In the following post you’re going to get a crash course in what Triberr can do for your blog and a run through of everything you need to know about Automatic Tribes followed by a sneak peek of the new Tribal Stream.
If you’ve read many of my posts then you’ll probably have gathered that I rave about Triberr like some crazed individual, a little bit like Murdock out of the A-Team.
Here’s an example that you need to watch all the way through:
Triberr, you spin me right round baby, right round!
Slightly off topic but that is someone that knows how to fly a helicopter – anyways, let’s get back to talking about Triberr.
What is Triberr?
It’s entirely possible that you may not have heard of Triberr just quite yet and if that’s the case then here’s the low down.
Triberr (AKA – The reach multiplier) is your new best friend.
Triberr is the most effective platform I have found that helps me grow my traffic, community, social shares and comments all in one.
It’s simple, sign up and join some groups of people with the same interests as you, these are called Tribes.
Follow the Tribe and request a promotion, head to your Tribal stream and share the content from other users within your Tribe.
After a while you will get a promotion to full member which will allow you other members of the Tribe to share your content.
You can then setup your own Tribe and choose to promote followers to full members so they can have their content shared.
Triberr works on the reciprocity principal – you share my content, I’ll share yours type of thing.
Don’t think about signing up if you’re just going to use it to get yourself a load of shares and sit back while others promote you and you don’t do a thing.
You can’t be sharing peoples posts every day though, but login when you can and share posts that your followers will like.
Your followers will love the great content and the authors of the content you share will appreciate you sharing it.
It’s good to share.
What is an Automatic Tribe?
The name recently changed from Atomic to Automatic, I do prefer Atomic though.
In a regular Tribe, everyone shares each other’s content but in an Automatic Tribe everyone apart from the chief is a follower.
Followers automatically the content that the chief publishes and they get updates an notifications whenever there is a new post.
The idea behind these Automatic Tribes is that they will serve as a replacement to RSS and email subscriptions.
I had a very interesting chat with Dino (co-founder of Triberr) on Skype and the aim is to have people join Automatic Tribes the same way that they would like something on Facebook or sign up for updates for example.
This is something that is available to Triberr prime users.
Who are Automatic Tribes for?
Automatic Tribes are for two groups of people.
1) Super fans – there are people that exist in the blogosphere that we really respect and share everything they publish, this means we can share their content easier than ever.
2) Employee’s – most companies don’t take advantage of the fact that their employees have social profiles and this is an easy way to do just that.
In addition, they are a really easy way to build a community without all of the hassle.
By joining an Automatic Tribe you can easily keep updated on everything that is happening and tell your followers about it.
How do I join an Automatic Tribe?
Just click the follow button like you would in a regular Tribe – it’s as simple as that.
>> To follow my updates or just see the example above, click here.
How do I know whether a Tribe is a regular tribe or an Automatic one?
When you scroll down your list of Tribes you’ll see the blue ‘automatic’ icon.
You’ll see a summary of all of your tribe mates that you have set to auto share on the right hand side as you scroll through your Tribes.
Currently you have to be in an Automatic Tribe to know whether it is standard or Automatic.
The right way to promote your Automatic Tribe
Dino from Triberr recently posted about how you should recruit followers for your Automatic Tribe here.
Some people have been doing it wrong and just spamming people on Twitter to join their Tribe which means that some people may think that it’s a regular Tribe and end up sharing content automatically from someone that they don’t really know.
So if you have your own Automatic Tribe, don’t abuse it – Triberr is a great platform that does a great job of helping bloggers like me and you get more traffic, shares, comments and all that good stuff.
The content published by members of the Tribes that I’m a part with is really top notch and I’ve met some awesome people thanks to Triberr – let’s keep it awesome and avoid actions that may taint the good name of Triberr.
A sneak peak at the future of Triberr
Triberr Prime users get access to this, but I wanted to share it with everyone else because I’m sure everyone will be seeing this soon.
Say hello to the new Tribal stream.
Also, please note the awesome moustache I have highlighted in red – that is a guy that knows how to grow a moustache!
The new tribal stream takes the regular commenting layout and flips it on its head, then spins it around a bit more and makes it truly dynamic.
Commenting will never be the same again.
You can click on people’s lovely faces to see what they’re talking about and use @mentions in comments along with improved stats and a few other things.
I really dig this new look and set of features because I just clicked on Dino’s face and I was instantly taken to a post he was active on – something that I would have completely missed because it was quite far down my tribal stream.
Just to add – the Joel Comm facelift looks great.
Triberr is amazing and it’s getting better all the time, the founders – Dan Cristo and Dino Dogan are both pioneers in driving the blogosphere forward.
Together they are continuing to develop a really solid platform that every blogger needs to be a part of.
I’m a part of the movement, will you be part of it too?
