TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #612 – Facebook Down… Have We Achieved “When”?

Quote: “If not now then when”

Thursday: Infinity Customer

 

I just discovered something.  I’ve been trying to teach to a “system” or “process” called Tribeology.

That’s wrong.

I just discovered that Tribeology is actually a way of life.

Hear me out.

The reason I discovered this is due to one of the 4 online seminars I’m taking right now… the task was to write “my” story.  The reason I’m selling the thing I’m selling.

Well, I just chronicled my journey in formulating our Profit Center, the Boat Club.  It was a very slow growth process… until I implemented Tribeology.

Now here’s the secret, I didn’t know it was Tribeology at the time.  Looking back I can easily see it, but in the middle of it, I had no idea.

I thought I was just doing email marketing.

And I was.

But email marketing done at the same time you implement the 5 C’s and target your most loved customer will transform into Tribeology.

It’s not a process, this is a way of life.

The reason we struggle with content and having to “find something” to post is because we haven’t completely committed to the “way of life” that Tribeology requires.

Commit.

Utilize your marketing skills but Live Tribeology.  This is your vibe.  This is your tribe. This is your business.

Adopt this vibe throughout all aspects of your everyday transactions and it will become easy to post, enjoyable to communicate, and exciting to repeat.

and that brings me full circle to today’s quote…

Five Simple Words

“if not now then when”

Facebook was “down” today.  If your whole list and economic security has been built on their platform, today you did not make sales.  Today you are NOT in control.

Do you want to be dependent on Facebook or risk a Google smack?

Or do you want financial freedom by attracting an ideal customer, transforming from “one and done” to “Infinity”, and controlling your future by cultivating your private list as an asset of your business?

Commit.

IF NOT NOW THEN WHEN

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #611 – Teaching the Teacher

Quote: “If you can’t explain it to a 6 year old, you don’t understand it yourself.” AEinstein

Tuesday: Content and Consistency

 

Time for our Einstein moment!  🙂

So if you can’t dumb it down you’ve got a problem.  That means no matter what you are selling you’ve got to be able to explain the core essence of it in less than 20 seconds.  If you can’t do that, work on it.

Simplicity is key!

My favorite teacher from high school regularly stops by and makes sure things are going well at the boat yard.  He also works for us during the busy season.  The funny things is, had you told me that in high school, my reality would involve his friendship, I wouldn’t have believed it.  It’s funny how life works.

Well… he’s a marketing guru that does not have cable TV.

He refused to pay for cable insisting it was a fad (that’s a big of a joke, but he never could figure out why someone would pay for TV when you can get it free) – anyway… back to marketing.

As you know I’ve been taking about 4 online seminars to better my skills at this new way of marketing.  Today I showed my teacher a video. Since he doesn’t own cable TV you can imagine what his skills are at the Internet.  He doesn’t use it.

However, he understands marketing, money, and still coaches students.  So he’s willing to learn.  And that’s the important thing… it’s the reason for my topic.

You must be willing to continually learn and teach and do it with such simplicity that a 6 year old can understand.

Here’s why… the highly complex nature of how some squeeze pages, upsells, CPC, posts, and influencer marketing really boil down to product placements, ad placement, sales letters and contact cards.  It’s ALL the same just mixed with technology.

I had a fun conversation teaching my teacher.  I think I made his head spin… haha   And yes, I gave him homework!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 609 – Your Achilles Tendon Makes Me Passionate

Quote: “Expertise without passion is not always effective”

Monday: Subject Matter Expert

 

Have you ever watched a performance with an actor and thought, they’re a good actor but you didn’t feel any emotion watching the performance?

How about watching a football game and leaving with a “ho hum” type of feeling?

What about visiting a business, let’s say a car dealership, and you liked the car, but wern’t really excited to purchase… yet a week later you purchased from a competing car dealer?

The reason is passion.

All three scenarios had expertise but lacked passion.  You need to share you knowledge with passion to be remembered and to build trust with your tribe.  It’s the way you stand out.

About two years ago I hurt my Achilles tendon.  It is not easy to heal this type of injury.  Mostly it involves rest and stretching… mine is MUCH better.  But here’s the funny thing, I looked up online for a “cure” – I came across these two doctors who have coined them selves “the two most famous physical therapists on the internet” their video is good and it’s helped me HUGE.

