Killer Tribes Conference Reviews

posted by Bryan Allain — May 21, 2012 — 7 Comments

Hard to believe it’s been almost two months since the Killer Tribes Conference went down, but as I was looking through some photos this weekend I was reminded of what a great time it was. Still can’t believe so many of you made the trek out to Nashville for my first event!

You already know I had a great time putting the event on, but what did the attendees think? Here’s a quick trip around the interwebs to see what other folks thought of the event:

Thanks to PichaGlobal and Melissa Hillier for posting most of these photos.

Joseph Craven at The Greatest Blog of All Time:¬† “The Conference was wonderful. There were awesome people to hang out with, cool speakers, funny Tripp and Tyler moments…It was fascinating to finally meet all of the internet people I wanted to meet, and even more amazing that a few of you actually wanted to meet ME.”

Leigh Kramer at LeighKramer.com: “Killer Tribes was easily the best conference I’ve ever attended…it was the perfect combination of content and connection.”

Dave Lukas at WarriorDave.com: “…it was an absolutely amazing and life reaffirming experience! So much good energy, good people, good coffee, good conversation, and genuine connection that it was overwhelming at times. I would go again in a heartbeat!”

Killer Tribes Promos, The Outtakes

posted by Bryan Allain — April 10, 2012 — 4 Comments

I flew down to Atlanta in January to collaborate with YouTube sensations Tripp & Tyler. Our goal was to craft the perfect promo video for Killer Tribes.

It didn’t happen.

Not even close, actually.

And while you may have seen the nine promo videos we did end up getting out of this process, here’s some of what we had to go through to get there.

Many thanks to Tripp & Tyler for making these happen!

PS…If you wrote up a recap of the Killer Tribes Conference link to it here in the comments so I can collect them all and share them in one place.


21 Thoughts on Killer Tribes

posted by Bryan Allain — April 4, 2012 — 38 Comments

I was back at work yesterday, but I’m still processing everything from the weekend.

So much to unpack, but here’s my initial 21 thoughts from Killer Tribes…

1. I was worried that having the meetup at a coffee joint instead of a beer joint would stifle interaction. Was dead wrong about that. You could barely hear yourself talk above the sound of folks talking and laughing. (But yeah, next time I should have name tags.)

2. I slept fine the night before the conference. It was the night after that I had trouble. Once my head hit the pillow on Saturday night I started processing everything that had happened that day. Took me at least 2 hours to fall asleep.

3. During my Q&A with Derek Webb I was worried that we were losing folks because of how in-depth we were getting with some of our topics. But then all I heard about for the next 24 hours was how amazing Derek was. Kind of wish we would have gone an extra 20 minutes. Maybe I can find a reason to have Derek back again.

(thanks to @melissahillier for the photo)

4. Crosspoint Church was an amazing group to work with from start to finish.

5. Sarah Mae threw out her talk the night before and then went out and killed it on stage. At just 20 minutes she might have provided the most punch per minute, but ALL of the presenters were amazing. Thank you to all of you for delivering like I knew you would.

The Amazing Sponsors of Killer Tribes

posted by Bryan Allain — March 21, 2012 — 2 Comments

I’ve got four sponsors for my Killer Tribes Conference next week and I want you to know about them. Why? Because they stepped out and took a risk with me and my new conference when no one else would. That right there earns them a discount double check (and some major respect points).

Each of these sponsors is unique in its own way. Here’s why you should pay attention to what they are doing.

Mendmark – My friend Hunter runs this company and makes some of the best t-shirts currently in my closet. You’ve probably seen the logo or the name on Tyler Stanton’s Blog or at RagamuffinSoul.com. Hunter has a day job like I do. This company is his passion, but not his main source of income right now, and yet he still reached out to help with the conference. Love That.

You can support Mendmark by picking up one of their t-shirts, bracelets, or decals. Seriously, the two t-shirts I have from them not only look great, but they fit really well and are very comfortable. I wouldn’t steer you wrong, my peoples!

Food For The Hungry – Why does an organization that’s been around for over 40 years sponsor a conference that didn’t exist 6 months ago? Because they get it. They understand how important it is to be connected digitally and in real life, and they are all about extending their reach so they can feed as many hungry people as possible.

There are many ways you can be a part of what this organization is doing, from sponsoring specific children to doing a short-term or a long-term missionary trip in a developing country. If you’ve got a heart to do more, even if it’s just to put their logo on your blog to help raise awareness, email me for more info (bryanATkillertribesDOTcom). These are great people doing great things, and I can’t think of a better place to get involved.

Faith Village – There’s 2 things I know about faith village: 1) Every time I check out the Faith Village website they’ve added something new and 2) Every person I’ve connected with at Faith Village has been awesome. That’s why when they told me they’d like to come on as sponsors of Killer Tribes I wasn’t that surprised. They are on the cutting edge.

Their current site is in Beta right now, and it’s really hard to explain what it is without going there yourself (in a good way). It’s part social network, part newsstand, part community, part blog hub. Folks I respect like Tor Constantino, Mary DeMuth, Tony Alicea, and Tracee Persiko are already involved as contributors, and when the site fully launches later in the year I know it’s going to generate some buzz. Check it for yourself and get a good seat on the bandwagon.

Picha – What if there was an easy way to sell your pictures? (I mean really easy.) Imagine an app that let you share all of your pictures, set the licensing options exactly like you wanted them, set the prices you wanted to sell them for, and direct exactly where you wanted the money to go to using Paypal (your wallet, your favorite charity, etc.)

That’s what Picha is, and it’s probably going to revolutionize the online photo industry. So proud to have them as one of our sponsors. Check out their site to see their amazing intro video and to sign up, right now it’s invitation only to be a part, so sign up there to get your invite.

Killer Tribes would not be happening without these sponsors, many thanks to them for standing with me on this event.

If you’ve got any questions or you’re interested in learning more about them, check out their websites or shoot me an email.
