Tribe Syndication Alliance (TSA) Results Rock The House!
There’s been a LOT written about Syndication Tribes and the incredible results they can generate but its often hard to quantify the hard numbers (which happens to be one of my favorite things to do).
To recap for those just joining us…
What Is A Syndication Tribe?
A Syndication Tribe (aka Syndication Alliance or Tribe Syndication Team) is a group of allied individuals, in separate businesses or companies that are utilizing attraction marketing and abundance mindset (and some WordPress plugins and other free tools) to willingly work together to cross promote each others content through all major social media channels (rather than just blog to blog or blog to twitter).
While I run a Syndication Tribe organization (Syndication Alliance “SA”) I also actively participate in quite a few others. One of my favorites being “Tribe Syndication Association (TSA)” founded by Dave Cook. TSA is a sister program to SA and a very complimentary setup.
Due to the way life has been the last few weeks, I’ve been short on time, short on sleep, and sleeping such odd hours that it has been almost impossible for me to meet with any of the available SA teams on a consistent basis which means I cant participate that way.
I ran into the very issue that caused TSA (and their spreadsheet model) to be formed on a different model in the first place.
Where I Was At… What I Needed…
As I presented in my 270 Day Site Metrics yesterday due to having been so distracted away from my blog and unable to run Tribes my traffic had flat-lined. My direct and referral traffic (non-SEO) numbers had fallen through the floor to really sad levels and it was past time to take some action!
In my Fourth Quarter 2010, 90 Day Goals post I spelled out my goals which include “Traffic: Shave about 13k off my Alexa Global Traffic number to hit #50k” … and as a sub goal that will help facilitate that… “Do a minimum of 200 TSA Syndication Counters per week”
Planning for this, last week I put myself back “on the board” with TSA. Now, the problem is that you have to wait on the week to “roll” into a new week before you can get a team, so often your first week is spent going through their six-day training videos (which the new ones rock), and waiting.
While you have access to all of the member’s data, because you are not on a team, you can not expect any return syndication as “obligatory”… but, as I showed a couple friends, that doesn’t mean you can’t play the game!
Let me be upfront and say that I KNOW how to play this game and play it HARD. I play to WIN and its a game that everyone wins or no one does.
When I set out last week to pull some results I knew that I would generate them even with no obligatory syndication just because of how these communities work.
I am not saying that a person that does not know how to play this game is going to get these results until they’ve done the training and know how to play the game. I’m also not saying that these results can be gotten without a willingness to help others succeed and without fundamental business necessities such as good content.
But I got results alright… damn hot ones!
If you don’t know how to read that Google Analytic’s dashboard it essentially shows that I generated an extra %11.04 visits, %13.02 page views and (due to networking with some new people interesting in learning about me because I’d reached out to help them), slightly increased my pages per visit number compared to the week prior.
What’s even more hot? I did without spending a dime!
There is a REASON that I swear by Syndication Tribes – THEY WORK!
If your TIRED of treading water, if you SICK of blogging to no visitors, if your FED UP with being told you need to pay for traffic and if your READY to get results then get involved in a Syndication Tribe today!
