A Guide to Getting Started on Triberr

 

Have you decided you’re ready to join Triberr, but are unsure how to get started? Then this guide is for you.

To get started, point your browser to www.triberr.com

how do I use triberr?

This is the Triberr home page. What you are looking at, are some of the hottest posts that have gone out lately on Triberr. They are the “most popular” if you will, based on shares, comments and the like.

If you click around on those tabs you will also be able to view the newest posts imported as well as the ones that are rising and may at some point become “hot”.

On the right side of the screen you see live conversations taking place. These are comments people are leaving on posts.

But you’re here to get started, so let’s do that. At the top of the screen you will see this:

register on triberr

 

Let’s go ahead and click that. We get a popup registration form. Fill it out and click the big green button to sign up. (It’s FREE!)

Triberr Registration Pop Up

 

And you are complete. Now it’s time to connect you twitter account. While triberr does work with the other two logins, the main method for Triberr users to share is Twitter. Connecting Twitter is the quickest way to get started.

 

Triberr Registration Complete

 

Connecting Your Twitter Account

Go ahead and click the twitter login button. If you aren’t signed into twitter you will need to do that, if you are already signed into twitter it will automatically connect that count and you will be taken to this screen:

triberr after registration

 

You are now looking at your tribal stream. When you have joined a tribe, this is where the posts you will need to approve will be as they come in.

At this point you will probably want to check out your settings because we need to set up your blog rss or nobody will be sharing your stuff. Settings are located under Account in the upper right corner.

Triberr Go to Settings

Go ahead and click it and you will land on the settings page.

Now we are going to switch over to my non-testing account to my real Triberr account. P.S. You are only allowed a single Triberr account. Multiple twitter and RSS feeds can be connected to a single Triberr account. More than one Triberr account is against Triberr’s TOS and can be cause for immediate removal.

Triberr Settings

Alright here we are on the settings page.

You need to fill out this info, so you have a complete profile. It will also be easier for people to invite you to their tribe if they can find you and see what you blog about, etc. So here’s where you’ll have your full name (not your blog name!). You can create a triberr user name and this will be how people will find you on triberr. (http://www.triberr.com/nicole.cook)

I’m In. I’m Now an official Triberr member, now what?

Sit back, write quality blog posts, and Triberr will help you maximize your audience and become part of an amazing community of bloggers. Eventually in your twitter mentions, you will begin to notice other people, some you might not even know or connect to on Twitter, will begin tweeting your blog posts. At this point, what you need to realize is that, Tribemate A has tweeted your post, so every follower that tribemate A has, is seeing that tweet, which is about YOUR blog post.

Imagine if you are in a tribe that has 10 members, and each member tweets your blog post – that’s 9 people tweeting your blog posts beside yourself. And every single twitter user that is following that person will see your tweet. Lots more exposure. My stats jumped my very first day on Triberr.

Let’s do a math lesson real quick, just to show you the numbers, since everyone is so into the numbers game. If you join a tribe of ten, there are nine people (besides you) that will be tweeting every blog post you write from that point. Let’s say that each of those tribe mates have at least 100 followers. (some have thousands, so I’m using a really low # here.) Nine people, tweeting your blog post x 100 followers each – That’s 900 people that have the potential to see your post! Imagine the increase in traffic if you are writing quality, entertaining posts with catchy titles. Yep, it’s going to be good!

    I think this guide could use a revamp. I didn’t read any one of the welcome pages because they didn’t look interesting.

    Now, of course, I realize I should have…but this guide doesn’t have the info!

    How about putting the info I didn’t bother to read somewhere…or giving me a link so I can find it?

  2. says

    I’m thinking about joining Triberr but I’m concerned about how much time it will take up. My 8-5 job plus my blog and the other blogs I read take a lot of time. It sounds like it would be worth it, but I don’t want to commit to something I can’t make time for.

    • says

      Well, I think it is one of those things that Triberr will only work for you if you are willing to put in extra time. That said, I sign in the morning and approve all the posts that have come in. They go out automatically after I hit approve. So no work all day. The problem is, I don’t believe in approving every single post, so I do spend some time looking at the posts and finding out which ones are worth going out right then. This takes me about 10-15 minutes.
      I repeat the same process in the evening though I usually have more time then so I also spend more time getting to know my tribemates and talking to them both on triberr and on twitter.
      I think it will depend on how you actually plan to use triberr. We’d certainly love to have you.

