Content Promotion

Tasty Quuu Annoucement - Big Bundles Deal

Update: Contest has ended.

The big deal is coming from Quuu. Quuu’s announcement is that it is partnering with a new website to bring you a once in a lifetime deal.. truly something they’ve never offered before and may not offer again !

Note: Just head straight over to the Lifetime Deal ! Ends on November 30th or you can read the rest of the post.

With that said, while I know it’s been a while since I’ve written a post, today is going to focus on “insider” knowledge.

What if you had the insider scoop on Google before it became what it was ?

What if you’d had the opportunity to be a part of Facebook on the basement level ?

What if you had the insider scoop on Pinterest before it became to be what it was ?

What if you had the insider scoop on Wordpress before it became the giant that it is ?

What about buffer ?

What about search engine journal ?

What about Fiverr ?

What about Moz ?  

Even from an affiliate standpoint, what about Amazon ?

Let me get to the point, the reason for this post is because of an email that I received and from who it came from:  


After looking at this image, there were two thoughts that immediately crossed my mind.

First… if you’ve ever heard of Quuu, you would know that this is a great way to get your content exposure after you go through their platform and get your post approved.

Sounds simple but let me go into an explanation to let you know how it works.

I know I typically go into a pretty comprehensive explanation of how things work in my reviews, (e.g. Quuu review) but for this post I’ll just let you know that it’s fairly simple even for those that experience a little bit of an anxiety attack when they have to navigate something new.

Trust me.. just breathe easy.. it’s pretty straightforward when it comes to Quuu.

Just navigate to Quuu

Once you’ve logged in, you’ll click on “promote a post”.

Add your url that you’d like to promote.

Quuu will pull in some information from the link.

Once you’ve done that, edit your posts in the way that you want them to be seen on Twitter.

Just an extra step that you can follow if you like (totally optional).. add the @ sign and your twitter username somewhere (example. @candidwriter) in your Twitter post so you can track mentions of it either through Twitter itself or something like Tweetdeck which is something that I do in the editing process of Quuu.

Quuu uses what they refer to as: short share details [associated with Twitter] and long share details [associated with Linkedin, Facebook and Google Plus (not sure why they are still promoting there since as of October, Google is said to be closing down the platform over the next 10 months)].

After you’re done editing your link, you’ll need to choose from one of several categories where it’s best suited towards (I’m guessing this is for better targeting to help you get the most exposure for your content that you want promoted which makes sense).

You’ll now have to pay for it (e.g. the content you want approved) and once approved, voila.. you’ll get an email that your link is live and approved and that’s basically the skinny on Quuu for those of you that aren’t aware or familiar with the platform.

The reason why the “who” of this email is a big deal is because it’s one of my best content distribution channels that I use when I promote a post. It’s a really great bang for the buck content distribution platform when you consider the money and what you get in terms of exposure.

Let me just share some of my posts with you so you can see what I am talking about.  



Note: Shares of the content (in blue) and clicks to the actual page of the content (in green).

Consider the impressions that convert to actual clicks [caveat: there’s no guarantee that you’ll see as many clicks].. all of that depends on your content that you’re submitting to promote.

So all in all, Quuu is a big deal if you’re looking for content promotion and it’s safe to say that if you’re reading this that you’re looking for a very effective content marketing channel and this is it.

So to find out that they are partnering with the Lifetime Deals website in addition to offering other goodies, that certainly peaked my interest, not to mention that there are 10 prizes up for grabs.

Remember earlier when I said that there were two thoughts that crossed my mind ?

Well I already shared the first and the second thought that hit me was that upon reading this message:

I learned that Lifetimedeals was in their launching phase. From the deals that are currently posted on their website, it seems like the audience that they are targeting are for those in the content marketing arena, blog and website owners etc. which is great news for people like us.

And as we’ve seen with other websites over time, the time is “now” to get in and stay aware of a site like this that can help in our content marketing efforts and other pertinent or relevant things associated with blogs and websites beyond the content too.

