Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 6, 2008
Buzz Corps, Inc. announced today the formation of the Influencers Network (In Network), a free resource designed to bring together community influencers of every stripe. Aside from giving community leaders a place to share their expertise and learn from one another, the IN Network provides tried-and-tested marketing, sales and business expertise from the principals at Buzz Corps. In Network members enjoy access to best practices in search engine optimization, sales and marketing best practices, building and expanding an audience and effectively contributing to and drawing on efforts of their peers.
"We're doing this because bloggers are experts in blogging about their subject, not marketing," Buzz Corps founder Chris Aarons said. "They provide a great service to their readers and to the community at large, and we want to support them in any way we can. Influential bloggers work extremely hard to share their passion with us. Why shouldn't they also collaborate to make one another better at what they're already doing? And, if we can help them by providing them our own marketing expertise and access to a broad range of other specialists and subject-matter experts, then that's what we'll do."
Even before Buzz Corps officially announced its latest endeavor, IN Network immediately signed fifty inaugural members. "What we're doing has never been done before. We're offering influential bloggers everything in our communications arsenal-- tailored training, marketing consulting, business planning and more," Buzz Corps' Nick White added. "Whether through their own collective capabilities or those of Buzz Corps and its partners and associates, community influencers can now join the In Network, make their own contribution and avail themselves of the same benefits as our clients."
Andru Edwards of Gearlive.com agrees: "In Network is a one-of-a-kind resource which allows influential bloggers to really grow business and connect. Buzz Corps is at the forefront of word-of-mouth marketing, and as a member of In Network I get the advantage of their incredible breadth of knowledge and contacts. It's great for me, and it's even better for the community."
As for Buzz Corps, Inc., the start-up word-of-mouth marketing group has made a big splash with innovative methodologies for reaching out to the community. Aarons believes In Network was the next logical step in meeting the needs of influential bloggers.
"Becoming a member of the In Network means you'll get free access to great resources to help grow their sites and marketing them more effectively. Members can learn from their peers while sharing their own experiences," Aarons said. "The bottom line is that membership in the In Network is all about giving back and sharing expertise. As the community benefits, we all use readers and supporters benefit."
