You want volcanic black sand beaches and brilliant blue skies? You got ‘em. This beach is a 10 second walk from the front yard in Fiji. Really.

 

Let me bring you back to last month. I saw scant traffic on my old blog without promoting new posts aggressively to my social networks.

My traffic was dependent entirely on my manual efforts.

I knew that had to change if I wanted to have a life.

What’s the sense of living in Fiji if you’re tied down to the computer?

How can I enjoy Savusavu, right?

OK, so you know the story by now. I ditched my old blog. I started this blog.

Just about the first thing I did was join Triberr.

 

What is Triberr?

 

I think of it as the largest, most responsive, supportive, and heck, the best traffic generating tribe on the internet. Triberr is the brainchild of Dino Dogan. The man had a vision. He brought the vision into form through his persistence and ingenuity.

 

My Triberr Story

 

After running a few blogs which vibed with Triberr – and 1 that didn’t – I became familiar with the network but hadn’t cracked the traffic generating code on the site. Why? I hadn’t mastered the concept of blogging outreach.

Triberr is like any other social network. If you want to get anything out of it simply give freely. Blogger outreach is about giving freely to promote authority bloggers from your niche. Blogger outreach is about commenting freely on Triberr updates and on the blog posts themselves.

Blogger outreach is about making friends with top bloggers. I made outreach my #1 goal on joining Triberr with my new blog.

I haven’t been disappointed.

1 of my posts generated over 3,800 Flares and 91 comments. Now, I’m not a volume guy per se. But when you combine the social shares WITH the comments you have evidence not only of serious social proof, but also, of forming bonds with other bloggers who are aggressively promoting your content to their networks.

I’m all about leveraging. Blogging from paradise points you in a leveraging, “getting the most out of your time”, direction. If I’m jetting from Phuket, Thailand to Savusavu, Fiji I may be in the air for 4 days. I was, 7 weeks ago to the day.

How did I stay in the stream? I populated my social streams with Triberr updates, with a heavy focus on twitter.

If I’m in the air or traveling on land I also make the most of my time online. This means connecting with authorities from my niche through Triberr.

Before we discuss the tips I want you to check out this awesome Triberr primer from Jim Dougherty at LeadersWest. It’s a super helpful tutorial for Triberr beginners and veterans alike.

How to Get Started on Triberr (from setup to sharing)

Ready for the tips? Let’s dive in.

 

Publish 1 to 3 Helpful Posts Weekly

 

I’m finding pillar style, in-depth posts to be very sharable on Triberr. Tribe mates dig serious, sink your cyber teeth into, valuable posts.

Publishing 1 to 3 posts weekly keeps you in the RSS/ Triberr stream. Anything less and you’re bound to be forgotten. (unless you’re publishing viral content on a bi-weekly basis)

Create snappy titles. Publish thorough content. Be relevant.

Populating the Triberr stream with good, problem-solving, inspiring content helps you get the most out of Triberr.

 

Join Targeted Tribes

 

Join targeted tribes to see the greatest returns for your efforts. Think of me; I write about smart blogging tips. So I joined tribes relevant to blogging tips themed blogs.

I drill down though. You know, I am blogging from paradise. I’m helping you retire to a life of island hopping through smart blogging. So I also have followed a few travel tribes but I’m not sharing my posts, as a few are travel-themed, and most are related to blogging tips.

(Does Triberr work? I think so….)

Target. Don’t join as many tribes as possible. Join as many targeted tribes as possible where you can be an active member. Remember, leveraging. Leverage your time by joining only targeted tribes.

 

Comment on Triberr Posts

 

Here’s one way to improve your visibility on Triberr; talk. Comment on Triberr posts. Share a few thoughts. Doing so increases your visibility as well as your trust factor.

Live bodies get the most out of Triberr. It takes a split second to roll over a Share button but a greater investment to share your thoughts regarding any Triberr post.

Clarification: by saying “Triberr Posts” I mean posts populating the Triberr stream from blogger’s RSS feeds.

Anyway, I gained some serious traction with Blogging from Paradise by commenting on Triberr posts. I was invited to tribes and I also built bonds with authority bloggers by sharing my thoughts.

Be visible. Comment.

Adam Connell is one blogger who does a wonderful job commenting on Triberr posts. He’s quick to respond and comments on virtually all responses, without fail.

