In this weekly feature, I’ll give just one suggestion of something to try. Or maybe I’ll tell you about one thing that helped me as a new author or one thing not to do. Regardless what I choose to talk about, I promise it will be simple because, after all, we are all very busy people…
Let’s talk about Triberr.
Triberr is a unique blog post distribution platform that groups alike bloggers together by tribes of their choosing. Bloggers (that’s us) auto-feed our daily posts into these tribes who then share our posts with their social networks. This takes our message and distributes it among a larger network. Our audience expands at the same time that we deliver a variety of content to our followers. It’s a clear win-win.
But for all this to work, strategically select your tribes to match your needs. The key is not to waste your time and to deliver content to an audience interested in what you blog about. Check out the bonfires to find others like you.
For those of us visual learners, I downloaded this image from Triberr. It uses Twitter as the example but Triberr has the capability to do the same thing with Facebook and LinkedIn. (And I hear there are more improvements in the near future to include other social networks.)
I recommend Triberr. Seriously, it’s the first on-line tool I’ve found that actually saves me time. And as an author, my time is precious. It’s measured in word counts, deadlines and line edits. There is no time to waste. (though do take a minute to leave a comment so I know if you tried it, if it works for you, if I helped you or at least so I know someone is reading my post!;))
If you take my advice and join Triberr, my tribe is appropriately called Romance Beckons. It’s for Erotic Romance Authors and has a few simple rules (most tribes do) so if that’s a fit, come on over and enjoy a s’more around the campfire!
