I realize that I am working harder than ever to stay on top of things. And, I realize that I need different tools to help me stay in control and get things done. I need to ship, every single day. I can’t just keep thinking about a solution, or keep testing alternatives, without launching. If I did, I wouldn’t get paid and I wouldn’t be able to have this amazing life.
I’m telling you this during my summer vacation. I’m living in a tent, relaxing and enjoying life, more than ever. But, what I’m part of is not considered work. It’s more a life style, and it’s what I’m meant to do.
That’s how I look at it.
I have been writing about how I do my marketing, and how I continue to focus on content and storytelling as my way of doing what I love to do. But, what I haven’t been writing that much about, is how important relationships are. Well, I have written several posts about it, but it seems to me that it’s been a while.
That’s exactly why I want to introduce you to Triberr.
What is Triberr?
I have been a member of Triberr for a long time, and my first thought when I joined, was that I was thinking of the book Tribes by Seth Godin, and I thought that Triberr was a community of people trying to connect and/or build their own tribes online. And, I don’t think that I was wrong.
Triberr is a platform to meet and connect with people with the same interests as you, and it’s a way to share their content and for them to share your content in social media.
I joined for free, to meet people with the same interests, and to get help to share my content and to help others share their content. Everything about Triberr has been working great. And, I believe that we are part of something huge.
Why did I upgrade to Prime?
I believe that the Triberr that I’m part of today, is just the beginning. Now, that we’ve manage to connect that many people to this already huge community, and we’ve started sharing the content, it’s just a matter of time, before Triberr will be launching something much bigger.
I haven’t talked to Dan and Dino (the founders) about this, but I have a feeling that something amazing will happen during 2013.
Triberr has been developed into a much more sophisticated community, a lot more people have joined, and I have met some brilliant people. I have been a free member forever. But, a few days ago, I decided that I wanted to become a prime member. I wanted to start paying for everything I have been receiving for free. I have received so much help from the two founders; both Dino Dogan and Dan Cristo have been amazing. So, my first thought was that I want to give something back to them, no matter what I was going to get in return as part of my paid membership.
I have to admit. I have been a free member, and the free membership has worked better than anything I have paid for. That’s why I wasn’t sure why I really need to upgrade. But, I did it anyway.
The first thing I have noticed with my upgrade is that I have a new tribe, an automatic tribe. If you join my tribe, you’ll start sharing my blog posts automatically (on Twitter, and on Facebook and LinkedIn if you want to add more of your social profiles. You’re still in control, because you can leave the tribe when ever you want.). If you’re already sharing my content, this will be a lot easier for you. You don’t have to push a button to get it done. I’m a member of several automatic tribes, but only for people and content I trust and share anyway. Like I said, it makes it a lot easier.
And, I have more options. I get to control more tribes, than if I didn’t upgrade. I’m not going to go into all the details, because, the reason I joined in the first place, and the reason I upgraded are simple:
I believe that Triberr is a fantastic community, and I have a strong belief that Triberr will change the world we live in.
That’s it. And that’s why I decided to finally start paying.