Other deals currently seen on the website as of the completion of this post includes:

The competitors app allowing you to monitor your competitors marketing strategy from one app.

Funnelbake which is automated cold email outreach.

Captain Growth which is AI for your ad marketing efforts.

Chatmod for growing your blockchain community.

Rewardful for setting up affiliate and referral programs with Stripe.

From my perspective, so many of us know the well known names and methods for how to get our content out there, to grow our blogs and to get more exposure.

While the big names are out there in the blogosphere, we’re all after new channels and untapped sources to find more opportunities for growth and expand our reach to interact with new visitors and customers hence why I’m sharing this with you.

I hope you’ll get out there and share this opportunity with others to get the word out about this truly phenomenal opportunity from Quuu and the other opportunities both current and in the future coming from the launch of the Lifetimedeals website too.

Uncovering Curlie.org - Best New Alltop & DMOZ Blog Directory Alternative

Curlie Org Alltop DMOZ Best Of The Web Alternative Website Directory

Source

Have you ever heard of human edited directories ? Curlie.org maybe ? What about Dmoz ?

Chances are good that if you’ve ever looked into how to get your blog or website out there for the world to see, you’ve probably stumbled across a website directory like Alltop, Best of the Web or even the lesser known but well trafficked Ezilon or other human edited directory.. and particularly several years ago there was the top dog.. Dmoz.  

Dmoz was held as “the place to be” if you wanted to get a powerful link online. It was a highly sought after directory link.

Even today (e.g. 2017) though the official DMOZ website is dead (closed by AOL, a couple mirrors still exist for it though) .. searches for Dmoz still yield nearly 4500 searches a month !

Nowadays, there is speculation as to the power and necessity of these kinds of links, but what I can tell you is that I wouldn’t turn my head away from links like this.

Now I don’t want you thinking this post is simply an overview about going after directory links, but moreso to understand that this post is about “one directory link”. The successor of Dmoz..

Did you even know that there was a successor to it in the first place ?

Probably not, but I can tell you that the guys from Dmoz have been hard at work reworking the coveted directory and now have rebuilt it and it’s called…

Curlie.

A cute little name, but if it’s anything like what Dmoz used to be.. this is going to be a blog and website directory to be reckoned with I assure you.

It’s still in development but the doors are going to open in the near future and when they do.. oh man.. I can only imagine that the best is yet to come.

A Peek Inside Curlie.org

So let’s have a look at this new web directory.

Curlie Org Alltop DMOZ Best Of The Web Alternative Website Directory Homepage

Source

As you can see in the image there are a couple of links. Both links are specifically for the editors.

Interestingly enough there is a forum designated primarily for editors and then the login link is another link that appears to be associated with the editor forum as well.

At this time, I can’t differentiate between the two links because I do not have access, but if a Curlie moderator comes across this post, maybe they’ll be able to provide some insight for us all that are wondering just what kind of additional features and access the editors have in this section too.

For all I know at this point, it’s still under development but that’s pure speculation on my part.

Aside from that, the reminder of the front page is pretty standard as far as what you’d expect to see upon visiting a directory page.

Current category listings include:

Note: additional sub categories do exist but have been listed here in this post.

  • Arts (subs: movies, television, music)
  • Business (subs: jobs, real estate, investing)
  • Computers (subs: internet, software, hardware)
  • Games (subs: video games, rpg’s, gambling)
  • Health (subs: fitness, medicine, alternative)
  • Home (subs: family, consumers, cooking)
  • News (subs: media, newspapers, weather)
  • Recreation (subs: travel, food, outdoors, humor)
  • Reference (subs: maps, education, libraries)
  • Regional (subs: US, Canada, UK, Europe)
  • Science (subs: biology, psychology, physics)
  • Shopping (subs: clothing, food, gifts)
  • Society (subs: people, religion, issues)
  • Sports (subs: baseball, soccer, basketball)
  • Kids & Teens Directory (subs: arts, school, teen life)
  • Curlie around the World (in this section there are different languages that are listed)

Below the categories, Curlie also lists the number of current editors, categories, sites and languages.

