    After about 21 months of working on and privately beta testing a social media marketing community website (app coming soon) intended to facilitate free shoutout (s4s) trading among Instagram and Twitter users with a similar following, we are finally ready to launch to the public. :cheerlead


    Here's my original post requesting private beta testers (which went quite well and got an overwhelmingly positive response): http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-twitter-shoutout-community-free-trading.html


    So basically how it works is, you create a free account and import any Instagram and / or Twitter accounts that you have. It will automatically show you all users within a 20% range of yours that you can sort by category if you wish. You can then request a trade with those users for a shoutout. It will then prompt you for your shoutout text/image to send to the other user. That user will be notified by text/email that there is an incoming request and can then respond in the same fashion. At the end you will rate each other to complete the trade. It's 100% free and we will never charge for any trading!


    My strategy is to have a soft launch with users of this community as well as some other social media marketers and get feedback and adjust anything that needs to be adjusted further before we spend money advertising and get it out to the masses. I literally am posting about the public beta launch here first and gradually letting people know about the site slowly until I'm positive everything will work when we really push the site/app. We have had about 100 private beta testers but please keep in mind that the community is brand new and needs some time to grow before it really gets going.

    Please post or PM me with any bugs or suggestions you have. If you enjoy the site I'd really appreciate a thanks or post. We tested extensively, believe me, but I'm guessing there could be something we overlooked...there always is.

    Without further ado, here's the link: https://www.shoutoutpost.com/

    We are planning on adding more social media platforms in the future. On the top of our list is Facebook and Snapchat.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this and hopefully you enjoy the site!

    Love the idea and website layout.

    I do have one usability suggestion, which is making the homepage as user profile or trades page for users that are logged in, rather than the current homepage which asks logged in users to create account again. It just doesn't quite make sense imo.

    Looks interesting enough, one question - when you say import account. Do we have to give our IG account details/password to this software?

    No it goes directly through Instagram / Twitter. We don't store any password info.

    Thanks man! I actually did find a couple small bugs that were hard to catch with private beta that we're going to fix up later today. Just things like putting in weird characters in posts like '<" etc. makes the trade not go through. If you come across anything like that please let me know.

    Thanks for sharing the postforpost app. It's interesting to see how someone else does something similar and also interesting to see they call it a share instead of a shoutout.

    nicely done. Good landing page. Really clean interface. I would consider adding some account metrics to judge engagement of accounts.

    Same question here, apparently seems they don't store any account details as i would discourage everyone from signing up then

    Would I be able to retweet another page if I add my twitter page to the site?

    Nice idea, I did sign up and I got one trade offer, but that account seems to have fake followers and likes, so I think you should keep an eye on these kind of accounts and ban them, just a suggestion tho, great job!
