Bloggers and content creators are always looking for new ways to grow their audience. One of the best ways to do this is by using social media automation tools like Triberr. Learn now how to use Triberr for your blog.
These tools allow you to share your blog posts on autopilot, which means that you can spend more time creating content instead of sharing it.
Social media automation tools like Triberr make it easy for bloggers and content creators to automate the process of sharing their latest blog post with a group of people who already follow them on social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn or Pinterest.
This way they don’t have to manually share each post individually across all these different platforms every time they publish something new.
In this post, I’ll show you the benefits of using Triberr & also guide you on how to set it up for your blog’s success.
But first, let’s answer:
Why Do I recommend Triberr Still Today?
I was inspired by Adrienne Smith’s post many years ago now.
So after months of working it in the beginning back in 2012, I was part of 6 tribes, ruler of 1 tribe with 125 tribemates.
As you can see below I’ve increased the tribemates and reach over the years and eliminated some tribes ⬇⬇
It had increased my traffic 2x on 2 of my blogs over the years.
Would you like to double your blog’s traffic?
Have you tried out Triberr?
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this traffic driver in the comments below!
If you are a blogger I highly recommend you do.
You must be quite excited by now by seeing my results.
Now, let’s discover:
What is Triberr?
According to Triberr themselves, they are a blog amplification and content discovery platform. Brands can use Triberr to Influence Marketing campaigns.
Presently they send over 2 million monthly visits to its members. They have over 50,000 tribes (groups of bloggers).
This awesome network always gets my latest blog posts shared out on Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, and YouTube.
Of course, I share many other relevant posts to my niche as well.
Still, we can’t forget that all-important 80/20 rule on content curation and social sharing.
Next, don’t get on Triberr when you are baking or you may burn the brownies as I did years ago.
A Little Triberr History
Now, a lot has changed since 2012 including the ownership of this blog sharing tool called Triberr. Actually, in February of 2016, it was sold to Charlie Patel of 99 Robots from New Jersey in the United States. (I wonder if any relation to Neal Patel?)
The network was originally founded by Dino Dogan and Dan Cristo.
My Awesome Experience With Triberr
Triberr has been around for almost a decade now and I’ve used it for that long.
This original blog post was originally published in 2012 on Inspire To Thrive.
Moreover, I decided to from time to time purchase some “boosts” for $5 and $15 and get more involved on Triberr.
After a few weeks, I noticed the blog traffic increased 2X! That is double the traffic.
Triberr’s mission is right on their home page “To empower groups of bloggers to effectively generate traffic, exchange content, and build engagement around their blog.”
I would admit they have done this. (Ownership has changed since I first started with Triberr, too).
Of course, you can’t be successful on Triberr if you are not on it or use it daily.
It does take some work.
Don’t all good things take time or money?
It’s another great way to find other bloggers in your niche and connect with them on your favorite social network.
I have been using Triberr more recently with LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube, and Twitter.
Why Use Triberr?
Triberr is a must-have blogging tool if you are a blogger today.
No doubt it’s the best way to generate shares of your latest blog posts.
For Youtubers: Triberr can be used to share your YouTube feed too!
Of course, it’s a great way to find other bloggers or YouTubers in your niche.
Above all Triberr’s a sharing cycle, social network, and newsfeed all in one.
It is considered to be a networking & influence marketing platform for bloggers. I got started on Triberr back in 2012.

- You will need the feed’s URL to put into your settings on Triberr. (You may include Medium as one of your blogs too!)
#6. Connect Your Social Media Profiles On Triberr
You can connect up to 3 social network accounts on the free version and more on the paid version.
One can have up to 7 social networks on Prime Lite and 21 different social networks on Prime Yearly.
They let you go into your settings and choose which networks you will share each tribe from. You can pick and choose depending on your plan.
Consequently, it’s a great way to use different social networks for different posts.
The schedule can be changed at any time.
As you can see I have to choose one from one of the tribes above.
It’s good to go in and check these out every so often.
#6. Add Some Of Your Friends To Get The Conversation Started
Next, you can invite some friends to Triberr.
Comment on others’ posts in a tribe.
Once your comment is seen, you will be noticed more on Triberr.
Start sharing others’ blog posts.
This is key!
Who wants to share with someone that never shares with you?
Read some of the posts first.
If you know the blogger you may feel comfortable sharing all their posts.
#7. Join Triberr Tribes or Create One For Yourself
You can start your own tribe or join another tribe in just 3-4 clicks.
Few Triberr Terminologies You Need To Be Aware Of
You can also promote your posts to be shown on the top of the feed.
You can spend $5 or $15. $5 is just for your tribe’s feed and $15 spreads out further.