Curlie Forums

Believe it or not there is a way to keep up with what’s going on with Curlie. The easiest way to do that is via the forum.

Now you may be thinking… wait a minute.. didn’t you mention forums earlier and wasn’t that just for the editors ?

You’d be right and I did, but there is indeed a forum for everyone else and it’s called their Resource Zone.

You can access to the resource zone here: http://www.resource-zone.com and once you’re there you’ll be greeted with this page.

Curlie Org Alltop DMOZ Best Of The Web Alternative Website Directory Resource Zone

Source

Once you’ve registered with Curlie’s resource zone, you’ll be able to participate in discussions and post to the forum.

Some of the general discussion sections include:

  • Announcements
  • Inside the Directory
  • General DMOZ Issues
  • Suggesting a site (important section that gives you insight into how to suggest a site for evaluation)
  • Becoming an editor
  • Kids and Teens
  • Quality Control Feedback
  • And more…

At the time of this post, the suggest a site section was newly added and it’s there just to be there for now because they haven’t really provided guidelines in this section for suggesting a site. So in all reality you can’t suggest a site yet, but guidelines to do will be released in the future, however it’s still a thread to watch.

The same would apply to the “becoming an editor” thread.

Interestingly enough if you were an editor for DMOZ you may be able to apply for reinstatement as an editor for Curlie.org

Currently they are not accepting new applications but they are processing the applications that were received when the window was open to apply and are processing the reinstatement applications that they received too.

The Curlie Web Directory Process & Future

I’ve been keeping an eye on Curlie for months and they have been making steady progress to opening the doors.

As mentioned briefly before.. when you think about some of the most popular or high trafficked website directories... names like the following may come to mind:

Directories are still a big deal even though there are plenty of people that argue for them and large followings that say don’t worry about them too.

What I can tell you is that directories, like anything else online can be placed in two distinct categories… Quality vs Garbage

Quality links are all that matter and that’s why Curlie is so important. It can’t be stressed enough that this is the successor DMOZ.. arguably the most successful human edited directory in the existence of the internet.

Remember, as I mentioned before that the directory doesn’t even exist anymore and it still receives nearly 4500 unique searches per month.

With that said, it makes it hard not to make a case that leans towards directories being a thing of the past and not relevant to today’s world of SEO and for a blog or websites traffic and online presence.

A hard cold reality is that people still believe in submitting a link to a quality directory and Curlie is going to be the new big deal in directories “very soon”.

We may genuinely miss DMOZ, but I have a feeling we’re going to fall in love with Curlie.

Catapulting Blog Promotion With ONE Impressive Strategy

Promote Your Blog And Business With Quuu

Source

Traffic to a website is like oil to a car and blood to a person. Blogs can’t survive without it so let’s talk about how to promote your business, your blog and your content for added reach and traffic online.

As a blogger, I’m always looking for new traffic strategies, methods and promotional avenues.

A while back I wrote a post on more than 100 ways to promote your blog which can be found here: Powerful Blog Promotion and you’ll find the strategy that I’m going to talk about today listed among those promotional roads I take as one of the newest additions to that post.

It is so important that I wanted to give it a post of its own because of the raw power it yields underneath the hood.

If you’ve got content, this is one phenomenal place to promote. In so many instances with respect to content promotion Quuu.co is the answer and solution to the how to and where to promote for so many items including the following which is not all encompassing but moreso a sample of what can be promoted:

  • Youtube videos
  • Youtube channels
  • Podcasts
  • Brands
  • Individuals
  • Website promotion
  • Facebook pages
  • Books and e-books
  • Businesses
  • and products

No matter what you want to promote, your content should be more informational than advertorial. You’ll find this to be true regardless of the platform that you use to promote your content.

