The best way to get started in BuzzStream is to setup the basics. From there you can customize your account to match your specific needs.
Setup The Basics:
Use the Buzzmarker to bookmark news stories, blog posts, and Tweets by influencers you want to record in BuzzStream. We help you find their contact information, social profiles, and metrics!
When you add a link or an article, we'll check for backlinks to your websites. Backlinks are critical because they are the biggest factor search engines use for ranking sites.
You can keep track of the status of your backlinks over time using our backlink checker tool. BuzzStream's checks include:
- Is the link still there and is it going to the right page?
- Does the anchor text match what you wanted?
- Is it a nofollow link?
- How many other links are on the page?
Connect your email to BuzzStream to keep track of all your conversations with your contacts
BuzzStream will help you keep track of Twitter conversations you're having with your contacts. Best of all, we do it automatically, so you don't have to think about it.
You can share contacts, assign follow-ups, and share contact history among everyone on your team. We suggest you include your PR team, Marcomm, Product Management, Customer Service, and any organization who may identify or engage with influencers.
Now Customize the your account:
Projects are a great way to organize Contacts and still share the full contact details and history of the contact with your team if they happen to be in other projects. Everybody con see who did what and when. If you're an agency working on behalf of multiple clients or you work for for one company internally managing activities for multiple domains and campaigns then you'll want to use projects.
Do you have specific data or information you need to track that BuzzStream doesn't have a field for? No worries. You can customize your BuzzStream account and add custom fields with the label you want. Custom fields can be dropdowns, check boxes, text fields or number fields.
