Get More Social Bang For Your Tweets Than Katy Perry Or Oprah

A recent study by Online Journalism Blog looked at the click through rates for celebrities and drew a few interesting conclusions that CoPromote members may find useful:

  1. Celebrities with more balanced follower-to-following ratios (they followed people back), resulted in better engagement rates (more click throughs, retweets)
  2. Accounts that reply and retweet followers also had better engagement rates
  3. Politicians, due to the viral nature of their cause-centered work, tended to have better engagements than celebrities.

While you may not be a celebrity or a politician, these are three good points to keep in mind when managing your social media:

  1. Follow back
  2. Reply/retweet
  3. Share content with broad appeal

On CoPromote, our average RT rate is 15%, meaning that for every 100 views a request gets, members can expect 15 shares. This is  higher than the average engagement rate partly because members join CoPromote to do one thing: reach new people by sharing each other’s posts.
