About BizBrag:

BizBrag is a social marketing application for small businesses that allows them to reach the same level of social coverage enjoyed by large organizations by working together with other small businesses.

The Building Blocks: Users create stand alone web pages called ‘Braggits’ which contain their news / deals / press releases / youtube videos etc. and these Braggits are instantly posted to their connected accounts. (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Tumblr, Blogger, WordPress, E-Mail Contacts) They are SEO friendly and ready to be shared!

The Power: BizBrag has created a social network called the BragForce that allows complimentary, local, or related businesses to instantly share each other’s news acrosss their networks. Mike’s Bike Shop and Jake’s Bike Adventures can connect to each other and share Braggits across their networks. This allows them to reach new customers, and to have interesting and relevant content created for their social accounts.

Here is a short introductory video about BizBrag:

    HopeJones72 – Thanks for the advice, we will try to figure out how to replace the video. I agree we absolutely should revamp our search feature, and a referral program is in the works!
    Feedback_provider – I’m not sure what you meant about the latest Braggits section. It isn’t meant to be descriptive, it’s meant to display the latest posted Braggits in newsfeed form a la foursquare.com or even Twitter or Facebook. How would you change that section to maintain the newsfeed format yet be more descriptive?
    As far as the information, this is something that we struggle with regularly. If you try to type in a whole lot people just don’t read it. That’s why we ended up producing the two videos. We are hoping that some people will try the platform and like it enough to tell their friends.
    The name is set, sorry! Thanks for the feedback.
    chriseveringham – Our designer will be pleased to know how much you like his logo! I know the sound quality on the videos could be improved, but we’re doing our best with a startup budget!
    The pricing question is something we’ve heard before, so we need to figure out how to improve that. The idea is that everyone pays the same price per account. The platform is slightly different for Franchise and Enterprise users because they are automatically connected with their parent company and the Braggits behave a little differently. We are trying to show that there are differences between the account types, but the price always remains the same per account.
    I hear you on the captcha thing to send comments. Unfortunately that is a necessary evil. If we don’t put that on there we get inundated with spam!
    Thank you for taking the time to give us all of that constructive advice, we’ll try to incorporate your ideas as well as we can.
    -Hunter Sherman
