Indie authors need to leverage all kinds of social media in order to effectively sell their books. Running a blog has been a great way for me to get the word out about my horror books, mystery series and other writings, but it’s also a way to share information that helps my book marketing. And in that vein, I’ve got a great tip for you. It’s called Triberr. A friend and fellow author, Bert Carson, asked me if I’d post a video with Triberr tips, so here you go.
Indie Authors and Triberr
Before the video, some quick information about Triberr. It was started by Dino Dogan and Dan Cristo (you’ll see their pictures on the Triberr homepage). Their idea is simple: have a site in which everyone in your Tribe tweets your new blog posts, and you do the same for others in your Tribe. All you have to do it approve the tweets and Triberr does the rest. It’s a great way to build your blog following quickly and effectively. I’ve seen a huge increase in followers and comments since I joined Triberr.
Indie Author and Triberr Tips
I’ve created a short video with some Triberr tips (you can click Full Screen for better viewing). I am by no means an expert but I’ve gone over the basics, and included a few extra things that I do to help those in my tribe increase their blog exposure.
I noted in the video that sometimes you have to manually import your blog feed. You do this by clicking that black-and-white button I showed in the video. Go to settings-RSS settings. You’ll see your blog feed listed and Manually Import. Simple as that :).
You have to be asked to join Triberr but the community is growing so you can find Tribes to join. You can also request an invite. Visit their FAQ for more information.
Running a blog can be hard work. It would be great if I could just say hey check out my horror books! Buy my Reed Ferguson mystery series. And everyone would go and purchase the books. Alas, it’s much more difficult than that. But a blog can help get you there. So consider Triberr…and no, this is not an affiliate for me :).
What are your thoughts? Other Triberr chiefs, please post comments with your tips.
Triberr is growing. Share these tips with others (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, StumbleUpon and more :)) so we can all make Triberr successful. Thanks!
