Editorial Reviews

Review

"Bryan's book is more than a manifesto on creating a community; it's the definitive manual for growing an online audience." - SAM DAVIDSON, author of Simplify Your Life

"I've learned so much from observing how Bryan networks with others and builds community and it all comes through in this practical, hands-on, you-can-do-this manual." - CRYSTAL PAINE, author of The Money Saving Mom's Budget

"Bryan Allain has done it again! Community Wins presents concise, proven methods to creating an online tribe." - CHAD GIBBS, author of Love Thy Rivals and God and Football

"Few people understand community building like Bryan Allain. He's done it for bands, organizations, and even his own personal blogs. Now he tells you how to do it."  - JEFF GOINS, author of Wrecked

"Community Wins is full of sharp writing and applicable ideas. It's described as an 'action-oriented workbook' and the shoe absolutely fits." - SCOTT MCCLELLAN, director of the ECHO Conference and author of Tell Me a Story (March 2013)

I started this book last night with the intention of spreading out the read over the course of the next 5 days or so. Turns out, I only needed two. Community Wins by Bryan Allain is about as practical as it gets. Unlike many other books along the lines of tribe building, Bryan delves deep into his personal experiences (even giving the example of re-prioritizing projects so he could get Community Wins done first which is like eBook Inception or something) and pulls out not only practical insights, but a whole slew of applicable questions and practices for the reader to create their own winning community.

The book is constructed in a workbook format in order to be the most helpful tool it can be. With 21 chapters, there's plenty of application to go around and with this insightful manual in hand, you can be well on your way to creating a thriving tribe of your own. I take notes on almost every book I pick up and I can't tell you the last time I took 5 pages of notes on one title. In two nights with Community Wins, I finished with 12 pages filled. If 12 pages of newfound insights aren't enough to jumpstart any project, then I don't know what is.

Community Wins was a fantastic, practical, and actively applicable read. I 6 Star recommend it. Amazon's holding me down.

(Just beware of the giant man-eating raccoons that Bryan subliminally hid in the text. He told me himself. But you should be good)

I don't normally write reviews. But when you encounter resources you believe can assist in the growth not just of yourself but many, many others, you simply have to share that with others. `Community Wins', the new e-book from Bryan Allain, author of '31 days to finding your blogging mojo' and creator of `Killer Tribes', is such a resource.

In a direct but positive way, Allain gives anyone attempting to grow a blog, website or platform of any kind a set of directions to building not just community, but online community. Much of it is taken from his own experiences of building communities, running conferences and juggling them a full-time job - and he has lessons which all of us need to hear.

Allain understands the importance of community in making a difference. None of us can go through life on our own, and we cannot make an impact on our own either. Allain gets this completely, and proceeds to show us exactly how we can both build community and make an impact.

What really makes `Community Wins' stand out is not simply in it's short, easy-to-follow chapters. It comes when Allain at the end of each chapter invites the reader to take on challenges of their own.

To answer difficult questions about the relevant topic.

Big questions, which demand honest answers.

The book demands you engage with it. It expects you to respond, not simply sit down and take it all in. If a person is to get the full benefit of this book, you have no option but to participate and engage with it.

Without doubt, I have learned more from fully engaging with this book than I ever would simply from just reading it and putting it down.

Allain hits you head on with questions like

"What drives me to get my ideas out there?

I titled my review "Firecracker" because this book may be small, but it packs a big bang for your buck.
I have read several books on the same topic and they have been useful. What I liked about Community Wins is the practical nature of the information.
There is a fabulous balance of inspiration and application. Anyone who has little or no knowledge about how to create a platform or find their own "tribe" will be guided in ways to start effectively. For the experienced, there is a whole new dimension for them to explore in what it means to go "deep", "wide" or even "higher" in their growth.
So, don't just take it from me, get your own copy and "get your read" on--you won't be disappointed!

I just finished Bryan Allain's ebook, Community Wins: 21 Thoughts on Building a Thriving Online Tribe, and if you like thought provoking questions along with action items for the thoughts, then this is a book for you. I got it because I'm interested in blogging better, connecting with you my readers, and creating a community of folks who can chat about various topics.

This book has great questions to prompt your own growth, and words of wisdom on how to avoid some pitfalls. My favorite question was, "where do you want to be in three years?" This kind of question has always made me squeamish in the past, as my life was too chaotic to give an answer I felt confident in. Now, however, I am confident in saying, that I'd like to be at peace with my disability, helping others get through the trials of learning a new normal after debilitating illness, and possibly, though I am rather shy, publicly speaking about meningitis fall out and the importance of early testing, vaccination, and aftercare. So, that's where I'm going in the future, and I hope you can come along for the fantastic ride. Some words of wisdom that Allain shared was to give yourself deadlines.

Deadlines help you to avoid the I can do this tomorrow trap and the perfectionism trap. Both of those traps hinder me a lot! I have been caught by the tomorrow trap since August, well, September on some paperwork I need to write and send off by February at the very latest. I need to give myself an earlier deadline than the end of the year, my current deadline, if I'm to break free of this hamstrung trap. So, I promise that I will finish the paperwork by Monday, December 16, 2013.
