Build Your Tribe

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Seth Godin's and that I'm in his social network Triiibes. I have been a fairly active member of the relatively closed community, and through this community a great PDF has been collaboratively created. 

If you have any interest in social media or community building, you absolutely need to read this 75 page manifesto. It's easy to read, very concise, and full of useful content that you can put to good use. Whether you are building a community around a hobby like magic tricks, or around a passion like sports, this is a must read. 

Here are some of its contents:
  • Top questions answered about social media, communities, and movements. 
  • The art of good story telling. 
  • Motivations for joining groups. 
  • Can you make a living off of these communities? 
  • What successful leaders look like and who the top ones are. 
  • How to tighten a community and get others to join. 
  • Who plays what roles? 
  • What sizes are ideal? 
  • Can a tribe change the world? 
If you have already read the brilliant document I look forward to hearing what you think, and if you have yet to read it, again here it is

You are free to read, print, and share it through whatever means you desire. Knowledge is power, and sharing is caring so reach out to those who want to hear from you with this great, free pre-christmas gift.
