Our BuzzBundle Review: What a Great SEO Tool!
A large part of the ability to do great work for clients in the SEO & Social Media world, is the ability to help them gain social authority….meaning that in their own channel, they are perceived as experts who offer help and counsel freely.
Top quality counsel, mind you…and that can only come from using our best SEO & Social Media skills to build that online reputation for them invisibly.
Invisibly? Well, think on the contra side of that….what we do is we sell to a client our ability to get them SEO site rankings that are built on their Social Media program…and it’s not the client who does it – it’s us.
That is, each client who engages with us for a Social Media program, will always be held to the highest standards by their peers and it’s our job to ensure just that. We use many many and I do mean many types of tactics to strategize a client’s channel reputation and that includes using various social media sites to build that reputation in due course. Not like a “hockey stick” type of bar chart increases but instead a slow and steady incremental increase. We do that often of course, by developing and controlling the “voice” of the client in those social media sites and in almost all cases, we do that for the client on a daily basis.
So, BuzzBundle? It’s advertised as –
“a one-stop solution to post, respond, and engage in conversations on any social platform, with any number of social accounts, and all in a matter seconds. Act and join discussions on the Web as different people (you, company’s PR rep, CEO, customer care or whoever you have to represent as part of your job)…with any number of social accounts for each persona!”
And that did attract my attention…the claim that yes, this app can let me “be” as many other people that I want to be with any number of social accounts each.
Think on that for a moment, and you’ll see just what kind of value that could be to an SEO firm who has dozens of clients, all different and while in different channels all use the same social media sites. We can’t “be” the same person on say Twitter for a dozen clients, that can’t be done. We need to be 12 people at least, so that each Social Media program client gets their own voice as their own reputation is what’s being built.
So my basic need of “being” someone different for each different client just might be met by BuzzBundle!
So let’s see if what “should” be – will “be!”
Easy enough, download the free trial and then run the installer. Watch the video to see where and how I can configure these different personas and then use this one app, to “be” different clients all at a moments notice and change. Sounds easy enough, but was it?
The configuration wasn’t difficult to arrange, working out which streams to add and how, working out which Social Media sites you wanted to connect to wasn’t hard and the support areas helped. Clicking on the Find Buzz button always was a thrill as I noted the updates ripple across the screen and I loved that the new display always showed me a couple of areas I’d never even noticed before too! And the app uses a single Dashboard at full-screen size for me to track every single piece of data, that’s also great too!
But the fact that I can create, brand new personas, with matching new Twitter or Facebook or LinkedIn accounts too is so so near and dear to what we needed to do – that I was shocked that I didn’t know about BuzzBundle before this….my fault I expect as others have noted this already. But the simple method that they offered for we SEO practitioners to use to “be” different clients at the simple click of a button is a god-send!
It allows one to make all the accounts you need, just click and fill out a short form…yet it allows me to send out bulk account announcements to all my accounts again at a simple button click.
It allows one to make any kind of a message to anywhere anytime, like a comment or a private message or a followup query or a retweet or a reply….just click and type.
It allows one to add images if you want to…uploads em too…and even to shorten up any long URL too…all things that are so nice to see in the app as simple addons too!
But yes, you’d be thinking like I am, that there is more to BuzzBundle than this multiple persona thingy and you’d be correct and that too was a great thing to learn too.
For instance, Yelp will be added soon…which for our own local clients will help with reviews and such that we’ll need access to that site too. The app will also track my competitors too…via their URLs and let me see and know what their own SEO and Social Media programs are progressing too…a great boon for any SEO firm.
Plus, as a great believer in the value of Google+ and using same for SEO rankings, I noted with great satisfaction that BuzzBundle handles that social site too and well! So nice to see that the AuthorShip and Google+ work very nicely within BuzzBundle too! Kudos to the programmers for that especially!
So, all in all?
BuzzBundle works and with the ease of installation, setup and then configuration…it will become a a necessary part of any SEO firm’s tools….honestly, you must consider adding this one to your arsenal of working apps to help you and your clients gain SEO rankings that count…and count quick!Google
