Tips on Using Triberr.com to Expand Your Reach

triberr reach

Recently one of my followers mentioned that although she was interested in Triberr.com, she didn’t feel she understood it enough to maneuver it and utilize it to her benefit. Well in response to that comment, I thought I’d give some pointers about using Triberr to benefit you and help you spread the word.

First – get connected. This means sign up and then start checking out different Tribes.
Once you’re signed up and have your profile established, click on BONFIRES at the top of the site. Under Bonfires, you’ll find everything you need from support threads to Tribes looking for Tribemates and Tribemates looking for Tribes. Along the right side, look for TRIBE UPS, if you’re looking for Tribes to join and LOOKING FOR TRIBES, if you’ve got a Tribe you’re trying to expand. Once you’re here, simply peruse the thread and seek out Tribes related to your blog or the site you’re promoting.

Two – don’t be afraid to reach out to others on Triberr. I’ve found that the folks who join Triberr are, for the most part, the most sharing, and friendly folks on the Internet. Ask to join a Tribe, the worst that can happen is that Tribe doesn’t accept you. How often will that happen? In my experience, not very often.

Three – if you’re enterprising enough and don’t mind getting involved with the occasional squabble among Tribemates, or the occasional whiner, feel free to set up your own Tribe and then put it out there in a thread under BONFIRES that you’re looking to expand your Tribe. Each one of us has the opportunity to be the chief of our Tribe.

Four – once you join a Tribe, share! Even if you don’t have time to read every post, it only takes a swipe of your cursor to share a post. The more you share, the more Tribemates will share your posts in return. It’s what Triberr is about. And try to do it at least once a day. I visit Triberr at least three times over the course of a day.

Five – if you want more exposure, feel free to purchase a plan that will push your posts to the top of the Stream, allow you to join more tribes, and be the chief of more Tribes of your own. There is power in being in charge.

Six – if ever you have a problem, the support team at Triberr.com is the most awesome on the web. If ever something isn’t working correctly, your posts aren’t being pulled into the Stream, or any other problem is plaguing your acct, feel free to check out the Support Bonfires. You can find them easily by clicking on HELP under Account, and then CONTACT US. There you’ll find the link to the BONFIRES FORUM where you can post your problem or perhaps find others who are having the same trouble. If no one else seems to being having the same trouble shooting problem, simply post your problem and then copy the URL for your post and Tweet it on Twitter tagging Dan Cristo at @dancristo. You’d be surprised how fast these guys act on things if they know there’s a problem or you can shoot an email to support@triberr.com
If for any reason, you can’t maneuver through to the Bonfires Forum, bookmark the following link:

http://triberr.com/pages/bonfires.php?cat=23

Seven – make sure you’re following Triberr @Triberr, @dancristo, @dinodogan, and @abx at Twitter so you’ll know what’s happening and what’s new.

Eight – have fun, get involved, explore the site, check out the Campaigns for opportunities to earn some cash, and feel free to chat with folks. It’s all about connecting.

If you’ve got more questions about using Triberr.com, please feel free to ask me. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll try to find it for you.

Happy Sharing, Writing, Reading, and Enjoying Life.

NAVIGATING THE WORLD OF E-BOOK PUBLISHING by Deena Rae Schoenfeldt #EBBB

A fellow blogger, Deena Rae Schoenfeldt, has written a book for aspiring authors and I believe it is an absolute must have for those of us venturing into the world of self-publishing. I’ve got my copy. Please check it out and do a small thing to support an indie author and a huge thing for your future success.

NAVIGATING THE WORLD OF E-BOOK PUBLISHING

E-BookBuilders Basics of Getting Started in Indie Publishing

by Deena Rae Schoenfeldt 

Genre: Non-Fiction

Description: With a no-nonsense, conversational style, Deena Rae of E-BookBuilders gives advice to aspiring authors about indie publishing. Filled with information about social media, pricing, formatting styles, covers, reviews and platforms (to a name a few) there is a wealth of information for the novice author. Even experienced authors and publishers will find this book helpful and informative.

