#CoPromote Alternatives for Cross Platform Content Marketing

Elegant Themes for WordPress

With the recent shutdown, database crash website not found issues at #CoPromote it’s leaving many online content marketers wondering how to increase their reach. CoPromote offered an amazing way for users to share their content cross platform networks with ease.

I’ve gone and done some research to try and help you find the best networks to help replace that gap or void for online content marketers, be it personal or business related. The websites I share below are really great alternatives to what CoPromote was offering and should help you continue increasing your reach.

If you are interested in hiring me to submit your content to these sites for you, I do this as part of my DTFP Blog Engage Marketing Package, DTFP Marketing. Hiring me is like hiring your very own blog content marketing guy. Every time you post, I submit to these sites for you to help increase your blogs reach. Our package includes much more as well so have a peak.

Retweetbird allows you to submit tweets and offer other users credits for sharing them on Twitter. This site is also going to be adding Facebook and Google Plus into the credit based system. Overall a great platform I recommend using it. This site allows you to share your content and also to earn credits from sharing others. All CoPromote users who sign up, send me a Tweet @blogengage or @bbrian017 and In will apply free 10,000 credits to your account.

Blog Engage (where you are now) is a great platform paid blogging community that allows you to share your posts with one another increasing your traffic and blog readership. Blog Engage is also a great place to find like minded bloggers to engage with and find new content creation ideas.

Guest Crew is a long time up and coming cross platform social media site that really has the potential to replace CoPromote and much more. This site will increase shares on Facebook and Twitter. It’s very user friendly and I am sure you will all love the concept behind this website. This site allows you to share your content and also to earn credits from sharing others.

ViralContentBee is my next big suggestion. This site has been around for a while and is starting to pick up traction. It’s a great way to offer users credits to share content for you. VCB is special where it actually includes Pinterest, Stumble Upon, Facebook and Twitter.

Flauntt is a really neat concept I found out about today. I like it a lot as its has cross platform alternative to CoPromote which will help increase the reach of your content. You simply add your link, title and a few other details, this is also a credit based system. Users earn credits for sharing your content across multiple social media platforms.

JustRetweet is owned from a friend of mine Chris. He’s done such a great job building this nice platform to increase Twitter shares for your content. This platform is also credit based allowing you to offer more or less credits for each blog post or content you share on the platform.

LinkSocial looks like it has a lot of potential but sadly has many bugs right now. However with that said I recommend adding it to your favorites list I’m sure it will be running smooth in no time. When it does it will be a great way to promote your content and a great alternative for CoPromote members.

buzz4buzz looks lie it may have potential as well, but it also has some bugs. I have signed up using my Twitter and right now it’s saying I didn’t and to try again. Like the previous site I recommend adding it to your list it has a ton of potential with more development.

If you have any other suggestions I’d love to hear them, please leave a comment below and I will update the post with your suggestion including a link to your blog, who left the suggestion as a thank you. If you are a business or personal blogger and wish to hire me to use these sites for you, please sign up to our DTFP Services.
