Mobile Metrics: Twitter Alone vs Twitter + CoPromote

We can tell you how cross-promotion is the best way to reach new followers. We can talk about “the power of many” until the internet actually breaks. Or, we can let the data speak for itself.

Today, Twitter announced an update that lets you track engagements on their iOS app. The data’s message couldn’t be clearer: Dedicated sharing scales reach!

Now, when you boost a Tweet through CoPromote, you can easily compare the improvement between Tweeting on your own versus boosting through CoPromote’s community of content creators dedicated to sharing.

Don’t take our word for it. Boost a tweet and see for yourself.

Thanks, Twitter!

Share Tumblr Posts Using CoPromote? Here’s How To Track & Compare Results

Good news, CoPromote members: all Tumblr posts shared through CoPromote are now treated as normal reblogs.

Why is this good news?
Sharing Tumblr posts natively means that all of the metrics will be attributed to and visible on your original Tumblr post. Previously, all posts shared through CoPromote were treated as unique, and the metrics were collected on your CoPromote dashboard. Verifying results meant checking each post individually.

Doesn’t CoPromote already provide these metrics?
Yes, CoPromote’s own metrics panel shows you exactly who is sharing your posts so you can engage them and build your network. This product update makes it easier to compare the results.

How can I see the results?
Next time you share a Tumblr post through CoPromote, check the reblog notes for CoPromote members who have supported your content.That’s how sharing scales reach.

If you have Tumblr connected, login to boost a post now. If you don’t have Tumblr connected, adding it to your CoPromote profile will connect you with similar creators and expand the reach of your own posts. [Plus, you add fresh content to the community, and that’s a win/win for everyone!]

Kevin Spacey Shouts-out CoPromote at Content Marketing World 2014

Oscar winner and entrepreneur Kevin Spacey recently gave CoPromote a shout-out in his closing keynote at Content Marketing World 2014.

In his speech he focuses on the three pillars of content and strategy: conflict, authenticity, and the audience. Highlighting distribution, he focused on channels like Youtube and applications like CoPromote that empower content creators to reach new audiences directly.

“Platforms like CoPromote are making it easier for creators to build audiences through social media…”

Check out the clip below, and keep his advice in mind.

 

How To Target Your Boosted Posts In 3 Steps Using CoPromote’s Updated Categories

When CoPromote launched as music app Headliner.fm, targeting was easy: everyone was a musician, so targeting was simply a matter of choosing a genre that fit.

When CoPromote grew to include all content creators – bloggers, app developers, small businesses – it became necessary to update our categories to help a more diverse community better target its boosted posts.

Why is proper targeting important to CoPromote’s community?

CoPromote uses its own algorithm Affinity Rank™ to match people based on interests, so the more you focus your profile and your target audience, the better your results will be. Choosing random, irrelevant, or too many categories will feed our algorithm incorrect information, disrupt the matching process for everyone, and lead to rejections, bad results, complaints, your profile being blocked, or your account being closed.

Below is a list and preview of the updated categories, subcategories, and how to use them when you boost a post. To drill down to a subcategory, just click on the main group to flip the panel.

Main Categories
