Founders of triberr sound off on the services early successby Daniel Snyder on Apr 6, 2011 • 8:41 pm 16 Comments
What is Triberr?
Triberr is a web app that helps you Extend your Reach on twitter. Every time you publish a new post, everyone in your tribe will tweet it to their followers. And you do the same for everyone in your tribe. In chatting with founder Dino Dogan about why Triberr was developed he had this to say, “I’ve noticed that there are a lot of small and medium sized bloggers producing AMAZING content with little or no recognition. In fact, I think its fair to say that top 1% of superstar bloggers get 99% of attention whilst producing mediocre content at best. And attention in social media world = book deals, money, speaking engagements and countless other opportunities. Triberr is my attempt at evening the playing field and allowing great content to surface on its own merits. Triberr makes true engagement and quality content by one blogger to be shared with the audience of other bloggers that are at the same level of engagement and quality for mutual benefit all around. Both bloggers and their audience.”
Triberr offers a lot
Guaranteed Retweets, the opportunity to give back and a quick and easy way to offer quality content to your followers. If you belong to a tribe at triberr everytime you publish new content to an RSS feed everyone else in your tribe shares it on twitter. In the same way when people in your tribe publish new content you with automatically be tweeting it as well. Once triberr is setup it takes care of itself. Your RSS feed is importated automatically and new content is sent to your tribes members. It doesn’t require any maintenance at all. The fun part comes in building new tribes. Invite your friends with similar interests and build a community around yourself. Since triberr is hands off once setup you will most certainly have more time for the true engagements twitter was built for. It’s simply! You can follow the happenings with triberr at their blog, here.

How is triberr monetized?
Dino let me know that “Triberr is currently entirely self financed by myself (Dino) and Dan Cristo who is the lead developer on the project and the coding genius behind the platform. Our monetization plan is simple. Give incredible amount of value for free and charge small fees for optional extra services like replays, post manually, etc. Also, Triberr is building altruism into its business model. Altruism not as an afterthought and a “nice to do” but part of the core biz model from the ground up. More on that very soon.”
Triberr launched about a month ago in beta and is expecting to reach 1000 members by the end of April.
