I have talked about Triberr before as a custom Twitter client but it is much more than that. For beginners it’s a great way to help increase your reach and make blogging more fun!
Increase Your Reach With Triberr
You might have heard positive or negative things about it, or you may have not. Either way, let’s set the record straight here. Triberr is a Reach Multiplier. What it does is help bloggers get more eyes on their content. Then these eyes are could be translated to readers or customers depending on the nature of your blog.
Triberr believes in the strength in numbers. Triberr creates group of bloggers sharing each other content within their tribes.
The concept of tribes is not new. In fact Triberr was inspired by the book of Seth Godin, Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us. In the book, a tribe is describe as a group of people who are connected to one another, has a leader and has a common idea or interest. That is how Triberr works. It is a place to make new friends, new blog buddies and find other bloggers in your niche. It creates community for like-minded people.
So what’s the benefit? One good example is how I am reaching more than 200,000 Twitter users already even if I only have about 500 followers. I’m getting 400 times more reach than I original have! Granted that some of those followers are not unique you can reduce the the reach multiplier by 20% margin and still get incredible amount of reach. I am also getting retweeted more often and I get to discover new stuffs easily within my interest.
For a long time, Triberr is focused on Twitter only but that is a long long time ago. During those hay days, Triberr had made sharing automated for everyone. If you happen to follow several people from the same tribe you might be bombarded by repetitive tweets. For me it was not a problem because I use Twitter lists to manage my Twitter streams. Nonetheless, automatic sharing was highly discouraged by Twitter so in the end it was removed.
Overall, I think it is a good decision that Triberr removed automated tweets by default because you will be forced to check every post that your tribemates share and you can filter what you think is not appropriate for your audience with due diligence. Since you can also make a tribe that needs specific action or rule for just one social network like Facebook, StumbleUpon or Pinterest, a manual approval system is much more needed to ensure quality on the posts that you are sharing.
You can still semi-automate sharing but it costs a little fee and it is only approved per member, not per tribe.
If you still worry about spam, content can be filtered by disallowing promotional words that is considered spammy like free, coupon, deal, discount, giveaway and more. This can be configured per user and is applied across all tribes that you join in.
It’s getting better and better
What I like more about Triberr is that it keeps getting better and better. As more people voice out their experience and opinion about Triberr new features are added.
There is now a WordPress plugin available so that you can extend the functionality of Triberr in your blog.
There are also occasional webinars held by Dino and company that talks about what works now in social media and how it can be applied inside and outside your tribes. In fact, there is a new 2-hour webinar called “How to Pinterest for Bloggers” on April 3 at 11:00 AM to 01:00 PM EST. It will discuss how to repurpose old content for new traffic, build authority with a new audience, connect with influencers, make money with Pinterest, and much, much more.
Attendees will get early access to Pinterest button within Triberr before it is deployed globally. So what are you waiting for?
If you are completely new to Triberr you can join New Member Training every Monday at 6:00-8:00 pm CST so there really is no reason you can’t start using it.
You can also read alltriberr.com for everything Triberr.
More importantly read the bonfires (group discussions) in Triberr to interact with other bloggers, learn from the discussions and join in more tribes to increase your reach in no time.
