Where did our idea come from?
Everyday hundreds and thousands of pieces of UGC is created in the form of social content, blogs, or reviews. All these types of content have the potential to change the way consumers shop. They can discover new products, they can research about products, and they can share their experiences with products by creating content on social media. Consumers trust UGC more than any other type of media content. While there are tons of UGC online, there is no efficient or effective solution to easily connect consumers to the products they wish to purchase from UGC. This is because creators have no reason to include product information in their content and consumers are stuck in the same purchasing behavior shopping from the same sites they are accustomed to. We made BUZZi to resolve this by motivating creators to share product information in their content and providing an easy solution for consumers to purchase products from a creator’s post.
What is BUZZi?
BUZZi is a reward based UGC to commerce platform allowing creators to share their product experiences and consumers to purchase products through UGC from the sites they normally would purchase from.
Key features of BUZZi
Similar to other Steem based applications and websites we will reward creators with Steem for any engagement on their posts. Since UGC commerce is an integral part of our service, we will also reward creators for any product sales generated from their post.
We want to make it easy for creators to provide honest product reviews to help our community members find the right product for them. BUZZi has made it simple to rate the quality of the product, the price, and add pros/cons just by answering a few questions with a tap or a swipe. Based on user ratings, we will create a BUZZi Score that will represent the cost performance value of the product, making it easy for our community members to decide which products are worth purchasing.
Our Discover section is made for users to find the most trusted and valuable products used by the BUZZi community. Users will be able to see the top products and top creators allowing them to know who the product experts are and which products are being used the most by BUZZi members. We will also recommend products from members with the same interests.
Easily connect with community members that have the same interests as you. Follow members to see which products they are using and connect with them to ask questions, share stories, and give advice. We believe in a strong community of users being a central part to the success of BUZZi.
BUZZi Launch Plans
BUZZi will first launch with BUZZi Kids, allowing members to share their stories and product reviews for Baby and Kids products. Future categories will include Tech, Beauty, Fashion, and Home & Living.