Visit his Triberr account here.

 

Click through to Read the Blog Post

 

Duh, right? OK, if you believe in a blogger and know their work rocks you can scan and share. That’s your call. I prefer to read each post before I share it on Twitter.

Why? Well to follow the next critical tip, you need to follow this tip. Reading the actual blog post gives you context for your Triberr comments.

(If you like sunsets in Fiji….and me chatting…..watch the short video.)


Clicking the post link and reading is also the right thing to do.

Be real. Be authentic. Click the link and read the post before you comment on and share this post through Triberr.

 

Comment on the Blog

 

Hit authority bloggers with the Triberr 1-2 punch. Comment on their blog and on the Triberr post too. The 1-2 punch makes an impact and commenting on blogs doesn’t hurt you, either.

I mean, this lil old guy Blogging from Paradise (capitalized for branding purposes) was featured on brand.com, landed some sweet freelance writing gigs, will be speaking a class at NYU and was endorsed by a NY Times bestselling author in large part because he posted helpful, thorough comments on authority blogs.

One reason why all those neat things happened – or will happen – is because I shared my thoughts in the comments field.

Comment, folks. Use first names, be nice, be thorough, and you’ll see the true power of Triberr.

 

Share Posts Freely

 

This means, paying it forward. Promote others to promote yourself. Follow the Golden Rule. Sow seeds, reap later. Give what you have and you’ll never want.

OK enough with the sayings.

The thing is: what you give out returns multiplied. If you want Triberr mates to share your posts, share their posts. This one works quite well if you carefully share relevant content.

Don’t share content just to share it. Share content to serve your audience up unique, targeted content.

Example; I pop in 2 or 3 times daily to share 5 to 10 posts. I read, and comment on relevant updates, then roll over the Share button. Sharing makes a difference. Sharing makes the difference.

Many tribe mates get it, and a few don’t. The few folks who rarely share either get booted out of tribes or at best, people ignore their work, and never share it. Triberr works well for the sharing, kind, giving person.

Share on your network of choice. I prefer to share on twitter since Facebook isn’t too keen on automating. Knowing this I simply tweet out updates every hour or so via Triberr.

The uh....ahem....home office. Savusavu, Fiji style.

The uh….ahem….home office. Savusavu, Fiji style.

 

The cool part is you can change your settings to schedule shares. Space out your shares by 15 minutes to every few days. I prefer hourly shares. So if I read 5 posts in 10 to 15 minutes I’ll share each one. Each post gets shared 1 hour apart from the other posts, in the order which I shared it through Triberr.

Giving freely really does precede receiving easily.

 

Share Posts Persistently

 

Sharing posts via Triberr daily – for a week – is not enough. Share posts daily for a month, or 3 months, or for a year, to make a serious impact. Just like infrequent blog posting or sporadic commenting you can’t make an impact unless you show up and share day after day.

People admire persistent Triberr folk. Folks who share daily for months pop up on the radar. You can always pop in, share 50 posts or so and space out these shares over hours, or even days, if you wish.

I suggest sharing Triberr posts each hour. The decision is yours but whatever the frequency just make sure to show up and share for a period of months. If you’re really working the comments field and share posts aggressively you’ll start to create a Triberr buzz around your blog and brand within a week or so.

Then when you show up for a month, day after day, you’ll be a known commodity on the network.

Share posts persistently.

 

Start a Tribe

 

Do you want to be seen as an expert on Triberr?

Start a tribe.

I started the Blogging from Paradise tribe last month. How fitting, right? My tribe members are mainly bloggers who share blogging tips but I branch out sometimes to draw in authority bloggers from other niches.

Triberr mates respect someone who runs a tight Triberr tribe. Like, someone who inspires members to participate, to share content and to engage through the comments field.

I am the Chief of my tribe. You can be the Chief too, of your own tribe. Just start a new tribe, build it around a central theme and invite as many relevant blogging pros as possible into the tribe.

Encourage engagement by being a chatty dude or dudette.

Be a Tribal Chief who has some juice.

 

Spread the Word on Social Networks

 

This one is easy.

Promote your Triberr profile on:

  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Google Plus
  • LinkedIn
  • Any other social network
  • Your email signature

Just promote your handle page freely because Triberr users are active on all types of social networks.

