There are two things bloggers and website owners like to do more than anything else: 1) Write 2) Check their site stats. And that’s actually in reverse order.
Unfortunately, the beautiful upward curve of rising web traffic in your site stats usually doesn’t come without a ton of legwork on your part.
How many of these strategies have you used to try dragging an audience back to your site?
That’s where you try to leave a scintillating comment in the hope a reader will click the tiny link above your name that leads to your site. Few do.
That’s where you try to write a scintillating blog post for someone else’s blog in the hope the reader will click the link in your bio that leads to your site. Few do.
That’s where you try to leave a scintillating comment on Facebook – if possible with a “cute” baby picture or photograph of a cat singing – in the hope the reader will click the link to visit your site. Some do, but it’s mostly for the cat yodeler.
The pattern here is that the tried, tested and traditional marketing methods are inexact, unreliable (will they click, won’t they click?) but always time-consuming.
You need to market your site – but who has enough time for all the stuff you’re supposed to do?
As I mentioned previously in my mini Triberr tutorial, it’s had a phenomenal effect of visitor numbers for this site – doubling the numbers within a few days, then tripling them not long after.
In a nutshell, Triberr is a content syndication platform – you join, configure your blog to update Triberr automatically when you post new content, and then join Tribes of other bloggers who write on similar topics to you.
In the Tribal Stream you’ll see and be able to easily share the new posts from the group. And while you’re sharing someone’s post, someone else is sharing one of your posts.
It’s a great feeling knowing that for several days after I’ve published something new, my Triberr buddies will be sharing the link with their followers via Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn.
Obviously, some posts are more popular than others but the traffic stream is pretty consistent.
Quicker than Facebooking your life away
All this doesn’t take much more than 30 minutes a day.
In that time, remember, I get to make sure my posts get links and tweets galore, share some good quality links with my Twitter followers (which I’d want to do anyway) and do a little bit of networking.
Why didn’t I think of this?
The next best thing to having a brilliant idea of your own is to write a book about someones else’s. So here it is:
There’s a boatload of bloggers joining the platform daily, but many of them find it confusing to get started. I had the same problem myself when I first joined. So if that sounds familiar, this book was written with you in mind.
The idea is to get you up to speed quickly so you can enjoy extra traffic today and not next week when you’ve finally worked out what Triberr is and how to get the best out of it.
What’s in the book
* What Triberr is and how it works
* Complete set-up guide, including hooking it up to WordPress
* How to get your posts shared more often
* How to create your own auto-sharing Tribe that does your social networking for you
