Our company is about sharing any type of story from a brand. We’re also a localized discovery platform for users to find local events, and an interesting story about a business, such as Starbucks launching a new flavor.

Today, brandbuddee announced the upcoming launch of its new social media platform that rewards influential advocates for sharing stories from their favorite brands. By partnering with brandbuddee, companies will benefit from gaining influential consumer advocacy via social media sites and consumers can win products and VIP rewards from the stories they share.
brandbuddee.com is a new social advertising platform built on the concept of “gift economy”. Participating brands have the opportunity to run word-of-mouth marketing campaigns to be shared by loyal customers and fans across any social media platform. First, the company creates a branded story or highlight about its products and services and includes a link to its website or social media page. From there, “brandbuddees” (fans/advocates) pick up the story and share it. Each time a friend or follower clicks the link, the brandbuddees earn a point. Once they earn a predetermined amount of points, they’re rewarded by the brand for their loyalty and advocacy. This process is currently free for both brands and their buddees.
What makes brandbuddee.com unique is the company’s philosophy which is centered around adding value to the social media sphere by requiring participating brands to share helpful information and high-quality content rather than blatant, self-serving ad campaigns that seem to tell consumers what to do rather engaging them with insightful material. The sharing of ideas and messages with this demographic through trusted and known peers is the key to successful advertising, a finding validated by those like The Nielson Global Consumer Survey that say 90 percent of consumers trust known peers while only 14 percent trust claims made by advertisers.
ABOUT BRANDBUDDEE For the first time, brandbuddee combines the viral potential of social media with the trusted authority of “word of mouth” referrals. Brand managers engage directly with their brands’ best customers and enlist this loyal, knowledgeable, trusted referral base as participants in their messaging and promotional campaigns. brandbuddee helps build sustainable, long-term relationships with loyal brand customers, increases loyalty and is currently free for brands and consumers.
