Key Takeaways

  1. The Power of Word of Mouth

    • Sustain Long-Term Growth: Word of mouth alone isn’t enough for long-term growth. Use it as a stepping stone to bigger, more sustainable strategies.
    • Accelerate Short-Term Wins: Focus on creating short-term successes that demonstrate the effectiveness of word of mouth in driving immediate results.
  2. Movement Building Strategies

    • Create a Community Mission: A successful movement requires a community united by a mission. Short-term wins are essential to sustain investment in the movement.
    • Experiential Content Marketing: Design events to co-create content with your audience. This not only engages them but also helps in spreading the message.
  3. Case Studies and Success Stories

    • Example from 2020: Pablo’s team generated $40 million in revenue from a community-driven show, attributing 80% of this revenue to just 30 dedicated community members.
    • JWB's $40 Million Success: By fostering a community and leveraging experiential content marketing, JWB saw a significant increase in online leads and sales.

Detailed Guide

  1. Leveraging Word of Mouth

    Strategies to Accelerate Word of Mouth:

    • Engage Super Consumers: Identify and promote your most passionate customers. Turn them into community leaders and evangelists.
    • Personal Touch: Ensure your key figures (e.g., CEOs) engage directly with the community, similar to Penn and Teller’s approach.
  2. Creating and Sustaining a Movement

    Steps to Build a Movement:

    • Focus on the Problem: Start with the problem your community faces. Clearly articulate this problem to align with their experiences.
    • Promote Short-Term Wins: Showcase quick successes to maintain momentum and investment in the movement.
    • Utilize Experiential Content Marketing: Design events that create co-authored content with your audience. This fosters engagement and helps spread your message organically.

    Examples and Links:

    • Experiential Content Marketing Example: JWB’s Not Your Average Investor Show created significant engagement and led to substantial revenue growth.
    • Super Consumer Strategy: Highlighting super consumers in your content and events to build trust and loyalty. 
  3. Operationalizing Your Strategy

    Implementing the Plan:

    • Digital Events: Host regular live shows to engage your community. Use these events to create content and foster interaction.
    • In-Person Events: Complement digital events with in-person gatherings. Start small and scale up based on engagement.
    • Content Repurposing: Use content from events in your marketing to continuously engage your audience and attract new members.

Conclusion Building trust and growing a community requires a strategic approach that combines word of mouth with movement-building strategies. By focusing on experiential content marketing and engaging your super consumers, you can create a robust, sustainable community.
