Becoming a Top Influencer with Triberr – an IBM #SmarterCommerce Case Study
I was invited to speak at IBM’s Smarter Commerce Global Summit recently and was treated like royalty.
Tami, the IBM CMO, and Michael DiTanno, her right-hand (or in the parlance of Game of Thrones, Hand of the King), as well as the rest of the team are a class act all the way and need to have monuments erected in their image.
But this post is not about that. This is about becoming a top influencer through Triberr.
I always said that Triberr is an influencer factory.
You go in with quality content, tribe up with the right people, and 3 weeks later, you have more traffic and attention than you know what to do with.
I’m a Nobody
I really am a nobody.
- If you search for keywords like social media, marketing, blogging…you wont find me on the first (or 5th) page on Google.
- I’ve made zero effort to do SEO even tho I have a strong SEO background.
- My professional life prior to Triberr was as a Network Engineer, which has nothing to do with this Social Media business.
- For few years I helped develop social media and marketing strategies for people whom I really can’t discuss. Total opaque, behind the scenes, type of situation.
I started DIYBloggerNET in 2010 and since then I’ve done everything wrong:
- I don’t have a regular publishing schedule.
- I write sometimes long, sometimes short posts, sometimes audio, sometimes video, sometimes…
- I don’t have RSS or email subscription anymore (there is still a box on the side that captures the email, but thats going away soon).
- My blog gets very little traffic. Very, very little.
Few things I think I did right.
- I try to publish good shit.
- Atomic Tribes are fundamentally better structured for blogging success than RSS/Email
- Traffic that I do get is from the right people.
I’m No Jay Baer
My point is this. I’m no Jay Baer.
Jay is a maven in marketing and social media space. He has a long and storied history. He is an author, speaker, and all around nice guy.
And not because of who I am, but because of Triberr. It’s only because my posts get distributed by my tribemates that I’m able to shine. How is this possible?
Triberr is built on the principles of maximum leverage, and it’s built for bloggers, because…well, I’m a blogger.
It’s a way for new bloggers to get more traffic, more attention, more recognition, in a real and measurable way. So get on Triberr now.
Thank you IBM and Kred for taking the time to quantify what Triberr can do for someone who doesn’t have a giant blog, a ton of followers, or ubiquitous industry presence.
