Top 10 Tribe Essentials For Blog Syndication

Blog Syndication(image credit to jscreationzs)

Are you in a social tribe and getting your blog posts syndicated? If not, you’re probably missing out! (and right now, we are the latter)

From automated systems to close nit exclusive tribes, getting your blog posts and content syndicated through a social tribe seems to be the way to go. But do your blog comments end up lacking authenticity in the process?

On episode #3 of thatMLMbeat.TV I questioned whether Tribe Syndication is a killer of great content with too much automation going on.

Although we’ve always been a supporter of multiple tribes, I personally haven’t participated actively in any on a continues basis.

Being on a mission to return back to my blogging roots and in need of a great tribe, I asked a few of the top tribe leaders on Facebook what they feel the essential elements are that makes a Tribe Rock.

Here’s the response I got:

Kary RogneyBe giving of your time and energy. Listen to what people need and want. And make daily and consistent actions a priority…. Tribes are about people. If you put others first and grow your network, when you look back after a year you’ll be blown away by the success you’ll possess. 🙂

Gavin MountfordHave a direction and vision for the Tribe, have strong, powerful values for the tribe, work closely with people and remember that those people are real people with real problems, worries, challenges and aspirations.

Do NOT treat people as just a number. As Kary said, put other people first and not yourself. You are doing it for the people.

Ken PickardSurround yourself with like minded people. People who share your vision and values and goals. A good tribe is made of of leaders who understand that everyone has something to offer and its members work well on their own but even better in a group. It’s the epitome of a mastermind group.

Heather StephensLeadership that is focused on empowering others to stretch their comfort zones. Giving a sense of ownership and exclusivity to the members of the community. Praising the action takers who are making progress, implementing what they’re learning and making the community a better place.

Create an environment that encourages everyone to as questions or offer constructive feedback on how each of us can improve our marketing. Be flexible in adjusting the tribe rules, procedures, etc. as the group grows and needs arise. Don’t try to please everyone. Each community is going to have it’s own flavor and that is a good thing!

Great feedback! To sum it up and keep it simple, here’s the top 10 tribe essentials for blog syndication:

  • Listen
  • Consistency
  • Action
  • Values
  • Vision
  • Community
  • Leadership
  • Mastermind
  • Empowering
  • Diversify

Are there any essential elements to a tribe that you feel we should add? What value do you get the most out of your tribe and more importantly, what value do you contribute?

[Showcase] Great Member Blogs And How You Can Create The Same

Whether you use thatMLMbeat to simply syndicate your existing MLM Blog or if your primary blog is hosted here with us, either scenario is a representation of YOU and your personal brand.

Are your first impressions impressive or do they scare your potential business partners away?

Most importantly, is there something for your blog visitors to do once they have read your post or seen your video? Can they connect with you on Twitter or opt in to your mailing list?

Adding your blog to thatMLMbeat is a great easy way to build links, get more traffic and expand your readership to your personal blog, but what happens if they never get there?

If you post an article in a article directory, you have a resource box. If you create a Squidoo lens or a Hubpage, you might do the same or make sure that you have a link back to your Network Marketing blog or sales page.

We need to make sure that you do the same here on ‘the beat’.

So to help you along, I’ve put together a short case study of a few great member blogs who have added some really cool customization features which are really easy to do.

Remember, you only have to do it once.

There are more than 80 Free themes and a further 10 or 20 Premium themes with our PRO Membership.

Too many to choose from?

Sue Waters was kind enough to break them down into a easy to understand format to make it easy to choose which one will work best for you.

Go here to checkout the 100 blog themes review.

These should give you a few great ideas and inspiration.

Here are the featured member blogs:

John Counsel ==> http://johncounsel.thatmlmbeat.com

Melanie Milletics ==> http://melaniemilletics.thatmlmbeat.com/

Cassie Strom ==> http://cassiestrom.thatmlmbeat.com

Marc Menninger ==> http://healthnetworkmarketing.thatmlmbeat.com/

Dave Kotecki ==> http://davekotecki.thatmlmbeat.com

Emma Tiebens ==> http://therelationalmarketer.thatmlmbeat.com/

Then, as referred to as extreme in the video, is the Tribe Mastermind Formula blog.

The Tribe Mastermind Formula blog is a custom group blog for Kary Rogney, Eric Goldstein, Mike Feil and team members. The group / tribe blog allows multiple MLM Business partners or team members to contribute to one blog, share stories, host events for training and mastermind.

Better yet, you can attach your own public or private group and forum and import multiple tweets and RSS feeds to the blog for content syndication.

This is a custom feature that you will see a lot more of on thatMLMBeat in the next coming months.

If you would like to know more information about getting something similar setup for your team or business partners then get in touch with me.

Lastly, if you are in need of a great blog header for your personal or thatMLMbeat blog, order one from Attila. He will design it for free and you will only need to pay once or if you decide to keep it.

I have not met anyone to date that hasn’t been blown away by his attention grabbing graphics.

Questions are most welcome as always in the comment section. Cheers! 🙂
