  • Passion is very strong interest. Passion is the heartbeat of the community – very few people write about topics in great volumeInfluencers are people who are interested in the topic and are influencers in a larger community(ie – cooking with lavendarblogger (passion), homeopathic medicine interest (influencers) – larger community of natural remedies/diets)
  • When one starts with small niches the presumption is often that the numbers are too small to matter. However, strong communities grow organically as you can see with the HonoluluMarathon. Equally important is the fact that they interconnect with other communities. People have multiple interests and the overlap is where richness and relevance (for consumers) can be found.

  • This is Roy Choi. He lives in LA and used to be a chef at high-end restaurants. But now he’s a successful entrepreneur. Let me tell you what he did. And also what those giant tubs of meat are.
  • One day a friend of his came to him with an idea. They were going to sell tacos. But no any taco. Korean-bbq type tacos. Call it a mexicanfushion dish. How do you make a Korean BBQ Taco successful?
  • First you start selling them out of a truck. And second, you keep moving the truck around so nobody really knows where you are. Does it sound like a recipe for success yet?
  • Twitter! Roy and his staff use Twitter to tell their Twitter followers where they’re going to be and when. They also use it to stay in touch, take suggestions for locations and more. And as a result, they have created a huge fanbase.