  3. says

    Thanks for putting this together. Now I have to really dig in and see how much time I’ll be allotting to it. If I can get value out of only a few minutes a day, then perhaps I can make it work. There are just too many other sites out there now all clamoring for our ‘social sharing’ time, so for me it’s all about value and efficiency.

  4. says

    I have not been able to log on at work. They have twitter blocked, and I blog on breaks and sometimes during my lunch. Is there another way for me to log on other than twitter. I can hit it through my phone, but it is so small and uncomfortable I would prefer the computer.
    help!!!

    • says

      There is not another way to log on. Since you need Twitter to use Triberr, they decided to make that the method for signing on. You could always leave this exact comment in the bonfires area under feedback and suggestions and let them know it’s a problem for you.

    Hi Nicole,
    Thanks for this information. It’s been such a great help. I’m new – been blogging three months, tweeting eight weeks and it’s been a steep, but fantastic, learning curve.
    Now, I’m ready to go the next step, but the problem is I’m on blogger.
    Can I still join triberr or do I have to be on WordPress?

    • says

      Yes, you can still join Triberr. All you need is your RSS feed – that has to be assigned to Triberr so it can pull your posts. Anyone who has an RSS feed can join Triberr. I hope you will join, I look forward to seeing you there!

      • says

        Thanks. I do have an RSS feed, so I just joined. Am figuring out which tribes to join & roughly how to do it. I thknk I’m a prime candidate for the ‘Idiot’s Guide’…

  6. says

    I tried following all the steps, but it simply doesn’t work! It doesn’t record any of my posts or allow me to go through the relevant steps to become a member. I HATE THIS SITE!!!

  7. says

    Thank you Nicole, your posts have been a great help so far. I have manually imported some posts and they are now showing in ‘My Posts’.

    (I need to look deeper into RSS as it does’nt seem to be doing it automatically at the moment).

    How am I able to share those posts with my tribe? They don’t show in my ‘Sent Stream’ or my ‘Tribal Stream’.

    Thank you

    Harvey Black

    • says

      If they are more than a week old, they won’t cue to send. Unfortunately there is little you can do at this point, but moving forward all should be good. You said you manually imported the posts – as long as you don’t also have the Triberr plugin, they will continue to import on their own. I hope that helps. :)

  8. says

    I wanted to update my badge settings. At the end there was a section “grab the code”. It didn’t tell me what to do with the code, though.

    Can you please tell me?

    • says

      The code is offered so you can put your badge on your blog in the widget area if you’d like. Some like to show off the badge, and some don’t really care – so it’s completely optional and up to you. Hope that helps.

  9. says

    Thank you Nicole, I’m a shiny new member and your post has re-enforced my feeling that it’s a good decision to join Triberr – looks like a fun way to take over the world (whoops did I say that outloud) seriously – a fun way to interconnect with like minded people if you’re willing to put the work in. Thank you again for making Triberr a little clearer. Guess I’ll dive in now!

    Julia – in a tribe of her own but hoping that’ll all change soon:D

  10. says

    Oops…I never saw the welcome/intro section. Now I can’t get back to it. What are the four steps that need to be taken to set it up correctly?

  11. says

    Hi, thanks for all the guides. I think I’m getting the picture — sort of. I haven’t actually joined triberr yet, but think I’d like to. However, I have some questions . . .

    1. First, how do I access my RSS feed? What’s the URL — where can I find that?

    2. Second, I am mostly in Facebook and LinkedIn. I’ve never figured out Twitter, and because of the word limit, have never really wanted to. It’s confusing to me :) I don’t mind being retweeted at all, but I’d prefer to build up FB and LinkedIn. Posts that I would simply click to post onto Twitter, I may also like to post on the other sites. How would I do that? And is Twitter the only platform you operate in?

    3. Do I understand correctly that I always have a choice as to which posts I syndicate to my own followers

    4. I am in a specialized niche (spiritual issues). Are there others who write with a God-perspective in triberr, whose blogs I would feel comfortable syndicating to my own audience, and they could syndicate to theirs?

