Crowdfire has raised my social media game to a whole new level because their app single-handedly increase my Twitter followers. Crowdfire’s smart algorithms and its user-friendly interface make it my go-to social media tool for Twitter. It was the easiest and fastest way I’ve discovered to get not only more Twitter followers, but also more engagement.

I launched Media Medusa, an entertainment blog, in the fall of 2013. At that time, my social media efforts were minimal. I set my blog to automatically send new posts to Media Medusa’s Facebook page and Twitter account. I almost never used Pinterest for my personal stuff, let alone business stuff. And I didn’t even have an Instagram account.
I quickly realized that to increase my traffic and attract sponsors I needed to increase my followers in every social media platform. I devoured blog posts at HubSpot, Buffer, Social Media Examiner and Hootsuite, as well as smaller blogs, educating myself on good social media practices. I implemented every strategy that resonated with me. I shifted my social media practices as platforms changed their policies and algorithms. All the while, I only saw very small increases across the board.
I was rubbing sticks together while other blogs were setting bonfires with gas lighters.
In December, 2016, a friend and fellow blogger from 2 Dorks in Love said she was seeing great results with Crowdfire. I visited their website and I liked what I saw. Crowdfire would help me find the right followers, re-post content based on my interests, schedule posts at the optimal time to engage my audience, find images to share and much more. I decided to sign up for their free plan and give it a go.
I loved it almost immediately! I didn’t have to track down people to follow or unfollow on Twitter. I also didn’t have to guess when to Tweet. And I could create one post that would get posted across every social media platform, optimized for each channel, without doing a thing.
Very quickly, I realized I wanted a better plan than the free one, so I could link more than one account and post more often. I signed up for the Pluto plan at $9.99 a month.
Crowdfire’s user interface is unbelievably easy to use.
Anyone — and I mean anyone — can use Crowdfire. It notifies me when it’s time to “work.” I open the app, and it walks me through each step for each social media channel. It finds content that’s related to my brand that I can share. It also finds appropriate images to share. Thanks to Crowdfire, I only spend about five minutes a day on the app and the benefits have been huge.
My Twitter followers number has skyrocketed. Here are some stats on the increase in my Twitter followers and engagement from Dec. 15, 2016 (when I signed up) to Mar. 4, 2018, which was the day before I originally made this report.
Twitter was definitely the social media channel that saw the most growth from using Crowdfire. Take a look.
I increased my followers from 5,900 to 7,600 in about 14 months. That’s an increase of 129%! I gained approximately 121 new followers per month.
Those increases were a direct result of using Crowdfire. It sifts through the noise to help me find and share content that will have high engagement. And it helps me find the best influencers to follow.
Nothing Is Perfect
There is something I’d love to see added to or improved upon in Crowdfire.
I’d like to see more analytics features in Crowdfire. I get daily snapshots, but I’d like more control over reporting. For instance, I used Hootsuite (another social media dashboard I subscribe to) to get analytics for this blog post. Although I will be downgrading Hootsuite this year and putting all my eggs in Crowdfire’s basket (no need to pay for two services when one is kicking butt), having some solid analytics reports would be useful.
You should add Crowdfire to your digital marketing toolkit. Start with their free plan to get the feel for it. Then, when you’re ready, sign up for a paid plan and watch your numbers soar.
