Grow your audience and increase brand awareness with Triberr

Triberr Review: The Definition, Advantages And Disadvantages

Triberr is a blog amplification and content discovery platform.

Triberr sends over two million visits monthly to their blog members – Traffic Generation Cafe

For me, I didn’t know what the hell Triberr is until last month and yes, I discovered it pretty late. Well, better late than never right?

It all came down to one day where Adam Connell hit me on email that I should consider joining it if I want to be a better blogger. Okay, he’s a marketing man and thus, I knew exactly where he was coming and what he thought Triberr was.

Since I am always trying to increase my social engagement than just plain SEO, I said why not and got myself registered within 5 minutes. The whole process of setting up my complete profile was about 15 minutes since I integrated it with Facebook and Twitter. Lazy me!

Welcome to the world of Triberr!

Triberr is one of the best social engagement platform for bloggers
What’s your first impression of Triberr? Here’s mine 🙂

When I first got into Triberr’s dashboard, I had this in mind (seriously), “What the !@#$ had I just landed myself to?”.

I’m a lazy dude at times and I was hoping for a more detailed ‘get started tutorial’. Well, to my despair, there ain’t much guidance on how to navigate. Remember, this is a new account and thus, I have zero tribe.

The next option? I decided to hit the search button and search for blogging keyword.

It came up a few hits and I felt that was cool since I’m able to see the number of members, reach outs etc. When I saw the number of reach outs, my mind got straight into marketing mindset (thanks Adam!).

You know … 12,000 reach outs means 12,000 potential readers! I was drooling all over my keyword. Not really 🙂

I decided to join a few tribes which good number of reach outs. <— This is wrong guys. Don’t go here. Tell you more below!

Okay, joining was easy and I was in the tribe. Good but what’s next? I decided to say hello and after a few hours, nothing came back. Not even a single “Hi”.

What?!

Now, reality kicks in and I decided to search for some info on how Triberr works. Hey, don’t judge me! I’m also human, you know?!

I decided to change my moves and joined tribes which are best fit my interest; blogging, marketing and SEO. Now, this is where it all makes the difference!

Comments were pouring in faster and better. I get a reply for nearly every ‘shout’ I did and that’s fabulous! There’s no better place than a lively place right?

Help! I don’t want to stay in zombieland!

How to make Triberr work for you?

Now, this is probably the 10th article you read about Triberr. No? Don’t matter about it and lets make this reading count!

Triberr is all about blog marketing, discussion and social shares. Good thing is Triberr will import in your blog articles and allow you to share with the rest of your tribe mates. Pretty good for a free service right?

On a free account, you can basically ‘approve’ a maximum of 100 posts per day. You also have the option to share the articles on social media as well. A huge, huge plus one for social engagement if you ask me.

You had just joined Triberr and wondering how to make it work for you right? The answer is, there ain’t an easy way out for this. You need to build your reputation … yes from scratch!

Depending on what you have in mind, the steps might be different. I’ll try to cover as much as possible here so that you’re not leaving empty handed!

Triberr offers huge advantage to bloggers and writers to grow your website audience
What’s the essence to make Triberr work for you?

1. Joint the right tribe that suits your niche

I think this is the most important of all. There ain’t any point joining a tribe that doesn’t relate to you or your writing. Yes, the tribe may have a huge reach outs but there isn’t any use if no one is going to read it.

To say Triberr as a huge blogging platform could be an understatement since they are sending out millions of blog traffic per month. Opportunity is always there for you to grab it and therefore, you need to plan your move carefully.

I doesn’t have much time and therefore, I decide to be active on several tribes only. Furthermore, I have just started my own tribe, Blogging Moments and my personal suggestion, you got to take a look at it right now.

Don’t worry, the link will automatically open a new tab for you and I’ll wait 🙂

Disclaimer: The tribe is brand new so bear with me!

2. Focus on small but quality tribes

If you want to grow in Triberr, you have to focus on quality, not quantity. This means that you need to ensure that the tribes you join is active, related niche and most importantly, the willingness to share.

