Blog post at Keep Up With The Web - Sherryl Perry : In this week’s Friday Finds, we’re going to take a look at some of the ways that you can beef up your social media strategy…

Do You Have a Strategy for Triberr?

Usually, I feature articles, videos and slide shares that have recently been published in this series but I’m making an exception this week. I want to share Ileane Smith’s YouTube video Reach Millions of People on Twitter with Triberr, Although this video was uploaded in September of 2013, her content is still relevant and hopefully some readers here will benefit from watching it.

As an intro, when Ileane Smith (of BasicBlogTips.com) created this video, she had only been active on Triberr for two to three months. In that time, she built a tribe with a reach of over one million. So, what can we learn from Ileane about Triberr? You’ll have to watch for yourself, but (as I often do in these Friday Finds posts), I’ve bullet pointed some of Ileane’s best Triberr tips here:

  • Find tribes with diversity (to break up monotony)
  • Option of setting up Automatic Sharing
  • Prime membership with an Atomic Tribe

Ileane Smith's insight:

Sherryl Perry put together and excellent weekly roundup for the second week on July 2014. Yet it was very kind of her to include my Triberr video from late last year.

RODE released their smartLav, a lavalier microphone that records into your smart phone, back in 2013. This is an incredibly convenient microphone that makes …

Ileane Smith's insight:

This is the Rode SmartLav Plus in action. It is an upgraded version of the original Rode SmartLav which was very noisy.


You can get this on Amazon for about $80. Works with iPhone and Android! I got mine in last weekend and I love it.

Are there boundaries for “Best Practices?” – Interview with Cliff Ravenscraft 

Cliff Ravenscraft is known as the Podcast Answer man. I approached Cliff this week to come on the show after voicing my opinion about “chit chit” in a previous episode (where I answered a listener question). I’ve known Cliff for years, and I thought it was stupid to talk about his show  (not the person) without actually stating his name. As I said last week, I’m not judging Cliff. We do have a difference of opinions on personal stories in podcasts, so I asked him to come on and share his insights. I want to see if there is anything I can learn. So I ask him why he would share personal stories in a show that many might expect to be all about podcasting. The beauty of podcasting is you can do you show however you want.


Ileane Smith's insight:

Cliff Ravenscraft, often referred to as Uncle Cliff, is one of the most prolific podcasters I know. He has several shows and has dedicated most of his time and life to the craft.

Today we have introduced a new feature to our podcast media hosting. We have found that some of our podcast hosting customers bump against their monthly storage limit on the hosting plan they have paid for time to time most only needing a little extra storage to carry them into the next month and not force them to upgrade.


Ileane Smith's insight:

Blubrry is the number 2 podcast hosting service and it looks like they are working very hard at becoming number 1.
