Seth Godin Explains Why You Need a Tribe by Loic Lemeur
And since yesterday was a rather long blog post, I thought today I would share with you folks a shorter one. A much shorter one, actually. But a rather interesting, compelling and enlightening one. One that would take you about 14 minutes to digest, but keep you thinking for a long while! I am sure of that! At least, it has had that effect with me.
Check out this interview that Loic Lemeur has shared over at his blog of a recent 12 minute interview he did with Seth Godin where he gets to talk about his concept of tribes; marketing done right; leading the way through community involvement, driven by empowering community members to thrive on through their (And your!) common passion(s) / mission; on doing what you are really good at and stick with that!; on reflecting why you shouldn’t jump into every single social networking tool there is out there just for the sake of it (Incredibly inspiring that part of the interview, by the way!); in short, how you can (And should!) define your own social software adoption strategy to make you better at what you already do excel at!
Yes, indeed, one of the best short interviews I have seen in a long while! Really enjoyed that informal flavour they gave to it as well, with plenty of knowledge nuggets to chew on that, like I said, would make you think about plenty of the stuff you are heavily involved with at the moment. Thus without much further ado, here it is:
Now, is that the reason why I have been relatively quiet today in Twitter? Hummm, some further food for thought in there, I think… Oh, and listen up to some of the amazing stuff Seth also talks about with regards to one of my favourite topics as of late: re-purposing e-mail to communicate, share and collaborate with others!
