Follow Friday (#FF) & Triberr – In case U didn’t know…(+Alanis!)

Posted: January 27, 2012 in Uncategorized

Most folks who use Twitter to make connections, build their platform, enhance their brand, and otherwise hold out their grubby hands and beg for cash (incl. me) are familiar with Triberr.  But some of you newbies may not have had the pleasure of joining a “tribe”.  (disclaimer – I know very little about Triberr, but I do know enough to be dangerous.)

Triberr is a NEW social media site that builds on an OLD (and proven) social media marketing concept.  It allows like minded folks to band together in tribes (catchy, huh) and essentially cross promote tribe members’ blog posts.  It is one of the fundamental concepts of Twitter and marketing in general  1. – You get more notice when other folks talk about you… and  2. –  A group of voices banded together is more effective at getting out the message than a solo voice.  (unless you have a voice like Alanis,

…pause….she’s my fav….  Alanis video break, go ahead, I’ll wait….   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bgeqw7s00xg&feature=relmfu    *big smile* ;); )

I was fortunate enough to have been invited to join two tribes.  Being a member of these groups not only gets my message out to many more “tweepies”, but it has also strengthened some of the friendships that sprouted due to Twitter.   Triberr has a home page where members can post messages to each other, comment on blog posts, and exchange pleasantries (and a rant or two).   Triberr moved me to a more “connected” relationship with my tribe members than I would have had just via my connection to these folks on Twitter (and some on FB).  This enhances my desire to support them and shout out their achievements.   Hey – I think that’s what friends are for, right?

Bottom line –  spend some time learning about Triberr and building your own group(s).  All of us writing folk are sold on the fact that Twitter delivers a plethora (sp?) of connections to other writers, which  is vital for our profession.  Triberr definitely ramps things up quite a bit.

Take your “writing game” to the next level.  You’ll benefit and so will your friends.   (TGIF)   (Thank God I‘ve Friends )      (and Alanis videos)
