TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 779 – Stop Subtracting Personality… Add Details to Posts to Multiply Results Without Dividing Your Time!

Quote: “A new day and another opportunity”

Friday: Big Money Small Change

How clever are you?  Well… here’s a great post that really shows some creativity.  It’s the type of post we regularly talk about – something that gabs attention and suits a purpose without saying “here’s the purpose of this post”

Look at it!

This is a brain teaser that each student was given to learn more about their new teacher…  and the teacher shared it on her Instagram.  The cool thing is this… if you were a teacher it’s a great “pop up” on your feed that will make you think… “I can do this” – but if you’re not a teacher – it’s fun to figure out how many siblings she has, how many miles she’s biked… etc.

You really learn about the teacher without reading, “I am 27 years old and enjoyed 12th grade…. blah blah blah”

Excellent teacher.

Posts should engage and draw you in… just like this!  Don’t be afraid to get creative.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 772 – Build Your Tribe By Selling Them Stuff

Quote: “Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant”

Friday: Big Money Small Change

 

There’s something about a vibe…  look at this post!  It’s a totally cute product and as you flip through your feed, you may zoom past it — but stop.  Let’s focus on what we can learn from the post.

This dance studio has a store.  They sell more than dance essentials, like shoes or leotards.  Their style is trendy.  And they love pink!  Well pink is actually the branded color of the studio.

We learned all of this from their post.

AND that’s not even the main point of their post… the post is to let you know that this super cute product that was picked out just for their tribe has arrived and to hurry!

When you’re looking for a great post idea – look beyond a typical product post — use the post as your opportunity to support and strengthen your bond with your tribe.

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!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 766 – How to Make Money by Embracing Your Inner Grouchy Kitty.

Quote: “I wish I was a unicorn — so I can stab idiots with my horn”

Friday: Big Money Small Change

If you love this quote… follow my blog!

WHY?

Because today is “Big Money Small Change Day” and I’m here to prove a point. (get it)

Share your personality!

The one thing that’s the hardest point (haha) to get across to people when they start their Infinity Marketing Machine… especially when they are “old school” meaning they grew up loving anything John Hughes… the hardest point in your writing is to share your personality.

I’m not kidding (well I am, see… I’m a smart alec)

But my point (again.. haha) is that you need to share your personality through your posts and writing. This is difficult for those that did graduate in the 80s because we were taught to write within strict parameters.

In fact, we did not have fun.

I like to write with… (dot dot dots) and USE ALL CAPS – I even make up words.  But this is my personality.  If you love the 80s, and have zany personality with puns, etc… then follow me — because this is your tribe.

NOW… outside of actually telling you to follow me — you should feel comfortable reading someone else’s post and think… yeah that person is pretty cool… I think I “get” them.

And this is what spurred my magical post…

GET IT?  There are LOTS of yoga studios.  Depending on your style, you could be earthy, trendy, retro, intense, peaceful… but there is a studio for you that matches you.

I was flipping through my posts on Instagram and this video of this ornery “cat” caught my attention.  The “kitty” looks angry… then it strikes at the camera.

The caption is perfect.

IF you “get” this post – you want to do yoga with her… You want to be a part of her tribe.  I don’t do yoga but I totally understand her!

This is the easiest way to attract your tribe — be yourself in your posts, show your personality and if you’re a grouchy kitty — embrace it!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 752 – Start Now – Don’t Put It Off!

Quote: “Don’t rush into procrastinating.”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

OK – I’m in a sneaky silly mood with today’s post.

But what ever you do… don’t rush into procrastinating!  You’ve got to ease into it.

And this topic makes me wonder if your goal is procrastination… can you actually achieve it?  I mean the act of procrastinating is to put stuff off so if the goal is to put it off, can you actually put it off?

OK wait! I’ve got a point.

I’ve been listening to an amazing book.  It’s about achieving any goal you have and creating miracles in your life… real, authentic, miracles.

So how the heck do you do that — when this author has twisted my thinking.  The person you become by creating the goal and moving toward achieving the goal is as important maybe even more important that actually achieving the goal.

The author also goes on to say that you must focus your energy on ONE goal. Which is much like my most recent post about focusing on “one kick” – when you spread yourself too thin you never achieve any goal – you just get “stuff” done.

So back to the original quote… can you actually achieve the goal of procrastination?  Yeah, I’m not sure… but if you’re living your best life and procrastinating is the goal, just work toward it, be the best procrastinator you can be and whether you actually achieve procrastination you’ll transform your life into being a good procrastinator, start now!  Don’t put it off.

hahaha

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 749 – Coffee and T Shirts? YES!

Saturday: Try This!

 

I love profit centers.

When I walked into the grocery store the other day I noticed something different at the Coffee store.  Yes, there’s a full coffee shop inside the grocery store – this itself could qualify as a profit center… but if it’s a leased space… then the rent is a profit center

but anyway…

Look at this — just to the left of the main area you order coffee is a neat little bin with T shirts!  Titled ‘Bou Fashions.

What a great tribe building idea!

Get people to buy your vibe and wear it… when what you actually do is sell coffee.

How can you do this at your store, whether online or in person… is there a way to add a completely different type of product, like T-shirts are to coffee, and grow your tribe?

BTW… T shirts are hot. So honestly, adding apparel with your brand just might work at your business, too!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 748 – One Good Reason that Everyone Gets A Trophy…

Quote:  “A goal should scare you a little & excite you lot.” Joe Vitale

Friday:  Big Money Small Change

 

There’s something to the “everyone gets a trophy” philosophy.  People just love to be recognized.  Now the fall out might be that there are so many trophies that they begin to mean nothing.

However…

Sometimes the surprise recognition means a lot!

Earlier I was scrolling through my Instagram and came across this post…

 

These two girls are national champions in their own right.  But those “pieces of paper” mean more than the trophies that are waist high!  The pieces of paper show they participated in their world championships.

YES.

They did not make it on the medal stand, but they did get the recognition of participation.

Sometimes that means a whole bunch!  Those certificates will be framed and displayed right along side some very impressive medals in their rooms at home.

Well… how can you utilize this type of marketing?

Is there anything you do that is a “first” for customers… I like to think at our marina it might be a “first boat ride” or a “first visit to Lake Minnetonka” or maybe a special anniversary or birthday…

It’s a simple paper certificate – but the meaning behind it is picture worthy and even postable!  It’s inexpensive but can have a very big impact.

Figure out how YOU can do this at your business… I mean if Disney World hands out “first visit” buttons – it must be a good idea… right?