The same could be said for similar platforms such as Viralcontentbee and Triberr for example. Regardless of what you promote, make sure to follow the rule of being informational for others and not solely focused on generating revenue for yourself.

Revenue will always come as a byproduct of putting the goal of helping others through the content you share above personal interest which ultimately leads to trust and dividends both tangible and intangible.

With that said, let’s talk about Quuu Promote.

The first thing that you’re going to do is login: Navigate to (https://promote.quuu.co/auth/login) and insert your username and password.

Promote Your Blog With Quuu Promote Login

Source

Once you’ve done that you’ll get access to the Quuu Promote dashboard. Once you’re there you’ll see the following items as depicted in the image.

Promote Your Blog With Quuu Promote Dashboard

Source

  • Promote a post
  • Active posts
  • In review
  • Expired
  • Drafts

There are additional icons that we’ll get into later.

The “promote a post” button is self-explanatory. Once you’ve clicked that button you will be prompted with several boxes to input information that will put your content into the queue. Once your post is accepted it will be made public for others to promote for you enabling you to receive additional exposure.

In the “active posts” section, this is where you will see any posts that you have submitted that have been accepted by Quuu moderation. Quuu moderation means that every post that is submitted is manually reviewed by a real person and this process typically takes less than 48 hours. You will receive an email once your content has been accepted and it will show up in the active posts section.

The “in review” section is where any post that you’ve submitted for review will show up. As I mentioned in the last paragraph, typically you’ll see posts here for a day or two “could take longer so don’t hold me to a firm promise on this” before you get a response back from the Quuu moderation.

On the subject of content rejections, I’ve personally never had a post rejected so I don’t know if a post will stay in the review section longer than 2 days if there’s any problem with what you’ve submitted.

Nevertheless, the strongest advice that I would give and reiterate is that regardless of the content that you’re promoting (youtube channels, youtube videos, podcasts, businesses, facebook pages, blog posts etc), ensure that you’re embedding it within informational text that helps the reader and isn’t overly self-serving.

Additionally, I also serve up content that I want to promote that I believe others would want to redistribute as well. I believe this has strongly enhanced my success on the Quuu platform.

In the “expired section”, here are the posts that have run the course of the blog promotion period which is typically around 30 days. However, you can always return back to this section to “repromote” a post as well (this applies to any post that has already been accepted by their moderation).

In the “drafts section”, this is where the posts that you’ve started but have not yet completed in the promote post section will be located. Granted this is not an option that I’ve needed to use before but it works the same as it would in any other platform where a draft section would exist.

On the Quuu dashboard you’ll also see a notification of how many submissions you have to go until you get a free credit which will also allow you to get some additional reach without spending any additional money. Think of it as a Quuu credit card. You can use this instead of physical money as a reward for successful submissions on their platform that can be redeemed anytime after they become available for you to use.

Additionally, for each successful blog post submission you can view how many days are left in each promotion, how many shares and clicks each one has received as well.

You may also notice the eye that symbolizes “more insight” under each approved post. When you click on that here’s what you’ll see:

Promote Your Blog With Quuu Promote Longshare Shortshare

Source

Notice the “long share details” and the “short share details”.

The long share is specifically for: Facebook, Google Plus and Linkedin. While alternatively, the short share details are strictly for Twitter.

I’ve redacted my actual verbiage for the long share and short share, but I would advise representing your content accurately in a way where you’re using words that express what you want to convey in a way that will encourage curiosity. This will lead to more clicks on your promoted content.

You can find words to express yourself more creatively here: Words to express yourself & here Mouthwatering List of Words.

With that said, while the dashboard may seem minimal it does provide very useful and insightful information.

This would conclude PART ONE of insights to Quuu promote. I’m going to delve further into other aspects of what this platform is about soon in part 2 on Quuu.

I’ll be showing you other posts I’ve submitted that disclose, verify and legitimize just how powerful this platform is in terms of online reach to people that wouldn’t have discovered this content without the help of Quuu. I’ll be sharing with you added insights about the loyalty badge showcase too.

