“Know the difference between being different & special.”

Friday: Big Money Small Change

 

I love when I check my feeds in Facebook or Instagram and find amazing posts to share with you!

Since we’re always looking for new ways to increase our money this might be a great idea for you.  Maybe not exactly like it, but if you grasp the spirit you’ll be rocking it!

This post is from a baton twirling group.  Remember, I competed fro 17 years so it’s fun to still follow teams and see how the sport evolves… one evolution is the introduction of social media on the business side.

There’s something in baton twirling called a 1-turn.  It’s when you toss the baton in the air and while it’s out of your hand, you turn around once and catch the baton.  You can do a 2-turn… which is two spins.  3-turn… 4-turn… etc.  YES, the very good competitors get up to 9ish, it’s pretty incredible.

BUT you have to start somewhere and that somewhere is the 1-turn. It’s a milestone. Honestly, it’s the first “real” trick that separates the new students from those on their way to competition levels.

SO, back to the post.  This girl was at practice and caught her 1-turn!  Look at how they celebrated.  The studio has a chalkboard and wrote the milestone on it for the girl to stand in front of the studio logo on the wall!

The caption said “she joined the 1-turn club”

This is a pretty exciting way to showcase your product (lessons) as a brand.  LOOK AT THIS… it’s tribe building.  You celebrate your student’s success and share with your online family so they too can celebrate!  It motivates the girl who achieved the milestone, shows your teaching success, and can create a shareable moment.

And it’s an Infinity promotion. You erase the chalk board and wait for the next milestone… the wall is a great decor item that serves double duty.

This is a “very big money small change” item.

How can you do this?   Use creativity –  like our quote says… make it special.

For me… We have a marina… We could do this by celebrating “my first boat ride” or “my first visit to Lake Minnetonka” create a certificate, award to the customer, and take a photo in front of our sign and post online!

Done consistently, it’s a fantastic content creator!

So let’s see… of our 5 C’s we have…

  1. Character (Subject Matter Expert) – YEP, success at teaching.
  2. Content – YEP – it’s a content generator
  3. Consistency – YEP – it’s going to happen again…
  4. Customer – YEP – the student is celebrated
  5. Cash – it likely will build excitement for others to want to join.

This is a home run for Tribeology!

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 #555 – The Important Reason Why You Need to Create Confidence to Build Confidence!

“The man who has confidence in himself gains the confidence of others.” Hasidic Proverb

Monday:  Subject Matter Expert

I picked today’s quote to help us all understand the important reason behind WHY we need to position ourselves as Subject Matter Experts.

Confidence.

Confidence is a simple word that is terribly complex.  We want to appear confident but at the same time not so confident that we are arrogant.  However, there is the danger of underselling our accomplishments in an effort to humble that creates a compeetitive disadvantage.

That’s why today’s inspiration is fantastic.

Use it as a tool to inspire confidence in your ability to inspire confidence!  (I couldn’t resist)

The first C of the Infinity Marketing Machine is “C”redibility.  It its our ability to create social proof with our tribe. We position ourselves as experts so that it builds the fundamental “trust” of know, like, and trust that is vital to bonding a tribe to you.

BUT… we know this.  We know that we should position ourselves as Subject Matter Experts.   We know that we should write a blog and “beef up” our About Me pages.  We know that we should share our knowledge… however, it’s uncomfortable OR seems like a time waster because we think, “who wants to know about me???”

It’s not about what you think, it’s about what your potential customers and potential future tribe thinks… they have ZERO confidence in you if you don’t tell them.

SO TELL THEM.

Spend the time to build the confidence that they need in you, and in turn you’ll find confidence in yourself.  And when you have confidence in yourself, others will have confidence in you… it’s like a big infinity loop.

ProfitCenterCoach.com – Day 33 – If You Are Going to Be Anything… Be Consistent.

“Without commitment you will never start, more importantly, without consistency, you will never Finish.” – Denzel Washington

Yesterday was fun, we had a nice conversation about how to treat your followers as a group and at the same time treat them as individuals.

Well today we’re looking at the word “treat”. How do you treat them?

Treating is not just the info you provide to your followers.  That’s super important, but it’s how you provide it.

Have you ever had a friend that says they’ll call… and they don’t?  Frustrating, right?

How about if you went out on a date… it was fun.  Then the next day you’re asked out again… maybe some flowers arrive… you go out again… then nothing.  No phone call, no text… tick tock tick tock – NOTHING!

How do you feel?

Well… how are you “treating” your followers?  Remember you are the vibe behind your tribe.  If your vibe is fun or inspirational… it might also be inconsistent or sporadic.

You don’t want to be the person that disappears on your followers!  You need to maintain a consistent schedule.  This is super important to the success of your Infinity Marketing Machine.

Message is one aspect, but your reliability in creating the message is the other.  Be consistent and don’t ditch your followers!

Tomorrow… we’re going to chat about that message!  Come back!

Episode #389 – Be A (Blank) Leader

“Bad leaders care about who is right… good leaders care about what is right” SSinek

Good business create good memories, bad businesses create bad memories… so the word memories has a unique position in our language.  It just exists, and only by the word before it, “good or bad” does it have meaning.

Well…  that was kind of deep. Haha

I guess as you’re looking for motivation – realize you are a leader.  Even if it’s just you in your business, you are the leader of your tribe.  The very people that have exchanged cash for your product/service believe in you.  I mean, think about it, they gave you money!

The reason they gave you money is because they trusted you.  So the best thing you can do for them is provide leadership! Now just like memories… leadership is a neutral word.  Until you pick “good or bad” to go ahead of it… it’s pretty blah.

Your tribe deserves a good leader! This is a person that will care about what is right for the group.  You want to make sure you are providing great information they care about.  You can market your products and services to this group, but your goal is to build a bond.  Remember this!  A good leader provides information and products that the group desires, a bad leader just “sells” without regard to sharing information the tribe needs.

Today… focus on being a good leader for your tribe!
