The Power Of Tribes

When it comes to “Tribes” there is a certain power being in one.

According to Wikipedia, a “tribe” is a “clan-based social structure”.
It became popularized as an loin community structure by Seth Godin.  In his book “Tribes,” Godin explains that “A tribe is any group of people, large or small, who are connected to one another, a leader, and an idea. ….[and he further describes how] the Internet has eliminated the barriers of geography, cost and time.  All those blogs and social networking sites are helping existing tribes to get bigger.”

I have participated in several tribes over the past few years. 

I connect with other bloggers and share content and feedback (“syndicate”) with them.  Tribe members share the same mindset of exchanging ideas and helping one another by commenting, and promoting each other’s blogs by virtue of social bookmarking and sharing.

What I love most about tribes is that not only do they help rank my site on Google, but they offer me a forum for learning from other people.  While we share a general effort to cross-syndicate, we have varying strengths and focus, and we represent a wide variety of niches, or special areas of interest.  

The best thing about my tribal involvement has been meeting so many awesome, devoted people.  We often become friends in addition to masterminding together, critiquing each others work, and even collaborating in Joint Ventures.

The very reason I chose “donnamerrilltribe.com” as my blog title, is that I have crafted it as a sort of mini-tribe for all my readers.  

There is a lot of power in that title for several reasons.  First, I use my name, which is important for branding.  But more important, I join it to the concept of “tribe” as an invitation for readers to join me and my online journey.

In fact, I consider anyone who follows my blog or any of my social sites to be part of my team…part of my tribe.  We meet and connect.  The very word… “tribe”… I feel, brings us all together.

We are all team players out here.  

I welcome you to jump into action and consider yourself part of my community.  I love to help people and encourage them to stay on point with their passions and goals, and to never compromise them or surrender their zeal.

If you have any questions about joining a Tribe, I can recommend some of the ones I belong to.  Just ask me in the comment box.

Let me know what you think, It is really important to me.

Blessings,
Donna

    So very true, Donna. that tribal aspect of our world is such a profound part of our true nature. We can no more live alone in a vacuum than we can breathe in that same vacuum. The power of a tribe, especially one in which we are volunteer participants is incredible. It is like the energy we put into the tribe comes back to us multiplied tenfold at least.

    I like the name of your site and really enjoy being a part of your tribe. 🙂

    A blog really is much like its own community… or tribe. You have people who come and go, and those who stay and continue the conversation… and ultimately grow with you.

    I hear about tribes a lot these days but isn’t it just another word for a community of like minded people ? Or rather it’s a marketing term that has been used to describe a community of like minded people. And to that aim what is the underlying reasons for coining this new term ?

    Tribes of old usually imposed some kind of ritual on a person to brand or indoctrinate him/her…I guess gangs in modern times do the same thing….what kind of ritual do we go through these days to “join” a tribe as per your definition ? The ritual was the bond and kind of gave it’s membership a connection and identity. And how can you be a member of 5 separate tribes ? If a tribe is connected by the leader what is the difference between it and a cult ?

      First of all, tribes are not “connected to a leader”. They are essentially groups of people working in unison to syndicate each others content, be it articles, blog posts, videos etc.

      The term tribe as a blogging community was coined by Seth Godin. I suggest you look at his seminal book on the topic, called appropriately “Tribes”.

      Seth is one of the masterminds of social media mechanics and meaning. His communal blog, Squidoo, was created to emulate this tribal concept.

      As far as the ritualistic aspects of traditional tribes, the metaphor may be running thin at that point. The tribal aspects that Seth Godin highlighted were those of hunting, gathering, and providing in unison. I suppose you might say that the ritualistic underpinnings involve the rhythm of syndication, mutual assistance and masterminding.

    Donna,

    thanks for sharing with others the power of Tribes! Lots of people still don’t know about it.

    So what are the tribes that you belong to and is there one or two that you would recommend the highest?

    Thanks so much for all you do!

This post in particular comes right in time for my business as I just launched my branded blog. So you know I’m taking you up on the offer, right? What tribes do you recommend? Thanks again for this great post I’m definitely a new fan!

      Hey Anthony, I put tribe at the end of my name because it takes a bunch of people to connect with when you are the Ceo, and chief bottle washer of your business.

      Tribing to me has been a wonderful experience and when I got into the internet business Seth’s book gave me an AHA moment.

      I don’t know where I would be without my tribe-mates. They are people I can reach out to if I have a problem with something. They are my teachers and my students.

      The connections I have made with people all over the globe has been the most wonderful experience in my life.

    The word in itself is descriptive to mean group of people. I like how you have shared your blog Donna in opening it up to others to inspire them and encourage people to be involved as much as they want.

    I enjoy being part of several tribes and you can learn so much from others. Best part, all the connections have been turning into wonderful business friends and people that I know I could actually reach out to if I needed help or just to ask for ideas and suggestions.

    So much appreciate your positive approach with people Donna – keep up your wonderful positive leadership!

