BuzzStream helps you manage word-of-mouth marketing campaigns that create buzz, build links, and increase traffic to your website by helping you “be found” via inbound marketing channels.
Search engines and social media have fundamentally changed the way that people shop and learn about products. Media fragmentation has resulted in millions of micro-influencers having conversations about products and services across the social web. Building and effectively managing relationships with these influencers is the key to getting found by customers.
Enter BuzzStream. We bring order to the chaos of developing authentic relationships with word-of-mouth influencers across the social web.
