Community Wins: 21 Thoughts on Building a Thriving Online Tribe
Where to buy: www.amazon.com
Online communities are places where we can create a sphere of influence for ourselves. We can cultivate an online presence that others will want to flock to. It seems like a daunting thought, but author Bryan Allain shows you just how to do that. He has successfully designed online “tribes” for musicians, authors and to further his own writing career. You can do the same.
This book does not contain a formula for building a successful online community. Rather it shows you how to be the star of your own show. This is done not by believing that you are the center of the universe but showing that because you are important enough to focus on, everyone is important in the same way. These 21 thoughts are presented in sort of a workbook format so you can include your notes and thoughts for each thought provided. To build your online community, you need to be willing to be a leader of that community. In that way, you are not in the forefront but promoting others as you gain what you want for yourself. He discusses a lot about his writing career (since that is what he built his tribe around) but his thoughts will work for whatever you decide is important enough to you to warrant an online presence.
