Using video to bond with your Tribe in your New Media Marketing will boost emotional bonding.

If you’ve been shying away from using it because you think capturing video needs to be complex or costly — this is going to rock your world and remove any fear. And even if you’re more experienced at filming with an expensive HD camera, you’ll see why this is a “must have tool” for you too!

When it comes to capturing video for New Media Marketing, there’s a new king on the block for simplicity. It’s called the Flip Video recorder. This tiny little recorder (it’s the size of a pack of cards,) holds 60-minutes of digital video. Quality is more than sufficient for Web use, and it even looks good on a regular TV too.

We’ve been testing the new Flip Video in “normal” filming situations. But we wanted to really put it to the test and see how quickly it would adapt to rapid light changes and high speed movement.

As you’ll see from the video, the Flip Video does not disappoint here either. The online trans-coding on YouTube does it no justice, Revver is better.

But above in raw format, and even on Revver down below, you can see that it did as good a job at color and light adjustment under demanding situations. Surprisingly as good as our $2,000 Sony HD camera! You can really see the lush greens of the mountains and deep blues of the ocean even at high speed.

Flip Video is one of the best “bang for your buck” purchases you can make. At around $150 online, Flip Video is a “must have” tool for anyone serious about New Media Marketing.

How could you boost your Tribal Seduction and New Media Marketing with a Flip video Recorder? And if you’ve already got a Flip Video, what are you doing with it to have fun and bond with your Tribe?

Drop us a quick note below and share your ideas.

New Media Marketing and Tribal Seduction Lessons: How $4.2 million Was Raised in 7-days

Seeing that this week was kicked off with Veterans Day here in the U.S., I thought it would be timely to share a quick New Media Marketing example where over $4.2 million dollars was raised for military families in 7-days! It is a good example of how New Media combined with Tribal Seduction strategies work with any size Tribe.

helping childeren of Marines and law enforcementRush Limbaugh was the catalyst for this big charity drive for the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation. (An organization dedicated to helping the children of Marines or Federal law enforcement personnel who lost their lives while serving our country.)

Now… love him or hate him — no one can deny that a loyal Tribe of 22-million weekly listeners is pretty solid evidence that Rush is a master at playing the Tribal Seduction game.

I’m a big proponent of modeling success to cut the learning curve. I’m impatient and I don’t like to work any harder than I have to. So I’m always looking for real-life examples to get where I want faster and with fewer mistakes. I don’t care what side of the political isle, industry, business, or obscure niche I find an example.

In the case of this charity fund raiser case, Rush developed a New Media Marketing strategy that you can learn from and model, no matter what the size of your Tribe.

Extensive details leading up to this 7-day campaign aren’t necessary, but I’ll add some of the most surprising to the story as we go along.

So let’s get rolling. You with me?

Record breaking charity event — New Media powered…

Five channels were used to make this game plan work. One “traditional” channel, and four New Media channels.

The traditional:

  • Radio

The New Media channels:

  • Podcasts
  • Online Video (YouTube)
  • eBay
  • Blogs

What’s encouraging for small business owners and entrepreneurs about this example? It’s that mainstream, traditional media outlets had nothing to do with the success of the effort.

Getting the word out was a grassroots effort. It spread virally when the Tribe (and those sympathetic to the Tribe’s cause,) began using New Media channels like blogs along with additional podcasts and online videos.

The result — 201,000 pages created in one week around a unique keyword developed for this campaign. You can see this awesome display of the power of New Media power in the actual search results on Google.

Yes, yes. I know. You might be thinking, “Yeah, but Rush has a Tribe of 22-million people. That won’t work for me.”

Am I telling you that you can go out and make millions of dollars in 7-days? No way! That would be a load of BS. ;-P

What I am saying though, is these New Media channels work in proportion to the size of your Tribe. They work every time you use them. Yet, you do need to be using them in a strategic way.

Here’s what I mean…

Tribal Seduction in action

Technology only goes so far. It’s the publicity and marketing strategy of this 7-day campaign that really yielded the results. Makes sense, right?

There were a number of Tribal Seduction principles employed to get the word out, raise awareness and raise the record-shattering money in 7-days. But three really jump to the forefront.

Follow along with me here for three minutes and you’ll see all three principles in action:

A Tribal “Shout Out” For Our Veterans

To all our heroes, retired from active duty or hard at work protecting our freedom here and abroad — a BIG thank you! God bless you all.Living here in Hawaii, the strong military presence is a constant reminder of the critical work these men and women do. Having friends in all branches of the U.S. Military allows me to see up close and personal the sacrifices they make to protect our freedoms here and abroad.

Veterans day was yesterday. And if you’re in the US, you’re probably “celebrating” it with a day off work today.

That’s cool. Just remember, when you have the opportunity to thank our brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces, please do so. It means more to them than you could imagine. :)

New Media Marketing Video: How To Use Social Bookmarking To Build Your Tribe and Make More Money Online

In this video we’re going to take a look at social bookmarking and how to use social bookmarking to build your tribe and make more money online. We’ll reveal four steps that automagically happen when you leverage social bookmarking sites… PLUS one final step that is critical if you’re going to use this New Media channel for boosting your traffic, list optin growth, and sales.

(Download video transcript & charts below)

Step 1 – by you

The first step is following the basics that we laid out in Part One of this series; What is Social Bookmarking? Understand that you need to have some social bookmarking accounts set up.

Once you’ve created your post (or page) on your blog, you’re going to go to the various bookmarking sites. (A complete list is provided within the PDF download below.) You’ll want to bookmark your at the various sites. It can be one or two, or it could be a couple dozen.

Step 2 – automagic

Once you have your post bookmarked, almost immediately the Google spider, and the Yahoo spider and the MSN spiders, any of the search engine spiders, are going to come into these sites.

Search engines love the social bookmarking sites because they’re highly ranked and they’re highly credible. The content that is being created here is filtered by human beings. So the search engines see it as being a highly credible source of links to valuable content.

The Google spider crawls through the social bookmarking sites, immediately follows the link back to your site, checks the post that has been bookmarked, comes back to the Google home and further increases the ranking on that content for you. That increases the chances of you being found by the general public. They find the content based on the keywords that they’ve entered. Generally the search engines will lead them into your home page. (There are some key things that need to be on the home page, but we’ll get to that in a little bit.)
