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
- Website promotion
- Facebook pages
- Books and e-books
- 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.
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.
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 a post
- Active posts
- In review
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.
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:
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.
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.