On to the next tip because this tip is so simple.

 

Join as Many Relevant Tribes as Possible

 

Emphasis on “relevant.” As I’ve mentioned before – and as you know – Blogging from Paradise is no travel blog. BFP shares blogging tips to help you retire to a life of island hopping.

I run a blogging blog like Darren Rowse or Zac Johnson. So I don’t join travel blog tribes. If I had, I did so by accident, and I alerted those tribe’s chiefs to remove my blog if they too believed BFP was off topic for their audience.

Join relevant tribes. But don’t limit yourself. Just join as many tribes as you can, actively participating in each group. If you find yourself barely able to share content or post comments on tribes because you’ve joined too many scale things down a bit.

It’s better to be an active member of fewer tribes than to be a ghost in a hundred tribes because people who get the most out of Triberr, blog traffic wise, are active participants in the groups that they join.

 

Fill out Your Profile Information

 

Triberr members want to know who you are and how you can benefit them before they invite you into tribes. Sure you muster up some invites from close buddies you’ve connected with before joining Triberr but many Triberr users will be strangers to you, and you to them.

Enter your profile. List your skills. Add a bit of humor to lighten the mood. Of course, link up to your blog and all relevant social networking accounts to be transparent.

Why would people invite a stranger into their tribes?

I added a little clever branding to my profile.

If you click through to see my Triberr profile page (yeah, click it) you’ll see an image of a Fiji water bottle on the beaches of Fiji. Yep, yours truly set that one up.

I’m living in Savusavu, Fiji so I figured, why the heck not? Seize the branding opportunity and stand out from the Triberr crowd. Fill out your profile and get creative with your banner.

 

Respond to Comments on Your Posts

 

Commenting on other Triberr mate’s posts is not enough. Responding to comments on your posts builds trust and solidifies bonds….yep, responding to comments, just like on your blog.

I check in 2 or 3 times daily to scan my updates.

"Friday ain't working day!"...says my virtual assistant Hasey.

“Friday ain’t working day!”…says my virtual assistant Hasey.

 

The little icon to the top right side of the page will light up if tribal activity has occurred. If you’re a chatty person who shares good content these updates will be comments related to your Triberr updates, more often than not.

Pop in, respond quickly and build those bonds.

I usually reply with 1 or 2 sentences. Going more in depth is OK but I’m so busy crafting lengthy comments on authority blogs and responding on my own blog that I have little time to get uber thorough on Triberr.

 

Write Posts like These

 

Triberr themed posts – listing double figure tips – are pure gold on Triberr.

Just see how many Flares this bad boy attracts.

The combination of big numbers, sharing on Triberr and simply providing a tutorial to help you get the most out of the platform almost always goes viral, or semi-viral, because Triberr users are a tight knit group. We stick together and promote the living stuffing out of one another.

 

Your Turn

 

Now it’s on to you…but first…..have you met the man, the myth, the legend? Or, the fired security guard (who was on the dole) who retired to a life of island hopping through smart blogging?

Yep, that’s me….and a New York Times Best Selling Author – plus a million dollar earning blogger – endorsed my story, aka, my new eBook, Blogging from Paradise.

    Hi Ryan
    Another amazing post from you. Joining Triberr was the first thing I did when I started my blog a few months back, due to your advice. It truly is a wonderful site. As an active sharer, I have established relationships with various bloggers who I can always count on to share my content with their networks. I am working on commenting more on the actual site and not just individual posts to increase my visibility and get invited into tribes populated with quality bloggers in my niche. It truly is a wonderful site, and can be a valuable tool for building traffic and relationships if you use it the right way.

      KC, you are spot on. Triberr works so well for folks who work it and you hit the site running, of course, in the right direction. Give what you wish to have; that being, if you want traffic and comments, promote Tribe mates and comment on both Triberr, and through their blogs. The strategy works so well. Thanks for sharing your insight.

    Hi Ryan,

    I was nodding right through your post dear friend :)

    Oh yes…there’s nothing like Triberr, and just being there is awesome! I remain grateful to Carolyn for introducing it to me long back and now being part of 91 tribes (mostly through invitation to join), and numerous Tribesmate, it just rocks!

    There is SO much to learn on Triberr, especially from the various bloggers you meet and interact with, the new posts you read daily, and the wonderful friendships we make. I get a lot of new blogging friends coming from Triberr and that’s just how new relationships are made.

