This week, I have mostly been hanging out on Triberr – my new favourite social media tool. Don’t know what Triberr is? Worry not, I am here to introduce you to the next best thing in social media automation and networking.
What is Triberr?
Triberr.com is an online community and social networking platform that will help you to increase your social media reach. You join or create tribes, which are groups of people with similar interests, who mutually share each other’s blog content.
Here’s how Triberr Works
Firstly, you need to register as a member on the website. Follow the process and enter your blog and social media account details. Then you can click on settings and input your profile with a picture (upload) and a description.
You then need to link your Triberr account to your blogs, and you can have up to two on a free account. Click on the second tab to insert your blog URLs. Next, click on the third tab and add your social media accounts – Twitter, Facebook and Linked In.
Now you are ready to Join Tribes or Start your own!
What is a tribe? A tribe is a group of people who share the blog interests who join together as a group, and mutually share each others blog content.
That means, if you are a member of a travel blog tribe, for example, you can get your content out to other travel bloggers’ Twitter accounts as well as your own. In addition, you can share other articles that you like giving you more social media content, and allowing you to promote your ‘tribe mates’ work.
Joining Tribes on Triberr
Click on the ‘tribes’ link at the top of your Triberr account, and you will get a page that allows you to add your own tribe, or explore new tribes. I recommend starting your own tribe and also following and becoming a member of one or two tribes while you get used to the way that it works.
Remember that you might not be able to become a member of a tribe immediately – follow and share first of all. After a couple of weeks, when you have shared content, Triberr will message the chief and ask them to make you a full member. Once you are a full member, that’s when your blog posts will appear in the Tribe’s newsfeed and get shared by others (Make sure that in settings, you allocate the correct blog to the correct Tribe).
When you are used to working in two or three tribes, you can then join a few more and really extend your network. I’m now a member of about 20 different Tribes!
Join my Social Media Tribe!
If you blog about social media and WordPress, why not join my Social Media Tribe? Follow this link and share. If you have over 1000 Twitter followers, you will be upgraded to a full member after a couple of weeks.
Upgrading to a Paid Triberr Account
If you want to link more blogs and social media accounts, it might be worth considering upgrading to a paid account on Triberr.With Prime Lite, you get to link four blogs (rather than 2 on the basic). If you manage several blogs and social media accounts for clients, you could go for Prime.
