I Have Multiple Social Pages

Every account on CoPromote can only be linked to one Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr account. To share content from different social pages on the same social network, you will need to create a new account on CoPromote for each page.

If you manage multiple pages already, this will also make it easy to share and manage the results of your boosted posts for each of your pages.

If you have more than one Facebook page and are interested to share your content for each of these pages, you can create a new account linked to each Facebook page:

1. Make sure you are logged into Facebook as your profile (not page). This way you can select which page you wish to connect to.

2. Go to CoPromote or the Login Page and click the Sign in with Facebook button.

You will be able to select which Facebook page you wish to connect to:

multiple

3. Click “Select” next to page you want to connect with and your new account will be created.

How Do I Boost And Get My Content Shared?

CoPromote boosts your existing social posts, so make sure you have created the message you want re-shared as a Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr post.

Content you created and shared on platforms such as SoundCloud, YouTube, and WordPress cannot be shared directly on CoPromote. Create a custom message on Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr you want other people to share. See What Post Content Works Best?

1. Create your message on your connected Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr page if it is not already posted. We pull in your latest posts to get boosted so it should be recently posted.

Create your message on the network you want it to get shared to:

Facebook page posts will only get shared to other Facebook pages.
Twitter tweets will only get shared to other Twitter pages.
Tumblr blog posts will only get shared to other Tumblr blogs.

2. Select your 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”.

See the full list of available target categories

4. Share another member’s post under “Share” to launch your post and have other members start sharing your posts. Make sure to update your profile interests to find relevant and interesting content to share to your own followers. You will need to share at least one other member’s post to launch yours for boosting.

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.

Here are a few examples:

How Do I Share Other Member Posts?

Boosting a new post? Share a post by another member to launch your post for boosting.

What is the incentive to share?

Sharing posts by other members will 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 Reach which increases your fan reach for a current or future post you boost.

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

Note: posts you share to your page feed should not be deleted after it is posted to your page. This will result in your own boosted posts failing to get shared or a reduction in account credits.

Tip: Only share content you’re interested and comfortable sharing to your pages. Don’t over-share as this may shadow your own content from your current fans and followers.

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 “Details” button for any single promotion.

In the “Details” pop up window,  you will see:

Screen Shot 2015-04-07 at 5.10.19 PM

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.
Engagements The total number of clicks, likes, retweets, favorites, and shares your post has earned

When your post gets shared by other members, CoPromote reposts your post on their social networks in real time.  Members can share a maximum of 10 requests per day.

What Is Reach?

Reach 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 Reach. Your currency balance is automatically adjusted proportionate to the number of new fans that will be reached for each person that shares your post.

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

The more Reach 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 Reach 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 Reach. The amount of Reach 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.
