TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #563 – Turn Mundane Tasks Into Exciting Learning Opportunities

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” Gandhi

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

This is definitely the type type of quote you want to print up and hang on the wall.  It’s so AMAZING.  You totally want to stand at the top of a hill, arms outstretched, sun gracing your face and you exhale.

That’s what you feel when you read this quote.

There are dreams of selling everything, moving to an island and soaking in the reggae band at the bar while drinking a ginormous drink with a huge slice of pineapple on the rim.

You want to run free in the meadow being chased by a pack of golden retriever puppies.

Don’t all of these things sound amazing!  Especially when you’re staring at your unread emails? haha

Let’s look at the second half of the quote — Learn.  Learn more. Then learn some more!

I was listening to a book as I was driving today.  I was running errands, and I HATE to run errands. It’s winter, I’m fortunate to have a warm coat, but I hate not being able to move!  UGH.  But there I was… driving to pick up stuff at 5 different places. AND I was listening to an audio book.

I was listening to a marketing book.  It’s about creating remarkable moments and how to craft them… there will probably be a post about it in the future (wink) – but today I was learning.  One example is about New Zealand and their innovation of a Sky Couch.

YIKES!

They added a foot rest to the 3 across seats.  It flips up and makes a futon.  Imagine that!  On a trip across the ocean you can lie down and NOT be in first class.  (Granted, I’d like to be in First Class)

So what does this have to do with the quote for today?  OMG.  I was doing life (mundane), learning (audio book), and living (dreaming) — all at the same time.

You can multitask anything! 🙂

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #560 – Don’t Miss this Easy Way To Share Your Vibe.

Saturday: Try This

Never miss an opportunity to share your vibe.

Email, posts, websites… these are all great places to share your mission statement or history…

BUT look at this!

T-vineyardvines.png

Vineyard Vines uses their shipping box as an opportunity to create their vibe in your home.  You open the cover and they share their story, right there, under the cover.  It opens up to look like a showpiece!

Now, it might be hard or expensive to replicate this exact style of box…

BUT that doesn’t mean it’s impossible.

If you send a bill, include a small flier that shares your story, vibe, message… it’s “free” to mail something additional.

If you send a package – you can create a sticker and get a similar vibe!  Include your story in the package.

Use the same type of sticker and attach to your shopping bag.

There are endless ways to create this little bit of magic for your customers.

TRY THIS!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #559 – The Number One Rule of Social Media Marketing – Don’t Cut Your Own Bangs!

QUOTE: “Not all of us can do great things, But we can do small things with great love”

Friday: Big Money Small Change

 

Are you funny?  Can you take a photo?

Then guess what… you can be really awesome at social media marketing.  How do I know?

OMG… look at this example!

img_7254.png

We are looking at an example of amazing tribe building.  It’s NOT expensive, it’s just fun. Can you imagine getting your hair cut here?  The business looks like they are down to earth and FUNNY.

All they did was take their in store display board with a funny saying that relates to hair… something that is a part of their normal day… they took a photo and posted it on their Instagram page.

That’s It!

People in their store appreciate it and experience the essence of their vibe.  People on line also understand their vibe.

I love to say that my mission is, “I help real word small businesses go from ‘outrageously complicated social media marketing tactics’ to ‘attracting ideal customers that buy things.'”  Now, I didn’t help this person… I just came across their post.  In terms of keeping it simple and focusing on attracting customers that buying thing, it’s awesome, awesome, awesome!

It’s crisp, clean, and simple, AND when you dig deeper that see it’s performing an amazing job of Tribeology!  It builds loyalty and you know what… it does not cost a lot to do this!

So you can do this too!  I’d love to see your examples, install my free app “Infinitypreneur” – it’s FREE in both the Apple and Google App Stores… in the app there’s a link to share your marketing examples.  Like I said, I want to see them!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 554 – A Short and Sweet Post

Saturday: Try This

Create an Experience!  Look at this candy display…  It evokes the “Old School” general store feel with a little nostalgia in the middle of the fancy hotel.

Why is this important?

