Last year I created a Triberr account for the first time. Now I have a reach of over 29 million, one of the largest in the entire network. The beautiful thing is I have done it with minimal effort and a tiny Twitter following. On Triberr, my posts appear in the feed of 500+ bloggers, across 38 tribes, which collectively have a Twitter reach of 29 million followers. In this post I will show you how anyone (yes anyone) can create a large Triberr following with the right strategy.
Why do we blog? Do we blog for the money? Maybe some of us do. Or, do we blog for the love of writing and hope that it pays the web hosting bill? There are probably many of us who are in between those two points. Regardless of where we are on the spectrum, it is nice to make a few bucks, right? So, how do we do that without spending all of our time on making money and none of the time on the creativity of the writing, let alone, the technical aspects of maintaining a blog?
At a time when Facebook is no longer cool (hey, Mark Zuckerberg has even admitted it!), now couldn’t be better to hone your skills as a master Tweeter.

Let’s face it. You would love to double your email list in the next 90 days. But there are so many different things you could do to grow your list, you don’t know where to start. You’re overwhelmed.

According to the latest statistics from YouTube, “300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute”. This is just one of the many staggering facts and figures surrounding the success of the internet’s most prominent video marketing platforms. Here’s another fascinating factoid: “According to Nielsen, YouTube reaches more US adults ages 18-34 than any cable network.” It’s funny how things change, when I was in that age group cable TV was the next big thing, and today it seems everyone wants to cut the cord. With that said, these days when you think about the ever changing landscape of social media and content marketing, I’m sure there’s no doubt in your mind that YouTube is here to stay.
It’s always interesting to try new social media management tools, so I was thrilled to get the chance to test Rignite. While the tool is aimed predominantly at enterprises, bloggers can try it for free (I’ll tell you how later in the review). If your blog is your business, there’s a lot to like about Rignite.
