It’s Tribe season and the doors will soon open to Stu Mclaren’s signature program, the Tribe Experience. So what better time to share my experiences of Tribe.
Plus I’ve also put together a package of exclusive bonuses if you decide to join Tribe with me (yes I am doing it all again because it was that good!)
First off, a full disclaimer: I am a Tribe affiliate and I will get a commission if you decide to purchase
The bonuses we are offering are not available anywhere else and cannot be purchased separately.
My status as an affiliate does not affect my recommendation in any way because I only ever recommend things I have tried and tested personally… Actually, being an affiliate probably means I’m more critical when it comes to reviews because I’m putting my name behind this and want you to know exactly what you’re getting AND I’m using my time to tell you about this when I could be promoting my own business.
Tribe only opens for enrolment once a year so if you already made your mind up you can click here to join.
Or continue reading as I am about to share my honest review of the programme.
Why The Tribe Experience?
In my opinion, if you want to add a recurring revenue stream to your business and create more financial stability there is no better programme out there than Stu Mclaren’s Tribe course.
In this article I am going to share my experiences of Tribe, and how following Stu’s training we were able to close our Founding Member Launch with 380 members, and grow to over 500 members in under 6 months!
What is Tribe?
TRIBE is Stu McLaren’s six module signature training program that gives you the clarity and confidence to launch, grow and scale a high 6, 7 and even 8-figure membership site… even if you’re starting from scratch.
This course is based around the 6 core strategies for long-term membership success including marketing, retention and growth.
Stu has helped tens of thousands of people to create their membership. Ranging from food and fitness to dog training and piano, photography, business, crafts, product-based subscription sites and everything in between.
What Stu is teaching worked for them and it worked for me too.
Not only does Stu know his stuff, but he also shares the lot. He leaves no stone unturned and no question unanswered.
The Tribe course opens once a year, usually in April and starts out with a series of FREE workshops which are open to anyone.
These workshops are crazy good and you’ll learn all about the Success Path and Stu’s strategy for a founding member launch.
In fact, during the Tribe Workshops 2020, so many people launched their brand new memberships during the free workshops it was mind-blowing!
How does the Tribe course work?
Tribe is an online programme and each week you get access to a new module. You start off with the foundations and figure out where you are on the Success Path™️ right now so you can focus solely on the right steps for you.
Every week day Stu goes live for his legendary 10in10 Q&A’s in the Tribe Community. These 10in10 sessions are meant to be 10 questions in 10 minutes, but remember I said Stu leaves no stone unturned? Yeah.. that means these are rarely 10 minute sessions!
The best bit about the Q&A is that you can submit a question in advance and even if you can’t watch live to see the answer you can use Searchie to find the exact spot in the video where he answered your question AND you can search hundreds of other Q&A’s to find answers to other questions you might have too!
You’ll also get to attend Brainstorm Breakout sessions with your fellow Tribers where you can get feedback on your ideas and build great connections to drive your membership forwards.
TRIBE is the only membership site course that is based on years of best practices from over 60,000+ membership sites and online communities. This isn’t based on a one-time success.
I’ll be straight with you here. TRIBE is not some cheap, fly-by-night program. It’s a world class, well-designed and highly-effective system that gets you results.
And don’t forget, Stu has been doing this himself, having experience running both high 6-figure and 7-figure membership sites. And, he is personally coaching and consulting other high-level entrepreneurs, best-selling authors and well known influencers on how to launch their high profit, low stress membership site. He’s in the trenches. He knows firsthand what works and what doesn’t. And there’s no one better suited to learn from when building your membership.
And, while the Tribe Experience is a course not a membership, you’ll see some of the ways Stu makes the course engaging and fun and makes you want to join his membership from day one. So you can take these ideas and put your own spin on them for your community
What did Tribe do for me?
When I joined Tribe with my business partner, Laura Davis (AKA Laura 2), we had already planned to launch our membership for social media pros, The Inner Hub.
But our only knowledge of what a membership should include came from our experience of memberships we’d been in. So we didn’t have all the answers and we wanted to make sure our membership was the best it could possibly be for the people investing in joining us.
Tribe gave us clarity on the foundations of a great membership. What it should include, how we could successfully launch our membership without any content and without putting in too many hours to build something we didn’t know if people would even want.
We used what we’d learnt in Tribe to launch our membership with 380 founding members joining us., watch this video to see how exciting that launch actually was!
And thanks to Tribe, we knew how to ensure they had a great experience, even without much content, so they wanted to stick around.
During the first 6 months we were able to grow The Inner Hub to over 500 members.
Now we not only start every month with money in the bank to pay our team and provide us with an income. We are working with 500+ amazing people every day and we LOVE it.
Being part of their success is the very best part of a membership and the job satisfaction is incredible.
Is it hard work… you betcha! Is it worth it? ABSOLUTELY!
What’s so good about Tribe?
For me there were a few things I really liked about the Tribe course.
#1 The lessons were short and sweet but gave you everything you needed.
I typically find myself watching courses on 1.5x speed to get through the lessons as there’s often a lot of fluff.
Not in Tribe.
Stu shares actionable strategies and tactics in every lesson. Each video is around 5-10 minutes and they’re done so well you can’t help but want to watch the whole thing.
#2 The community is amazing.
Usually, large groups with thousands of members can be intimidating but Tribers have one key goal, to build a thriving membership and they support each other like you’ve never seen!
Not only does this guy know EVERYTHING about memberships, his enthusiasm is infectious and he makes you want to just keep going no matter what roadblocks you encounter.
#4 The goodies!
Spoiler alert.. there’s swag! And we love a bit of swag right? But you also get to attend Tribe Live, Stu McLaren’s live event which he hosts once a year only for Tribers and your ticket is included as a bonus when you join Tribe. This years Tribe Live event was the first time he’d gone virtual and it was so impressive to be part of.
What’s not so good about Tribe?
It’s hard to think of what wasn’t so good but here are a few things you might want to consider.
#1 The 10in10s are long!
Definitely don’t expect 10 questions in 10 minutes. But like I already explained, you don’t need to watch all of these live sessions and can search for key words in the recordings if you want to find answers in the future. But I will say that every time I did stick around and watch the whole Q&A I learnt something, some times more than one thing. Because it’s often other people’s questions that bring you the answers you didn’t know you needed.
#2 The lessons drip weekly.
If you are impatient like me then the weekly drip of lessons might frustrate you. But it also stops you being overwhelmed by trying to learn everything at once.
#3 It’s not a miracle cure
It’s no good just watching the videos, showing up in the community and taking part in the 10in10’s. You have to do the work, a membership doesn’t create itself. But if you follow the guidance and put in the work you can build a thriving membership following the Tribe method.
If you are thinking of launching a membership or subscription site, Tribe is opening soon and here’s everything you need to know.