Look in the jars… there are Tootsie Rolls, suckers, and other “penny” candies… it looks like Jolly Ranchers…  Super ordinary candy.

BUT, the experience of the glass jar, metal tin, and wooden crate make this a memory.  Even if you are not buying candy, you slow down just a little to appreciate the display.

If you stopped in and saw a slat wall with pegs and hanging bags of tootsie rolls or jolly ranchers would you get the same “longing for yesteryear” feel?

Nope.

So… the question is, “How can you enhance the mood at your business?” and if your in person area is not a retail store, you can do this online with photos, fonts, info graphics and even music!  Look for these opportunities to dare I say, enhance the “VIBE” at your business!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #550 – Tired of Blanket Results? I’m Not!

QUOTE: “Opportunities are everywhere; in tough or ordinary things of life too!”

Tuesday: Content and Consistency

 

Happy New Year!  It’s a time of new possibilities and exciting fresh starts… so you know what I’m going to do?

I’m going to take a look back at the last 8 days of 2018… why?  Well, I’m just that kind of person. haha

Nah, I really want to show you how to take something very ordinary and make it into a big opportunity.  Last week on Tuesday, our Content & Consistency day I showed you how I turned a tree into multiple content sources.

Well… here’s the extraordinary part of the tree…

I reused it!  Well… I repurposed it into a New Years Theme with a ball drop.

OK, it’s a little more than that.  What I did over the past 8 days was put my Tribeology Guidelines to the test and orchestrated a special event.  My challenge was this… it’s winter and my site Pontoon Girl is focused on boating.  Sure, some parts of the USA are warm enough to boat… but where I am we have over a foot of ice on the lake.

Yet… my results over 8 days:
101 New Pontoon Girls!
89 trusted me with BOTH email and mailing address
21 NEW installs of the Pontoon Girl App
47 Social Media Shares
A compounded social conversion rate of 459.1%
$110.00 in Sales
Over 100 new follows on Facebook!

The sales were icing on the cake, my goal was to increase my mailing list.  Which I did!  I grew my list by 28.9% in eight days which is incredible… and in this situation it’s a “summer vibe” lifestyle that grew in the middle of the winter!

How did I do it?
I hosted a contest and make it into a special event.  The grand prize was a Pontoon Girl blanket!  However, your skeptical side should say… yes, but these are not loyal followers, they signed up just to enter the contest.

My messaging to attract people to my tribe had the same focus.  I focused on people interested in pontoon boats and I showed them the same love (vibe) they normally receive from me… the “next step” was the contest.  Therefore, I have a healthy list of people who’s first point of entry was simply wanting to join the Pontoon Girl vibe.

 

Why the Tree and Ball Drop?  This allowed me to make it timely and fun.  It generated excitement.  It also showcased the vibe of ME which as we know when you focus on Tribeology you must become the vibe behind your tribe.

My advice.  Content and Consistency does not need to be boring or ordinary.  When you plan you can take your content to the next level, but always be ready to capture your leads to convert from “one and done” to Infinity!

So moving forward into 2019 and the Boat Show season, I have 100 new people to attract even more Pontoon Girls!

#doinginfinity

Happy 2019!

Friday: Try This!

Don’t wait for perfect, it will never arrive. You’ve got to take action and tweak later.

The reason I mention this today is because we watch what happens on the internet and often we see “perfect” examples that make us feel inferior to what reality really is.

I loved seeing this at the Sheraton in Florida.  They have a very busy convenience store area and nice retail displays.  You can tell it’s very busy because there are huge open spaces for large crowds.

But I turned around and on top of the counter was this…

img_0701

Two picture frames and waterbottles with the logo of the hotel.  They were just sitting there and if you wanted to purchase, you grabbed one.  That’s it.

Here’s the thing.  They could have waited for the perfect display time and place, but I think we can all learn from this SELL display.

Crowds are coming and going all the time… so whether you have an “in person” business or an “online” business… get out there and SELL or capture leads.  Just start. You can fix it next week.   Just don’t wait for “it” to be perfect.

Try This!