Thanks for reading. If you liked the post please share it.

Minds.com Emerging As The Free Speech Social Media Hybrid Alternative to Facebook

Minds.com Facebook Social Media Alternative

Source

 

Minds.com and this is deemed a new and free speech social media alternative or replacement to Facebook.

I guess depending on who you are will determine how you land on your feelings about the purpose and mission behind Minds.com but CEO, Bill Ottman felt that Minds was a necessary and much needed alternative and when you look at it’s growing popularity, he may have been right.

Nevertheless, there’s a lot’s that been going on in Facebook land and I mean lots. But what I’m going to focus on is the fact that Youtube channels are getting demonetized (has it happened to you yet ?) due to the nature of their content.

That may not seem like a big deal for some, but it’s a bigger deal than you may realize.

Nevertheless, let me say something for everyone and let’s call it the elephant in the room. None of us own Facebook and they can and will do whatever they want for anyone they choose.

In the context of this post and why I’ve written it, I’ll say this: if your content is not advertiser friendly on Youtube things are about to hit the fan for you and this may also be a sign of things to come for other online assets that you nor I own.

If your content is controversial or about sensitive subjects, you might want to think twice about two things:

The first is even posting it on Youtube and the second is even considering having it monetized there too.

Needless to say, depending on what you may blog or talk about, this could be MAJOR.. a game changer if you will, because we’re talking about people’s livelihoods. And if you’re in the content industry, we’re all relying on someone else as most of us aren’t developing our own products and even if we are we still rely on larger platforms (assets we don’t own) to help us get the word out and sell it.

This is why this particular adage still remains true..

NEVER put all your eggs in one basket. Meaning if your livelihood depends on Facebook or any online asset for that matter, you might want to find alternatives to supplement what you’re investing into those platforms.

With that said, it brings me to the heart of this post which is the introduction of Minds.com, a social media platform that many would say is the true free speech alternative to Facebook. Now, whether or not it will live up to that is anyone’s guess, but for now since it’s introduction in late 2016, it’s seen pretty reasonable growth and popularity among a growing fan base.

Minds.com is still in beta and I opened an account today and it’s been fairly easy to navigate. I’ll give you a run through of the features and what it means for you and your content.

Minds.com

When you get to the minds website, this is the image you’ll see:

Minds.com Homepage Sign Up And Login

Source

Just click here to sign up and login to Minds.

And then view this tutorial and or read about the rest of the featureset below.

 

Now that you’ve got that out of the way, the next step is getting familiar with everything at your fingertips once you’ve logged in.

Let’s start with the dashboard which encompasses the following tabs:

  • Newsfeed
  • Discovery
  • Blogs
  • Groups
  • Support

As I mentioned before I opened an account today. I’ve been on and off of their website several times familiarizing myself with how everything works and more importantly to see what kind of reach I could get from sharing content on Minds, and I have to say that the results were much better than I expected.

Let’s face it, a lot of times you sign up to a social network and you expect to get a few eyeballs on your content but you don’t expect to see nearly 700 views on your content “on the day you signed up”. And yes, I saw nearly 700 views today alone. Not bad.. pretty impressive actually. (You can verify my numbers after you've signed up and search for my profile "cwblogger" if this sounds too good to be true).

As I’ve discussed on this blog before about over 100 ways to get more traffic to your blog, Minds has now entered that discussion easily today too.

Minds.com Newsfeed

First things first, let’s talk about the newsfeed.

As you can see, there’s your username and some other options (as depicted by the buttons). In the image there’s the upgrade to plus option, affiliate program and there were a couple other ones that were there too when I got started and those are about earning money on Minds.

Minds.com Newsfeed

Source

Once you sign up, those two buttons go away.

NOTE: I highly advise signing up to earn money. Why ? Because they are monetization friendly (this is good for you) and commissions are currently at a generous 25%. As with most information you consume online, content creators are genuinely and not surprisingly trying to earn money and Minds encourages it.

