Viral Content Buzz – Take Social Media Promotion to the Next Level (For FREE)

Sep 20, 2012   //   by Gerald Weber   //   SEO Blog, Social Media  //  22 Comments

You spend hours researching and writing a great blog post. After editing it several times, you finally hit publish. Shortly after tweeting out a link to it, you notice some of your friends and colleagues sharing the link on Twitter and Facebook. Thanks to this push, readers start coming and you receive several comments on your post. Unfortunately, just as everything seems to be moving in the right direction, it all stops! No more comments, visitors or Tweets. You’ve hit the point where your buzz has completely fizzled out.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to keep the momentum going for posts that you put so much effort into creating? Since myself and everyone else I know within the blogosphere has experienced this problem, I decided to do something about it. With the help of my amazing friend and co-founder Ann Smarty, we created a new social media promotion platform: Viral Content Buzz.

Viral Content Buzz 101

The one sentence summary of this platform is that you can get more social promotion for the great blog posts you write by sharing other people’s great posts through your social media presences. This is done by earning and using credits. You get credits for sharing, and can then use those credits to get your best posts promoted. Keep in mind that all of this is 100% FREE!

In addition to being free, we feel that our focus on quality is what’s going to make VCB incredibly effective for users. Because we want to create the best platform possible for our users, we:

  • Manually review submissions to ensure they meet our quality guidelines
  • Only allow real social media accounts to share (no bots)
  • Reward users who have taken the time to build a strong social media presence with more credits
  • Tailor the posts in your dashboard to your industry and interests

Now that you know what Viral Content Buzz is all about, watch this great video that Ann made so you can see the site in action:

The Start of Something Big

Viral Content Buzz is up and running, so you can go sign up now. While we’ve already got a lot of great features, we’re committed to continuing to build on our solid base. Here are some of the additions you can expect to see in the coming weeks and months:

  • Support for Google Plus, Pinterest and StumbleUpon sharing
  • The addition of a table view layout and the ability to easily switch between both layouts
  • Email notifications of project approvals, rejections or stoppages
  • Click through reports that detail how much traffic came from users’ shares
  • A browser bookmarklet for one-click project additions
  • The ability to see the Wuzzrank (social buzz authority) on existing projects

As always, I want to thank you and all of my readers for your amazing support! Once you sign up and try out Viral Content Buzz, be sure to leave a comment with what you think about it!

    Congratulations on the site Gerald! You and Ann have done a fantastic job getting this site off the ground. I’m already part of the community and I see it growing nicely. I love the YouTube video too. Thanks.

    • Gerald Weber

      Thanks Ileane. I appreciate the kind words and confidence. Ann and myself have been actually talking about this for about a year. However we have just been putting it to action for probably about the past 4 or 5 months (behind the scenes). It’s really exciting and satisfying to see our vision of a great “social sharing solution” coming to life. We have lots and lots of cool updates in store for the future, so keep your eyes peeled! 😉

    Great idea, it is very disappointing to have your blog move further and further down a page and get no visitors. This may prove to be very useful I am on my way there now , cheers!

  • Chris Adams

    I liked the expression “blogosphere” 🙂 But still I think you did a great work. It’s a great idea, and I am sure that people will use it. And the youtube video is really cute!

  • Niels says:

    Social Media is a really important aspect when you are blogging. If you want to get ranked high with your own website you need to combine good quality content with Social Media. So using this Viral Content buzz is really a must for websites!

    Thanks for these great tips and keep up the good work!

There’s no denying the importance of taking advantage of social media, and it sounds like you have some truly solid principles driving Viral Content Buzz. I signed up and I’m going to be looking more into the service this weekend. Quality free tools to help with promotion are always appreciated!

    I use My Blog Guest and will surely check this one as well. It seems to be a very relevant product since we all face this problem when the articles/blog posts get noticed for a few days and then dies down. Thanks Gerald for sharing this

  • Duane Reagan says:

    Really i like your creative job, which is very helpful to me. Because i want to know and learn about social media for my own interest.

  • I am sure every blogger would face a similar situation. Most of them do not know how to proceed from there. Really an informative post to the ever growing list of burgeoning bloggers. Kudos to the writer!

  • I love writing guest posts on different tools, so I’d love to write one about this–if you have any tips or anything you’d like me to add, just let me know!

    • Gerald Weber

      That would be super Amanda!

      Also you can get extra credits for writing your review, so that will be just icing on the cake. I guess the main thing I’d like you to mention is that we will be adding Google Plus, StumbleUpon and Pinterest in the near future.

      We really appreciate your support! 🙂
