Don’t waste your time trying to learn how Triberr works on your own. Learn from the power players who have gained influence on the platform. Triberr bloggers with clout can teach you how to “tribe it up” intelligently.
I’ve been an active Triberr user for years and I have to say: these are a handful of the top users on the network I follow, and so I wanted to summarize my community growth lessons I learned from each of these Triberr power players to bump my own influence on Triberr.
Follow Triberr users who post on influential blogs
Amy Vernon. Amy asked me recently via a mastermind group note if I wished to contribute to her post on Inc.com about vacation tips for entrepreneurs. She actively uses various channels to connect with bloggers and entrepreneurs.
She’s a power broker on Triberr because she contributes to a world famous blog. Inc.com is about as good as it gets in all things entrepreneur. But that’s not the only reason you should follow Amy.
Tip I Learned from Amy: Follow Triberr users who post on influential blogs. Connect with tribemates through email and other mediums to build bonds, which will create various opportunities to extend your reach and influence.

Tip I Learned from Brent: Use your blog to feature tribe mates. Highlight these folks as “people to follow” on the network. You reap what you once sowed.

Respond to comments on Triberr to boost engagement
Adam Connell. Adam is the King of Triberr comments.
I’ve yet to see another Triberr user whose Triberr posts generate so much engagement.
He’s one of the few folks on Triberr who is REALLY all over the place. He can be spotted freely engaging on the network, responding to comments. He also carries on chats through email and social media sites.
Commenting is an effective tool to grow any community, and Triberr users who engage in commenting being authentic and thoughtful, win BIG! Here is a list of 10 commenting power players on the Web you should check out.
I’ve become friends with Adam because he’s a generous, thoughtful tribe mate. Like Amy, he uses email to make more powerful connections with fellow Triberr users.

Connect with pro bloggers with large following
Meghan Biro. Meghan is a serious power broker on Triberr in part because of her Forbes clout and monstrously large twitter following. She’s a frequent contributor on Forbes and she’s also a generous tribemate.
She uses her influence to promote other Triberr users, building massive good karma in various Triberr communities.
Even though I blog about blogging from paradise and Megan specializes in all thing HR tech and branding she’s freely tweeted many of my blog posts to her large network of influences, and I was happy to reciprocate.
Tip I Learned from Meghan: Connect with power broker bloggers. It sure doesn’t hurt if they have large, responsive followings on social media sites linked to Triberr.

Follow the pack leader
Dino Dogan. Dino runs the show. I’d be a fool not to mention him.
Yeah he’s a fellow New Jersey guy too but he’s a brilliant branding mind.
One look at Triberr and Dino’s personal blog proves this.
He also looks out for other influential Triberr users, so it’s wise to for any Triberr user to follow Dino and engage with him frequently.
Tip I Learned from Dino: Follow the Big Dawg of Triberr. ‘Nuff said.

Optimize your Triberr content feed
Mike Allton. Mike is Mr. Social Media on Triberr.
He’s a must follow guy for community growth Triberr tips because he engages and shares top shelf content, which gets high click through rates.
Mike stresses using website specific images on different networks. He walks his talk in that regard because his Triberr post images are perfectly tailored.
Check out this image Mike created on his blog recently. See what I mean by eye-catching?
Tip I Learned from Mike: Doing just a little bit of image creating leg work will increase your twitter shares on Triberr significantly.

Be generous to other Triberr users
N.N. Light. N.N. Doesn’t use her name.
She’s a pen name gal. She doesn’t use a smiling head shot for her avatar either.
Yet she’s one of the more powerful Tiberr users out there!
All because she supports her audience.
She generates immense Triberr karma by sharing hundreds of posts weekly and by supporting her tribe mates. She comments on Triberr posts. She engages freely on twitter too.
This is the #1 tip for becoming a Triberr power player: support other Triberr users!
Tip I Learned from NN: Be generous and be positive!

Boost your Tribe invites
Claudia Tavani. Claudia is an up and comer Triberr player, but her influence is growing fast.
Follow her because she engages as much as anybody on the network. .
I see her comments and social shares all over Triberr, which allowed Claudia to join new tribes, connect with more bloggers, and grow her community exponentially. Smart.
Engaging aggressively yields a few chief benefits: you’ll get more traffic and you’ll gain invites into more tribes.
Tip I Learned from Claudia: Comment extensively engaging Tribe chiefs to boost your tribe invites.

Connect multiple blogs and social profiles
Matthew Capala. Matt is one of the key players on Triberr because he uses SEO tactics to get more visibility and reach.
Matt uses various Triberr features to connect more than one RSS blog and Twitter accounts to feature more targeted content in a wider range of niche tribes.
In addition to established influence in top SEO, blogging, social, and marketing tribes with his SearchDecodoer.com blog, Matt was able to growth his community by expanding into new content areas. For example, he is a member of many productivity and travel tribes because he launched a new Sumo Hacks blog, which offers targeted, high-quality life hacking content.
Matt is also a serial relationship builder, and has invited many of his fellow tribemates to write and contribute to his popular blogs (like this one!). Check out my guest post on his Sumo Hacks: 10 Top Destinations for Laptop Entrepreneurs.
Stay in the Triberr stream
Daniel Newman. Daniel keeps the stream humming with top shelf content.
Rarely does a day pass when I don’t see his helpful, informative articles populating the Triberr stream.
He’s a Triberr power player because he’s the perfect example of how showing up frequently causes you to grow your community and increase the shares of your content.
I don’t follow his niche per se yet I still perceive him as a power broker on twitter.
Showing up is 80% of success. Guys and gals who show up outshine the folks who don’t show up.
Tip I Learned from Daniel: Stay in the stream.

Leverage the power of guest blogging
Like many other Triberr
power brokers she is a steady presence in the stream.
Sue uses the powerful concept of leveraging to be in many places at once.
Attract an army of guest posters, choose the best, publish guest posts and watch your tribe mates promote all of your posts aggressively.
Sue’s follow worthy because she doesn’t kill herself work-wise to get noticed on Triberr. She built up her blog and brand, accepted helpful guest posts and now she’s all over Triberr with fresh, relevant, inspired content flowing through her tribe streams.
Tip I Learned from Sue: Leverage. Be a presence on Triberr (without working yourself to the bone) by accepting guest posts.