Go Minds ! Love the way they think on that front.

Honestly, more social media websites are heading in the direction of that kind of thinking and it’s a more modern and contemporary perspective that has great potential in growing and connecting with an audience as a social media platform anyway.

Beyond those comments, I want emphasize that Minds.com is still in beta so everything you’re reading here can change as they are still making adjustments to features and functionality of their website.

Continuing on with the newsfeed, you’ll notice that there is a trending hashtags section and a feed of posts of topics and / or individuals that you follow.

You’ll also see boosted content on the right side of your newsfeed and I’ll be sure to talk about boosted content towards the conclusion of this post (if you can’t wait just scroll down to the bottom to see what boosted content is all about.. it’s pretty good stuff for your content visibility).

Minds.com Discovery Tab

As for discovery, clicking this tab will take you to this screen:

Minds.com Discovery And Trending

Source

You’ll see additional options at the top that include: videos, images and channels. Of course like with any other social app this allows you to find new channels, new images and videos to engage with. Even though it’s in its early stages, there’s a lot to choose from.

Since we’re talking about the discovery tab, you’ll also notice that your left pane looks a little more comprehensive because of the added tabs that include: trending, suggested, featured and my media.

So let’s talk about them for a minute.

Trending from what I can tell gives you the same results that you’ll see as when you click on the discovery tab. So we may as well say that discovery and trending are synonymous as they seem to generate the same results for each tab for videos, images and channels.

I’m not sure if that’s intended, but I don’t know.. I guess I was thinking it would be different, but it’s kinda strange that it’s the same, but that’s just me.

There’s also the suggested tab.

This is a bit different too because when you click on the tab, it gives you the ability to search for channels that are within “x” miles of your city of choosing ?

That’s a new one for me for a social media site of this kind, but I guess that also matches what is said about Minds.com in how it has Facebook like features as well as features from Youtube and Twitter too.

I guess you could call it a channel discovery engine in this section. The same can be said for images and video.

When images or videos are suggested, you can pass on the image or video or engage with it by: liking (thumbs up), disliking (thumbs down) and another option (haven’t tested it) that looks just like the retweet symbol from Twitter.

As for the “featured tab”, the results are different here. I’m not sure how this is accomplished in how Minds determines who gets featured but even so, the layout mimics what you see when you click on the trending tab.

Minds.com Blogs Tab

When you click on the blogs tab, you get a new subset of options here too that include: compose, featured, trending and my blogs.

Minds.com Blogs

Source

It’s pretty self-explanatory that the compose function is to write your own blog post and this brings me to another point about the blogs function. You can ditch where you’re currently hosting your blog and make a new blog on Minds.

I’m not saying it’s a good idea since it seems “only slightly better” than what you’d get starting a blog on Quora. However, if you want a pretty comprehensive place to write your blogs, I’d opt for something else until they’ve upgraded this a bit, but for those looking for something simple and straightforward that does the job per se, then a Minds blog might just be perfect for your needs.

The featured tab and trending tabs under the blogs section is for featured blogs and trending blogs. Once again I’m not really sure how they make the determination as to which blogs get this distinguished status.

The my blogs section is self-explanatory as well and if you have blogs on Minds.com it will show them in this section.

Minds.com Groups Tab

In the groups tab, you’ll be greeted with another subset of tabs that include the following: create, featured, trending and my groups.

Minds.com Groups

Source

The features follow the same pattern of the other subset tabs that I’ve addressed in other sections that you’ve read about to this point in this post.

I will say, however that I did find it a bit clumsy that when you go to the groups tab that you can’t just search for other groups ? That seems like something easy to incorporate but the only way to search is to use the main search function at the top of the page.

I didn’t care for that because you’re searching “everything” and there’s no way to limit the search to just groups or individuals. This is something I’d like to see get resolved before Minds comes out of beta.