      I am honored by your kind words Lynn. Recently there was a man in one of the tribes I am in that had a medical problem with his child. He came onto Facebook and asked for support. There was so much support I noticed and it made him feel so much better.
      I had reached out once in a situation where there was a medical issue with my husband. I was frantic. I could not believe the numbers of people that prayed and sent good wishes. They all came from the heart.
      This is what I feel is the best rewards when working with people in a tribe. We get so close and get to know each other as we go along.
      It is the human spirit that I love the most.

      Being part of a tribe is a great place to be. But one must keep in mind that if you are, you need to have a blog that gives people good content. NEVER put up a static sales page, no one would syndicate you if you do that.
      There are great tribes out there Anna, just contact me and I’ll bring you in.

    I haven’t participated in many tribes, but the ones I am included in has been super beneficial to me personally. The blog group on Facebook has been a godsend to me because of its networking benefits and it has allowed me to get to know others outside or inside my niche. What I don’t think people realize is that tribes help put your work out to people you may or may not ever reach.

    If you aren’t apart of some tribe or group, I highly recommend joining. You can learn allot from the information provided and others get to know you too. That’s a win-win for everyone!

    Being in a tribe has been a great learning tool for me, you can’t beat the price. But now that I am a little more savvy about online marketing I can see that the time that you may put into the tribe may not be a good return on your inbvestemtn. Reading and commenting and syndicating takes time.

Kevin Kelley in his book “New Rules for the New Economy” shares 10 strategies for a connected world. In the new economy tribes will be a powerful tool for meeting and connecting. As you clearly point out the very word… “tribe” brings us all together. Donna, you have share a cutting edge message.

    Hi Donna,
    Tribes are really powerful, I started joining tribes just a few months ago at the end of 2011 and I realize how they can help to get more traffic and meet like minded people. As you said the most important thing that tribes offer is that you find so many people who can help you in many ways or even become friends with them…

    Hi Donna,

    I quite like the idea of tribes, where we can turn and ask advice or offer support as well as generating long term relationships that help us all move forward.

    It also helps with getting our content out to a wider audience and of course the benefits that go hand in hand with that extra reach as it were.

    I take on board what Oliver said in his comment about having to comment on posts that doesn’t quite grab you, but we don’t have to comment on every post. Just those that do grab our interest or attention 🙂

    I can think of far more benefits than disadvantages 😉

    Thanks Donna,

      It doesn’t benefit either party.
      Syndication is all about good content first and foremost. I have fun with it because I learn something from all the blogs I visit, find great friends and have done some JV’s

    Well done for building your tribe, Donna!

    Hey Donna,

    I’ve also been in several tribes the last few years and they’ve all been great experiences. I agree that one of the key benefits, besides sharing content are the connections you make with fellow tribe mates.

    Some of the people I’ve met in tribes are among my closest internet friends and mastermind partners. It’s a great way to understand what someone else is all about, how they run their business and their philosophy. From there, the decision to connect or not is easy.

    As you know Donna, online syndication tribes have a very dear place in my heart. It’s a blessing to get to work with the TSA community team and you there too 🙂

    Tribes play a vital role in both syndication and having a sense of community. There’s a lot of personal connectedness to them that goes beyond simply gaining traffic and can really help someone survive rough spots in their sites growth.

    Plus, the relationships built often turn into both friendships and business joint ventures that can be profitable to both the heart and wallet!

    I’m pretty new to the idea of tribes but since I started participating I’ve found it really enjoyable. I can see where a tribe might lose momentum (like Oliver said) but I think that during your time in the tribe you make friendships that transcend the “rules”. I know there are people I would still follow and share with even if the “tribe” itself dissolved (ahem… you would be one of them!) I also use RSS as a way to track other people who I enjoy but that just adds to the experience!

    And yes, i would definitely be interested in hearing what other tribes you recommend. I’ve been finding so many really insightful people this way. Thanks you being part of that!

    Hi Donna,

    a tribe is very powerful tool. And you are right, it doesn’t help with Google ranking, we’re always a lot from other people – and they do from us. What I noticed with tribes that they lose momentum after a while, a few weeks, months or a year and if you have to comment for example, because it’s a part of the deal, it becomes annoying if you have to comment on a post you can’t resonate with at all. So I prefer free blog networking today, I suscribed to a whole bunch of RSS feeds and visit the post and comment on them if I choose to do so and not because they rules of the tribe say so.

    Thanks for sharing your insights.

    Be blessed

    Oliver

      Thank you Oliver for your input. I am glad those RSS feeds are working for you. I know some tribes lose momentum after a while, but the bond of friendship we make with those people last a long time!
      Thanks

        Hey April, Good to see you! I see that you have just joined one of the tribes I am in. You will notice how wonderful those people are and if you ever need anything at all, they will be there. Just ask a question, and you will be surprised how many answers you will get.
        Talk to you soon,
        Donna

    I dig tribes for the same reason Donna. We expand each other’s presence and pick up a TON of awesome research material along the way. Learning, prospering, all that good stuff. Thanks for sharing Donna.

      Hey Ryan, I just had to share this because I have been seeing so many powerful blogs out there with zero comments! I have been hitting up the “big boys” and trying to teach Social Media to them. It boggles my mind how a company big or small will try to get into the game of Social Media and screw it all up.
      I’m try’n!
