Top 5 Millennial Influencers You Should Be Following

Influencers are increasingly the go-to source for social and content marketing. With so many tastemakers breaking into the field, it can be difficult to know where to start or who to follow. Here are CoPromote’s five favorite millennial influencers combining skills, knowledge, and personal charisma to create a compelling online presence that inspires us to keep learning every day!


1. Chelsea Krost


If there is one person that is an expert in all things Millennial, it is Chelsea. From making appearances on Good Morning America to hosting weekly twitter chats titled #MillennialTalk, Chelsea’s knowledge of social media and influencer marketing makes her an indispensable resource for companies like MasterCard and Intel.

2. Sara Forte 


Sara’s Twitter and Instagram make us wish eating was a 24/7 job. Besides her amazing cooking creations, Sara loves connecting with other creators and shows us the power of collaboration! In fact, her blog, Sprouted Kitchen, is a project with her husband Hugh!

3. Patrick Jervis-Stone


Patrick is a master of the interwebs: from graphic design to photography to branding, he does it all. His blog, Get Social With Patrick, is filled with informative articles on marketing to today’s generation.

4. Andy Fidel


Using the medium of photography and film, Andy is an expert storyteller. Focusing on lifestyle, culture and performing arts, Andy uses her skills to create content that is visually appealing and catered to millennials.

5. Brooke Saward


One look at Brooke’s website will make you green with envy. Her picturesque travel blog posts inspire and make us yearn for places far and away. She is the prime example of a millenial living the off-the-beaten path life–and using social media to document it all for the rest of us.

3 Twitter Follower Management Tools

When Twitter first burst onto the social media scene, your profile was judged on the number of followers you had. This demand for quantity produced many services that sold twitter followers, and essentially bumped the number on your profile using a bit of computer code.

Today, marketers are more focused on the number of reach and engagements your account has. “Bot” followers or “eggs” do not give you an increase in impressions, favorite your tweets, or read them. Your rating on Twitter Audit or Status People is a strong indicator to potential partners on the quality of your twitter account.

Luckily, there are several tools out there to help you clean up your account and make sure it is followed by real people. Not only do you increase your overall reach by blocking and managing your followers, you also make the social web a better place to share.

1. Tweepi
A free-mium service that helps organize your twitter account, and make sure it is up to date. You can unfollow people who are not active, people who do not follow you, and also make people unfollow you through their “Force to Unfollow You” feature. It is visually pleasing, and has a very simple and easy to use UI.

2. ManageFlitter
Similar to Tweepi, ManageFlitter analyzes your twitter account for all the fakes, in-actives, and bad accounts. It allows you to unfollow people you follow who have fake profiles, as well as block those accounts that are following you with bad profiles. They divide their dashboard into several helpful categories, including profiles with no picture, non-english profiles, inactive users and several more.

3. StatusPeople
StatusPeople is a great tool to help you see how many fake followers your twitter account has, as well as how many followers are inactive. It also has an automatic block feature which allows you to block these spam accounts in one go. You can connect multiple twitter accounts, and get follower analytics.

This. vs Twitter: Is Less More?

Today, we came across two bits of social network news that seem to be at odds with each other.

This., the social network that allows you to share one link per day, published a fun and informative article on why less is more:

When the publishers you trust make their pick, they’re telling you: “This is what’s worth your time today.”

Check the graphic below and click through for their thoughts on “why social media is broken.”


Twitter, known for the brevity of its platform, on the other hand, is rumored to be expanding its 140-character limit to 10,000 characters, effectively positing that “more is more.” Reactions, predictably, have been swift and varied. Some users welcomed the expansion, stating that Twitter’s distinction is its distribution power, not its brevity, and welcome the opportunities to expound on their ideas. Others dread the onslaught of wordy posts and predict ruin for the network, despite its formidable presence in the cultural zeitgeist. Check your local newscast for Twitter references and you will soon see how intrinsic it’s become to how we tell stories and break news.


So, which is it?

At CoPromote we offer one boost at a time to free members. One of the reasons we do so, is because most of our members are using the free option and therefore contributing the most content to platform. The one free boost helps make better content available by asking people to think about what they want to boost – and hopefully putting their best content forward. In this case, less is more.

CoPromote subscribers can boost multiple posts as one of their perks. Subscribers tend to be more media savvy and therefore their content tends be of higher quality. In this scenario, more is more. But even in this case, we encourage subscribers to share their best content and not overwhelm the platform with too many boosts to avoid falling into a “too much of a good thing” pit and being considered spam.

“The Internet” as a whole may never agree on whether less is more or more is more but it shouldn’t have to. There is enough content and there are enough platforms available for everyone to use each as best suits their needs. Rather than choose one idea over the other, at CoPromote we say: apply whichever best fits the task at hand. Tailoring your content to your audience and platform will always get you better results than not knowing the difference or disregarding it.


5 Good App Blogs & Year-End Statistics

In order to stay competitive, apps are constantly innovating. At times, the updates can be frustrating to members – just think back to every time Facebook updated something and hoopla that followed. It is understandable that consumers would be upset and, while there is little they can do about preventing changes in their favorite apps, there is a great way to stay on top of changes as they happen – company blogs.

Originally embraced as vehicles for self-expression, blogs were soon adopted by brands and apps as a way to tell their story and communicate with their members directly. In addition to all the tech blogs and news outlets dedicated to apps, we recommend getting your information straight from the source as well.

To help you stay on top of the inevitable changes at some of your favorite apps, here’s a short list of blogs we like and recent statistics on each one to give you a sense of why staying current is important. Most apps also offer a developersblogs for more technical information and updates.
