Belonging to a Tribe for the purpose of doing syndication for each other’s content is currently the hottest and fastest growing trend. It’s a great way to grow your lists and following and the fastest way to get your content in cyberspace for people to see you.
If you recall from my previous post, a tribe is a group of individuals who share a common intersest and get together to discuss those interests. A tribe is connected to a leader, to one another and to an idea.
Well, a tribe syndication network, would then be a tribe of individuals who seek to syndicate each other’s content which allows for business growth much faster than if someone was going it alone.
I have a good friends who began doing this and the results were nothing short of amazing. Here’s what they do:
1) This Tribe meets once a week, there’s 5 of them, but your tribe can be bigger by a few if you want, for about an hour, maybe two, on Skype ( a worldwide free phone service).
2) They come prepared with the content they have posted to their blog during the week so when the group gets together, they are ready for syndication. If one doesn’t have any content ready, he still syndicates for the others, he just has nothing for the rest to syndicate, or they can resyndicate old stuff. Not having content ready doesn’t let them out of their commitment to syndicate for their tribe members.
3) They go around and pull up each others content. They tweet the content to their Twitter followers, they post the content to their Facebook page, they leave comments on blog posts, notes in Facebook and videos, they bookmark the content and mark it as a favorite.
4) During the week they will be sure to retweet each other’s tweets and they can count on each other for support.
As a result of this, they have all grown their lists and businesses.
If this makes sense to you, grab some of your friends that you network with, set a time each week to syndication and commit to following through.
