Marketing Tools - Triberr
To use Triberr you need a blog and a twitter account. At the heart of Triberr, it uses Twitter to broadcast your blog articles on the Internet. So what makes Triberr different? It's a sharing platform, giving you access to a broader audience.
Triberr has its own terminology. When you join, you become a tribe of one, but you need to seek out other members who have similar blogging interests so you can join their tribe. Joining a tribe costs "bones." (Triberr money) You get 100 bones when you join and I understand there are opportunities to earn bones as well, or you can buy them.
I joined Triberr, filled in my bio, added my Twitter account and plugged in my blog's URL. I joined a few tribes and learned I have a reach of over 30,000.
The bulk of the work is done in the "tribal stream." You'll see your blogs along with blogs from your tribe mates. Click "approve" and Triberr will release these as "Tweets" on Twitter in 20 minute increments. If you've got a tribe of 10 people and you're all tweeting each other's posts, then you've expanded your reach.
A note: Tweets sent by Triberr have a "goo.gl" signature.
That's Triberr in a nutshell. It's a social marketing tool that expands the number of people you can reach on the net. 5 minutes a day (to approve posts of your tribe mates) on a consistent basis should give you opportunities you may not have had before. You don't have to hang out on Triberr like you do on FB, Yahoo Groups, or Twitter, but it can be effective once you learn the ropes.
Any questions, comments, feedback, tips about Triberr are welcomed.