With sections such as ‘Authors — Quit Doing This!’, ‘In Praise of Audio(books)’, ‘Twitter Primer for Authors’, and ‘Should You Use Amazon’s Author Central’, Deena Rae gives detailed information that anyone in the industry of publishing should know and consider.

Whether you are just starting on your publishing journey, considering entering the literary world or have 30 books for sale, there is something for everyone in this book.

About the Author:

E-BookBuilders is the online alias of Deena Rae.  She was born and raised in Texas — home of bluebonnets, boots, beef, and big hair — into a family that was in the printing and publishing industries.  Her father was a computer programmer for major newspapers when the equipment took up whole rooms and mother has been a publisher for almost 30 years — trying, unsuccessfully, to bring her into the family business.  She is a second-generation genetically perfected super-nerd.

She was happily living her life, having three third-generation genetically perfected super-nerds herself, but then through a series of  events (unfortunate and fortunate), she officially joined The Book Connection — her mother’s publishing and packaging company — as the Digital Director, to create the e-publishing division in 2011. Her computer skills, willingness to help authors, love of literature, no-nonsense attitude and quick wit has helped shepherd many authors through the maze of digital publishing.

Through her work with E-BookBuilders, Deena Rae has been able to meet authors and writers from all over the world and in every genre imaginable.  She has a biting wit, obscure sense of humor, awareness of the absurd, and a love of literature all which led to the creation of Bluebonnets, Bagpipes and Books, the #NSFW publishing discussion podcast she produces and hosts with Janet Wrenn and Peter Burnett. Her no-nonsense attitude makes for some hilarious discussions and plenty of “Oh my God, did she really just say that?” moments. Sometimes it is as if there is no filter between her brain and her mouth. But if she likes you she tries to be nice — sometimes. Deena also has the safe-for-everyone author interview show, B3’s Bookworm. You can find her most hours of everyday attached to her computer either researching, tweeting on her 6 accounts, posting on her different Face-book timelines and pages, coding e-books for her fabulous friends/clients or with her nose buried in her Kindle reading.

TRIBERR – Tribe Up and Increase Your Reach

triberr

Triberr.com is a social media platform for bloggers that will drive tons of traffic toward your website’s blog. Over the years, Triberr has grown and evolved. It has become a powerful traffic tool. I personally use Triberr and now have a reach of over 530K on Twitter. I highly recommend using Triberr.

Triberr.com, created by two enterprising young men, Dan Cristo and Dino Dogan, assists bloggers in reaching their greatest audience from one site. Triberr is a community full of all types of bloggers, who blog on a multitude of subjects, and carry all levels of experience. These bloggers seek out like kind and join together in groups, known as tribes. Most tribes have a common interest or community, meaning that everyone in the tribe blogs about similar topics. For example, the tribes of which I belong generally blog about books, reading, writing, and publishing.

triberr reach

You can join tribes, or start your own tribe and invite others to join you – it’s all up to you!

Each tribe member tweets (in addition, they can now post to Facebook and LinkedIn if they choose to do so) other members’ blog posts easily by sliding their cursor over a share button to send the link out to all of their own followers.  The tweet is then scheduled to go out using a frequency that can be changed under the settings tab. Triberr is a place to make new friends, find other bloggers within your community, Reasons to join Triberrnetwork with bloggers of all levels and styles, and help others by spreading the word about them, while they, in turn, help spread the word about you. What Triberr really is, is a community. A meeting place of like-minded bloggers. A place to gain support, advice, and establish both friendships and relationships, while expanding your footprint on the Internet as well as increasing your role as a blogger.

Promoting your blog can become as easy as publishing it, allowing Triberr to pick it up from your feed, having your fabulous Tribemates read it and sharing. In return, you do the same for them. Easy!