With that said, the group that I created is called: “bloggerminds” if anyone reading this would like to join once they’ve signed up. Contributing to the overall mission of growing the blogging community through sharing, collaboration and networking is what the group is all about.

Now that we’ve discussed a great deal of what makes Minds.com the social media Facebook alternative that it is, let’s talk about how I ended up getting nearly 700 views on my content shared in my first day on Minds.

Minds has a feature called boosts.

As the name implies, it boosts your content. When you write or share content on Minds.com, that content is really only seen by your subscribers and unless you have a large following which you won’t when you start so you can’t expect much engagement.

So how can you grow your audience and visibility on the network ?

Boost your content.

I love the boost feature. One boost is only going to cost 10 cents and that’s only going to happen when you run out of points.

You’re going to get 1000 points just for signing up !

Seriously, where else can you get that kind of engagement ANYWHERE on the first day ?

When you’re talking about views.. not hits, not bots, real people looking at your content. You aren’t going to find this anywhere else, at least no where else that I’m aware of.

If you’ve got a real challenger to Minds at the moment in terms of views and engagement, leave a comment below, but my guess is that you probably don’t.

I can’t stress this enough.. I’ve gotten nearly 700 views and it’s only day one and I didn’t pay a dime for the visibility to my content. I paid $0.. absolutely nothing and that’s why if you write content or blog, you need to be on Minds.. if nothing else because it’s growing, it’s still in beta and your content has the potential to get more views on Minds.com than any other social media platform online and they encourage monetization too and you can’t go wrong there.

It’s a win win all around so stop reading and dilly dallying and get your Minds account.

Twitter Followers Increase Of 825% In Less Than 48 Hours With Rewst

Let’s start today with this Rewst review or overview. Well I know that name might not be all that familiar so let’s add another name to the conversation. Twitter. Now we’re talking. Whether you’re new to the traffic and social network game or not, Twitter is something you know something about. Now let’s keep going, so just hang in there with me okay. If you own a blog or a website you know that Twitter equates to good things when it comes to exposure and visibility online because half the planet uses Twitter which means a ton of people in the same place. With that said, it might not be Facebook, but tweeting and Twitter has become a household name. Rewst and Twitter have developed a nice relationship that means great stuff in store for you.

Rewst is a Twitter growth tool. It’s a new kid on the block that you can use to grow your Twitter account. The best part about it is that it has been reviewed by Twitter and completely complies with Twitter rules which is great for those of us who love Whitehat strategies in our online presence blueprint. With that said, if you’re looking for something “automated”, that’s a Twitter no no and we don’t roll like that around here and neither does Luke King, the founder of this handy tool.

With that said, I had received an email in regards to this tool which was more or less an invitation from Luke asking me to check it out. The email said:

Daniel,

Earlier this month, I launched a new tool with a friend at PeerFly that can help you grow large Twitter accounts that you can then use to promote PeerFly offers.

The tool, called Rewst, allows you to use a simple and compliant Twitter strategy for growing your Twitter accounts by following accounts that will like the content that you are posting on your own account. We've made it really easy to use and it's very effective.

Current Rewst (rewst.com) members are adding 50-100 new targeted followers a day to their accounts with very little time and effort.

We'd love for you to join and give it a try!

Luke also gave me a discount code in the email for a lifetime 30% off the product. If you want that discount code, just leave a reply in the post or email me and I can send the discount code your way.

Nevertheless, I have tried the tool and guess what. It works !!! I used it on an account that had been pretty dormant for a while and it only had 8 followers before I tried Luke’s tool. After less than 48 hours that account has grown to 74 organic followers. These are NOT paid followers for any of you that may be wondering and there was nothing automated about this process. Literally, I invested roughly 7 minutes yesterday evening and another 7 minutes this morning and I’m already at 74 followers. That is an 825% increase in followers which is AMAZING !