    I wonder how you manage to comment on nearly every post on Triberr, as I’ve see you ALL over! I barely manage to read a handful, though I share most posts every 15 minutes. I guess being a part of so many tribes, one has to learn to give back more than anything else. Yes, they also share my posts in huge numbers and I am so grateful to my Tribesmate for doing that.

    Nothing like Triberr, and I strongly recommend every blogger to join it too. It might take a while to get your way around, but there are various posts and videos to help you with it. :)

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend…I know you always do :)

    Definitely, definitely and definitely have to hit up the Triberr! Feel a little silly for leaving it this long. But there’s still time to get an account up and running!

    Yeah those statistics are sky rocketing Ryan. Well done on the great stats! But of course, a lot of it is quality content which you also write. That’s a big reason :)

    Hows the water over in Fiji by the way Ryan? Gotta show me some nice close snaps of it. Would be great to see.

      Hi Ken, yep the quality content helps too….and outreach. That 1-2 punch. The water is SO clear I’ll post a few more pics for you. As for the beach, it’s black sands, and not a beachy beach in these parts, in Savusavu. More for snorkeling as there are rocks in many spots and huge volcanic formations. Thanks dude appreciate it :)

    Hi Ryan!

    Thanks for the recommended resources shared in this post to help understand how Triberr works. Looking forward to reading them over the weekend.

    As you know, I’ve been playing with Triberr just recently, but so far I still haven’t worked out how to fully leverage the platform.

    I’ve joined a couple of tribes, including yours, but members of the Tribes can’t see my RSS feed (yet) because I’ve not been added as a member, just a follower.

    From what I can gather, you join Tribes as a follower first, and then you actively engage with the members, share their content, etc…

    And hopefully, with consistent effort, the chief will notice and upgrade you from a follow to a member. THEN your blog posts appear in the content stream for other members to share, etc.

    Is that right Ryan?

    Triberr is definitely including in my aggressive bloggers outreach strategy – and this post has been a great help, so thank you once again. :)

      Hi Kerry, I just added you as a member yesterday; I didn’t realize you were following up until that point. Your posts should show up; just go to settings, click assign tribes, and you can add your blog to any tribe where you’re a member. You’re doing great. Keep being super social, and sharing content, as active members gain so many invites. Thanks so much Kerry.

    Hi Ryan!

    Loved your post and the topic is so very relevant – awesome! (and love the number 13) ha ha

    * About your picture: absolutely beautiful, and I didn’t realize that the sand was black from volcanic ash influencing the color!

    It’s so interesting! What a stark contrast to the blue sky, simply breathtaking! I lived on the Gulf Coast of Florida for 21 years and enjoyed the white sanded beaches with sea oats and dunes, so this is a huge difference and one that I find just gorgeous. *

    About your topic, I have really enjoyed the Triberr community and am benefiting greatly as I hope I am benefiting others as well.

    As you are proof, it’s a fantastic traffic source. I couldn’t agree more! :) Giving freely first is the key to most things and definitely is true on Triberr. Absolutely comments and social sharing go a long way in evidencing social proof and blogger outreach and engagement.

    Have bookmarked Jim’s LeadersWest site and will definitely go over it with a fine tooth comb, so thank you for sharing this awesome resource!

    Love your first tip, and have found regular publishing does definitely give the benefits you mention, keeps you in the stream, and not pushed down too far… My regular schedule is 2 per week, but have had to adjust these last two weeks, which is fine occasionally, I think.

    Yeah, love to join active and targeted tribes. I’m on the lookout for more, and focus three days a week to joining additional tribes and sharing content and queuing up shares in Buffer.

    I will be increasing my comments on posts I read and comment on – on the original page, because that’s adding value to the tribe. You do a beautiful job of this, so thanks for the awesome example in this area.

    Question: How much time do you spend sharing content of members of tribes you’re just a ‘follower’ of? I’m trying to get added as a member to a few tribes and sharing on a regular basis and commenting isn’t working at getting me added. Don’t know if I should ditch my efforts and just focus on ones I’m already a member of.

    Yes, I wholeheartedly agree with reading the blog post in order to be able to give value and have the right context for your comments.

