Why @Triberr Won Me Over the Second Time Around

TriberrWhen I first explored Triberr over a year ago, I ran away quickly. It seemed to be an automated tool that took over my social media profiles and posted on my behalf in ways that I absolutely refuse to submit to, even on Twitter where a person’s feed is given a bit more leeway. People would post something and by being in that tribe, I agreed to share their content. This didn’t sit well for me, so I abandoned it.

Things have changed for the better. Much better. Now, I’m somewhat addicted to Triberr. If you’re in standard tribes, you don’t post anything automatically. You don’t have to post anything at all if you don’t want to. What was once something that I refused to do – automate my social media feeds without vetting the content first – turned into something that I absolutely love. It’s now a place to find content written on the topics that I like and schedule posts at whatever pace I want. The forced posting community that I didn’t like at first became the perfect content grooming and vetting system.

By joining the right tribes, I’ve been given the opportunity to discover some great content. There’s awful content in the mix as well, but thankfully I don’t have to share that content. I can ignore it or even “mute” that particular blogger if they demonstrate a tendency towards submitting bad content. When I see something that strikes my fancy, I simply have to approve it. Triberr takes care of the rest and posts on my behalf.

There are plenty of post scheduling tools out there that work better for that individual purpose, but nothing combines post discovery with post scheduling like Triberr. The analytics are simple but useful – they use Google’s URL shortener to track clicks combined with their internal stats to track shares.

The important part from a marketing perspective is that your own content gets shared as well by others in your tribes. They, too, have the ability to like or not like what you’re posting, so it’s a great tool to see which pieces of content are resonating within this particular community and which ones fail miserably. The community itself is strong – the interaction between users is useful and organic.

I’m glad I checked it out again. Many services and social communities lose me from the start and never get an opportunity to get me back. I don’t remember what it was that prompted me to re-examine Triberr but I’m very glad that I did.

  1. Hi JD,
    I could have written this post myself! The first tribe that I was invited to join was not a good fit for me at all. I found myself in a tribe of MLM marketers and there honestly wasn’t a lot of content that I felt my followers would be interested in. I did meet a couple of people who I connected with and still follow but eventually, I left that tribe.

    My next attempt in Triberr was to form my own tribe. Rather than doing it strategically, I invited people who I was already sharing content with. The tribe was unnecessary and I ended up disbanding it. Months passed and Kimberly Castleberry invited me to join her tribe. Unlike my futile attempt, Kim culled a list of like minded bloggers who consistently provides quality content that does resonate with me and my blog readers. So, I’m happy now! BTW – that’s how we met! :)

  2. Hi JD,

    I’m so happy you gave us another shot.

    Our mission is to turn blogs into 1 giant social organism and make Twitter and Facebook outmoded.

    Bloggers are the celebrities of the future, and we’re building Triberr to work for bloggers. So, I’m glad Triberr is working for you the 2nd time around.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site
    owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the
    internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    In one match you can use up to 30 runes (at level 30) but you can also
    change the runes after the match if you want to play another
