How I use Triberr and how you should too!

How I use Triberr and how you should too!

How you use something determines if you’re going to have success with it.

If you’re good at using a gun, you won’t have problem finding something for dinner!

The same concept works hand in hand in utilizing social media.

Triberr has brought to the social media world a sense of community and  has given us a greater chance to get our content shared across the social media world.

Should you know how to use Triberr effectively, you can get the world out of it!

Here’s how I do it and how you can follow!

 

I joined as many tribes as possible.

Tribes make up the core function of Triberr. While saying Triberr, even its name has the word “Tribe” in it!

As we talk more about Triberr, Triberr is a community made up of smaller tribes. All of the people on there are apart of some tribe.

At the very beginning your job is to weave into any tribe. For me the beginning was a slow process to get into any; that was back then when Triberr was getting bigger.

Maybe now it has gotten easier to get into tribes. Nevertheless, if it is still hard for someone to get into one, I have a plan that you can follow.

I was very active on Facebook and Twitter at the time (I still am) and was sure some of my connections were already using Triberr. I contacted a few them on Facebook and asked if they were tribe owners.

Another way I found to join a tribe is to get in contact with the chief. Start communicating with him and while in conversation with him, stick it in there that you are interested in joining his tribe.

How to find out who is the chief of a tribe, go to a tribe.

Then,

 

Select “Members”:

Identify a column that says “Role” and the chief will be listed in the very first row. In this case, Erik is the chief of this tribe.

I created an enticing profile.

First impression is the key since it is usually the very last one on the Internet.

It’s very easy for one to turn away and click to another website.

That’s why I advise every social media profile you have created display unique graphics as well as the profile descriptions are full of your complete information.

Give people a reason to follow and in our case, share your content on Triberr.

For my profile, I made sure I added my own “header” image:

If you own a blog or site, the logo of your brand will give them the first, right impression about what you do.

It also gives you the “unique” look that attracts the others.

The second “look” aspect I would optimize for my profile would be your stats, reach, and the number of connections:

triberr numbers

I know this something you can’t control directly, but overtime this will become a very important indicator whether they follow and share.

Keep sharing and asking around to join more tribes and the numbers will slowly go up.

The last thing to do is fill out your description and connect all of your social media accounts. (Description should be as long and descriptive as possible.)

Participated in tribe Discussions.

As long as there is a group involved, discussion is a mighty presence.

Nothing shows more activity when someone is actively involved in conversation. That’s the same way as it goes for a forum or a Google+ community.

Remember, engagement is going to take you farther than any other activity on the Internet.

As you comment and engage with other tribe members, you are building reputation.

At the same time you are also building “awareness”. Engagement raises more “awareness” for your image which is a perfect substance to add to your sharing strategy.

Every time they see your face now in the stream, they won’t be so unusually fast to skip your post. Recognizing your face from all of the discussions you participated in, they will be like, “Ouhh, I know that guy!”

 

I Comment on the articles in Triberr.

With the new design that Triberr rolled with recently, I am seeing more commentary and opinions added to the comments area of each post int he stream.

Dedicated a space to right of the screen, the column of  ”Live Conversations” are comments posted on each article:

live conversations triberr

 

If you’re looking to become an active Triberr user, you should be considering this panel right now.

Remember this, wherever you are, you’re trying to build “self-awareness” alongside the powerful action of engagement.

My initial strategy was to read, share, and comment on at least five articles a day.

That didn’t last too long!

I got a hold of about three or two articles a day instead, which was still something being done rather than nothing.

Along with the other handful of discussions I was a part of, I made time to read, comment, and share some of the articles in the Triberr stream.

Many will take notice of your activity. In return they might take a peek of your profile to see who you really are.

On a surprising note, not too many replied to my comments. But that’s ok because we are “well-aware” of the other significant factors that we just discussed.

 

Share, everyday, a handful of Articles from the Triberr stream.

Bottom line if you don’t share, you won’t get shares.

If you want something done for you, you will need to do something for them first.

Sharing is the whole key to working with Triberr. Sharing other’s content to your social media profiles will get you the shares and results from using Triberr correctly.

From my observations content on Triberr gets shared the most to Twitter. Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn are some of the other sites that content gets shared too but not so much.

Nothing like Twitter!

Starting from this point forward was my little system I created that helped me share as much as I could from Triberr. You can use this system for yourself and have confidence that you will see some excellent results like I did!

 

Step #1

Look for an article and select “Manually Share”:

manuallyshare triberr

Step #2

Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook – We will use Buffer for that. In the meantime don’t forget to share to Google+:

google plus share

Step #3

Click the Twitter icon to share to the rest of our intended social media profiles (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn):

twitter share buffer

Step #4

Click on Buffer:

click twitter buffer

All of this can be easily done by making sure you setup an account with Buffer and connected the appropriate social media profiles.

Fill up your Buffer account everyday with the articles you share from Triberr.

Doing this everyday has given me a big chance to accomplish all of my sharing that I wanted to do.

    Hi Samuel, good post about Triberr and as a fellow Triberr user I can vouch for everything you’ve said.. Triberr is a great platform to meet bloggers in your niche and find useful posts to share to your social streams..It’s a gift of a tool..

    • Samuel Pustea

      I am nothing but in agreement with what you said Robert!

      It is more like a gift rather than anything else.

      Thanks for your comment! :)

  2. Reginald

    Hi Samuel,

    Damn! You nailed it mate. Well written and yes, I got to agree that the ‘reach’ really attracts people. I have yet to do much with my Tribe and hopefully, will be able to be more active there.

    Thanks for your tips mate.

    • Samuel Pustea

      Thank you for the support Reginald!

      Yes, the “reach/numbers” is one of those things that attracts me as well!

    Great post Samuel – I love Triberr and I don’t believe I have the buffer connected, something I will do very shortly. I’m in around 50 tribes and have been thinking of cutting back so I don’t have to go through such a long stream. There are some unrelated bloggers there but I have to visit each tribe to analyze it deeply. Dino and his partner are awesome too when it comes to customer service for Triberr!

    • Samuel Pustea

      Nice to see you having success on there.

      Joining too many tribes is not always the best thing to do.

      Thanks for visiting and commenting on my article Lisa!

  4. Tom Jamieson

    Hi Samuel, this is a really great write up on Triberr. I get a lot of shares from it which leads to Twitter being the #1 referral platform for my posts. I have also met a lot of bloggers in my niche as well thanks to Triberr. I should start using Buffer though, so thanks for the heads up on that one. Have a great day!

    • Samuel Pustea

      True, Triberr has lead to many tweets of my posts.

      Buffer is one of the best to work with alongside Triberr.

      Thanks for the comment Tom!

    Thanks for this. I’m brand new here and didn’t have a clue as to how to get started. This was really valuable.