 

Twitter Growth Using Rewst

I’d challenge anyone to show this kind of growth using any other tool. For an out of the box tool such as this, I’m beyond impressed with how quickly this tool works and given the results. This is now in the blogger toolbox of resources that I use to grow my brand, blog traffic and presence online.

You may be wondering, well how does this work. Well lets get into that. I will give you an overview of what this tool is about.

Rewst Review And Tips How To Use Rewst Navigation Panel

Follow tab: you’ll see additional actionable items (e.g. fans, new followers, copy followers, keywords and suggestions).

  • Fans, as best I can guess at this point are people that love your content.
  • New followers: these are the people that have followed you most recently so they are the newbies to your Twitter follow base. I think this is cool and it gives you a new list of people to start a conversation with, introduce yourself, promote a popular piece of content or a product.
  • Copy followers: this is hands down the most practical and useful feature of this tool and I think you’ll like it too. You can target anyone with a Twitter account by their handle and copy their followers. You may be wondering, well why is this so good ? Well if your content is about lawnmowers, you want people interested in lawnmowers right ? So find someone with a targeted audience with lawnmowers. Copy their followers and start following them. One of two primary things will happen. (1) They will follow you back. (2) They won’t follow you back. It’s that simple. In fact, if your content is similar to mine, you could use my Twitter handle “@candidwriter” and copy my followers and see who follows you back. With that said, you may also wonder… well how do I know who’s followers to copy. Well that’s where the next feature comes in to play.
  • Keywords: by typing in a keyword and in my case you could type in something along the lines of blog sites, blog tips, blogging tips etc. you’ll find Twitter accounts that focus around those type of keywords. The tool will bring up several accounts that you can target to find other Twitter users that may be interested in your content that lines up with the very keyword you searched for in the first place. I’ve provided a visual for you below as seen in the image using the keyword: blog tips

  • Suggestions: in this section, Rewst gives you Twitter account suggestions in five different categories: sports, entertainment, music, digital creators and news. I’m not sure if they plan to add more to this section in the future, but for now this is what is there and you’ll find several accounts that align well to each category.

The next major tab is the Unfollow tab. In this section you’ll find additional actionable items (unfollowers, non followers, inactive followers).

  • Unfollowers: are those that used to follow you but don’t any longer. This isn’t much different than what you’d find any other Twitter tool.
  • Non followers: are people you’re following but they aren’t following you back. As for this section, if they haven’t followed you back after 72 hours to a week, I’d just let them go, but it’s your choice, but it helps to keep people on your list that want to follow you as much as you want to follow them, but everyone has their own perspective on this, but for the sake of this post, I’m just sharing my perspective with you.
  • Inactive followers: people you’re following that haven’t been tweeting. With that said, if they aren’t active, remove them from your list.

The next major tab is the Tools tab. Here you’ll find actionable items such as (manage blacklist, manage whitelist, follow history).

  • Manage Blacklist: this is a section where you can block the people that you don’t want to follow in the future and they won’t show up while you’re performing any action. Basically out of sight and out of mind. So if you’ve got someone on your list that’s rubbed you the wrong way and you no longer want to be associated with them, this is the section for you.
  • Manage Whitelist: alternatively speaking these are the individuals that you want to follow and want to be associated with regardless of whether they are following you back or not. You don’t want the people in this section showing up in your non followers or inactive followers sections.
  • Follow History: very straightforward, shows you your own following history. Who have you followed on your own without using the tool and who have you followed using Rewst.

The final major tab is the More tab. The actionable items here are (FAQ and contact us).

  • Within the FAQ, you’ll find limited information but it’s still worth a look from a curious standpoint. I’m assuming that this section will grow over time. However, you can also check out their knowledgebase as well for additional information.
  • On the contact us page, there’s a dialogue box where you can provide information pertaining to questions or other suggestions that you have.

Beyond that, there’s nothing else to share about this tool other than the reality that it’ll grow your Twitter audience remarkably fast. So with that said, stop reading this, download the tool and get growing !
