What Is A Micro-Community
A self-sustaining online group of individuals with a single focused purpose and audience for digital marketing collaboration.
It is made up of various roles and guidelines that allow the members to have an amazing content marketing presence without the enormous effort of doing it all themselves.
Each member of the tribe has a role and expertise that serves the greater good of the group, both internally and externally.
Like a tribe, no one person is given the bulk of responsibilities to sustain the group, it is a symbiotic relationship between all members and their defined purpose to benefit the audience and their fellow members.

Organized Laser-Focused Content
The organized, laser-focused mindset of micro-communities will create a subnet on the Internet.
