Leaders in Content Marketing & Media

Peerless content experts. Cutting-edge distribution and analytics. Superior ROI results.



Whether you need to step up the branded content creation and distribution for your blog or app, launch a full-scale digital magazine, or create a content cradle around your website’s e-commerce experience,  we can customize our services to meet your needs.


We’ll listen carefully to determine your business needs and form an editorial, paid distribution, social media, SEO, testing and optimization strategy.  Buzzr’s broad range of services are reviewed and tailored to your specific needs – whether it’s branding, e-commerce, lead generation, display or native advertising, fundraising or something entirely novel.  We’ll recommend an editorial approach, such as a blog, newsletter, media site, digital magazine, or specialized e-commerce content template. Our strategy always includes integrating best-of-breed software solutions, including precise KPI and ROI measurement tools. 


We match your content needs with an editor experienced in the relevant subject matter, such as design, technology, fashion, performing arts or science. That editor, in turn, recruits and supervises freelancers from a large networks of writers and video producers. Our ranks include many leading editors, journalists and writers .  Buzzr uses advanced technology to do predictive analysis of topic and story selection, before the content is even assigned, by looking at how similar subjects performed as paid content. We can also provide performance analysis of organic content from competitors even if it wasn’t promoted as a paid campaign.  At the end of the day, though, it’s the expertise and creativity of our media veterans that gives Buzzr-created content its spark.


We work with a wide variety of vendors and software tools to get your content promotions in front of the ideal audience. Whether it’s micro-targeting of posts on Facebook or Instagram, or branding campaigns across leading publisher titles, we’re able to provide a deep reservoir of distribution options. Our experience with artificial intelligence vendors across multiple platforms has taught us the tremendous value of continuous testing of new publishers and promotions.


We’ll test hundreds of articles, videos, images, headlines and captions to find the best performers. Artificial intelligence enables micro-buys of these many content variations before more significant sums are spent on the “winners.” Tracking reports show the precise cost/benefit breakdown based on your KPIs (including monetization). As we learn what works for your content, the editorial becomes even more focused to meet your goals.
