Triberr Strategies that Increase Exposure and Traffic

Traffic and engagement

Triberr strategiesTriberr is a very powerful traffic and engagement tool. It is still not so famous like other traffic generation devices but you can see this as an opportunity to grow your business in an environment that is still not so crowded and not so competitive.

How to take advantage of this new platform? What Triberr strategies can you use to increase exposure and get more visitors to your site or blog using this online community? This is what I want to share with you in this post.

Triberr Strategies Fundamentals

Now, let’s see some strategies and tactics you can use to increase exposure and drive more traffic.

Other people’s tribes

embrace_the_world

This is the simplest strategy. Join other people’s tribes as a follower. This will provide you with a lot of content to share on your social networks. It’s an excellent way to have fresh quality content available for you to share.

Share other people’s content

This is the fundamental strategy. You read other people’s posts and share those you find relevant and valuable for your niche. You can do this in your Tribal stream. Click on the title, click Visit site, read the post and then return to the Tribal stream and share it.

Make comments on posts

Make commentsAfter you shared an interesting post, the best thing you can do is to let a comment below that post (in the tribal stream). Tell the author how much you enjoyed the content, add your opinions about the subject, talk about an important point the author made in the respective post etc.

Tip: Do not forget to tell people you shared the post.

If you don’t know what to say in your comment, just tell them you shared the post.

Become a member

There are many ways you can become a member:

  • The chief of the tribe promotes you: This usually happens after a period of time but you have to convince the chief you are a valuable member
  • You ask for a promotion from the tribe’s chief
  • You get an invitation from a tribe’s chief, to become a member of a particular tribe.  

What to do when you get an invitation to become a member?

Do not respond immediately. This is very important, especially when you don’t know that tribe or that chief. You must study the tribe first. Let’s check some Triberr strategies for becoming a tribe’s member. Ask yourself:

1. What is the niche of that tribe?

It is very easy to create a description and when it is missing, this is a lack of professionalism. If the tribe is not in your niche, run as fast as you can. If you are in the traffic building niche, for example, you don’t want you tribal stream inundated with posts about travel, fashion, health, weight loss, pets and so on. Just run.

2. Who is the chief of the tribe?

ChiefThis is an important question. Do not skip it. The chief determines the tribe so check him (her) carefully.

Do you know him (her)? Check his (her) profile. What is the niche he (she) is active in? Check some of the chief’s blog posts to see what is he posting, where and how (the style).

3. Who are the members?

Who are the members of the tribe? Do you know them? Check them patiently. Study their profiles, the tribes they are in, what kind of materials are they posting etc. If you are techie blogger and do not study the members and join the tribe blindly, you risk to be flooded by posts about cats, dogs, iguanas, lizards, parrots, exotic places or chocolate and strawberries.

Do you research well, otherwise you won’t get results from Triberr.

4. What kind of posts?

This is a good place to find out the niche of that tribe. Check the latest 10-15 posts in that tribe. Is it one domain or more? Is it in your niche or not?

Tip : Avoid multi-niches tribe.

Multi nicheWhen I say multi-niches I do not refer to sub-niches. Example: In the internet marketing mega niche we have subniches like: blogging, affiliate marketing, traffic building, email marketing, video marketing etc.

These are sub-niches and it is OK for a tribe to have sub-mniches of the same niche. However, there will be times when you will see tribes that include niches like: marketing, health and fitness, weight loss, fashion, travel, pets etc. When you see this, run for your life.

Leader of your own tribe

Chief of the tribeAmong all Triberr strategies this is the most important. Wait for a few weeks until you familiarize with the environment and with the Triberr’s rules, then make your own tribe.

It is very important to have your own tribe (if you want success) so you must not forget about this. Don’t be afraid to become a chief.

It is no big deal and it does not involve a lot of work to do in your tribe. You will attract new members, engage them a little and let them come and upload their precious content inside your tribe. Don’t be shy. Do it!

Triberr strategies and rules for a good tribe

A good description

Clipboard_folder2Make a good description for your tribe. Do not forget this. Tell people what this tribe is about, what is the niche and what kind of members do you want.

Find valuable members for your tribe

This is the reason why you should wait at least a few weeks until you make your own tribe. You must be a member of at least 3-4 tribes first and get some experience with the platform. Ideally, you should be a member of, at least, 9-10 tribes before making your own.

During this process you will meet and study hundreds of tribemates. Identify the best ones and invite them to your blog. You should aim for quality and not for quantity. The number of members is limited (30 for free tribes, 50 for paid tribes) so choose carefully. Only the best of the best should be invited (or accepted). The rest of the world may stay in your tribe as followers.

Dare to say NO!

