With my blog’s first giveaway running, I really wanted it to succeed. But grabbing enough eyeballs in a hugely developing blog industry is tough.
On 23 January, I read a blog post update from Justin Germino, of Dragon Blogger, using a tool called Dlvr.it. Intrigued, I decided to check it out.
What is Dlvr.it?
Dlvr.it lets you connect with readers and “deliver” your content on various social media platforms, the usual ones would be Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Dlvr.it provides bloggers, publishers and brands a way to instantly syndicate content and expand their reach on the social web and into new channels.
Not too unique.
Buffer and Triberr also have a similar model.
What is so Amazing about Dlvr.it then?
I ventured into its “promoted stories” section where with just $1 you can promote a “story” over a wide network base.
I wanted to promote the giveaway – I created this Story & paid $1.
The results were amazing. See for yourself. The data is from 23 Jan to 26 Jan, 2013.
For just $1, I got all these views. It was just mind blowing.
Where does Dlvr.it Promote Stories?
Dlvr.it shares the “promoted” stories across 4 verticals:
- Search – Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Ask
- Social Networks – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, Tumblr, Reddit, Scoop.it.
- Mobiles & Tablets – iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry, Kindle, nook and others.
- News Sites & Feeds – MSNBC, New York Times, ABC News, cNet, Gizmodo, Boing Boing, CNN, Boston News, Daily Globe, Market Watch, Parade.com, Seattle Times and many more!
Forget the money. Unless you’re a ultra popular blogger, getting so many page views in 3 days is not a cup of tea for many of us. Right?
Note that the $1 price works only for your first story. From second promotion onward, it will be $30 to deliver on all the four verticals given above.
$30 per story is a good deal, still. If you have something very unique to share, $30 will pale in comparison to ROI.
Isn’t Dlvr.it worth trying?