Joining these tribes would actually make it more worthwhile for your time and giving your more satisfaction. Trust me!

Quality tribes usually have tribe members who will share your articles and give feedback which can help you (and your website) to improve, overtime. What’s the point of joining a tribe who does zero shares and provide no discussion right?

If you want to join a good tribe, you need to do some homework first in advance. Knowing what the tribe is all about is more than just important to grow your brand, name and of course, link building.

3. Take the opportunity to connect with others

Triberr is a great place to meet up with fellow bloggers. It doesn’t matter the rank, popularity etc. At Triberr, everyone is basically equal and grab this ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ opportunity to say hello!

I like to use Triberr to work for me … especially when it comes to connecting people. How would I start? This is the rule of thumb I always use:

  • Join a tribe
  • Say hello and a little intro about yourself
  • Share a link of your website (just one)
  • Share links of other members on social social media
  • Share valuable information with them on both Triberr and social media as well

If you are a new or inexperienced blogger who looking for some exposure, Triberr is the gateway for you to build your brand from scratch.

4. Auto RSS syndication

Why I love Triberr? Remember that you got to connect your blog’s RSS feed to Triberr? Whenever a new post is detected on your RSS, it gets submitted to every one of your tribemates’ stream.

Makes sense?

Let’s say you wrote a new post and it goes live on your site. When your RSS feeds get updated, Triberr will syndicate and make the article visible on your tribe.

Now, imagine this. You have 10 active tribe members who will always share good information. You’re going to increase the chances of getting more social shares in return. Keep in mind that social shares play an important role when it come search engine optimization ranking.

What makes Triberr doesn’t work for you?

I know a few bloggers who ditch Triberr less than a week there. Some says Triberr is not worth the time while others say that the experience isn’t great. So, is Triberr really that bad?

[Triberr] it’s a wonderful premise. In a world less centered around teaching our kids not to share hairbrushes, car rides, the air we breathe it would work out great. Lately, however, not so much for me and triberr. I’ve noticed a marked lack of reciprocal sharing. I share others’ posts. They don’t share mine. Week after week, nothing changes. I share. They don’t. To be quite frank, I’ve been feeling a little used – Katrina Joyner

Before I quit using Triberr, I decided to take some responsibility regarding how I was choosing to use it. I stopped sharing all of my tribemates’ posts, and took the retribution from some choosing not to share mine anymore either. I began to see Triberr as a curation tool. I did have a lot of great bloggers in my tribes, so instead of blaming Triberr for how I used it, I started to regard it as a safe keeping spot for blogs I intended to read – Amy McCloskey Tobin

So, what really makes Tribber ‘tough’ to use?

Is Triberr really worth it?
Triberr pissed some people off. Why??!

1. Human perception

Taking myself for instance. I dashed into Triberr thinking to create magic and within 5 minutes, I was slapped with the big fail sign. The cause? Yup, you got it right – my own perception.

Human always want to go the easy way … or at least, we try to go easy. The fact is nothing comes easy and same goes to making a mark at Triberr.

If you think that Triberr is a place to make fast connections, then you’re absolutely wrong. Here’s the cold hard fact; there’s no place on earth that offers you fast ‘minute to fame’. If you want to be popular or successful, start getting your hands dirty.

Triberr is a platform, not a tool to create link building. It does great assisting hardworking and determined people to build lasting relationships 🙂

2. Taking and not giving

Life is all about giving and taking. You know … like yin and yang?

In Triberr, you got to act and think like a reader. This means that if you like the post, comment on it and share it if the article is worth while. The more you share and comment, the more you are telling the world that you are alive and … yes, brand awareness.

As a free Triberr member, you would have 100 ‘points’ to share articles and why don’t you use the maximum of its capability? I don’t use all honestly. I only share those who fits my niche and the ones I read. At least, I’m not abusing the system right?

