Buzzfuse: How to Make Better Pie (part three)

March 12, 2008

Notes from a Patsak:

It is in our nature to want to share things with each other. It is in us, a humanistic impulse to do things that allow us to integrate different knowledge, opinions, feelings, and ideas into a sustainable community. It’s up to you if you want to do something important here and now. If you do want to do something great, a new kind of social interaction can grow through Buzzfuse and around it. And, then, we have a sure thing – a sure thing that we can own, together.

Do you believe that the internet can save your soul? Or, at least our humanity?

Recap of part one and two of my pie review

If you missed my first post about Buzzfuse (Try Pie. Try), go here. If you missed my second post (Delivery and Drive-thru Pie), go here.

After a little over a month of testing, I can honestly say that I like what Buzzfuse is about, what it’s doing, and where it is going. It is a groovey social mechanism for self-promotion- especially if you are a blogger, musician, photographer, etc. There’s a lot of potential in the Buzzfuse community, and things are going to get crazy soon as the word gets out that premium-member creators actually have a chance to bring home more than milk money from the earnings pool.

Buzzfuse supports content creators; it helps them market content and rewards creators for the rich content that brings content hunters. As such, Buzzfuse seems to be an ideal online business partner for the aspiring writer, photographer and musician. Buzzfuse has defined a very important niche for content creators and, hopefully, consumers are going to find they get a lot more out of Buzzfuse than other social media engines such as Digg and Stumbleupon.

The Buzzfuse service represents a meaningful innovation of social media; it provides a welcome alternative to the bad network marketing of online mlm and get rich schemes which push soul-less content at the media cafe. As such, it sets an important direction in the blogosphere just in time for newbies who are thinking about selling out their souls.

You don’t have to start with an original idea. Just take a headline out of the news and chew on it.

Buzzfuse: Delivery and Drive-thru Pie (part two)

March 12, 2008

Notes from a Patsak:

After a month plus of testing, I can honestly say that I like what Buzzfuse is about, what it’s doing, and where it is going. It is a groovey social mechanism for self-promotion- especially if you are a blogger, musician, photographer, etc. There’s a lot of potential in the Buzzfuse community, and things are going to get crazy soon as the word gets out that premium-member creators actually have a chance to bring home more than milk money from the earnings pool.

Will you sing for pie? Weebl will sing (below)!

Previous post on Buzzfuse

In my previous post on Buzzfuse, I provided some quick and dirty insight on some of the most popular social search/ social media engines out there: Blinklist, Del.icio.us, Digg, Fark, Furl, Ma.gnolia, Newsvine, Reddit, Simpy, Stumbleupon, and Tailrank. Although some use these engines for online self-promotion; these engines were not designed for such purposes and they are all, somehow, inadequate for helping the unknown creator market content to a larger audience.

Buzzfuse = Pie

Buzzfuse supports content creators; it helps them market content and rewards creators for the rich content that brings content hunters. As such, Buzzfuse seems to be an ideal business partner for the aspiring writer, photographer and musician. I have been testing it out for just over a month since I found G’s invitation to try pie in Linkedin. I’m ready to pronounce my review.

Notes from a Patsak:

Buzzfuse extends the social media bubble with self-promotion services and earnings for content creators. Finally, someone appreciates content creators- Buzzfuse. Find out why Buzzfuse is so different from popular social media/ social search engines such as Blinklist, Del.icio.us, Digg, Fark, Furl, Ma.gnolia, Newsvine, Reddit, Simpy, Stumbleupon, Tailrank, and Technorati.

Social self-promotion engine

There are too few social media and social search engines that can help the web two-oh!-er share themselves through content (opinion, snap shots of personal life, photography, or whatever) without outrageous costs or risk of online reputation.

Buzzfuse, a social media marketing engine out of South Africa, is an answer to at least two important questions that self-promoting newbies and veterans often ask themselves:

1. How can I reach out and share myself with the millions of internet users out there?

2. Can I make more than milk money doing so?