    Love that you coined the “Triberr 1-2 punch” <— going to remember that and will start implementing all the time instead of sometimes.

    It’s great that you drive home the fact that relevancy is important, and it definitely is. I too venture out a bit in order to keep things human, as we all surf for things in our personal lives too, but the keeping the main thing the main thing is definitely noted.

    I should do a post on Triberr as I’ve done one but it was more of an introductory and general post.

    Loved your tips, Ryan and will be sharing right now…

    Talk soon,

      Wow thank Carol for the epic comment! It’s tough to say, time-wise. I think I spend about 15 to 20 minutes every 3 or 4 hours, sharing, and a little extra time commenting on Triberr. I spend the bulk of my time posting comments on the actual blogs themselves and of course, promoting through social media channels. Wow, Florida sounds so beautiful. It’s funny; a handful of beaches on Fiji’s Islands – there are 217 island here – are white sand, like many in Thailand (our fave country to travel to), but most are volcanic, black sand. My feet look dirty as can be when I return from a walk on the beach but wash off in a second lol….thanks so much again, appreciate it Carol.

    Hi Ryan,

    Thank you so much for inviting me to your Tribe. It’s been a great experience and I’m loving the connections I’m making as a result.

    I’m brand new to Triberr so I’m still figuring it out a little. Not that it’s hard from a user perspective but from trying to find the right tribes. Some Tribes owners are not much into letting members join, but they appear to love followers, lol…

    So, I am taking your lead and leaving comments that will be helpful to the tribes.

    Unit this post I didn’t realize you could follow someone. Thanks for sharing Adam’s page. I will certainly follow him, and you, now that I know that.

    Thank you for teaching me more about this neat tool! I look forward to mastering it soon.

    I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

    Hey Ryan,

    Sorry for missing your last few posts. Needless to say, that 8,317-word behemoth post of mine monopolized much of my time and I’ve been playing catch up all week!

    But, I did get a new post published this week (you are mentioned in it, in case you didn’t know), and I’m finally (finally!) getting to check out some of my favorite blogs.

    Anyway…

    I may have to print this post of yours so I can have it handy. I have heard of Triberr, but it’s not something I have looked into yet.

    It sounds like I need to. This may be a weekend project…

    Hope all is beautiful and well in Fiji!

    Talk to you again soon.

    Hey Ryan,

    Thank you for the reminder to quit neglecting my Triberr profile. I comment here and there maybe once or twice a week but I don’t concentrate on giving back specifically to a community like this. It seems like it’d make it easier to do so rather than spread the love far and wide.

    I’m grateful to have this post and Jim’s as guidelines to help me get on track with this awesome resource that Dino has provided.

    It’s cool to see that you’ve used your suggestions to catapult yourself forward the way you have. I’ve seen you in many places, as your post suggests, and I’m glad that it is paying off for you in the many ways that it has.

    Looking forward to seeing you continue to evolve forward with your generous efforts to give back to this community.

    Hey Ryan,

    Great post here. I just recently started to understand and use triberr and I’m loving it – and I’m sort of disappointed that it took this long to get on it but oh well.

    You made some really great points here in this post and I agree with everything that you said … and will implement them myself to increase my “action” on triberr.

    I have a question though. If you join a tribe as a follower and you’re sharing content of other bloggers regularly, how soon would you send a message that you would like to become a member of that tribe?

    I’m with a few tribes now and sharing their content, but I just don’t know how soon to ask them if I could upgrade an become a member of the tribe.

    Let me know. But anyway, thanks for this post. Very informative.

    Hope you have a great rest of the weekend.

      Hi Andrew, Hmmm….great question. I ask most folks immediately if the tribe is relevant to my blog, but then I get to sharing content and commenting on the tribe’s updates immediately too. If most chiefs see you as being an active, live body and your blog is relevant to the central theme you should be upgraded to being a member, no probs. Thanks so much for reading and sharing Andrew. You too :)

    Ryan, I cannot imagine blogging without the help of Triberr. I would not get so many tweets and other social shares out there without Triberr. I’ve met many new bloggers there as well.
    I’m part of 76 tribes and have 3 of my own. I recently created one just for my fun photography blog. The other 2 are for SEO, blogging and social media. (I know I may need to narrow the niche after reading your great eBook)…
    I like your advice to comment. I just checked my tribes and saw I had comments I hadn’t responded to yet. On my way…
    One thing – I wish they had a mobile app for it. I do use Triberr on my photo but just to share posts. Not easy to check comments and do other things from mobile. Or is there one I don’t know about? Must ask Dino about that.
    Hope you are enjoying your weekend Ryan!