Most people doesn’t get much traffic from Triberr because they aren’t sharing. If you are not visible to others, then you won’t be anyway closer to increase your backlinks and relationship with others.

3. Is exploring your cup of tea?

For me Triberr is no clear cut. This means that from the outer look, it looks plain simple. Nothing big deal about it and this is where most bloggers fall apart.

There are probably many guides out there which offers you the right way to grow with Triberr (including mine). What told and written by me might not work perfectly well for you. You got to adjust, modify and work out plans to grow your social engagement level. Basically, putting your Internet marketing skills to work. Here are some of the must-have Internet marketing tools to help you start on the right foot.

4. Please … no salesman allowed

When it comes to Triberr, no one likes affiliate sales. However, here’s the thin line for that. You need to make sure you are not sharing a sales page or an article full of affiliate links.

Most bloggers does it wrongly because they tend to share sales pages etc and when that doesn’t bring them any sales, they tend to be demotivated and felt Triberr is bad.

Consider this, we are all human and we love reading something useful. Honestly, do you mind reading an article which has 0.5% density for affiliate link? I bet you don’t right?

The point is this: You got to know what you can and what you can’t share on Triberr. Keeping a good reputation is important for your success at Triberr.

My personal opinion about Triberr (plus Slideshare presentation)

 

Hate it or love it, Triberr is here to stay. I wouldn’t advice you should write it off (but I knew some who does that) at least for now. It is a great platform to share information, guides and build lasting relationships.

Personally, I think Triberr is worth it … regardless if you are using the free account like I do or you’re a Prime member. It is an excellent tool for those who want to create brand awareness and even, publicity (in a good way). Besides that, Triberr has more options such as reblog feature which I have yet to try out.

The only downside? There are many members who actually uses it as a stepping stone to grow their audience. If you want to avoid them, you got to choose your tribe or tribe mates carefully. Joining a wrong tribe will cause you lots of problem in the future.

As the saying goes, the Triberr experience lies in YOU!

  1. Hi Reginald,

    Awesome post indeed 🙂

    I think you wrote ALL there was to know about Triberr so well in here. Yes indeed, joining the tribes that relate to your content and which you know you too can share with your followers is the key. However, because of the vast niche I have, which I’m slowly expanding, I’m part of nearly 35 tribes (I think!) with a reach of now 13M, but as you rightly mentioned – all of this wasn’t easy! And yes, I still need to start my tribe, which I will pretty soon too now.

    Things always take time and patience, and so does Triberr, but you slowly learn the ways and how to go about things. When I’d started I too didn’t have much of an idea, but slowly started joining tribes related to my niche and thereafter have just been getting invitations to join tribes now. I really don’t look for more because the reach is too huge already.

    I agree, many tribesmate don’t share my posts, and that’s a common problem, unless the Chief of a tribe keeps a good watch and some of them do that too, and they make it a rule that each one much share each others posts, so people mostly follow that. Still there are exceptions, and in such cases, I now know who will and who won’t share my posts, so I too don’t share theirs, except once in a while to tap on them.

    Oh…I really couldn’t read ALL my tribesmate’s posts, but I do share them all, except the ones who post so many times a day, those are a real put off for me. Triberr surely rocks, and I’ve just seen my Tweets, and followers increase with time. I’d love to join your tribe too, though I hope you are alright with my kind of vast niche that covers a lot. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

    1. Hi Harleena.

      Thank you for your generous shares and comment 🙂 Means a lot to me.

      I’m at with like 5 tribes now with one of my own one and heck, I’m having problem coping up! Jesus 🙂 So many things to read especially when I joined tribes with the same niche. Tons of reading to do! <--- This is good. I use to read about 3 articles before bed 😀Yes, in fact, it is hard to find tribe mates to do the same thing back (sharing) but again, what we can do about it right? I usually try to share as much as possible a few times a day to be fair for the rest. Lots of crazy work huh.And what?! Reach of 13M? Jesus Christ! Man, I'm so jealous now. Haha!Hey Harleena, thanks for everything and making my day much brighter. Take care and talk to you soon.Reginald

  2. Thanks for the post Reginald!
    Triberr sounds like a great place! I’m not a member yet. For now I just want to make some connections and relationships on social media with other bloggers and of course to build up my blog. It will help me (I hope) when I decide to create my first tribe!