OK

Here’s why I mention it.  You watch the video for a cure to your pain… but you TRUST them because they have passion for their topic.

Think about it… this is health information for an injury and yet, within about 30 seconds you trust them.  That’s remarkable.

Watch the beginning of the video, it’s a great example.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #608 – Marketing Does Not Have to Be Expensive!

Saturday: Try This!

What a fun day… I love finding real world ideas and sharing them here.  There’s just something rewarding about coming across a hot new tip when you least expect.

Speaking of least expecting it…

This is a photo of the bathroom at a hair salon… haha.   But seriously, it is.

When you think that “marketing” is just too expensive to engage in… or you’re worried that marketing costs too much.  Look at the photos.

They have a nice vanity with shelves.  I can imagine that it’s hard to fill a shelf in a bathroom because the nicer the “nick nacks” the higher the chance they walk away.

But you can’t leave a shelf empty – look what they did!

It’s an inexpensive acrylic frame with a special inside!

Your bathroom is valuable real estate for your marketing efforts.  Think about it… you have a captive audience that has the ability to take a little extra time to ponder your message.

Use this idea!  It’s simple.

Try This!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #607 – Show Success from Start to Finish

Quote: “That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well.” Abraham Lincoln

Friday: Big Money Small Change

 

I love days when we quote Abraham Lincoln.

Why?

Because it shows how timeless wisdom can be!  I’m using it to help explain the importance telling a story, telling your business success story!

This post needs no words.  Just look at it!

Congratulations to this woman, 30 lbs in six weeks. WOW!  Awesome for her…

But also, awesome to this fitness studio.  Not just for showing her a process to be successful in her transformation… but for sharing it in a simple way with their social feed.

Look, it doesn’t need words to say how she did it.  It’s super simple.

And, it’s super effective!

This is a classic transformation/before and after type success story. Think of a way you can do this!  If you are an orthodontist it’s a great visual process.  What about a before/after for house painting… we can do it at the marina for before/after on boat bottom cleaning.

This is such a small way to gain big results that we often over look it!

Business is designed to help other people by providing a product or service to better the life of someone else, therefore, business it’s self is a before/after.  So compile a list and utilize this tool.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #606 – Be Rewarding

Quote: “If the reward isn’t good enough it will be too easy to talk yourself out of it”

Thursday: Infinity Customer

 

Look what I got in the mail!  The new edition of the Vineyard Vines catalog.

The back page detailed their spring break offer.  There are three different gifts, a hat, bag, and beach towel that you can get for free with increasing purchase amounts.

Here’s what I love, the more you spend, you don’t give up one item, but you keep it and gain the next.

Now even cooler than this was the back of one of our tool supply company catalogs.  I opened it up shortly after soaking in my Vineyards Vines vibe… anyway – in the catalog it had an entire 8 page spread of rewards.  Things like coolers, radios, golf balls.  Things completely unrelated to the tools.

This is unique!

Imagine being the person responsible for ordering and you get to pick rewards based on dollars spent?!  This just seemed like a really cool idea.

I know there are stores that have loyalty programs online.

But in the real world I haven’t seen a company do this, but it’s a brilliant idea for building loyalty and to keep your customers coming back time after time!

So whether it’s an increasing scale for your shopping or a specific loyalty program that is ongoing, people love free stuff.  They love rewards and being rewarded.

The thing I really enjoyed about the tool company is that it was not company logo items, these were everyday items of value.

So give it a shot!  Look into loyalty programs… it must might be a great way to appreciate your customers.

TibeologyBlog.com – Episode 605 – Just Keep Going!

Quote: “The closer one gets to the top, the more one finds there is no ‘top’ ” NBarcus

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

The study of marketing has changed at a rapid pace lately.  The internet has turned things upside down and it’s a skill that once you think you understand, it all changes again.

Or does it?

Or quote today is to understand that once you get to the top you realize there is no top!  That’s a lot like marketing online and here’s why… the basics of “price, place, product, and promotion” are the same whether you’re a retail store or an online business.

However, the “how” twists a little different. That’s when you start on the path of story telling through words and images. It’s the relationship and constant contact with customers that come into play.

So when you get to the top, realize that your foundation stays the same, so as long as you have strong foundation you can simply keep going, learning, and succeeding… just like internet marketing.
