TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #906 – Why is November 17 important?

Monday Topic: Credibility —

Quote: “Start by doing what’s necessary; then what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible”

 

I was reading a blog post the other day about, “How to Become a Millionaire in 5 Years or Less.”

The title intrigued me.  And to my surprise it did not say “win the lottery” – so what did it say?

It was surprising that it didn’t say the traditional “start a business”, “save money”, etc.  That is what I expected.

What the article focused on were things such as, find a good mentor, create a vision of wealth, find clarity, focus on results instead of habits…but the one thing that caught my attention causing me to read the entire article, a couple times was…

Develop a 90 day process to measure the past and multiply the future.  This is very interesting.  I like to goal set/achieve… but the future pace is quite a concept.

Start by looking over the past quarter at your “wins” – what are the big accomplishments?  Once you establish this, HOW did they come together?

For example, if you had an increase in income… HOW did it happen…. meaning what widget sold and then HOW did you sell it?  Were you making more offers…

This may seem elementary but the goal to a million in the article mindset was to then take that previous success, focus on it and do it again.  Seems simple, right?

Why is this important? Because today is our credibility topic and your success and understanding of how you achieve that success will project into all of your areas of business, from a simple conversation with a customer to a blog post you write.

So today, even though it’s not the end of the quarter, review the last 90 days.  Go back to November 17… yep, just before Thanksgiving and write down the answers to the following…

1- What went well for you?
2- What would you identify as the top three wins?
3- What are the take-aways from the wins?
4- What in the last 90 days made you super happy?
5- Where do you need to simply STOP and do something else?

If you want to post in the comments, let’s hear it.  If you’re more comfortable writing your list on your own… that’s great too. But please do this exercise!  If you keep doing the same thing as yesterday, you’ll get yesterday today… but maybe if you target #2, #3 and #5 today you’ll get powerful results. 

It’s worth a try, right?!?!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 904 – Why “Think Waffle House” For an Amazing Marketing Idea

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

Friday Topic: Big Money Small Change

When you think of a Valentine’s Day meal does you mind automatically go to a candle light dinner?  Probably, marketers are sneaky.  They plant an idea in your head and it sticks…

But this article is about the Waffle House and how they have a tradition of taking reservations, yes reservations, for meals at their restaurants on Valentine’s Day!

They go all out with flowers and white table cloths…

https://www.foxnews.com/food-drink/waffle-house-valentines-day-destination

Here’s the cool thing – this is an EXPERIENCE.

It’s exactly what people, your customers, YOUR TRIBE are craving.

They want new, exciting, and familiar.

What is better than going to a restaurant, dining with waitstaff that you already know and having a special holiday experience.

I mentioned this to several people and they all wanted to eat there!  Something is being done right if you need reservations, right?!?

So look at your business and how can you take an ordinary day or holiday normally not celebrated with the business services you offer and how can you get in on the party?

There is a way… just look outside the box.

As you explore your possibilities, just “Think Waffle House” they are already open on a Valentine’s Day – so by adding table cloths and flowers they turn an average day in to a big money small change day!

BTW… I love the Waffle House but I live an entire state away from one so it takes a vacation for me to get there… A couple days ago my husband sent the article to me… This must be the next best thing to going to the Waffle House?  Not quite….  He’s not off the hook that easy and there will be a visit on the next vacation.

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

Quote: “Never let your memories be greater than your dreams.”—Doug Ivester

 

It was funny, I just received a message from a friend that I haven’t talked to in a couple years… it’s a clear out of the blue message, “how have you been?”

That’s a hard question to answer.

Do you answer the subtle “fine”?

Do you start in on everything you’ve done for the last 4 years?

Really, it’s a difficult question to answer because you start to sound like you’re living in the past… that’s when I found today’s quote and thought I have to share this!  It’s a total motivator to keep us on the moving forward path.

Looking back is important to see how far we’ve come but “eye on the prize” right?  Something to look forward to.

So today – keep in mind you’ve got to look forward and plan because like the quote says – don’t let the memories become better than the dreams!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 901 – Infinity Sellers Put a New Spin on Useful Information

Tribeology: Learn It. Do It. Profit. Decide who you want to work with, attract them, and sell them things they want to buy! It really is that simple.

Tuesday: Content and Consistency

Quote: “Absorb what is useful, discard what is not, add what is uniquely your own.” Bruce Lee

 

It’s very hard to create something new.  I mean entirely new.

We think an iPhone is super cool because it came into our lives in what… like 2007?  But what is an iPhone… it’s a cell phone, camera, alarm clock, stop watch, note pad, video camera, level, flash light, music machine… it goes on and on… but nothing is new, it got rid of old technology and put it’s own spin on useful things!

Use this example in terms of the content you provide.

