Online marketing has trodden beyond the weekly newsletters and coupons long time back. Just as social networking is the current trend on the Internet now, so it is in the world of marketing. As we know, for most people Internet and Google means the same. So how could Google stay away from this new online trend? In case you are that one in a million who is still unaware of Buzz, it is the social networking tool launched by Google where users can share images, videos and links with their followers or with whom they follow.
Just like Twitter and Facebook, Buzz is also doing wonders for online business owners through its power to bring the vendors and buyers closer. Here are a few factors that enable Buzz to boost your business:
Find and follow your target audience

No time wasted to start a social network from scratch
In the case of social networking, especially one that is meant for online marketing, finding followers and establishing a network takes some time. In the case of Buzz there is no such issue as it is integrated with Gmail. Buzz automatically brings all your Gmail contacts in its own contact book and lets you follow your Gmail friends and acquaintances and at the same time make it easy for them also to find you too.
Liven up your customer relationship with Buzz conversations
Buzz lets you have lengthy conversations with your customers, thereby making it facilitating you to let them know what is happening in your business, answer their queries and reply to their comments. And even if a follower of a follower goes through these conversations it can attract the person to join you and become a potential customer.
Select and diversify your followers
As a business owner you are prone to have customers who are in different categories like premier, regular, etc. Buzz lets you share different information with these different customer categories. For example, suppose you have discount offers for the customers in the premier category, you can add the update for them alone.
Share links and videos
