Beginners Guide To Finding Tribes Via Bonfires
If you already know bloggers on Triberr then you can obviously just follow and join their tribes. If however you just joining the site having found it via search results, social media or this article then the best way to get started is to just search for relevant Tribes within your niche.
Steps To Finding Tribes
- Login to your Triberr Account and locate the Bonfires tab at the very top of your page. Click, this will take you to the Bonfires search page.
- Locate the “Looking For Tribes” Tab.
- Create a short but detailed post explaining the type of blogger/article writer you are, the niche market that your content relates and some background information about yourself. Give it a title that relates to the niche that you are looking for so for example “Looking for Social Media Tribes” or “Looking for Content Curation Tribes”
- Then you wait… BE PATIENT!
You can go through exactly the same process to find guest blogging opportunities but rather than selecting “Looking For Tribes” select “Looking For Guest Posts“ then continue with steps 3 and 4.
What will happen is that Tribe Owners or Chiefs as they are known will contact you and invite you to their Tribe or Tribes
Why? because as we mentioned at the start Tribes are groups of like-minded bloggers who are looking for the same as you. You reach out to the type of members that you are looking to connect with and you wait for them to contact you.
While you wait it is probably a good idea to Follow some Tribes in the hope that you get noticed and get an invite to join those tribes as well.
You will need to go into social media engagement mode social sharing across the supported social media platforms and making relevant comments that not just answer a topic but also ask questions.
You’re looking to build a conversation and get interaction and engagement to show the Chief that you will be a beneficial Tribemate. Hopefully, your helpfulness and knowledgeable engagement will earn you an invite to your chosen tribe.
