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 #577 – The Reason You Don’t Want People to Open Your Email

Quote: “If we all did the things we are capable of doing we would literally astound ourselves.” Thomas Edison

Friday: Big Money Small Change

 

Do you have the best intentions, but can’t find the time?  It’s like when you have an amazing idea, you think it will be great, but then “poof” the time passes.

For example, I have a brilliant idea for the Christmas holiday shopping season and next thing you know, it’s December 23rd…

OR

You want to do a welcome to summer event, and the ice doesn’t go off the lake till early May (not that I’m still bitter about that happening last year)

Here’s the deal.  You can make most things happen.  But you need a plan.  And that starts with old fashion paper and a pen.  Just brainstorm the ideas you want and the results you hope to achieve.  (the results on paper should be the motivator you need to get going)

I love using this type of plan/reward get going style when I think of my email list and the creation of content.  Not content you create on a consistent basis.  Special content… for example my booklet, The 5 C’s of the Infinity Marketing Machine.  Content that is designed to attract people to take action.

SO… using the plan/reward/ get going style… this type of booklet has a reward of growing an email list of people I’m trying to attract.  It’s hard work, but worth it when it’s finished!

NOW, here’s our “Big Money Small Idea” I got as an email from Pillsbury.

They sent out an email “Get your free gift” – it’s a download recipe cookbook.  They personalize the email and even include the day I joined their list.

Why would you want to send an email like this?

You already have someone on your list… what’s the point?

img_7348.png

You will gain engagement.  This is a big deal.

More important is the result.  You can get rid of people with dead emails or that do not engage… emails do cost money.  If you are sending out several thousand emails that are not opened, you are being charged.

SO… you might want to create a neat download and send it out to your list – you’ll find out who is engaged and ready to receive your information, build your tribe!  HOWEVER, it is also a fantastic way to clean up your list and save money!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #558 – Nerd Party!

Quote: “Possibilities do not add up. They multiply!”

Thursday: Infinity Customer

The fourth “C” of the Infinity Marketing Machine is Customer, more specifically Infinity Customer. This is a person that joins your tribe and stays.  They are very loyal and purchase items “over and over and over”.  We like Infinity Customers.

Now… the thing to keep in mind is this… Your Infinity Customer can leave at any time, so don’t neglect your relationship.

It’s important that the information you provide is useful… but the other thing that is important is that you provide items they want to buy!

I was looking on Pinterest a couple days ago and came across this!

Can you see why this is important for us to study?

This is an Infinity Product!  Remember, the infinity product is one that can be replicated over and over.  But I really like this because it’s niche based.  If you had a business of nerds as your base.  This is your product!

T Shirts for science loving introverts that apparently don’t like pants.  haha

But look at the significance.  It’s a gray shirt with different words under a common theme that is niche based.

YES.

Learn from this product – because as you want to make money and seek that $1/per month per person on your email list, the infinity product is critical to your success.

Next Step… sit down and brainstorm your niche and the type of product that is desired from your group, then provide it!  If needed, throw them a nerd party!

“To become distinguished in your industry, you have to constantly manage, master, & maximize your time.” OAnyado

Tuesday: Content & Consistency

MERRY CHRISTMAS!  Do you like the “red and green” header graphic for today?  I am a little in the Christmas Spirit.

Today we’re creating content and I wanted to show you want I did with one simple tree… yes a tree.

I’ve been able to create about 20 different pieces of content from one Christmas Tree and it is something everyone can do… if you plan.  Now, by plan I don’t mean several hours. Infact it took about one hour to assemble the tree and take photos.  The videos took a little longer…

However, the ability to turn the cute little tree into a special event is something I wanted to share with you!

Above you’ll see my “Pontoon Girl Mini-Tree”! Pontoon Girl is my brand devoted to the “Pontoon Girl Lifestyle”.  So what I did for fun was created a special “Pontoon Girl Tree”!

A couple weeks ago I wrote an article in my weekly newsletter that talked about creating a mini-tree to bring the nautical lifestyle inside your home if you’re not lucky enough to boat year round.  That’s why I created this cute little tree.

Why am I mentioning it here?

Well… this has turned into a “special event” – it’s a special event that have utilized to create many magic moments of content.

Here are some of the in-progress photos….

Next I took a bunch of the photos and created a slide/movie presentation… I’ve posted on YouTube.  And this allows me to use in emails AND on Facebook.

Then for fun I created other boomerang videos, too!

 

Finally… I have bundled this cute little tree with my PontoonGirlContest.com which is a drawing for a free Pontoon Girl Blanket.   THIS is my ultimate goal.  I had fun creating the tree.  It was based on a topic that is already familiar with my tribe… but really, getting new people in to my tribe involves the contest.

Look I used the tree as the backdrop for the blanket!

You can do this “reuse content” strategy, too!

Sometime stop and think… when you take one photo…. can you multiply it into a special event type of content generating machine?

It’s been very fun… a little hectic seeing as how it’s Christmas… but well worth it!

BTW:  One final tip… I have purchased a new domain PontoonGirlContest.com for a specific reason.  Longevity.  Whether you read this in 2018 or several months, or years from now the domain can be valid.  I’m creating the site with a contest page that can update with a new contest versus creating a page and using bit.ly it’s a personal preference. However, if you look “long game” this is a great strategy.

Alright back to cookies and family.

Merry Christmas!

ProfitCenterCoach.com – Episode 492 – Would You SnapChat with a 90 Year Old?

“Communication is at the heart of e-commerce and community.” -Meg Whitman

Thursday: Infinity Customers

At our marina we have six generations of customers.  Now, we’ve only been in business 58 years so how can we have six generations of customers?

It means we have customers from age 8 to 90+!  Sometimes we have all of them on the same day.  We have our Greatest Generation, Lost Generation, Baby Boomers, Gen X, Millennial, iGen, and the unnamed newest generation… oops, guess that might be 7 generations!

Sometimes our youngest customers come in on a jet ski and buy candy while our slip or rental customers are much much older.

Why does this matter?

Here’s why… I’m in my 40s and the big thing growing up was talking on the phone.  For about the last 10 years texting has been the big deal.  Watch any teen/20 something and you’ll see just how fast they can text… some can still do it on a “flip phone”!  However, these same people have really really bad phone skills.

Don’t even try to talk to some of them in person… it is like talking to a space alien!

Back to my previous question, why does this matter?

It matters because to create an Infinity Customer you must be able to communicate.  This is why today’s inspiration is so awesome, and simple.  Communication is the heart of ecommerce AND community.  It’s not coding… it’s communication.  It’s not one or the other… it’s both.  To build your community and build your ecommerce you must COMMUNICATE.

Now… to communicate with 6 (or 7) generations you need to figure out how they communicate.  It would be rare for a 90 year old to use Snap Chat, but it would also be rare to find a teenager who prefers to receive a phone call.

I’m mentioning this because earlier this week one of my crew members was trying to contact area businesses.  She visited their websites.  She found 5 that did not list an email address.

My pet peeve used to be when you visited a business website and found an email with a  gmail or yahoo domain.  It’s so easy to get a custom domain for email that it’s a “must do” – – but now it appears to be a trend to fail to list an email at all on a website!

Remember today’s inspiration… communication is key… COMMUNICATION.

Be willing to communicate how your customer wants to communicate, not how you want to.  This is such a fundamental building block that I almost didn’t use it as a blog topic, but then I thought, “if 5 of 20 on our list did not have an email on their website… maybe my tribe needs a friendly reminder, too”

Include an email on your website. Its a polite courtesy for your customers, soon to be tribe members.