You don’t have to accept anybody in your tribe. I saw this mistake made over and over again in Triberr. If you don’t like the person, let him (her) remain a follower. If that person is not in your niche, don’t make him (her) a member. Never!!!

Don’t fall into temptation

CupcakesFrosted_Picture2I was tempted many times in Triber. One day I got a request form a person called S.T. (the name is fictional). He wanted to become a member of my tribe.

I checked his profile and found out he was not in my niche but had more than 10000 twitter followers. WOW! What a powerful temptation. Finally, I decided to refuse the request.

10000 twitter followers are great but the possibility to be flooded by cats, dogs and monkeys or exotic places is horrible. I almost cried when I rejected him.

This is what you should do. If the person is not in your niche, refuse the request. If he (she) has 1 million followers, you will certainly cry. Cry but refuse.

What to do when the back door is opened?

There will be times when you refuse to accept a person as a member of your tribe only to find out that his posts arrived on your tribal stream from another tribe. Triberr manages very complex networks of tribes in their matrix so this is always a possibility.

In this case the best thing you can do to avoid those posts arrive in your tribal stream is to mute that person. Check the Help section to see how you can mute somebody on Triberr.

Final remarks

my missionThat’s all folks. Study these Triberr strategies then go to Triberr and use it. It is free, it is simple, it is easy and it is powerful. The possibility to increase exposure and traffic for your blog is real and important. Also, the support is good and they respond fast.

Don’t waste this opportunity. Sooner or later everybody will jump on the bandwagon and it will be more difficult to get good results. Take advantage now. Tomorrow it may be too late.

Now it’s your turn. What other Triberr strategies and tactics to increase exposure and traffic do you know? Please, share it with us.

  1. I have an account but didn’t know what to do with it..until now so this was helpful. Thanks!
    Rose invites you to read… How to Go From Why to Wow!: Networking with Impact!My Profile

    • Hello Mrs Rose,

      Thank you for the comment and Welcome to my site. You seem a real person, serious and professional. I like your blog. It is nice, colored, well balanced (between ads and content) and I like the layout. I should change my blog a little bit so I think I will inspire from yours.

      One thing I don’t like is the comments on your blog. I checked one post that gathered more comments and the impression was not so good. Those people who commented on your site don’t have a picture, don’t have a name and their comments are nothing more than generic messages that fit well on almost any post. They are spammers.
      Do you realize you are spammed? I would never approve those type of messages.

      A friendly advice: please be aware of the comments you receive on your blog. Check them. Where do they come from? Is the commentator a real person?

      What should you check?
      Well, things like:
      - does the commentator have a gravatar (the picture with himself/herself)? If no, reject the comment.
      Accept only pictures with real people not drawings or monster faces.
      - does the commentator have a name?
      - does the commentator have a site/blog?
      - is the comment related to your post?
      - does the comment add value to your post?
      Don’t be afraid to reject. There are millions of commentators on the Net. Choose only the quality ones.

      One more thing: if you accept spammers on your site, sooner or later your site will be labelled as a spamming site by Google and penalized. Also, real people, real commentators will avoid you (because they wouldn’t want their site to be associated with a spam site).
      I have no intention to offend you but I want to protect my site.

      Looking forward from an answer from you.

      Have a wonderful day

      • Gosh you are great! Thank you! I wasn’t sure (& they seem so REAL. Others were transparent). I will reject & unapprove those there (not boosting traffic anyways)! Thank you Thank you Thank you!

        • Hi Mrs Rose,

          Yes, spamming is a terrible problem these days. So many people think they will get backlinks and this will help improve their rankings and make money. The temptation to create a junk message and spam everybody is great. Some people simply can’t resist.

          Unfortunately for them, on the long rung, it will destroy any site or business they have. What’s even worse for them is that you can’t spam forever. No matter how good you are you will be spotted and blacklisted.
          The best way is to build real backlinks with useful, quality content. The process is slower but safe and in the long rung it will build you a good reputation online.

          Until then, you just have to be aware about different techniques used by spammers and create your own strategy to protect. Blog comments are an important part of the strategy. You need to understand the way blog commenting works and how to make or accept good comments. I have just started to write an ebook about blog commenting and strategies to make and accept quality comments. I will make it available for free for all the people who join my list.

          Have a wonderful day

    • Hi Ryan,

      Thanks for the comment. I am glad you like the tips. They are not from theory but from my experience. I must say that Triberr is a very interesting platform. It can really level the playing field as it gives you a chance to be heard even when you are not a big influencer.

      Have a wonderful day

    Hello Silviu,

    Thank you for sharing info on Triberr. I still hesitate to open my account, but I’m definitely going to create one during the weekend.
    There are already great people that I know and follow on Twitter, so it would be easy for me to find their tribes and follow them.
    These folks are really professional and they are in the internet marketing niche as I am. Still I have to check their tribes just to be sure.

