If you’re going to be powerless over something why not make it something positive – right? For me it’s this place:
Over the last year I have been replacing negative high risk behaviors with guaranteed negative outcomes with the exact opposite. The Third Tribe community is now one of my favorite places to run and hide when I need a mental break. Why you ask? Well let me tell you why.
In just 30 days as a member I have learned:
- How to improve this blog in so many small ways.
- How to Improve my ColorMetrix business site.
- How to Improve traffic and usability of the ColorMetrix on-line store.
- …and I’m just getting started!
More importantly I have met so many like-minded individuals. Other bloggers, other marketers, other people struggling to understand how business and marketing in the on-line world really work. I’ve been able to interact with people like Chris Brogan, Brian Clark and other heavy hitters in the world of blogging and on-line marketing.
When I am feeling overwhelmed by my day or just need a ten minute break Third Tribe Marketing is where I turn now. The forums are my favorite place in Third Tribe to spend time. I feel safe there – I will write and share things there that are a bit too raw and unedited for this blog. I learn, I contribute, I share with an awesome community of like-minded individuals.
There is a fee for Third Tribe and I know that turns some people off. That’s OK, the heavy hitters in there (and the not so heavy hitters like me) still have blogs where everything is free. I will continue to write here everyday. I will continue to participate in the comments here. This is my home base and everything I do on-line starts and ends right here. I’m not going anywhere. My Membership in Third Tribe makes JimRaffel.com a better place to be.
The fee is paid monthly so the initial “risk” is fairly modest if you are serious about your on-line marketing activities. In addition to the forums I love so much, there has been some amazing seminar content just in the first month. Topics like:
- Building a Business Around a Blog Part 1
(Darren Rowse with Brian Clark)
- Building a Business Around a Blog Part 2
(Chris Brogan with Sonia Simone)
- Building a Business Around a Blog Part 3
(Brian Clark with Sonia Simone)
Plus coming this month more great educational content has been announced:
- Building a Business Around a Blog Part 4
(Leo Baubata with Darren Rowse)
- Email Marketing Strategies that Work
(Brian Clark and Sonia Simone)

While it could be argued I am writing this post for the affiliate revenue I may earn should some of you decide to sign up, that would be wrong. The revenue will be appreciated to support my blogging habit, but I am much more interested in adding more like minded individuals with different points of view to the community. The forums are already amazing, just imagine how much better they will be with your voice included.