    1. Hey Branko,

      You are most welcome and glad you liked it. Triberr is a great place to start if you are new and looking for some connections. Running a tribe is crazy! Hard to maintain and it is even harder to find good followers 🙂

      Nonetheless, wish you all the best and thanks for dropping by!

      Thanks for dropping by and take care!

      Reginald

  4. well it is also going to be same for me too:
    BETTER LATE THAN NEVER
    I have only heard about tribber through your article and it seems to me quite useful.
    I shall surely give it a try.

  5. Ganesh Narayan Gupta

    Hi Reginald,
    Well, it is first post I am reading about TRIBERR and I have joined it and joined you too before this comment. You have explained triberr in a well mannerd way before joining me to the network that will make my path much easier. I hope triberr will be a good platform for me.

    1. Hi Ganesh,

      Glad this work out for you well 🙂 Or at least I tried!

      Haha..right. Triberr is fun but if you are joining too many tribes, you might get ‘lost’. Drop me a line if you need any help. Would try to help any way possible 😀

      Reginald

    1. Hey Sumanth,

      Thanks for that. Appreciate your comment and on top of everything, glad you find this useful!

      I was so worried it wasn’t complete 🙂

      Take care mate.

      Reginald

      1. Hi Reginald! I’ve yet to start using tribber. You produce really good, informative articles. Do you write your own content, I also love your choice of pictures. Great post!

        1. Hi Nicole!

          Thanks for the comment and yes, I write them all myself. Yet to do guest post but there’s a few who had already applied 🙂

          Triberr is great and I finally hit my 1M reach. Man that is tough to cope up! The more I’m with Triberr, the more I’m loving it. I am so close to get Prime but the monthly payment is a bit … not my taste. Until this site hit PR 3, I’m going no where with Prime. Haha!

          Who knows right? That is the current plane right now though.

          Talk to you soon!

          Reginald

  6. Hi Reginald,

    What an amazing write up. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with your audience. I’ve learned a TON about the perception of Triberr to a first time user, and we’ll incorporate tis into future developments.

    Dino
    Founder of Triberr

    1. Hi Dino!

      Wow! Thank you for visiting my humble site. Hope you liked it 🙂

      I’m glad this article is able to contribute at least a bit in your future developments. Triberr is more than just a platform and thus, I really hope (and pray) for your success in the future.

      I bet many people are happy with Triberr and that is definitely good to hear. Please keep up the good work!

      Reginald

  7. Hi Reginald,

    Interesting indeed and I see the tips are very useful for ones who wanna make more out of Triberr mate 🙂

    There are so different views about Triberr. Well, I got one too. I believe every tool has a specific and useful purpose but we people tend to abuse them. Of course, perspectives matter in this scenario.

    I’m quite new to Triberr and most recently join via a request of my friend. Else I never thought of joining even I knew it. Since then I’ve got few more tribe invitations from my friends in there too. Reach is 300K or something. Impressed? I like it a bit, but not impressed though.

    I find it’s really a great platform for conversations, finding content and networking. But I do prefer social media and feed reader for that purpose. I really do. One thing I don’t like about Triberr is that ability to share posts without even reading ’em. I know, marketers love it as it promotes ’em. Well, I should be happy for getting more shares but that’s not me 😀 See, perception matters.

    Most of ’em I come to contact with are bloggers I know and visit their blogs to comment and share. But for other bloggers who kind enough to share my posts, I just return the favor there even by going beyond my principles.

