Creating a Tribe Using Facebook


There used to be a time where it would be so difficult to
build your own brand. You needed a lot money to create
brand awareness and there were only so many mediums
through which you could get your message across. Nowa-
days, with the increasing amount of media and social plat-
forms like facebook, twitter, linkedin, and so many others,
it has become a lot easier to become your own brand.

However, in spite of the fact that it has become easier to


build your own brand, people still get overwhelmed and in-
timidated when they think about building awareness in a specific market. But, do you actually need to build brand
awareness within millions of people to be successful? It depends what your goals are. But, for the parent entrepre-
neur, one thousand true fans might be sufficient to create a great living.

For a more in depth article about true fans, I recommend you read Kevin Kelly’s article “1,000 True Fans” (http://
www.kk.org/thetechnium/archives/2008/03/1000_true_fans.php ). Here’s what Kelly has to say about a true fan:
“A True Fan is defined as someone who will purchase anything and everything you produce. They will drive 200
miles to see you sing. They will buy the super deluxe re-issued hi-res box set of your stuff even though they have the
low-res version. They have a Google Alert set for your name. They bookmark the eBay page where your out-of-print
editions show up. They come to your openings. They have you sign their copies. They buy the t-shirt, and the mug,
and the hat. They can't wait till you issue your next work. They are true fans.”

Moreover, I found another great article about 1,000 true fans on this blog Collective Thoughts: Social Media Think-
ing (http://collective-thoughts.com/2010/01/26/1000-true-fans/ ) where Glen Allsopp describes who your true fans
are. According to Allsopp, your true fans are the people that:
• Talk about you
• Promote your work
• Use your products / services with pride
• Feel like they are a part of your brand and your community

When you think of building one thousand true fans, instead of thousands or millions of fans, the task becomes less
intimidating and less overwhelming.

Leading Your Tribe


Not too long ago, I listened to an audio book by Seth Godin called Tribes. On his book, Seth discusses how becom-
ing a leader of your tribe (market) is indispensable to your business success. Godin defines a tribe as a group of peo-
ple connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea that inspires their passion. He believes
that tribes give ordinary people the power to lead and create massive and positive change in our society. Godin
says, “...leadership is the best marketing tactic to any organization--a company, a school, a church, a job seeker.” As
human beings we have a need to belong, “to be part of a tribe, to contribute to (and take from) a group of like-
minded people. We are drawn to leaders and to their ideas, and we can't resist the rush of belonging and the thrill of
the new," he says.

Bottom line is, if we want real change in our business or businesses, we need to become real leaders of a tribe and
create unique bonding experiences within our community.

Through the multitude of social platforms, the web has broken the barriers for leadership. Facebook, like many other
social platforms, has made it easy for “aspiring tribe leaders” to build and nurture their own virtual communities.
With Facebook, people have the ability to create pages where people can interact and share their special interests.

Here’s a step by step process on how you can easily create your own page and start building your tribe.

Step #1: Open your facebook account and click on the “Home” tab.

Step #2: On the left hand side, you will see a several tabs. Click on “See more”

Step #3: You will see the “Ads and Pages” exposed. Click on it.

Step #4: On the left hand side, you will see “Pages”. Click on it.

Step #5: Click on “+Create Page”

Step #6: Begin building your page.
