FAQ’s

All the stuff you want to know, but don’t want to ask.

Buzz Frenzy allows you to create a personalized hashtag (a #Buzztag). We then monitor your Facebook feed. When you use your #Buzztag on a post, we apply Advanced Customer Targeting for your industry to that post and amplify it throughout Facebook to potential customer’s mobile and desktop feeds in a 314 square mile area centered on your front door.

We automate Facebook marketing through use of custom hashtags.

All you need to do is create a #Buzztag (a personalized hashtag) and add it to any of your Facebook posts you want to amplify. That’s it. That’s all. We do all the heavy lifting, so you don’t have to.

Yes, Buzz Frenzy is designed to help small businesses. If you are not on Facebook AND not a small business then you should really go outside and play. It’s a beautiful day.
Facebook takes all of the likes, comments, and shares from their site and uses them to paint very detailed descriptions of not just what a person “likes”, but what will cause them to take action. Advanced Customer Targeting uses that data to find people who are predisposed to buy what you are selling.
Having all this data allows us to zero in on people who are predisposed to buy from your business. Buzz Frenzy digs deep into who your customers actually are. Well beyond simply age and/or race, we can know how often they buy with a credit card, what kind of car they drive, whether they like Nascar or not, if they are a dog or a cat person, etc, etc, ad infinitum. Being that specific means you will only be spending money on the right people rather than shouting into a random crowd.
Have you ever notice that you don’t see everyone’s posts when you’re scrolling through Facebook? Have you ever caught yourself saying, “Huh, I didn’t see that post”? It’s because Facebook doesn’t show all posts to everybody. Quite frankly, you would be overwhelmed by it. The other side of that is, just because someone has “friended” you doesn’t mean they see everything you post to Facebook.

No, you cannot. We are able to provide an affordable yet powerful product by pre-setting the data points for an entire industry and then allowing companies within that industry to use those pre-sets without fuss.

Sure you can! Go for it.

Well, that’s a little off topic, but since you asked: he or she would be your first cousin once removed.
Nope. We amplify only what YOU post. We don’t touch your stuff.
Buzz Frenzy requests standard Facebook ”Page Advertiser” access to your company Facebook page (from Facebook). Facebook notifies you of the request and once you approve it we (you and Buzz Frenzy) are up and running.
No. Buzz Frenzy runs on its own ads account for your page.
Once you approve Facebook’s request to allow Buzz Frenzy to amplify your posts, it will take typically 24 hours before everything kicks in system wide.

Often, but not too often. What you want to do is be the interesting person at a cocktail party that everyone wants to talk to. You do not want to be the person on a street corner with a bullhorn that everyone tries to avoid. A good 2 to 3 posts per week will give you plenty of honey for your money.

Once you buzz a post, it will typically continue buzzing for 24 hours. Facebook likes the information to be rather current. Buzzing longer tends to be a waste of money.
Your post will start buzzing somewhere between immediately and a few hours.

The answer to that is a little longer than can be answered here. It’s best if you go to our About Us page.

Wow, you’re really all over the map here. Um… It is a relation in geometry of the three sides of a right triangle. It states that the square of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.

Post to Facebook like normal and add your #Buzztag.

It’s that simple. We’ll take care of the rest.

TIPS & TRICKS

The little things that work so well.

Buzz Frenzy is incredibly easy to use. Simply add your personalized hashtag (your #Buzztag) to any of your posts and BOOM your post will be buzzing. To get even more bang for your buck (or honey for your money), follow these best practices when creating your posts.

BUZZ WHAT’S WORTHY
Use Buzz Frenzy when you have something specific you want to accomplish: a sale or an event for example. The more you use Buzz Frenzy the better your overall engagement will be. Buzz Frenzy will amplify any post you tell it to. It is a powerful tool. It is best not to waste it on the mundane.
BE TIMELY

Facebook likes information to be ”present”, meaning they prefer new stuff to old stuff. Your post will Buzz for 24 hours. It may live on as people continue to like, comment, or share it, but that isn’t guaranteed. Know that everything on Facebook is fleeting by design (including Buzz).

All that being said, when you want to Buzz something, Buzz it when you want people to see it.

Buzzing happens (almost) immediately – Whenever you add your #Buzztag to a post, it will be amplified within the hour. If you buzz at 2am, it will start buzzing by 3am. If you buzz at 8am it will be buzzing by 9am.

JUST ENOUGH

You should Buzz often, but not too often. What you want to do is be the interesting person at a cocktail party that everyone wants to talk to. You do not want to be the person on a street corner with a bullhorn that everyone tries to avoid.

You have a set amount of money to use each month that gets rationed out per post. If you Buzz too often, your posts won’t have as much reach. A good 2 to 3 posts per week will give you plenty of honey for your money.

PICTURES

A picture is worth a thousand words, unless it is a picture of a thousand words, then Facebook won’t allow it. Pictures with too many words on them are frowned on. How many words are too many? Well, it’s probably best to let Facebook explain it: CLICK HERE

They also have a fancy schmancy tool to help you figure it out. Your best bet, though, is to not use pictures where words are the primary subject.

What does work? Pictures of people. We humans respond well to other humans. Smiling humans are even better. And, rather counterintuitively, women will look at pictures of women first and men will look at men. Keep that in mind if you are trying to drive a certain audience to a post.

Also, people respond well to kittens and puppies. But if you put a picture of a kitten up, it better take you to a site about kittens. Anything less makes people upset.

More than anything else, though, pictures have a huge impact on engagement. It is always better to include a picture than not.

AVOID THE UDES
Facebook reviews every post you try to buzz (it’s not you, they do it to everybody), so you need to follow their rules. Don’t try to buzz anything lude, crude, nude, or rude (the “Udes”), so that means no dirty words, nudity, or hateful messages. Now, what you might find perfectly acceptable might still anger the Facebook gods, so keep it clean. Again, it’s probably best to let Facebook explain it: CLICK HERE.
A RISING TIDE LIFTS ALL BOATS

Organic (Free) reach is what we are all trying to achieve.

You will notice that, when you Buzz something, as your paid (Buzzed) reach grows so will your organic (Free) reach. This is normal and to be expected, and a wonderful phenomenon of Buzzed posts. The more people who like, share, and comment on your posts – whether paid or organic – the more they will drive organic traffic to your post.

Also, you may notice your traffic will grow the longer you Buzz. This is also normal. People typically need to be exposed to advertising several times before they act on it. As people see your posts more often, the more inclined they will be to engage with your business.