    Actually, I tend not to join in many communities and groups mate. I ditched all that I don’t wanna in lately too. I think I need more time for my priorities and goals 🙂 May be I can use your tips when I’m ready to dedicate more of my time to Triberr. I sure will if I could spend more time on Triberr 🙂

    You have a wonderful weekend Reginald! 🙂

    Cheers…

    1. Hi Mayura.

      Thanks for dropping by. I noticed many people are still very new to Triberr. However, it’s good that you are already using it. Hey, that’s a first step right? 🙂

      I prefer social media and that’s for sure. Feed, not too much though. Weird me. And yes, I can’t agree more with you especially when you said about reading without sharing. That’s like … lazy man’s job right? 😉

      Appreciate your comment and feedback in this mate. Anyway, wish you have a great weekend too *hint* need some beer!

      Take care mate.

      Reginald

  8. Hey Reginald,

    Well I’m a huge lover of Triberr and I can also say you did it right by reaching out and chatting with tribe owners. I know you reached out to me and I have people who want to join my tribes all the time but I really prefer to stay within my niche.

    What people have to understand is that sharing people’s content is a great thing to do. We don’t all only have to share what’s in our niche. Like I love Harleena’s blog and she writes a lot about self development and I find that interesting. Mixing things up from time to time is good but do it too much and your followers are going to go and follow someone else.

    Joining tribes to get a huge reach is one thing but be specific with who you join. I don’t share all of my tribemates posts because a good bit of them are not in my niche and I personally don’t care for what they share.

    It’s a fabulous platform to meet new bloggers, connect with new faces and join some tribes that will share your content. Learn how to get around in Triberr, just take the time to learn. It’s not really that hard if you nose around a big and it’s so worth the time.

    Dino and Dan did a fabulous job with Triberr so those that aren’t a part of it are really missing out. Thanks for this great review.

    ~Adrienne

    1. Hi Adrienne,

      Thanks for dropping by and sharing your input. Like what you said, Triberr is a good place for relationship building and making more friends. It is always great to see readers and writers who are willing to share articles around. I didn’t know I can find so many under one roof!

      I am doing the same method as yours Adrienne about the sharing part. I try to promote some articles for them but I give priority to those who are related to by niche and of course, if those are good writing.

      100 ‘points’ is very limited you know? 🙂

      Take care my friend. You made my day by just commenting!

      Reginald

  9. The only way I was able to even see this post was by hitting stop on my browser ASAP. That’s not good. anyway, triberr has worked out for me a bit. I never visit it but my stuff is there for sharing. so sign up, RSS, and move along. – Scott Craighead

    1. Hi Scott,

      Hey, thanks for the heads up. Really appreciate that. Lesson learned – NEVER update or change your theme 3am in the morning just because you can’t sleep! It’s all done now so thanks again.

      Triberr is excellent but careful. Some tribe are very ‘sensitive’ about the sharing part. Like my tribe, I give them specific days to be at least active. If not, at the risk of being kicked off. I try my best to spend 30 shares a day at there just to make sure I keep up with the 10+ tribes I’m in.

      Just my 2 cents and have a great weekend!

      Reginald

    1. Hi Louis,

      Hey! Certainly! It would be an honor indeed 🙂

      I have send an invitation over and you can accept it. Let’s get networking done!

      Talk to you soon mate.

      Reginald

  10. Thanks for this review, Reginald – I’m still really trying to get my head round Triberr – I found it very difficult to start with. I’m a member of a few tribes but don’t feel I’ve the time to start my own. I’ve only recently started logging on regularly to check my stream and I do try to share as much as I can, but that’s limited by time because I won’t share stuff I haven’t read.

    You’ve given a very balanced picture of Triberr in this post – it’s not perfect and I do have mixed feelings about it, but I’m quite glad I joined.

    Sue

    1. Hi Sue,

      Thanks for commenting. Personally, I think Triberr is still relatively new and has many features coming up … lately was the Home of Influencers. Looks promising as both the developer and founders are very into it. I think that matters most.

      Just like you, I don’t really have a lot of time with it. Trying to squeeze as much as time as possible for everything. I certainly hope to see it grow though.

      Have a great week!