Nothing is new.

Even in my tribe building ideas… an email list is just a database.  Email is a newsletter.  and sending is just mail… this is nothing new!   It’s just gets rid of the unwanted things and puts a new spin on useful things.

When you create content you can find sourcing all over the internet.  Again, nothing is new but the standout articles put a new spin on useful information.

So using this skill, here’s what I did.  I wrote a free guide. Now I’m a little strange, I like writing research reports. It’s an odd “like” but I do enjoy it.  So I wrote a new workbook about marketing for your small store.

Again, nothing new.

But I was writing it as I had my TV on in the background.  And my channel switched to the Hallmark Channel.

I know, it seems strange that it changees on it’s own, but it does.

So there I am watching a Hallmark Movie, and you know you can’t change the channel because regardless of how cheesy the story line, they mesmerize you!

But I noticed something… they have a “romantic” view of marketing…  I’d say delusional view of marketing.  Who has the opportunity to spend thousands of dollars to host a ball to feature your new chocolate chip cookies?  OK I’m all about the chocolate chip cookies, but not for thousands in promotions.

I say set up an email list and sell the cookies to the tribe.  OR keep the cookies and eat them and sell something else.  (can you tell I’m hungry?)

OK but here’s the point.  It annoyed me this marketing that “always works” – UGHHHHH you know how much skill goes into a good campaign, heck yes you do…. you have created your own campaigns the do not involve a ball!

So there it was… my spin for my marketing workbook…   Infinity Sellers – Where Your Small Store Marketing and a Hallmark Movie Collide.

IMG_8124

Grab your own copy for free… it’s about 30 pages.  (I told you I like research reports) – it’s an instant download… You can find the information all over the internet, but I put it together into one book with a cute little spin, because I like Hallmark Movies.  OK I just admitted it.

Whew.

So now – create your very own content based off of useful information, just put a clever spin on it!   OH and go grab my free guide at InfinitySellers.com

Tribeology: Learn It. Do It. Profit.  Decide who you want to work with, attract them, and sell them things they want to buy!  It really is that simple.

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

Quote: “We didn’t realize we were making memories we just knew we were having fun.” Winnie the Pooh

 

As you clean the restroom, balance the register, post your new sale on Facebook… you might think “fun?” Really?

When you started your business it was fun and exciting…

Now it’s more “ho hum” like Eeyore.

Today… find the joy!

Do you love how I picked a Winnie the Pooh quote and brought Eeyore into a post on motivation.  Hummmm maybe I’m writing from which I know.

My post started to feel stale so I added a little whimsy… My post is now not just a “motivate yourself” piece of inspiration, it’s a “lead by example you can really do this” piece of inspiration.

Go for it.  Find the Joy.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 894 – The Effortless Way To Increase Loyalty With Your Tribe

Tribeology: Learn It. Do It. Profit. Decide who you want to work with, attract them, and sell them things they want to buy! It really is that simple.

Monday: Subject Matter Expert

Quote: “Leader loyalty strengthens when the relationship is based on TRUST!”

 

Remember back to your dating days… that time when you “put yourself out there” to meet someone to spend the rest of your life with…  maybe it worked, maybe it didn’t.

But why didn’t the date or worse yet… why didn’t the relationship work?

Most excuses come down to trust.  Think about it, if some cheated, spent money on the credit cards without you knowing… both are trust issues.

The funny thing is, as we are developing or Infinity Marketing Machine we have 5 C’s to work with – Credibility, Content, Consistency, Customers, Cash… well, the very first C and every Monday we talk about Credibility.

Credibility is your trustworthiness.  Even when we focus on your status as a Subject Matter Expert – at the base we are still focused on trust.

Your trust with your tribe.

If you have a good leader… you will follow.  If you have a bad leader… you question EVERYTHING.

When you have trust, you have loyalty.

Building trust is the effortless way to loyalty.  But that does not mean building trust is effortless.  It’s actually far from it.

To build trust you must have credibility and often one great way to do this is to receive honors and awards from third party sources.

An excellent opportunity is with your local Chamber of Commerce or your local newspaper that runs a “best of” series each year.  Get customers to vote for you or your business.

Another opportunity is with testimonials.  Now, a testimonial is a little different from a review.  They are typically more positive because you’ve asked a customer for their words.  A review… yikes… that is uncontrollable.  Hopefully good, but sometimes not.  🙂

As you get going with your Monday, think about building trust.

Look at your local paper and Chamber of Commerce and find out what awards you might apply for, and then also ask for testimonials from key customers to use in brochures or on your website.

Both ideas are fantastic avenues to great social proof!

Both are excellent resources for building trust.

And trust is the number one way to loyalty… and loyalty transforms customers to a tribe.
