About

Hey I’m Bryan Allain, a 36-year old former Chemical Engineer who now makes a living helping other people find their fans, extend their reach, and build their killer tribes.

I launched Killer Tribes in 2010 because I love helping people find their voice, share their passions, connect with others, and grow their brand. There are so many folks out there with a valuable message to share who aren’t sure how to get that message to more people.

I LOVE helping people figure that out. Seriously, there are few things I love more than helping folks hone in on their voice, connect with the right people, and build a thriving community.

I do this in a few key ways.

The Mailing List

I put out a newsletter a couple times a month that delivers all sorts of goodness directly to your inbox. In it you’ll find insightful content, personal stories, and lessons from my failures and successes over the last 10 years as a community builder.

If you sign up now, you’ll receive a free copy of my latest eBook, This is NOT a Treasure Map, as a thank you.






The Killer Tribes Blogger Community

I love bloggers. I’ve been one since 2000, so I fully understand the blood, sweat, tears, and joy that go into keeping a functioning blog online.

I started the Killer Tribes Community in 2011 because I believe 3 things:

1. EVERYONE has something valuable to say.
2. EVERYTHING is better in a healthy community.
3. a blog is THE BEST way to share and connect with others.

If you’re a blogger who would like to get as much out of blogging as you’re putting into it check out The Killer Tribes Blogger Community.

Events

We’ve done two so far: Nashville in 2012 and Atlanta in 2013.

Stay tuned this summer for the announcement of the 2014 Killer Tribes Conference.

The Backstory

I graduated from WPI (Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts) in 1998 with a degree in Chemical Engineering and spent the next 14 years working various quality assurance roles in the pharmaceutical industry.

In my free time I loved creating web sites and building communities around the things I was passionate about. This included creating online fan hubs for musicians like Caedmon’s Call and Derek Webb and for author Donald Miller.

In 2009 I focused my blog on humor and my readership grew exponentially, which provided me with opportunities to coach other bloggers in finding their voice, creating great content, and growing their communities.

A year later I launched BlogRocket, which then became Killer Tribes, a company dedicated to helping others find their fans, extend their reach, and build their tribes.

For almost two years I worked the day job in pharma while hustling on Killer Tribes in the early mornings and on weekends. Over that stretch I wrote a book, launched a conference, and built an amazing community of bloggers.

Finally, in August 2012, I was able to ditch the day job to focus solely on Killer Tribes and I haven’t looked back.

The Reason

The reason I kept the day job for so long, and the reason I hustle so hard on Killer Tribes, is to support my family.

My wife Erica and my two kids, Kylie and Parker, are pretty amazing. I’m committed to being the best husband and dad I can be for them first and foremost. They have supported me every step of the way as I’ve built up Killer Tribes, can’t thank them enough for being so awesome.

The Challenge

I’m not sure where you’re at in your journey, but chances are whatever you’re doing will be a lot more rewarding and successful if you’reĀ buildingĀ a Killer Tribe along the way.

So whether it’s adding the blog feed to your reader, joining us in the Blogger Community, or picking up some resources, jump in and get involved! I would love to serve you as you do your thing!

And if you’re not sure where to start, the best place is to sign up for the mailing list. That will keep you connected to what we’re doing here at Killer Tribes and will get you a free copy of This is NOT a Treasure Map. It’s a great place to start.
