There’s a lot of buzz about Buzz

10th May 2021

There’s an army of people and potential supporters out there with their phone in their hands absorbing and sharing content. There’s no reason that it shouldn’t be your content they're sharing. With the right tool, it’s easy.

We’ve hailed user-generated content (UGC) as a stretched marketers superhero on a few occasions, with good reason. Done right it can rapidly increase your brand awareness, amplifying your message and KPI’s without you breaking a sweat. Sounds blissful, doesn’t it? Especially when we barely have enough time in the day for a cup of tea. Enter Buzz Social Posters…

Buzz is a digital customisable template that can be embedded directly into your campaign page. Designed by you, edited by your audience it can be instantly shared across the social sphere. It can effectively;

  • Raise brand awareness
  • Boost awareness of your key message/ issue
  • Increase supporter engagement
  • Support fundraising activity
  • Extend your brand and campaign audience and reach

Buzz superstars

We get to work with some amazing organisations on great campaigns with Buzz. Here are some examples of live Buzz campaigns for you to check out.

RNID - #DeafAwarenessWeek

For this year’s deaf awareness week, the RNID wanted to do something different and supersize deaf awareness through their #BeDeafAware campaign. As part of their campaign, they decided to integrate a Buzz template.

Over the last year the regulations around face coverings, perspex screens and social distancing have created numerous challenges for those living with hearing difficulties or loss. Therefore, as part of this campaign, they wanted to include a digital communication card for those facing these challenges, to personalise to their specific circumstances.

Check out their campaign page.

We’re going to check in with them in a couple of weeks to see what they say about Buzz.

Crohn’s and Colitis UK

Crohn's and Colitis UK’s ‘It takes guts’ campaign is aimed at those living with the diseases, to help them find the words and speak up about it to those around them. Bringing together the community, encouraging them to use their voice, increasing awareness with those not living with the disease, helping break down the stigma.

They use Buzz so that people living with it can illustrate and share on social channels how they feel. You can see the Buzz template here.

Spread your campaign wings

Imagine that you want to raise awareness around the impact that the pandemic has had on mental health. How it has affected those who live with a mental health problem, those who have had a mental health problem arise during the pandemic and those who want to show their support for those living with it.

You understand that it takes courage for people to speak out about their mental health problems so your campaign objectives are around building a community, positive energy and momentum through messaging to strengthen their voices so they know that they're not alone.

You want to get people talking, interacting with the campaign and generally creating a buzz across the social sphere. You know that whatever you give participants needs to be consistent, personalised and can’t be too complicated.

Imagine what Buzz Social Posters can do to supersize your campaign...

It's been an honour to work with your fantastic team on this project! Glad it's ready for the world to see.