      Wow Lisa, 76 tribes? Awesome! I also didn’t know Triberr wasn’t on mobile. I bet you Dino is working on an app for that as for folks use it. I’m always lap topping it work-wise, on Triberr so I never new. So happy you are finding my eBook useful, and thanks for the kind words….you have a great weekend too Lisa :)

    Hey Ryan! I’m so thrilled to have been invited to your tribe. I feel inspired to reinvigorate my Triberr efforts. Lately I’ve been sticking to commenting on blogs directly, I’m having trouble finding time to do both… I don’t know how you do it, man! You’re like the energizer bunny!

    I wanted to give you a heads up, you have a typo here:

    “Join as Many Relevant Tribes as Possible

    Emphasis on “relevant.” As I’ve mentioned before – and as you know – Blogging from Paradise is no travel blog. BFP shares blogging tips to help you retire to a life of island hopping.

    I run a blogging BOG…”

    You probably didn’t mean to say blogging bog =)

    Happy Traveling!

      Cool, thanks so much for catching that typo Brittany. Doing both can be a challenge but sharing a line or 2 on Triberr, compared to my big comments on blogs, is working OK for me time-wise. Thanks so much again, and have a great week Brittany :)

    Hi Ryan

    Sweet are the uses of Triberr and very sweet are the points you mentioned here to make the most of this awesome resource.

    At every social media one-way traffic never works. If you need comments, you have to comment at other shares. This is a tit-for-tat era on social media and you must follow the golden rule of “give good and get good or even better”.

    I am a big fan of your style of writing. You also arouse our feelings of envy mentioning where are you roaming and how you are enjoying at a pleasant beach of a well known resort. You are so lucky blogger having fun and work together.

    Have a great day and keep enjoying.

      Mi, the one way traffic note is so well put. It doesn’t work. Selfish bloggers get no where on Triberr or in life, so just help folks out on the network and you’ll reap wonderful returns. Thanks for reading and sharing. Will do, you too Mi :)

    Right on! I used to be a part of some tribe groups for syndication, but I do not think that they worked as socially as you are talking about with this Triberr.

    I do know that being in active groups where you share each others stuff and comment on each others blogs works magnificently.

    When I first began blogging I was a part of many different blog community groups. I participated in them all, because I lived with my mom and dad. So let’s just face it. I had the time.

    Now, that I do not have as much time, I am sure nicheing down and joining a few tribes will be idea.

    Looking forward to trying this Triberr out. I just signed up!

    Thank you Ryan for this information about Triberr. I once registered but I did not so much with it. After reading your post, I definitely go back to Triberr and engage with other bloggers.

    I actually found out about Triberr through one of your articles, Ryan. I still haven’t figured out how to use it for maximum results but this article definitely helped point me in the right direction. It’s nice to see some people sharing my links on Twitter more often than usual. Maybe I’ll do a case study on Triberr…

    Anyways, thanks for all of these tips, I’ll make sure to implement them when I’m tinkering with Triberr!

    Hi Ryan,

    When it comes to Triberr, one can pump up readership so quickly. I was on it a while back but had to take a hiatus for a while. Producing and selling my own products was my key focus and I just couldn’t keep up with all the traffic.

    But like I said, a hiatus…I’ll be back because I know how powerful Triberr is. Once you find the right tribes to join, Pay it forward, you immediately see how quickly your readership grows.

    I met Adam there and he is amazing! There are great bloggers that I still have connections with.

    Oh yes…create your own tribe is absolutely the thing to do!

    Thanks for writing about Triberr because I know it is a fantastic place to be as a blogger.

    Hi Ryan,

    I came across a comment of yours on Adrienne Smith’s blog and just had to hop over here and see what you were doing! I’m thrilled to have landed on this Triberr tutorial blog as Triberr is where I know I must head. I am not primarily a blogger, but a success coach for entrepreneurs. I use my blog as a tool for engaging, providing value and meeting new people and have relied for a long time on SEO and the big 4 social media sites!. I’m in search of more “real” and only recently learned about Triberr.

