TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 670 – The Friday of Summer

Quote: “Let the world know why you’re here and do it with passion”

Monday: Subject Matter Expert

Share your expertise! After all, what’s the point of being an expert if you don’t tell others how you did it?

You might be wondering why you’d work so hard to get to the level of an expert… then just share it all an be at a competitive advantage.

Well… is that it? Is this as good as you get?  If you are done learning, technically you’re done being a Subject Matter Expert.

Part of being a Subject Matter Expert is your willingness to continue to learn and explore because you have passion about a chosen area.

Therefore, helping others by sharing your knowledge does not weaken you, it strengthens your following AND you will increase your knowledge with the feedback from the ideas that your students share on their learning journey.

You will learn from those who follow you.  That’s part of the treat.

How do I know this?

I brought a woman out on our dock last week, I was giving her a tour of our marina.  She mentioned that, “It’s the Friday of Summer”– I asked, “what?”

She went on to say, there was an anticipation in the air at the marina.  It was like a Friday night of a weekend… but bigger… it was the Friday of Summer.

Her description was pretty cool.  I’m an expert in our marina and how it works, ways to enjoy our lake, and the marketing and messaging… but you know what… I learned from her.  Then I shared it in our weekly email newsletter.

Being a Subject Matter Expert requires you to share your knowledge. Don’t ever be afraid to do it, you will learn something from each interaction you create.  When you’re willing to share you will learn.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 667 – Quality is a Habit

Quote: “Quality is not an act but a habit.” Aristotle

Thursday:  Infinity Customer

 

Tomorrow I want you to create a post for Facebook and Instagram, I need to you to create a blog post and make sure to record your vlog.  Get to work on your free download PDF that you can use to create interest and capture emails.

OH emails…

Make sure to get that email done too.

Now I need you to do all of this every day.

If anyone told you this… as a new person, just starting out with your social media presence, you’d quit before you start!

BUT… if you started with one post on Facebook every day and got used to doing that, soon you’d be able to tweak the post to use on Instagram.  It wouldn’t take much to actually switch from Facebook to your blog post in longer form and then create a “highlight” post back to Facebook…  That could lead to reading your blog on a podcast or vlog…

Are you getting the idea?

Your habit of that one simple Facebook post opens the door to sooooooo much more that becomes very manageable.

It’s your repetition that makes your customers bond with you.  The repetition transforms the “one and done” into “infinity”.   It’s just that the repetition is the act of writing the content, not the actual content itself… because posting the exact same post day after day would be lame.

However, to create the amazing content to build the bond you’ve got to develop the habit!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 666 – Laugh at Yourself.

Quote: “Remember, your best is yet to come! Keep climbing!!”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

Right now we’re in the middle of “Spring Rush” at the marina — what’s Spring Rush?  OMG… it’s the time between ice out and Memorial Day Weekend.

It’s this crazy time frame when people pick up their boats from the long long winter.

This winter was especially long in Minnesota.  After all, we broke the all time snowiest February on record…. so everyone just wants to get outside.

Well… there are still things that have to be done to prep a boat, there are things that have to be done to prep a marina… and there are only so many hours a day.  Therefore, when it hits 75 degrees people call and think that they can pick up their boat “today”.  I mean it’s only one boat.

They need to be gently reminded that we process 10 boats a day and there are 80 on the list before them.  Alrightie, that aside.

I thought today would be a great day to feature the advice of “keep going” so I looked up this phrase on Twitter and I was all set to use the Lyrics from Rodney Atkins… “If you’re going through hell, keep on going…”

Then I realized this is episode 666!  HAHAHAHAHA

That really made me laugh!  I got no words of inspiration.  Just KEEP GOING.

So this midweek motivation is all about the big belly laugh.

So…. Laugh at yourself and just enjoy life.

TribeogyBlog.com – Episode 664 – Start! You’ve Got to Start!

“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” -Arthur Ashe

Monday: Subject Matter Expert

 

Stop making it so complicated.  It’s one of the greatest skills you need to learn.

I think it’s harder for those north of 40 to learn because we have gown up with “professional” quality words, photos, and video… but really, if you don’t publish something, it doesn’t matter how bad or good it is, right?

Saying “north of 40” is a little crazy, but I realized last night that isn’t always the case.

My niece has wanted, I mean really wanted, her very own YouTube channel.  Well… her mom finally agreed to it.

Engaging her into a conversation, I wanted to see where she was at… she started talking about production schedules… then she said, “I don’t know how to edit”, then she started talking herself out of it.

OMG!  She’s way south of 40… what’s going on!

It seems that every suffers from the “professional quality” issue.  Or is it a procrastination issue…

My advice to her is the same I’m going to give to you.

START

You don’t have to publish, but you do have to press record.  If you don’t press record you’ll have NOTHING to publish… if you have NOTHING to publish no one will know you are a Subject Matter Expert!

Everyone is an expert at something, but if you don’t write or record about it, no one will ever know it!

Remember, in the case of my niece, if she records… I mean pick up your iphone and press record… someone on Fiverr can edit it – OR you can just press record, talk, and be real, natural, and forget about the “professional” polish.

AGAIN, just press record.

START!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 661 – Over and Over

Quote: “Remember… No matter how good your feedback is, you always start over with the next customer!!”

Thursday: Infinity Customer

Do you remember being in school and your football team reached the end of the season… you had a great team they won a lot, in fact, they qualified for regionals…  Then a year passes and the team starts playing again and they picked up where they left off playing for the regional championship, right?

WRONG.

The next year they start over.

This is exactly the same thing you have with your customers.  You might have a wonderful experience with a customer and the next one hates you.

Often I have this conversation, and I learned it working in college admissions,  but I won’t say bad things about our competition.  I had a customer a week ago tell me how awful our competitor is… well, not even the competitor, the actual owner… who is a friend. My standard answer is, plenty of people don’t like me either.

It’s true.

The reason?  Well, they’re not my ideal customer.

Your ideal customer will mesh with your rules and expectations – if they do not, you have conflict and sometimes bad experiences.  That’s why it’s so important to carefully identify your ideal customer from the start!

So where does this leave us?

Take the time to identify your ideal customer… think of the person you enjoy serving.  The person that makes you want to unlock your door each day.  What does this person do for a living, how do you find more of them, and more important, why do you like working with them?

At a minimum… they pay their bill.  No sense in doing business with someone that doesn’t pay their bill, is a slow pay, or that you have to chase down to give you money.

When you determine your ideal customer you will never have a problem making a decision for products and services, all you have to do is say, “would customer X buy this?” – if no… then don’t carry it.

It really is that simple.

Your goal is to create that person that returns over and over… make “that person” one you really enjoy!
