I joined the Social Buzz Club 2 years ago after seeing one of my blog posts Retweeted with the hashtag #sbzclub. At the time, I had no idea what the hashtag represented but since the retweet came from an Influential Tweeter my curiosity was piqued. Some of you might be familiar with the Social Media Maven known as Ching Ya. Here is that tweet that caught my attention:

The post that Ching Ya shared on Twitter is a guest post from Tom Treanor titled Blog Writing Checklist: Have You Covered These 8 Blogging Essentials (what a great post – you should check it again even if you read it before). Tom was a member of Social Buzz Club and it turns out he submitted his guest post to the community where it could be shared on all of the top social networking platforms influencers like Ching Ya, Amy Porterfield, Denise Wakeman, Lou Bartone, Rebekah Radice, David Leonhardt, Rebecca Livermore, Gina Carr and many many others.
Social Buzz Club Background
After I did some digging it didn't take long for me to find and fall in love with the Social Buzz Club. First and foremost, I was super impressed to learn that it was founded by two brilliant women entrepreneurs: Laura Rubinstein and Kathryn Rose. Here is the idea they had that formed the basis of Social Buzz Club.
Social Buzz Club works exactly the way it was intended from the start and although some may see it as a social sharing community, since the day I joined 2 years ago, I discovered that Social Buzz Club is so much more than just a place to find and share content. Let me explain what I mean by that.
Yes, your content will be shared.
Yes you will find fantastic content to share with your following.
But my favorite reason for introducing you to the Social Buzz Club is the unique learning experiences offered during their weekly webinars. There is always so much to learn in the constantly changing landscape of social media and the online marketing and the weekly webinars keep you on the cutting edge of what's hot and what's not in the online world.
It's vital for us to stay abreast with all aspects of content creation and content marketing and I can't think of any other social community that delivers access to this type of high value training on a consistent, on-going basis, then what you'll find in Social Buzz University.
All of the Social Buzz U webinars are free if you catch the live broadcasts (more about that later) so sign up to get notified for each session. Members have access to the full archive of online training in the learning center library.
How Is Social Buzz Club Different?
You might be wondering how this community differs from some of the other networking communities that I have talked about before like Blog Engage or Triberr for instance. One basic difference is the syndication of your content. With Blog Engage and Triberr your content is added to the social stream based on your RSS feed. To put it another way, your blog posts are automatically added to the system each time you publish a post. This is a fantastic feature that saves time and once you set it – you can forget it. Hit publish and boom, you're good to go.
But what happens if you want to promote one of your old blog posts? Or what if you have a page on your blog that you want to promote? What about promoting a landing page or squeeze page?
That's where Social Buzz Club comes in. You can submit any of your older content manually for other members to share. And even if that sounds too time consuming for you, check out their VA services. The rates are reasonable and it's a great option that you can use on a monthly basis if you're working on a project or taking on a new client.
Where Will My Content Be Shared?
Currently there a three networks that you can add to your account and that your content will be shared to by Social Buzz Club members:
- LinkedIn Pages, Profiles and Groups
- Facebook Pages, Profiles and Groups
You can add more than one of each of these which is another unique feature and I'm currently sharing to 3 different Facebook pages! Speaking of Facebook, let's talk about something that is a brand new feature of the site. They have hooked up with 22 Social Facebook App which will allow all community members to share the live broadcast of the weekly webinar on their own Facebook pages (this is HUGE people).
Oh btw, there's also a private Facebook Group for members to meet, mix and mingle as well.
Add Social Buzz Club to your social media marketing arsenal. I'm sure you'll find countless benefits just like I did. I didn't cover everything the site has to offer here but if you have questions let me know. If you're already a member of Social Buzz Club, please share your feedback and let other's know what the network has done for you.
