NextBee's word of mouth marketing platform is built by analyzing tools and interface components needed for successful word of mouth marketing campaigns. Our founding team has spent years marketing both enterprise and consumer products, and most recently had the fortune to work in the trenches of Web 2.0 world when they marketed their last venture, GetVendors (acquired by MatchPoint - a division of Connexus Corp).
NextBee's business started as a solution rather than a formal business plan. While brainstorming ideas for web startups and talking with our fellow Silicon Valley entrepreneurs we realized that all these different ideas and business plans, although having different targeted audiences as well as different products, shared similar marketing tactics. We decided to get a head start on developing the marketing tools while formalizing the business idea. During the course, we realized what we were building as a solution for ourselves will be useful for great many businesses - not just start ups. We had stumbled upon our next adventure!
We had the product and we had the marketing structure ready - we just formalized the business model and NextBee was born. Thus, from day one, this platform was built with the end solutions in mind. During this transformation (from a stand alone solution to platform), we did not change the core product features or the type of campaigns we wanted our platform to support but only expanded the scope of a few modules and got serious about usability. We plan to continually enhance our platform based on the campaign needs of our clients.
|Focus on Community and Simplicity
Although our solution is backed by smart algorithms and scalable infrastructure, our focus has always been on the community and simplicity of our solution. We will go out of our way to make sure the campaigns of our business community members are successful, and that every one of the users, referral recipients, and social media influencers absolutely feels delighted to be part of our campaigns.
We plan to embrace every initiative from OpenSocial to Data Portability with open arms and are committed to integrate with all other platform providers. We do offer structured packages of our program but if you need special settings or our pricing is too onerous on you then please let us know.
NextBee is not focused on developing automated algorithms to get most of the remnant inventory or link bait schemes. We strive hard to engage our community members and enjoy nothing more than the privilege of having strong trusting relationships with them. We enjoy working with clients who share the same vision!
