Third Tribe Marketing – Blog Community

by Brian on March 5, 2010




What is the Third Tribe Marketing blog community?

It’s a blogging community that was formed by Brian Clark and Sonia Simone of CopyBlogger, Darren Rowse of ProBlogger and Chris Brogan. They are known for being the most ethical Internet Marketers on the web.

The Back Story

For several years there have been 2 schools of thought when it comes to Internet Marketing.

On one side you have hard core Internet Marketers who flash the cash, houses, boats and dream cars.

A lot of these marketers sell useless junk… Some are selling really great products. It’s hard to tell the difference because they are all packaged and labeled the same (long sales letters with yellow highlighting and big red letters).

On the other side you have the Social Media “cool kids.” They think making money online is a crime that should be punished by having your hands chopped off… That might be a little extreme… But the point is, they think it’s unethical to make money online.

The Third Tribe Marketing – Blog Community is a meeting in the middle of the hardcore IMers and Social Media Kids… to where everybody learns from everyone.

Seth Godin (the unofficial King of Hardcore IMers) got into discussion with Brian Clark about which “side” he was on after Brian did a blunt blog post about another hardcore Internet Marketer.

Then Brian got to talking with Sonia… Sonia put out a post on The Third Tribe. Darren got involved in the discussion and so did Chris.

Now about a year later, we have The Third Tribe Marketing Community.

If you don’t know who these people are, that’s cool… I’m going to fill you in.

Why We Are Part of The Third Tribe Marketing – Blog Community

For me it was a no brainer… I saw Brian Clark promoting a community that he Sonia, Darren and Chris were going to be a part of and I was on board.

There are 3 things that I’m getting from The Third Tribe Marketing – Blog Community

  1. Education

  2. We are firm believers in continuing education. We are always seeking quality information on sales, marketing, SEO, SEM, MLM, technology and business related things.

    Every month they either do a webinar or live audio class along with 2 live Q & A calls led by Brian, Sonia, Darren and/or Chris.

  3. The Forum
  4. Advice, Feedback and Interaction not only from Brian, Sonia, Darren and Chris… But from other A listers who are part of this community.

  5. Contacts

  6. I’m doing my first guest post on our Uruguay blog next week, that’s because of a connection in the forum. There are some great contacts to be made.

The Third Tribe membership is $47 a month… We feel it’s worth at least twice that amount.
