Triberr - Promoting your Blog
So what is triberr, and why should you care? Well if you run a blog, it's the easiest way to get the word out to people who may have never heard of you. Triberr allows you to hook up three twitter accounts, and three rss feeds, and with the help of other members, you share these posts. So let's say for our purposes here that I have 11,000 twitter followers and my blog posts are going out to those followers as soon as I post. Now let's say I wanted to amplify how far my posts were going to other people, that's where triberr comes in. There are various groups on a multitude of subjects on the triberr site. For my site, I want to reach romance readers so I hooked up with 7 tribes that talk about romance. By promoting their blog with a simple click, they in turn promote my blog via their twitter, facebook, and linked in accounts. It's basically a you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours approach. My 11,000 amplification has increased to 396,000, which obviously is a far greater reach.
After the initial setting up your twitter, facebook, blog, and linked in feeds (you don't have to have all those to join but you should), sharing posts is as easy as clicking post. The only drawback I've found is the need to remember to visit the site and click post! An important reminder here, if you're not sharing, then others won't be sharing your posts either. So basically triberr is just a way of sharing posts and having your post shared at it's most basic level. It's a free service, but there are premium choices if you don't want to have to remember to visit the sight daily and would rather autoshare.
For me personally, triberr has been a wonderful tool for getting the word out about new books I'm publishing. As long as you're publishing blog posts regularly, I think triberr will become an asset to you as well. I'm definitely not an expert on this, and to find out more about the service and discover whether or not it will help you, I'd suggest visiting www.triberr.com
