The Start-up that didn’t know it was a Start-up
I’m beta-testing an app that could be. Huge. Killer. The stuff VCs line up for! It’s called Triberr.
Once you’re signed up and set up, Tribber automatically promotes new blog posts through the Twitter feeds of everyone in your tribe. Yours too.
My blog reach went from 10,000-ish to 100,000-ish in sixty seconds. Ok, 60 seconds may be an exaggeration. It’s more like 24 hours if you get an invite into the right tribe. In other words, my blog posts are being seen by 10 times more people on Twitter this week than last week. Can you say, WOW, with me? I knew you could…
A Triberr invite is the kind of designer crack that people will beg for. Perform all kinds of favors for. Robert Scoble (aka @scobleizer) wishes he had some of this to pass out to the hotties. <snicker>
Honestly, I don’t know who else is doing it now (helping bloggers promote their blog), but I remember Buzzfuse. Those guys had a kick ass concept for blog promotion. If only they could have stuck it out. I feel for you guys. Really. Been there. Done that.
Remember the Alamo!
Triberr potentially brings some deep, new cool to Twitter at just the right time. Because the cool at Twitter is running on fumes – two years old.
Who’s on Tribber now? I know you need to know. <grin> Below is a random sample. Or not. The point is that there’s a lot of beta testers on Triberr. And you just might recognize one or two.
Aaron Lee: 163,913 Twitter Followers
Ruhani Rabin: 67,382 Twitter Followers
Danny Brown: 28,092 Twitter Followers
For those yahoos involved in the MLM spam that I love to hate, your chance to finally make your grubby MLM dreams come true is here. At long last, your ship has come in!
Actually, I hope not.
Because an MLM train is exactly what can derail Triberr from doing big things.
If anything ML something should be forever. It’s MLK, Jr. Period.
I’m reluctant to explain the Deep Cool here just in case Triberr’s founders, Dino Dogan and Dan Cristo, don’t know what it is. As long as I keep it on the hush hush, they’ll have to bring me in on the ground floor. Or not. <grin>
Anyway, as the app is structured now, the deep social signal remains to be unlocked. But I can say that the deep has everything to do with social media and the social web. It’s all about empowering people to be more social with less effort- but not less heart.
Fortunately, the human heart’s capacity was always scalable. It was built that way. It can reach to infinity and beyond.
Through my beta testing, I have some invites to pass around. If you want an invite from me, tweet me at @Faryna on Twitter. Let me know what you blog about. Good to great writing is my chief concern for getting an invite from me.
You can also ask for an invite here: http://triberr.com/ext/profile-tribe.php?tid=9
Before you click that link, think up a great reason why the tribe can’t continue without you.
In my humble opinion, Anubis is the best tribe ever on triberr. Because I have personally verified most of the blogs in the Anubis tribe. The posts being promoted through my feed don’t embarrass me.
Here’s a video of Dino Dogan explaining Triberr:
I actually have nothing to do with Triberr beyond my beta testing. I don’t know Dino Dogan or Dan Cristo beyond exchanging a few tweets and emails. Nor have I received any kind of compensation whatsoever for being genuinely excited about Triberr’s social potential.
