Learn How to Become a YouTube Star From Kandee Johnson

Camille Santochi (@omitofo) of Fusion sat down with makeup artist, beauty blogger, and YouTube star Kandee Johnson, on what it’s like to share content to over 2 million followers on her YouTube channel.

For content creators interested in starting their own YouTube channel or are already embracing it, Kandee offers some good advice:

“Make sure that you’re starting for the right reason. Make sure that you’re starting YouTube because you want to help people — because you want to entertain people. Not because you want to get free products or because you want to be “YouTube famous” Always talk like you’re talking to your best friend or sister.”

Takeaway: It’s awesome to get feedback for your content and videos. But remember to be yourself; Be authentic, likable, and relatable to who you’re looking to reach out to.

Share your YouTube video or channel on CoPromote to get mentioned by new audiences, reach more followers, and grow your network. One share by a CoPromote member for your video means more possibilities for additional shares and engagements by hundreds to thousands of new people!

It’s unlikely Oprah or any celebrity will re-share your posts, but  that’s OK, there are still millions of people on the social web – and over 300,000 of them are using CoPromote to reach new people with every post.

On CoPromote, once our members share your content once, there’s a 97% chance they’ll share it again. Also, on average, for every 100 views your posts get on CoPromote, you can expect approximately 15 shares. Why? Because exchanging posts is all CoPromote does. Our community is dedicated to the idea and practice of sharing each other’s content. When people join, they are already intent on sharing content, they’re just looking for content they like. Why not add your content to our mix? Once our community gets to know you and your content, they will trust you and be more likely to share your posts.

Our advice, go through this handy list, see what you can apply to your own strategy, and when you’re ready  to reach beyond your own social circle – you know where to find us.

How to Make Facebook’s Algorithm Work for Your Brand: Post Links!

An optimistic study points to a bright spot in Facebook’s ever-shifting newsfeed algorithm.

According to an article by ShopIgniter, one way to make your posts stand out is to include links. Media-rich posts still seem to do well, but for those cases when you don’t have media to attach, it’s encouraging to know that adding a link can boost the presence of your posts.

Fortunately for CoPromote members, sharing links is what we’re all about! Any traction our members may lose in the ongoing adjustments, they can make up for it by being connected to a network with thousands of similar people eager to share their posts for them. As reaching your own social circle becomes more difficult, being able to reach beyond your circle becomes increasingly valuable.

Below is an excerpt from the article in Business Insider. Click through for more details.

ShopIgniter looked at posts made by 15 major brands in the two weeks before and after this later tweak, and found that while reach for text status updates dropped a staggering 65%, reach for photos and videos posted stayed about the same, and reach for link posts actually jumped 30%.”
