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.

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

  • 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

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.

How To Get Your Blog Noticed - How To Promote Your Blog Website

How To Get Your Blog Noticed And How To Promote Your Blog

Blogging is everywhere. We are a society of individuals that truly have a thirst for knowledge. We seek out that information in news feeds, rss feeds, classified websites, directories, promotional ads, social media, Google and just about anything else you can think of. Information is everywhere thanks to the internet and the endless opportunities that it provides for greater consumption of data, facts, opinions and more.

So with that said the reality is that with the prospects that are in front of us many turn to blogging. Everyone knows something about something and that means that starting your own blog gives you the chance to be able to let your voice be heard in a way that it wouldn't be able to otherwise. Whether it's a controversial opinion, a reaction to something you saw or read about or reviewing products online, there's a reason to start a blog for any number of reasons you can come up with.

However, that's just the beginning. Understanding how to play nicely with the search engines.. or "engine" I should say since Google is the big daddy of them all is another issue altogether. Getting the content that you work so diligently to put together in front of the masses can be frustrating. Building a targeted group of listeners for your email list, subscribers to your RSS feed and ultimately traffic to your website are huge concerns for anyone interested in taking on the blogging challenge. These things take time, patience and perseverance and a willingness to understand that it's a "process" and not something that happens overnight.

With that said, here are popular solutions to increase your blogs visibility online:

TIP: As you consider establishing accounts at any of these websites, make sure that you also "contribute" and participate. While submitting your own blog posts is the plan, DO NOT SPAM. We all want the internet to be a place where we consume information of value. As a blogger, becoming a better "sharer" of information is important and applies to content that is not only yours but also becomes applicable to any relevant content that you come across online that can be useful and helpful to others.

Blog Engage

This website works for a variety of topics. This is popular among bloggers for content promotion. However be aware that Blog Engage charges more "upfront" before their "advertised" prices kick in. I've contacted them about this but no one has responded.

Dlvr.It

The focus for this website is to publish your content to major social networks. A very cool feature associated with this website is that it can automatically add relevant hastags to your posts.

Growth Hackers

This website publishes content that is closely related to marketing, business, technology and social media.

JustReTweet

Justretweet is a website that works for nearly any blog type. The services are "moderated". You earn credits and pay others to publish your content. It's "very" easy to earn credits. Currently you can have content published to Google Plus, Twitter and Facebook.

Kindle Publishing For Blogs

Kindle publishing for blogs works for many different blog types and allows you to add your blog to the Amazon marketplace and people pay to subscribe to your blog. Another nice option to get added exposure for your blog and generate revenue as well.

LinkyTools

Linkytools is a nice option for nearly any blog type too. You can participate in blog rolls (great option for added blog exposure), get added to the Linkytools Directory which can drive traffic to your blog. Their advertising is "super cheap", but it takes some creativity to convert the traffic and is certainly worth the consideration.

Medium

Anyone is allowed to publish a story on Medium so this works for all blog types. You can get a lot of mileage out of this website if you participate, contribute and interact with other users.

Onlywire

Onlywire starts you out with 100 promotions to social networks. It works for most blog types and you can sign up for 50 social websites. However keep in mind that if you sign up for all 50, after just 2 posts, your free account will be exhausted, then you'll be prompted to upgrade to a paid option. Their automation and system works well to get your content out to several social networks without having to sign in and push content to each one every time you publish a post. You truly set it and forget it.

Outbrain

Their paid content delivery platform (Outbrain Amplify) is getting lots of attention. After they approve your blog, you can get clicks for as little as 4 cents from major outlets such as CNN, Forbes and many others. Great option if you're looking for high quality promotion and traffic.

Triberr

This website is all about bloggers helping bloggers to share useful content and it works for nearly any kind of blog. You apply to get into a tribe and once you're in the tribe you can start to share your content. However, it's not just about sharing your content, it's about sharing content that is useful so keep that in mind as you post.. Share information that is valuable even if it's information that you found on someone else's blog. Remember it's about bloggers helping bloggers.

ViralWoot

Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook provide the most referral traffic of any social website online. Viralwoot, formerly known as Pinwoot, helps you to build your Pinterest audience. They award you with "seeds" when you sign up. You use the seeds to get followers and increase your influence on the website. When someone follows you, they get awarded seeds. No unfollowing is allowed.. violations of this will get you banned. Great concept and valuable to anyone with a website or a blog. Considering Pinterest's high traffic stats, this helps you to build blog exposure using their system.
