Our 2017 Conference Theme is…
Everywhere we turn, we’re seeing the spirit of Tribes make its presence known. Whether in the form of an Instagram pod or a Facebook community; a podcast audience or a Slack group, the desire to form a circle of like-minded individuals with a common goal and respected leadership is everywhere. And here’s the secret that us influencers have known all along: the level of engagement within a well-led tribe is through the roof. This is exciting, not only for content creators, but for media and marketers, too.
As so keenly put by Seth Godin almost a decade ago:
“A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate.”
(Seth Godin, Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us)
We want to take that notion one step further and highlight your ‘how.’ What are some of the smartest, most fun, and most powerful ways you’ve gone about building your tribe?
For our 9th annual Blogalicious Weekend, we’re celebrating the importance of tribes — the trusted communities that each of you has built and are so expertly leading. In doing so, we’re paying homage to our tribe of multicultural, social media enthusiasts who continually build and foster platforms; destinations, resources, collaborations and connections that bring to light movements, information, life-hacks and social issues to the world around them. From where we stand, “Tribe” is not just another “it” word, but a way of life and sense of kinship that elevates everyone and everything around us. With an inspired tribe, the ability to make change and leave a legacy is beyond limits
