The Age of the Social Entrepreneur by @Mark_Harai

Social Entrepreneurs possess a mindset to build strategic relationships with their customers, vendors, suppliers, distributors, stakeholders and anyone who has a stake in the future success of their business.

The definition of a social entrepreneur.

By leveraging social web-based technologies you can strengthen the vitality and health of the “people relationships” that are instrumental to the health and longevity of your business.

Building your organization on a foundation of teamwork and partnerships will benefit both those inside and outside of your organization. It’s this mindset that drives the social entrepreneur.

The social web has established a platform for business owners to influence the future buying decisions of consumers by building strong relationships in the marketplace.

By being helpful, educational and attentive to people your business desires to serve, you can build a bridge that leads to your door when a buying decision is made.

Social entrepreneurs can effectively leverage human capital in ways traditional business cannot.  It’s this advantage right here that big business will never have…

Big businesses ‘buy’ everything they need, while social business can ‘inspire’ people to fill their needs.

It’s not to say a social business doesn’t spend money on filling their needs; but it does lead to connecting with and investing in people in more meaningful ways that aligns interests & personalities, and leads to loyalty & trust.

A social business established on a foundation like this has a bright future, indeed.

Social businesses are driven to make the world a better place for all…

Quote - think your idea can change the world.

Social businesses measure performance and profitability, but they also take into account the impact they are having on society.

A purpose driven business with a vision bigger than itself can align with other like-minded individuals and businesses to effect positive social and economic change in the communities they serve.

I think it’s great that CEO’s rake in millions, hundreds of millions in some cases, in compensation from large organizations they manage. But it really doesn’t make good sense for social businesses.

I’m not against an individual raking in a fortune from the work they do – I just believe it’s good social business to spread the wealth around; especially to those people and communities that are instrumental to your long term success.

That seems like a good investment of money to me :)

Social business goes beyond the boundaries of the past… You’re not bound by territory, you’re not bound by politics, you’re not bound by religion – you’re not even bound by not having a bunch of cash to start your business.

You’re bound only by your own desire & vision and the actions you take to connect with like-minded people across the globe who join your efforts to change the world one relationship at a time.

Social entrepreneurs build worthwhile businesses.

Take Triberr to the Next Level with Reblogging! by @BrentCarnduff

Triberr Reblogging

Have you discovered reblogging on Triberr yet?  If not,  you’re missing out on a great opportunity provided by Triberr!

Are you . . .

. . . looking for more exposure for your content?

. . . looking for Guest Blogging opportunities?

. . . hoping that your content might be shared in syndication?

. . . needing more content to publish?

. . . interested in content curation?

. . . wanting to improve your SEO?

. . . trying to increase reader engagement?

If you’re on Triberr already, it’s pretty safe to assume that you’ve answered “yes” to at least one of these  questions, if not all of them – and that reblogging could be your solution!

What is Reblogging?

The Triberr Reblogging option allows you to repost other “Triberr Reblog” member’s content on your blog.

How Does it Work?

You need to be a member of Triberr (free!) and to be using the blogging platform.

Begin by installing the Triberr plugin on your blog.

Now, as you scroll through your Triberr stream, you can identify other “rebloggers” by the inclusion of an image in the introduction to their content, and the “reblog” link in the options at the bottom of the listing.

Identify reblog

To repost an article on your blog, click the “reblog link”, and the article will appear as a “draft” in your list of posts for your blog.

Preview the article and make any formatting changes that are necessary, and “Publish”. The article will appear on your blog, and thanks to the Triberr widget, the author’s bio and a Triberr Comment Box will appear at the bottom of the post.

Additionally, any comments that appear on ANY copy of this article, from another post or the Triberr platform, will appear as a running commentary stream on all blogs that carry it!

Did Someone Say “SEO Benefits”?

It’s in my nature to view everything from an SEO perspective, and Reblogging definitely offers SEO benefits. As well as providing more fresh content, each reblogged post will provide, at minimum, a link back to the original post from the author’s bio. In addition, any links within the body of the article will also remain live and become backlinks to that content.

Hard to believe it, but Triberr just got even better!

Thanks for reading. As always your comments, questions, or reblogs : ) are welcome and appreciated!

Let’s start out by admitting that Triberr is a very weird and unique social network. It takes people few days to get used to it, but I think after you watch this video you get that time down to an hour.

To help you get there, Petra Fisher and I sit down for an hour long screencast on how to use Triberr.

Petra is new to Triberr. She is really smart, has strong background in technology (she is a renowned LinkedIn trainer in Holland), and after this session, I consider her an expert on Triberr as well :-)

I would love nothing more than for you to watch the entire video, but since it’s is quite long (over an hour), the lovely and talented Jelena Woehr, was kind enough to provide us with a timelined breakdown of the entire video for easy navigation.