    • Hi Branko,

      Thank you for the comment and Welcome to my site. Yes, Triberr is very good. However, if you want to get the best results, you must choose only tribes in your niche and avoid everybody who is in a different niche. It is difficult but not impossible. Also, making your own tribe is a must. However, you should wait for some weeks until you find good tribemates to invite.

      Have a wonderful day

    I have used Triberr in the past, but I don’t use it now. I had visited the site few months back. I had thought about joining a tribe (I am not sure if I am a member of any tribe right now. Perhaps I am. I do remember creating my own tribes, and I transferred them to one of the members).

    I am reluctant to give it another try, since I already do everything with my own system – Feedly, Buffer App, and all. But, I do love trying tools (plus, I have gotten results with Triberr).

    I do appreciate the tips, Silviu :) Thanks! I need to revisit Triberr and see what I can do :D

  5. Excellent tips Silviu! I’m a big fan of Triberr and have 2 tribes of my own for authors. The one suggestion I’d like to add is to think about your audience when you share. People tend to make the mistake of lumping everyone but the audience on Facebook is not the same audience on LinkedIn. My followers on Facebook tend to be primarily entrepreneurs and bloggers, while my followers on Twitter and Google+ are heavily weighted on the writing/publishing/book marketing side. I syndicate content accordingly keeping in mind that growing traffic is a good thing, but serving my audience as a quality resource is even better.

    • Hello Mrs Herald,

      Thank you for the comment. Yes, good advice. Choose the tribes and the members carefully and share only information in that niche for that audience. The problem is that when you reject a request from a wannabe member you may still find that person’s articles in your tribal stream, from another tribe. You have no control on other people’s tribes. However, you can mute a blogger which shares articles that are not in your niche.

      Have a wonderful day

  6. Silviu, I really like your point about not accepting everyone – something I did not do in the begininng and recently began to evaluate as my Tribe got too big and could not accept anymore. I got rid of the inactive folks that hadn’t blogged in months. I could have gone premium but am not quite ready for that yet. (In my wish list)…I really love Triberr, it also became like a reader to me as well. It’s nice to meet new bloggers there and follow favorites.
    I don’t understand the recently “stumbles” I’m seeing there, maybe Triberr should make Stumble Upon another option?

  7. I think the biggest takeaway especially for anyone starting their own Triberr tribe is exactly what you convey- don’t accept everyone that applies. I get a lot of people who apply and turn away just as much.

    Someone who has 100 followers on Twitter or a site with crappy content that’s just rehashed from another site won’t make it.

  8. Hi Silviu,

    This is a good, simple explanation of how to use Triberr. I joined a long time ago but got impatient when I didn’t understand right away how to use it. Now you’ve given simple instructions that I’m sure even I can follow. Thank you!

  9. Hi Silviu

    For a long, long time I just didn’t get Triberr at all.

    It was only when I got asked by a good online buddy to join a tribe that I actually started using it.

    I must admit, I don’t usually comment on Triberr, just read the post and then share it if I enjoyed it.

    I need to change that strategy but sometimes it’s so tempting to just skim posts and share them if they are any good because of time constraints.

    I will make it a task this week and going forward to change that though!

    I do belong to a few tribes where I have to mute several people. It’s not such a big deal because I do enjoy some of the other bloggers’ work in the tribe.

    In my tribes if someone isn’t active for more than a couple of months, they will be removed. You can only have 30 people in a tribe with the free account so there’s no room for anyone who doesn’t join in!

  10. Hey Silviu,
    Very thorough and interesting post on Triberr.
    I must say since I joined, and got invited to tribes I have kind of forgotten to pursue this is little more.
    Now I am thinking I should use some of your great advice and open my own tribe. I am often annoyed at a lot of unrelated stuff in the tribes I am a part of. I think many people let anyone in – like you say it’s difficult to say no but worth it.
    thanks for the post

    • Hi Ashley,

      Thank you for the comment. It took me a while until I decided to make my own tribe. I wanted to gain more experience. I think you should choose carefully your tribe members. It doesn’t mater how well you know that person. He (she) must be in your niche and active. What is most important (for a tribe chief ) is to have active people in his (her) tribe. This doesn’t necessarily mean people who upload posts every day but people who share the member’s posts every day.

      Have a wonderful week

  11. Hi Silviu,

    Reginald chan used the power of tribber to achieve a massive exponential growth for his blog within two months.

    I’ve been trying to figure a way out to achieve this feat using tribber and your post came as a solution provider.

    Thanks for sharing.

  12. Thanks Silviu for the honest comment. Will implement the noted observations.