    Thanks for answering!

  12. says

    I’m not sure what (if anything) that I missed upon setup. I can see my blog posts from my RSS feed but that’s about it. I havent been able to join a tribe yet. Can someone please help me?

    • says

      The intro steps have since been replaced by more a more automatic process, the steps weren’t necessary so they were deprecated. I will be updating all of this info soon.

  13. says

    Has Triberr changed since this post…as soon as I logged in and signed up using Twitter I didn’t get any of these screens to pop up.

    • says

      Yes. Triberr is always changing and growing, so often times I have to update these posts. I have many, many new posts coming soon that will update these guides. Sorry I didn’t have better info for you, but if you’re signed up, and you’re in, you should be good to go. Thank you!

  14. says

    Thanks. Even though parts of this post are a bit outdated, I gained a better understanding of what Triberr is and does from this post and the comments than from the official Triberr site itself.

    • says

      I know. Unfortunately Triberr is an ever evolving platform that changes from day to day, week to week. It is nearly impossible for me to keep up with all the changes on a regular basis, but again, it should help someone at least get started. I’m glad you found it helpful and sorry it took so long to respond!

  15. says

    Hello Nicole,

    I am an author and genealogy researcher. I have been tweet blogs no one has tweeted my blogs I am doing something wrong?

  16. says

    Ahh.. so its kinda like syndication where everyone automatically share each other’s posts through twitter and such… Its still a bit confusing if you ask me though

  17. says

    This was really helpful. Thank you so much for putting this together. It reduced my learning curve to about 5 minutes instead of something much longer.

  18. says

    Do I understand correctly that I simply post stuff on my linked blog and hope to be discovered? Or I join a tribe as a follower and again hope to be discovered?

    • says

      You join tribes that fit your blogging niche. If you have everything set up correctly, once you are in a tribe your posts will automatically import in for your tribemates. They will share your stuff and you should be sharing theirs. Hope that helps.

  19. says

    Thank you for writing this blog. I just set up my account for the firm I work for and l was a little confuse. How does triberr know when a new blogs has been posted? Is there another step I missed or does it do it automatically ?

    Madeline

    • says

      Hi Madeline,
      It does it automatically once you have your RSS feed set up correctly which you can do in your settings. You will see your posts appearing on your profile page which is usually how you can tell it’s set up correctly. Hope that helps.

  20. says

    Hi Nicole,

    That was a great help with very good and broad explanation. I was wondering how to use triberr and fortunately came across this article. So, just becoming a member and updating info in settings/profile is enough right ? Now need to personally post each and every links right ?

    • says

      Nope, once your RSS feed is pulled in, it will do it automatically. But you also need to be sharing others stuff, or people will stop sharing yours. Hope that’s helpful.

  21. says

    Hi Nicole,
    This is a very helpful guide to Triberr. I just registered myself with them and am exploring the features. Thanks for the great tips.

  22. says

    Hi Nicole,

    I noticed you mention if you don’t share people’s content, they won’t share yours – makes sense.

    But, what if I’m incredibly selective? Obviously I only want to share stuff I’d manually share outside of Triberr? Compared to others stats, this is going to look negative, although it’s actually a positive?

    Thanks

  1. [...] For those of you who aren’t already a member of Triberr and would like to join, you can start by creating a free profile and then following some tribes that interest you. As a follower, you’ll be able to see and share blog posts from that tribe. (Their posts will show up in the tribal “stream”.) You can engage with the members, comment and share their content. The tribe chief can invite you to be a full-fledged member and then your blog posts will become part of the tribal stream too. For more information, check out Nicole Cook’s guide for getting started on Triberr. [...]

  2. […] After signing up for a Triberr, go to your profile, add a photo, and set up automatic sign-in with Twitter and/or Facebook.  Update your profile to include a bio, your social networks,  and check to make sure your RSS feed is streaming through correctly.  My friend Nicole does a better job of walking you through the process of signing up, so be sure to check out her tips. […]

  3. […] In order to get into the meat of this case study I don’t want to spend too much time explaining the basics. Suffice to say that Triberr is a social media platform where bloggers join tribes, in which tribe members’ RSS feeds display their posts, and people decide whether or not to share them. For more information check out Nicole’s guide. […]
