CoPromote has always been an open platform where creators can connect, collaborate, and reach each other’s audiences. We are also an opt-in community, where members choose the content they wish to tell their followers about.
To help you get the most out of CoPromote, we’ve outlined The Do’s and The Don’ts of Boosting below.
- Have a clear objective and target metrics to measure your success.
- Are you boosting this post to connect with similar creators? If your goal is to scale your network, your target metric on CoPromote is Shares.
- Are you boosting this post to reach new audiences? If your goal is maximum exposure for your content, your target metric on CoPromote is Reach.
- Are you boosting this post to build buzz around your work? If your goal is increasing awareness, your metric on CoPromote is Engagements.
- Set up your posts correctly before you boost them.
- Have complete profiles on social networks so people can easily see who you are and what they’re supporting.
- Make sure your name and avatar are easy to understand
- Mention others involved in creating your content by name to get their attention
- Have a link directing traffic to your site where people can find out more about you and your content.
- Include a hashtag or keyword that will help make your content easier to find once it’s posted.
- Write clearly, avoid ALL CAPS and go easy on the hype.
- Pick the best category, not every category.
- The more similar creators are to you, the more likely they are to share your boost.
- The better the content, the higher your chances are of engaging and connecting with new creators and followers.
- Posts that are targeted irrelevantly will be rejected by other members and the moderation process.
- By sharing your posts, members are allowing you access to their followers. Honor their generosity by only targeting them with relevant content.
- If you’re a new and free member, make sure to share someone else’s post to activate your boost.
- By sharing you will earn Reach credits that you can use to boost your own posts.
- Sharing will connect you to similar members willing to support you.
- Members who support you once are over 90% more likely to share your post again.
- Sharing tells the algorithm what you want to see more, or less. The more you share the good stuff, the more it will become available for more members to share.
- Boost any posts that are not clearly written, compelling, informative, inspiring or entertaining.
- Posts that confuse members are more likely to be rejected or overlooked without being shared.
- Posts that are overly promotional or full of hype are also likely to be overlooked, flagged or reported.
- Over-select categories.
- Targeting audiences that are not relevant to your content will result in your account being flagged or blocked and your posts being rejected.
- Selecting irrelevant categories repeatedly can result in your account being closed.
- Share other members’ posts if they’re not a good fit for your followers.
- Every time you share, you tell our system to show you and others more of this content. If it’s bad or irrelevant content, it creates a negative experience for the community by making bad content more available to everyone else.
- Share posts that can be seen as
- Spam or Click-bait
- Overly promotional
- Selling Followers
- Generated by bots
- Affiliate Marketing
- SEO keyword-heavy
- Illegal activities
- Adult Content
