3 Master Tribe Strategies to Reach Multiplication

Ten-hut!

Triberr is an invite only community of bloggers. Every time you publish a new post, everyone in your tribe automagicly tweets it to their followers.

Since this is something you’re doing anyway, Triberr simply automates it for you; which gives you more time for real engagement with your blogging and tweeting friends.

Once you’ve been invited into a tribe, you are able to create up to 3 tribes of your own. So the question is…

What strategy should you use when creating your 3 tribes?

1. Same Niche Strategy

I have several blogs in niches that have nothing to do with each other.

I have a biz blog, dog blog, and a motorcycle blog.

Both my biz and dog blog are kicking ass, but my motorcycle blog is sucking wind. Why?

I think the main reason is that I failed to develop relationships with other bloggers in the motorcycle niche.

Your primary strategy could be to create 3 tribes based on 3 separate niches. Clear cut. Makes perfect sense to separate them out. Moving on.

2. Low, Mid, High Strategy

You could create 3 tribes based on the tribesmen’s relative position as compared to you.

For example. In the Low Tribe, you pull in great people who are up and coming.

They might have a small blog, low Klout score (does anyone really give a fuck about Klout?), low number of followers, and so on. But they rock, none the less. Why not help these guys break through?

Create and nurture them as bloggers and help them get their fair shake. It feels good, I promise.

With Mid Strategy, you are creating a tribe of equals. We can call this the Associative Tribe Strategy as well. Simply bring in your peers. Your friends. People who you know and trust. I think, that’s enough about that, moving on.

High Tribe Strategy (or Aspirational Tribe Strategy) is a great one.

This is the one where you shoot for the moon. You go and try to get the best, most ideal people into your tribe.

I implemented this strategy with the Jaffa Tribe. Which has Aaron Lee, Gini Dietrich, Danny Brown, Robert Dempsey, Kazia Mullin and Ana Hoffman.

If you don’t now who these people are, where the hell have you been?

3. Timeline Strategy

Simple. One tribe for people you’ve known for a long time and haven’t kept in touch with as much as you would like to. Bringing them into the same tribe is a great way of staying in touch and keeping an eye on what they do.

Second tribe for people who are in your current social circle of friends.

And third tribe for people you’ve just met and who look promising.

Can You Mix These Strategies?

Of course. No need to be so rigid and stick to one but I know some will. I think that will have more to do with your personality rather than any perceived benefit of going one way or the other.

Cool thing about Triberr is that now you can actually emphasize quality of the relationship AND reap the rewards.

Point of Note

Who the hell has the time to go and pursue Twitter followers one by one only to then ignore those same followers because you only have so much personal bandwidth? It’s insanity.

Instead, why not grow small communities which are cared for and then share your community with other bloggers who have the same type of community. Thats a win-win-win in my book.

You can maintain close ties with your small community of readers and through transfer of trust, share amazing content made by other bloggers with your community. These other amazing bloggers do the same for you…and Triberr ensures that it happens automagicly.

    Hey Dino

    Triberr sounds seriously badass – thanks for the invite, I’ve been maniacally busy. I’ll be jumping onboard at some stage today!

    I love the word ‘automatically’ by the way – very cool piece of wordsmithery!

    I keep looking in the mail for the Royal Wedding and Triberr invite……….damn postal service.

    I do have buttons on my site now; that was a big accomplishment for me………..

    I like the concept and yes, I will be there one day but I’m not Triberr ready yet; I don’t want to be dead wood or ‘what’s that smell’.

    Keep it up and I look forward to following the progress.

      Your Triberr invite is waiting for you for whenever you ready Bill :-)

        I hear you, I think I’m getting close………

      I thought we were friends and that you would tell me you need an invite :)

      • http://twitter.com/bdorman264 Bill Dorman

        We’re like best friends…………that’s why I’m not reaching out yet. If I understand the gist of this, the tribe will be sharing blogging posts. 1) I have a lame ass site and 2) I’m not sure if I’m blog ready to go into full time production. If I’m in I want to be ‘in’ and make sure I contribute.

        And no, I don’t have Hollywood White Teeth…………….

          I still don’t understand that teeth part over there :)

    Dino, awesome tips and ideas.

    I am a member of one tribe where the chief is Danny Brown. Do I need to say more? I think he is pulling me up as up and coming in this example, lol. Having Ingrid and Aaron in it just makes it the perfect tribe!

    I also created one just for my list (had an awesome idea by a friend about it :P ) and it is great cause I connected with several people on a better level and made a tribe exclusively for them. I was thinking along the lines – if they like me enough to subscribe to my newsletter, least I can do is thank them by some RTs :)

    • http://diyblogger.net/about Dino Dogan

      That is an awesome way to “give back” to people who have subscribed to your mailing list. Whoever came with that idea is a genius :-p

        for a small fee of $1.000.000 I will share him with you :)

  • http://www.itinerantentrepreneur.com/journal/ Robert Dempsey

    You are more strategic with Triberr than I am Dino that’s for damn sure. But after reading this post I determined who to invite into my “asskickery” tribe. Thanks for that, and of course inviting me in the first place.

  • http://dannybrown.me Danny Brown

    Just set up my third tribe, mate, solely for entrepreneurs. Very targeted members – looking forward to seeing how that gels. :)

    I have yet to decide my strategy. To be honest, I’m still very nervous about extending an invite to my tribe, as I still feel like I don;t really know many other bloggers that well-yet, and I know newbie low numbers make not exactly make exactly make an attractive prospect. A possible strategy for me might be to build a network of fairly newbie bloggers like myself, who are at all similar stage,and whose content compliments one another’s. That way we can help each, and share content that are respective readers care about. I love the idea of Triberr, it’s also a great way to share other quality “out of niche” content to your followers, and mix it up a bit.

    • http://diyblogger.net/about Dino Dogan

      I think thats a great strategy Stacey. Plus, once you have few members you can go for a bigger fish since the combined reach of few small bloggers is often greater than the reach of some bigger blogger.

        Omg, typo’s galore? In my haste to post,I became illiterate, a million apologies. Note to self ” must do better”, lol

        I’m working on building up relationships with potential tribe members on a daily basic, so hopefully I can start building up a great tribe soon

  • http://markharai.com Mark Harai

    Yo Dino –I like the focus on building effective small tribes… it makes much more sense than following or being connected to thousands of people who don’t know you exist.

    The numbers thing really jacks with people’s minds. It’s such a waste of time. If folks would simply focus on developing 50 to 100 meaningful strong relationships, they could be highly successful in just about any endeavor online.

    Cheers to you and Tiberr!

      Have you started yours?

      • http://markharai.com Mark Harai

        Ah… not quite yet… but will get to it this weekend… I’m probably a bit slower than most of your community with new platforms/ tech stuff. I’ll get it done though.

    I have only been a part of this for a few days now but I think that it is fantastic.

    Cool. For me, I think I will stick to the niche tribe strategy. I haven’t done much but I think I will keep the random names of my tribes because the are FANTASTIC.

    • http://diyblogger.net/about Dino Dogan

      You know how we got the names? We’re using World of Warcraft guild names to autogenerate tribe names :-) They have hundreds of thousands so its an inexhaustible source of awesome, quirky, weird names :-)
