  • I’d like to start off today’s presentation with a brief history of BzzAgent. Our CEO started BzzAgent in 2001 after reading Malcolm Gladwell’s Tipping Point. At this point we effectively started the WOM industry. In 2002 we anticipated the ethical debates around WOM and social media marketing and established the first Code of Conduct. We also recognized we needed an industry trade group to focus on these issues full-time, and helped establish WOMMA. In 2009 and 2010 we expanded our digital WOM capabilities, utilizing Facebook’s “open graph” and Twitter’s API to help brands create broad online exposure through our Agents. We also partnered with leading analytics firms Nielsen and IRI to add more comprehensive program analytics to our offerings. So far BzzAgent programs have been picked up in 12 MMM models conducted by these partners, with significant sales impact and positive ROI. BzzAgent is the ONLY social marketing company that has been picked up in MMM studies, which are the gold standard in media analytics approaches.
  • We hear from the biggest brands that participation is difficult. It’s one thing to create a Facebook Fan Page – it’s another to get anyone to do anything there. Yes, holding a sweepstakes will get people to sign up, but then they’ll either go silent or ask for more hand-outs. Way back in the late 90’s Jakob Nielsen created this diagram to describe typical online community behavior. The idea is very simple: in the vast majority of communities, the bulk of activity comes from a small group of people. These are the folks who create content, lead discussions, comment or rate other content, and share with others. This is contrast to the bulk of site users who simply read content without contributing – also known as “lurkers”.
  • We’ve focused on Reach and Impact because our clients have told us to. Marketers want to know their campaign is generating a positive return for their spend. And they want to know it’s reaching enough people to make a significant impact.
