Monday: Credibility (Subject Matter Expert)

 

Last Saturday I shared a simple “Try This”.  It was a soda machine that had a sign on it that said “new flavors” that the vendor just wrote in a marker the new options.

Simple, right?

Well… it’s so obvious that it’s often overlooked.

It’s important to keep the simplicity of this story in mind as you set out on building your subject matter expert status!

How is that possible?

The simplest things are often the best understood.  And as a subject matter expert you want to lead your tribe.  They need you!

BUT

They’ll never follow you if they have no idea what the heck you’re talking about.  Remember this.

It’s super easy to get too complicated.  Especially when it comes to your messaging.  Remember to focus on speaking the words your customers understand.  If it helps, talk about the emotion of your product, not the tech specs!

I often catch myself doing this when I talk about our Dry Stack Service.  See… I just did it!  What the heck is Dry Stack?

We’re a marina and instead of keeping your boat in the water at a dock, we store it in a warehouse, on a custom built rack.  We can stack them three high using a really big forklift.  It’s very cool.  But that’s where “Dry Stack” comes from…

Well, knowing the product as well as I do, I realized I was talking about launch times, hours, cleanliness of boat — and no one cared!  Sure, visitors were polite… but what really resonated was what THEY understood.

Family time, memories, and easy.  They call.  They pack their cooler. They get in the boat.  That’s it.

We do the heavy lifting (all puns intended)

When I started talking about all the summer photos that could be hanging on THEIR living room wall.  That’s when I got my message simple, understandable, and relatable.  That’s when THEY started to listen to all of my “complicated” jargon about how the dry stack service works.  That’s when it was important to be a subject matter expert.

But first I had to learn to get simple.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 767 – Increase Sales With This Simple Idea

Saturday:  Try This

Keep it simple.  Increase sales with this simple idea.

Make a sign — put it by your product.

Yep… this week is that simple.

OK, there’s a little more to my explanation.  In my opinion we are making things too difficult. You are trying to figure out when when to post, how many times to post, and what to post – and you forget you’re in business to SELL.

I went to pick up new shoes the other day.  It’s not what you think, I was on a parts run and needed new brake shoes for a trailer.

That brought me from the city desk to the will call and right next to the will call was a pop machine (remember I’m from Minnesota).

Did you see what’s on the pop machine?  That snazzy high tech announcement of new products.  It’s a pre-made half sheet of paper that had blank lines that you write new flavors on.

That’s it.  Scotch tape (remember I’m from Minnesota), a marker, and a sign.  Hang it in the area you’re drawing attention to.

It really doesn’t get much simpler!

Increase sales… now.  Look around your office/business/website and draw attention.  You can even make the sign, take a photo, and post the photo online – I know that’s a little more complicated.

BUT

Focus on increasing sales!
