Founder of the Goodbuzz Network: http://www.goodbuzz.org
16 years ago, in 1994, I traded my basic food allowance to pay for my first class in computers while studying art and philosophy at university. I became obsessively passionate about the Internet, and created with friends one of the first Togo news portal on the Internet in 1995.
In 1993, when I was forced to walk 30km a day to go to school, I discovered a formula that completely changed my life. (The full story is here: http://bit.ly/ez7kPS).
Unstoppable, my passion for the Internet coupled with the life success formula Iâ€™ve discovered, gave birth to my startup product: The Goodbuzz Network.
Goodbuzz is a place where everyone can post his events and activities promotions, and taps into a free peer referral network to virally spread his message to buyers.
Members recommend each other events for free using different channels available: emailing, social medias (Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Myspace, etc.), blog, posters, flyers, sms, etc.
When things work out well, itâ€™s like getting the Super Bowl spotlight on your business for free.
The value of the program is that it makes it easier for people to ask and receive help to promote their events.
Goodbuzz.org is young and small, but it has a good potential.