    I’ll be taking time to go through this post again and the links you’ve provided. I’m excited to meet people who are serious about providing real value and supporting others. The “Facebook” mentality has gotten old and frustrating..

    BTW… I’ve traveled a lot of the world but never the South Pacific. It looks beautiful!! Thank you for including the pictures.

    Best,
    Deborah

    Hi,

    I have been a member of Triberr for so long, but I wasn’t active over there. Maybe I didn’t understood it at that time.

    After reading this post, I added my rss feeds of my blog, seriously I did it now.

    My next thing will be to interact with some of the post, and join some tribes.

    Thanks Ryan, I will check my Triberr progress, and perhaps follow your activity to see how to do it right each day.

    You are awesome Ryan.

    Hi Ryan!

    These tips are awesome! I’m on Triberr but I see now that I need to seriously up my game on there. I’ve been slack in my blogging but have recently become more focused so I should be uping my game there too. I keep hearing more and more about how valuable Triberr is. Can’t go wrong without trying it right? I’m like Lisa above though, I truly wish there was a good mobile app. I do a lot by phone and it’s definitely not good for commenting.

    1. Ryan Biddulph (Post author)

      Hi Brenda, Triberr is fun, and oh so rewarding too. I’d suggest to be all in; fully commit to working the network and you’ll see so many benefits from your diligent, persistent efforts. Comment a bunch, start your own tribe and share relevant content, and you can’t go wrong. Thanks so much for sharing Brenda.

    I’m very thankful for you introducing me to Triberr Ryan. Whilst I am still getting the hang of it, I am enjoying connecting with people and I am trying to engage as much as possible.

    Like you say, there is only a real point in joining tribes of relevance. My strategy at the moment is not to join lots of tribes, but to be an active member of just a few. I know that I am struggling with time at the moment, so there is no point in trying to stretch myself even thinner and then not come across as an active participant. I plan to be active in just a few tribes and then build from there.

    So far, it’s certainly proving to be a great platform :-)

    Sharing this now…through Triberr of course!!

    Hey Ryan,

    I love Triberr, I’ve been with them since the beginning. I’m part of a lot of tribes but I’ve found that a lot of them obviously don’t know what they’re doing and they just let anyone join without really seeing if they’re even in the same niche.

    Now you know I love to share other people’s content but if it’s way outside my niche all the time then my followers on Twitter are going to start wondering what the heck I’m doing. They’re looking for good stuff they can sink their teeth in. So I have a LOT of people muted for that reason.

    Now I don’t comment a lot on the posts in Triberr because I do not have the time to comment everywhere on the planet but those people are very aware of who is sharing their content and some of them I’m loyal readers as well.

    I think it really helped though that I was one of the first too so I’ve been around the community for years now. I don’t know if I would have that kind of luck if I were just starting.

    But if anyone wants to know how to get people’s attention then you do have to make that connection with them by chatting with them in the tribe you want to join and just try to keep that conversation going but also visit their blogs, comment and of course share. It all takes time but it’s time worth spent.

    Glad you’re having success with Triberr, I just love this platform.

      Adrienne, excellent points all around. We need relevance more than anything, to be true to our followings. Also, you need to publish quality posts in a tribe or people will tune you out, quickly. Some Triberr chiefs allow poor quality posts to be shared, watering down the value of the tribes. Not good. I can see why you’re having success with Triberr Adrienne. You really care about others and this shines through with all that you do. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Hey Ryan, excellent post! You are a great, motivational speaker. I think I’ve got lots of new ideas from your post and it’s time to get down to work. I still can’t figure out though how you can juggle all the things you do and still have time to enjoy life. Mine is a little on hold since I started this blog and I am sort of tired of that. Any advice?

    Hi again Ryan,

    Thanks heaps for the tips on Triberrr!

    I actually had never heard of Triberrr before. I checked it out briefly after I read about it here on your blog last week. But I’m always hesitant to join yet another social network unless I feel relatively sure it will be worthwhile and also understand how to use it effectively… because, social networks can take a lot of time!

    So thanks heaps for the details on how Triberrr works and how to use it effectively. You obviously know how to do it well – look at all the flares on this post alone! Yeeha! Go man, go.

    Looking forward to reading more of your posts here.

    cheers, Lash
