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 Rogney – Be 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 Mountford – Have 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 Pickard – Surround 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 Stephens – Leadership 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:
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?
