If you are not currently in a tribe, you are missing out on one of the hottest trends on the internet right now! What in the world am I talking about? Well, Webster's Online Dictionary (www.merriam-webster.com) defines "tribe" as a social group comprising of persons or groups having a common character, occupation, or interest. Well, the cyber tribes of today are no different. A cyber tribe is simply a group of cyber friends that create a social network to help each other find success. Not unlike the nomadic tribes of the past, we stick together with common causes and offer our support from one web site to the next.
The defining qualities that link these like-minded individual tribe members are endless. A wide range of interests or traits like online groups, philosophy, or even experience can link their association. Tribes can be so powerful that it sways public opinion and even moves people into action. The most affluent tribes can take a message, and broadcast it on social mediums in a matter of minutes. The viral process takes hold, when other tribes start syndicating that message! As you can see, the opportunity to plaster your message everywhere is endless.
This is so huge! Anyone who has ever had the challenge of getting their website or blog online knows that the biggest challenges they will face is driving traffic to the site and also getting the search engines to notice them. A tribe takes care of both of these situations with the greatest of ease. The members of the tribe drive traffic to your site by syndicating your content all over the social media sites and everywhere else they go. The rest of the members return the favor and before you know it, you are being seen all over the place. The whole tribe concept is built on helping one another find success.
Does this sound like something you would be interested in? Well, you might be asking yourself where you can find one of these wonderful groups. There are a couple of ways to go about getting involved in a tribe. You can try to find one that is already established to join, or hey, step out there and start your own. You can search the social sites for people with your same interests and form your own group. You can start with a small group of 5 or 6, and then grow it bigger as you go.
After you have your tribe put together, it is now time for the real magic to start - syndication! What this means, is you read each members content, comment on their blog, share it on all the social media sites, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn and beyond. If your group has grown to 10 or more, it will be virtually impossible to get to syndicate that many people in one week, so you will always want to break into mini tribes. Set up your schedule for the minitribes, consisting of 5 or 6, and then rotate them on a monthly basis, so everyone has the same opportunity to be syndicated by the whole group eventually.
Even though having mini tribes may help with the workload problem, it is still each person's responsibility to engage in the process. Everyone has to have accountability to his or her group or it won't work. Each and every person has to dedicate themselves to the process of showing up and participating every week. In fact, I would strongly suggest having some rules in place for habitual no-shows that everyone agrees upon from the beginning.
If you are fortunate enough to be a part of a wonderful tribe, make sure to take full advantage of it! It is a very powerful tool, especially if you need traffic to your website or blog. You will soon see that traffic and be recognized by all the search engines as well.
