Presenting… the leading edge in social media marketing!
Social Buzz Club is the world’s first collaborative content syndication site and pay-it-forward social marketing tool.
SBC where savvy social networkers get the word out for each other so they can drive traffic, increase online sales, and build a positive widely-recognized reputation for themselves, as well as their clients.
The community members are highly connected social media professionals, business owners, online marketers, bloggers and entrepreneurs who share each others’ content to their Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn networks and also bookmark fellow members’ links. Social Buzz Club is a robust site and innovative social marketing tool which provides members sharing tools and buttons all in one place.
When members share content they typically have the opportunity to earn valuable points. This gamification encourages collaboration and reciprocal sharing. A member can add his/her content to the community once he/she earns enough points. New ways to earn points are being added to our system to make it even more fun and an active collaboration site.
Once upon a time, two friends and social media marketing colleagues were talking about how they could work together and help one another spread the word about their new clients. One had a new client she was working with and wanted to get some exposure to the valuable content this client created, the other a charity who was running a campaign and also needed exposure to increase awareness.
The tools they had weren’t quite doing the job.
They knew that clients were no longer satisfied with the number of fans and followers, it was all about return on investment (ROI). Clients wanted to see their communities in action, sending traffic to their websites, actually converting them to customers or donors.
They needed something new and innovative with a broad reach.
They agreed that this was a challenge and thought that they probably weren’t the only ones with that same challenge.
Then, they said “what if?” What if a marketing collaboration network could be set up comprised of professionals in the social media, thought leadership and entrepreneurial space, with the sole purpose of spreading the word about each others’ businesses or clients in an authentic, positive way? This would extend the reach of the client’s message and encourage the sharing of quality content across the social media platforms.
What if it was set up so that the content can be global or local, thereby increasing the number of targeted prospects — increase ROI for the clients? Even better, what if members can share content of their own, and gain exposure for themselves?
The idea for the Social Buzz Club was born. You are about to access the social marketing tool that is the brainchild of this active collaboration. Viola! success!
