My friends were gracious enough to allow me to participate in a Tribe Syndication Power Hour (which actually turned into 2.5 hours). I got fully involved with the syndication with them and took away great insight as to what this looks and feels like.
From the one 2.5 hour session, I added a few new friends to my Facebook and received a couple emails for a more intimate connection. I can see how this would benefit my business partners and am excited to introduce them to this way of marketing.
So, here’s what went down. There were 4 tribe members and myself. Two were absent this day. We connected on Skype and started on each others’ blog. We commented on recent posts, tweeted the content to our respective lists and bookmarked it. During this process, it was discovered that a video which had been posted on one of the tribe member’s blogs was not displaying. Turns out an update to a plug-in took it out. It needs to get fixed. Right away I saw the value of having tribe members watch your back, look after each other.
Next we all headed over to each other’s Facebook pages. We added content from each other’s blogs to our Facebook pages. This is validation of each other to our lists.
Following that, we visited each others’ video channel and left comments, rated and favorited videos.
During all of this time, there was chit chat about something someone learned during the week, a business idea shared, friendships enriched and you can feel the strength of this tribe in terms of what’s possible for their businesses.
I’m convinced this is a strategy totally worth pursuing for any groups of business partners with like minds wanting to build their lists and develop relationships with that list. The value of the content being syndicated is great and it allows the individual to get 5 times the exposure by leveraging the other tribe members. It’s a win-win for all.
Please share your feelings and experiences about tribal syndication…. I so appreciate your feedback, comments, ideas and value you bring to my community here.
