Hey everyone, excited to be on PH again! We love it here and thanks again to Ben for the hunt :-) With Quuu Promote you can promote your content to real and relevant people across Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+ simultaneously from just $10 for 30 days worth of exposure, shares, and increased social interaction! Your content is shared as a content suggestion by regular Quuu.co users who have subscribed to the interest category to which you submit your article, so your content doesn’t appear like an advert or sponsored post - it’s shared naturally by real people to relevant followers. A few new things since we last launched Quuu Promote. - New-look app - New referrals system - New Loyalty badge system - We now send out over 60,000 promoted posts every day! - New Analytics page coming shortly :-) Thanks so much for checking it out, we'd really appreciate hearing your thoughts and suggestions. Special thanks to the whole team at Quuu for all their hard work over the past few months. We'll be here all day (and night) ;-)

@danielkempe A huge amount of credit also needs to go to Dan for his flawless design work. Sam and Dan worked their asses off on this app and we're delighted with the result. Hope you will all agree guys!!! :-) Thanks @BenTossell for the hunt!!

@matthewspurr I like the idea. May I know what is the reach of each post on an average?

@ram_rayavarapu Well we use very liberal estimates to ensure we're not over promising on reach stats. We do this by only taking into account average Twitter followings (even though we share across all major social platforms, not just Twitter) and we account for an average following of just 500 (which is much lower than most of the Quuu users sharing this content. As a rough guide to estimate the reach you'd get, for content in the following tiers: Tier 1 ($10) - 10,000+ Tier 2 ($20) - 30,000+ Tier 3 ($30) - 100,000+ Tier 4 ($40) - 300,000+ Tier 5 ($50) - 500,000+ What tier a submission is entered into depends on the popularity of the interest category to which it relates too. So the more subscribers, the more times your content will be shared :-) Hope that helps!! :-)

@matthewspurr @ram_rayavarapu First, let me say that this is a beautiful app and a great concept. In concept, this makes my job as a content lead a little easier. But here's the reality... We're experiencing a lot of shares (in the hundreds) but not so many clicks (about 5 clicks over the course of 3 weeks). The Quuu support team said this was because we opted to use a custom utm link instead of the Quuu link, but I've discovered this not to be the case. Even after switching to the the Quuu link, we're still only seeing 1-2 clicks per week. I'll be the first to admit that this could be because of our copy or image, but it may also be because of the quality of "influencers" on Quuu's platform. Being generous, I'll say it's a combination of the two. That said, I'm glad we tried it out, and we'll probably try it out again. We used the "coding" category and it only costs $40 for 30 days, so it's worth experimenting with more. Again, the concept is great -- and everything is very intuitive. My only criticism is the quality of people allowed to share content on the platform (thereby affecting the low clickthrough rate). The problem is, I don't think true influencers will sign up for the platform if we're only paying ~$40 because it seems the payout is too low for true influencers to participate. Criticism aside, thanks to the Quuu team to bringing this concept to life.

@gibbiv @ram_rayavarapu Hey Robert, thanks for taking the time to reply to us here! So re: you only receiving 5 clicks in a month, I'd say that this is certainly not a typical result, especially not in a category like coding. So maybe experiment with how you write your share text or the hashtags/image that you use etc.? The other point I'd make, to address your comment about the quality of people sharing Quuu content, we actually have it completely open to the public at large. Anyone in the world can share your content. If they state that they're interested in the same content that you're writing for, then they'll receive that content, because it's relevant to them and their followers. That's about as far as we take it to ensure that all the people out there that want this content can get their hands on it!! :-) Stick with us and hopefully you'll see some more clicks on your future pieces Robert.

@matthewspurr @gibbiv @ram_rayavarapu I think Robert may misunderstand how Quuu (proper) works. People aren't getting paid to share the content. The money is just going to Quuu Promote to add your link to the global queue. So, you're right in thinking that real influencers aren't incentivised to participate in Quuu because, well, their only incentive is "Get daily curated content aimed at your interests". As someone who has experience in the influencer space, I'm not interested in having someone else curate my social queue (especially since I know how much power it has). That was my initial reason for not using Quuu--I couldn't control/approve what was being sent out before it was sent out. And being that it's not that difficult to find quality content to curate these days, there was no way I was going to pay for a premium plan just for the purpose of being able to decide what gets added to my Buffer Queue. I think Quuu is going to have to decide if it's going to be a content promotion service or a content curation service. I don't see an easy or scalable path to trying to monetize both ends.

@dustinwstout @matthewspurr @gibbiv @ram_rayavarapu thankfully, we've already scaled the platform in such a way that it can be scaled further. Quuu works because we have both sides working for each other. Quuu is the middle man ensuring all content is high-quality. It's pretty simple really... We have now introduced a manual option for people like you who'd like more power over what's shared, and it's only $15/month! Considering how much time we save our users, it's a small price to pay. The good thing is that content you sift through has ALL been manually hand-reviewed by our content team.

@danielkempe I used an earlier version for content discovery. Will have to go have another look at the promotion side. Good work.

I've been LOVING Quuu since day one — or should I say from version one. Quuu and Quuu Promote are the first automated social-curation and social-promotion tools that made my jaw drop. During the first month, my Tweet impressions went up 169.4%, mentions 218%, retweets and likes 167%, and link clicks 467.5%. And the only thing I did was push go! The new dashboard makes it so much easier to track all that data. And the risk of throwing in one more stat … I 100% recommend everyone try it out.

@danielkempe 😂 I'm so glad I'm not the only one! I wanted to write "Quuu rubs me up the right way" but I thought it might cause a few raised eyebrows. 😆
