The following are stories of actual, current Buzz360™ customers .
Ryan is 33-year-old home improvement contractor who had a crew of five people working for him. He wanted his business to grow and recognizes the benefit of referrals, as well as the significance of staying in touch via email and social media to grow those referrals. He encourages every customer to leave feedback on his website and to share their experience on social media. He also belongs to the local builders’ association, and a couple of other organizations and maintains listings in their respective directories.
Ryan recognizes that for all the marketing he has going on, an automated system to manage it all would make his life so much easier. He looked into Infusionsoft, but it was far too complex. He realized it would take two weeks of training just to understand the product, and then another month to learn the software and import all his data. Ryan chose Buzz360™ because it had all the tools and features he needed to manage his marketing without any of the hassle of long learning curve. Since subscribing to Buzz360 2 years ago, Ryan has added a 2nd crew to his business.
A state political party organization provides a list of their endorsed candidates and officeholders to the public. The directory has an extensive profile of the candidates and provides a central place to donate to candidates. The party also provides candidates access to an online marketing platform to reach donors, volunteers and voters through emails, social media postings, and attractive websites. This organization used to use Hubspot but once they heard about Buzz360™, they realized it was a much more cost-effective tool that still had everything they need in a simplified manner. The first 6 candidates in the party to adopt Buzz360™ won their elections.
Most recently one of our clients, the former VP of North American Sales for SAP Business One, provided us with excellent feedback about his experience:
Buzz360™ is already in the market with approximately 500 small business customers from the sale/relationship of 6 partner customers:
1. The Minnesota GOP
2. Home Business Magazine
3. Edina Chamber of Commerce
4. Duluth Wedding Show
5. Flag Family Radio
6. Leading Results Marketing Agency
We are currently in talks with the Republican National Committee as well, and will soon start a partnership with Xero and Freshbooks in which we will build an interface to their products and sell to their customers. We have performed this type of partnership successfully in the past with SAP.
Moving forward, we will continue to expand our sales by targeting more large organizations with multiple subsidiaries or smaller entities within them (such as franchises) in order to capture a large amount of business customers at once. The Minnesota GOP, Home Business Magazine as well as the Edina Chamber of Commerce sales gave us access to all of their customers, for a much more efficient selling process for Buzz360™.
We are also working on future products such as:
- Pre-written industry content, including blog posts and emails.
- Connections to online industry marketplaces like Angie’s List, Houzz, Roofers Talk, etc.
- Enhanced social media features & digital advertising.