$5 is the basic boost – A basic boost will display the promoted post in the stream of Triberr members who follow you or Tribemates who are members and followers in a Tribe you are a member of.
For $15 the Tribe is an amplified promotion.
A Tribe boost will also display the promoted post in the stream of Triberr members who follow you as well as in the Tribes relevant to the post’s category.
For example, if the category of your post is “Business” this promoted post will display in the Tribe activity of Tribes with a business category.
You may use your credit card or Paypal right through Triberr. I’ve done both and they do work well!
You can view your Triberr stats under your account, and then profile.
Not only can you see how many shares your posts got, but from where the clicks came from geographically.
For example, see my last post below on how to pick your domain name. See how it shows you these awesome stats?
The Triberr Queue
The Triberr queue is where all your shares show if they have been shared yet or scheduled to. This is crucial if you get out of hand with your sharing.
You can always clear your queue stream and start over. I had to do this when I added my Facebook Page as it was posting every 2 hours there.
Consequently, that is way too much posting on Facebook! So I cleared the queue and started over.
If you have trouble doing any of this on Triberr try it out with Internet Explorer.
For some reason, many things work better on that browser than on Chrome when using it. (Add images to your posts is something I must do on IE vs Chrome.)
Furthermore, Triberr support is always there for you and they usually answer by email within 24 hours.
There is a contact button on the button right-hand corner of the Triberr website – fill it out there and they will respond by email.

Common FAQs Regarding Triberr People Often Ask
Which Tribes to Start Or Join?
Start your own with like-minded individuals. All different kinds of people will ask to be in your tribe but you don’t have to let them in if they do not have relevant content. Have some fun naming your tribes.
Ultimately these names will get noticed and others will want to join your tribes.
After a few months be sure to clean out your tribe. Those that don’t share in months don’t deserve to be in your tribe1
Can I Mute Anyone on Triberr?
Yes, you may mute others on Triberr if they are not sharing relevant content in a tribe that you are on.
It’s easy to do and you can see how in this video:
Does Triberr Offer A FREE Plan?
There is a FREE version and a premium version.
I have been using the Premium version for almost the entire decade.
I have been grandfathered at the $125/year rate many years ago.
The Triberr free plan is for 1 blog and tribe only.
The lite plan is $20 per month and includes 7 tribes.
Lastly, the prime plan is $50 per month and includes 21 tribes with up to 50 members.
Which Plan Should I Choose? Free, PrimeLite, or Prime?
I used the free version for most of the years I’ve been on their platform.
The FREE version worked well for years. I recently went with Prime Lite to try it out and kick things up a notch here at Inspire to Thrive.
However, you can also incorporate more blogs when the paid versions if you have multiple blogs.
I like having the ability to share on other social networks like on your Facebook Page – something I miss when I used to use copromote.
Is Triberr A Great Alternative To the Old CoPromote?
When CoPromote went down and out, many users were wondering what else to use.
They asked the question on Twitter.
Actually, many of them were authors and musicians. There are niches there for them too on Triberr.
Which Is More Efficient & Value For Money: Dlvr.it or Triberr?
Regarding price, both these tools compete for neck-to-neck, but one extra added feature that I love about Triberr is that:
When you share their articles it tags the authors so they know you have shared it.
DLVR.it does not – see the example below.
— Lisa Sicard 👩💻🙂💭 (@Lisapatb) August 7, 2021
That’s why I won’t continue using it & preferably stick to Triberr. My trial DLVR.it runs out soon. Although I loved the RSS feed feature, now Agorapulse will soon be offering that too with tagging capabilities!
What Are Triberr Premium Versions?
You can form more tribes with the paid versions and have a lot more members per your tribes.
They let you connect more social networks with the paid version.
Then it also allows you to post to your Facebook page and post a lot more too.
Furthermore, if you like they allow you to have members of your tribes on auto-share. (I always like to approve content before sharing it with anyone).
On the other hand, be wary of sharing from anyone as some folks do get off topics on their blog posts.
There are some members who do not produce quality posts all the time.
Ultimately you will know after months of using Triberr whose posts you can share without any fear.You can form more tribes with the paid versions and have a lot more members per your tribes. #Triberr Click To Tweet
Triberr is an awesome way to meet new people and share quality content from different niches.
It’s also a great way to find helpful information from other bloggers on anything you need help with.
I would urge anyone who is interested in joining Triberr, to try out the TRIBERR FREE TRIBES for a month or two, before deciding on which plan is best for you.
Since I joined Tribber more than 10 years ago, the site has grown in many ways.
Furthermore, I’ve made friends and connections that go way beyond just bloggers.
You have no idea how much of a difference this has made in my blogging life.
If you’ve been on Tribber for a while, I’d love to get your thoughts too. 🙂
