CoPromote Reaches Over 1 Billion People in September

rev6a-1b-reach

CoPromote launched in 2014 with a mission to serve the dynamic emerging market of independent content creators on the social web.

Whereas major brands and creators have the resources to scale their reach with traditional advertising, many independent content creators have to rely on word of mouth or social alternatives which can take time to scale, and detract from the creative process.

Enter CoPromote. Founded by creators to serve creators, CoPromote not only understands the needs of creative people, we understand the technology required to build a platform that enables creators to reach and support each other organically, affordably and easily.

As September has shown, there is clearly need for CoPromote on the social web, which means we should all look forward to reaching the next billion together soon!

 

What Happened to Facebook on CoPromote?

What’s Happening?

Our old Facebook integration was not providing the best experience for our creators. We think you deserve the best. We will be removing Facebook until our new integration with Facebook is complete.

Why?

We are working on a better way to optimize Facebook for creators , especially Youtubers and other video creators.

What do we do in the meantime?

You can still direct traffic to your Facebook page via Twitter, Tumblr and Youtube. We are happy to help. Get in touch via email, phone, social media or look for our live chat support during business hours, Eastern Standard Time. 

 Big picture.

We know many of our you like cross-posting on Facebook, and we’re sorry about the inconvenience. CoPromote was built to help creators reach new audiences easily.  A lot of our community’s best content is being generated in video and animated formats. In that spirit, we are working with Facebook on a new, better integration for our creator community. We are also working on adding exciting networks like Vine, Instagram, and more.

Stay tuned for details. As always, feel free to reach out with any questions or feedback.

CoPromote is now moderating content. Here’s how you can help share more of what you love.

Why is this necessary?

We have over 500,000 members and share thousands of posts per day. Some posts may not be right for you or your followers. These tools provide a way to manage the types of posts you are asked to share.

How Will This Improve Sharing?

CoPromote’s algorithm, Affinity Rank™, matches members based on interests in their profiles and the categories they target when they boost a post. Members who share interests are more likely to share each other’s posts; those who don’t, aren’t.

How does it work?

1. Look in your Share queue.
2. Next to each request you can click an X and select the reason.
3. Flagged posts will be held for review by our support team.
4. Members will receive email notifications depending on whether the content is approved or rejected.

Come and Get It: Real-time Posting & 10 Shares Per Day Upgrade!

Great news:

Real-time posting is live – plus, you can now share up to 10 posts per day!

What does this mean?
If you’re boosting, you will see your posts on other members’ Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr pages as soon as they agree to share it. If you’re sharing, you will be able to share up to 10 posts per day, instantly.

Why the change?
We used to schedule 3 posts per day per member. This limited options for members who share real-time content, as well as for members who want to share more than 3 times per day.

How Will This Improve CoPromote?
Fresher content, more of it, and immediate posting mean that you can scale your social reach even faster.

Product Updates: Reach, Interests, and Curating Tools

Here’s the scoop on some recent updates to CoPromote.

Karma Cash is now Reach
Reach is what content creators want, Reach is what CoPromote is built to provide, and exchanging Reach is how you scale social sharing – so, let’s call it what it is.
“How many people can I reach with my post?” Look in the box.

Interests are More Visible
In each post, you can see the audience targeted by each creator; in the right sidebar, you can see the interests you have selected. CoPromote’s algorithm, Affinity Rank™, uses this information to match members most likely to share each other’s posts.

Curating is Easier
Share or Reject: Click “Share” to add a post to your social network and to earn Reach for your own posts. Click “Show Me Fewer” to reject a post and remove it from your queue. Flagged posts will be reviewed and creators contacted if necessary. The more feedback you give our system, the better it learns what you like.

Why is This Necessary?
CoPromote is home to over 500,000 creators sharing thousands of posts per day. You need an easy way to tell us what you want to share and what you don’t.

To update your interests, check your settings. Still have questions? Get in touch!
