How Do I Get Started?

1. Create a new account on CoPromote by connecting your Facebook page or Twitter account (bookmark us!)

2. Select a post to boost from your connected page. Click the “Boost new post”button or “Boost” from the top menu.

3. Select your target category so we can match you with members who have similar interests to share your post and get your post shared to the right audiences. Select up to 1-2 subcategories that best matches the content you’re interested to promote. Once you’ve selected your categories, just click “Boost”.

4. To get your post boosted, you will need to share at least one other member’s post to launch yours. Go to Share from the top menu and see what other members are sharing. Update your interests from the Settings to see more content to share

5. Go to Track to see how your post is doing and share more content by other members to raise your post score. Members typically earn new shares within a few days, so check back often. Posts get boosted for 14 days by default and you can end this anytime to boost a different post.

What Post Content Works Best?

Understanding how you can make your post stand out and get other people’s attention to share it is essential to your social media marketing success. Create or select an existing post from your Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr page that will drive attention to your content.

100 characters is the sweet spot for grabbing the attention of new people to engage with your post and re-share it. Include a short description of the content you want to get boosted and a link to the content or media.

CoPromote boosts your existing social posts, so if you don’t have an engaging message to go along with the content you want to get shared, make sure to create your post first!

See our tips below for sharing a new social post:

Have a positive tone: Be approachable and friendly when describing your content so that new audiences will advocate your content more readily and be more receptive to checking it out.

Posts that contain links to media or a site with an image or gallery often perform better to increase additional shares and engagements to your content when it is reposted.

Share an image post or link to a blog post with images. Images that pop out and attract attention can cut through the walls of text on a newsfeed when your post is shared. Pair images with a solid call to action to get some great results.

Create a discussion in your post that will allow visitors to comment on a media post to drive engagement and virality to your content.

Consider adding a hashtag or two that relates to your content if promoting from a Twitter account. Include your Twitter handle so others know where the content came from and can follow you back.

If you are promoting something time-sensitive, such as an event, contest, or offer, include the deadline in your post and know your timeframe before boosting it on CoPromote to get the most shares before it ends.

How Do I Share Other Member Posts?

share

 

 

Click “Share” from the top menu to see fresh new content to share to your followers.

Check out the link that is included for posts that seem interesting to you to share. Confirm you want to share a post by clicking the “Share” button. Don’t like something? Just hit the thumbs down icon for that post.

reach

The Reach number is your current number of followers who will see the post you have chosen to share.

What is the incentive to share?

Sharing posts by other members will also boost the visibility rank of your own boosted posts appearing in other member requests to be shared. This means more views for your latest boosted post.

Members who have shared your post once are 97% more likely to support you again. Sharing other member content increases your chances of getting yours posts shared again by these influencers.

Every time you share another member’s post you earn Karma Cash toward your own promotions and a new connection is added to your CoPromote Network.

Sharing posts by other CoPromoters supports good content curation from our community and helps spread the word for that member and you.

How Do I Track My Progress?

track

 

 

Click “Track” in the top menu to see your current and past activity for posts you have boosted. Click the “Promotion Details” button for any single promotion.

Under Promotion Status, you will see:

% Posted How many shares which have been scheduled have reposted so far.
Days Left Number of days left this post will get boosted.
Rating This is calculated based on your number of views, shares, and social engagements for your post with 5 being the best.

 

Under Reach Metrics, you will see:

Shares The number of members who have shared your post.
Reach The total number of new people who will see your post based on your shares.
Amplification Your normal reach compared to your CoPromote reach.

 

Amplification Score indicates how many new people you reached through new shares on Copromote compared to your normal reach if you only shared to your own followers.

Engagements are the total number of Clicks, Likes, ReTweets, Favorites, and Shares your post has earned.

Under Recommendations & Engagements, you will see who has shared your post, their CoPromote profile, and when they will share your post.

When your post gets shared by other members, CoPromote schedules to repost your post on their social networks. Currently, this will automatically post in 1 of 3 time slots for any single day: 11 AM, 3PM, and 7PM EST. Members can share a maximum of 3 requests per day so yours may get reposted at a later day.

What Is Karma Cash?

Karma Cash is CoPromote’s virtual currency and value proposition for earning new social shares and reaching new audiences for posts you boost on our platform.

When other members share your post, you pay for that social share with Karma Cash. Karma Cash is automatically deducted from your account proportionate to the number of new fans that will be reached for each person that shares your post.

1 Karma Cash = 1 New Fan Reach
10,000 Karma Cash = 10,000 New Fan Reach

The more Karma Cash you have, the greater the opportunity of getting new shares by other members, increased fan reach and engagements, and to run more successive promotions on CoPromote. CoPromote incentivizes all members to share new content to build their influencer network and reach more audiences without spending any real money.

Earn Karma Cash for your boosted posts by sharing new posts, inviting your friends, or upgrading to one of our membership plans such as the Pro plan.

Every time you share another member’s post, you earn Karma Cash. The amount of Karma Cash earned is based on the number of followers you have for Twitter and Tumblr and number of new engagements – Likes, Comments, Clicks, and Shares – your shared post receives for Facebook.

How Do I End A Promotion?

Promotions run for a duration of 14 days by default. During this time, your boosted post will be available for other members to share from their Requests feed.

To end a promotion early, click “Track” in the top menu and click “Promotion Details”. In the Promotion Details window, scroll down and click the “Stop This Promotion” button.

This will end your promotion from getting new shares and set the status of your promotion to Withdrawn. Members who have already agreed to share your content will still post as scheduled.