Recently, I had a problem with my feed for this blog and was going a little nuts over it. Dan and Dino were quick to respond to a simple tweet with a link to my Bonfire post. Bonfire is the forum used by Tribemates to air problems, seek answers, and find new tribes. Thanks to Dan, my feed was back up and running properly in mere cyber-minutes. Now that’s support you can count on, and knowing I have backup like that builds high confidence that my posts will continue to be seen and shared. My Tribemates are awesome, friendly, caring, and share crazy – I can’t thank them enough for all that they do to help me promote both this blog and my review blog, Unwrapping Romance.

I highly recommend joining Triberr.com, getting involved, and broadening your reach while meeting extraordinary people. So check out Triberr and TRIBE UP!

If you’d like to learn more about how Triberr works, how easy it is to sign up and get started, check out A GUIDE TO GETTING STARTED ON TRIBERR. Also, it’s FREE to join! So what are you waiting for?

Happy Writing and Promoting!

More Twitter Tips From Someone Just Learning!

Don't Be Rude - Etiquette is the Way to Go! Even on Twitter!

Don’t Be Rude – Etiquette is the Way to Go! Even on Twitter!

A not so unusual thing happened to me one day on Twitter. After sharing another blogger’s post, the author of the book being tweeted about sent me a reply thanking me for requesting a copy of her book to review. I hadn’t requested a copy, and at first was quite annoyed by her assuming I had. I replied, telling her I hadn’t done so and to please don’t do that again. I didn’t want to be nasty about it as some folks can be but wanted her to understand that what she did was wrong. She immediately apologized and told me she was still learning the ins and outs of Twitter and hadn’t realized she had replied to me as well or that it was a share.

My tip to you, no matter who you are:  You must be aware of to whom your reply tweets are going.  If you don’t wish to reply to all names on the reply comment, remove the ones not involved. That’s my tip for you. But the wonderful lady, who I gave a slap on the Twitter hand, wrote a wonderful post called

TWITTER 101: How to Navigate on Twitter

and it’s full of more tips on using Twitter safely and nicely. Please stop by The Notebook Blogairy and take a gander. I think you’ll come away with a new sense of Twitter etiquette and a chuckle.

I had planned my next tips to be about Facebook but couldn’t pass on this. I’ll get back to you next week with my tips on USING FACEBOOK FOR PROMOTING and hopefully, they’ll keep you from screaming at your computer screen and wanting to write FB horrible nasty letters. I’ve been there and done just that.

Happy writing! :-)

Getting the Most Out of Twitter for Promoting

Image

So you’re going to try social networks to reach new readers. Yes, I mentioned a few means in the last post and I hope you check some of them out – especially Triberr – but now you might be wondering the best way to go about using them so as not to make a nuisance of yourself.

It’s a fabulous means of getting lots of followers and lots of attention but if you inundate the feed with constant mention of your blog, your website, or heavens forbid, your book, you might as well just shut down now. Using Twitter to get your book, or your blog, lots of attention is why I mentioned Triberr. Using Triberr and with the help of your tribemates, you’ll reach even more people more quickly without having to spam the feed with lots of tweets from your account.

Some tips to using Twitter:

Start following people who might be interested in what you’re about and who might be willing to help spread the word for you.

Talk to these people – I know it’s not easy to carry on a conversation on Twitter but with practice, you’ll learn how to use few words to get your point across and to utilize your CONNECT feed to keep up with those who might be talking about you and to you.

Get involved with bloggers, reviewers, and publishers on Twitter. Follow them. Participate in Twitter Chats, and follow the bloggers’ blogs.

Don’t, and I emphasize this greatly, DON’T constantly push your book on everyone on Twitter. If you do even ten tweets a day about your book, I guarantee you that your followers will start falling away. Try a tweet in the morning, maybe another late afternoon, and another in late evening. You’re going to hit everyone you want to see your tweets. There are morning Tweeters, afternoon Tweeters, and those night owls and folks from down under who will be riding the Twitter feed.

So remember, when using Twitter to promote your book, your blog, or your website, even if you’re telling folks about something exciting – do it sparingly, do it politely, and do it with fun! Oh, and don’t forget about Triberr. It’s a place of promotion magic.

Happy Tweeting!
