GoodBuzz is a place for advertisers to buy media from people (individuals).
Advertisers post their advertisement and deposit a tip for people who happen to like what they are doing to spread their message to friends and followers (on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, or by email).
The tip is an amount of money for the people who spread the advertisers’ campaign. At the end of the campaign, the tip is split between these people relatively to the leads they've generated.
It’s easier to understand Goodbuzz with the following step by step explanation:
1. You need help to promote an event or a new product, you go to Goodbuzz to create an advertisement for it.
2. Then, you deposit a tip, like in a restaurant or a bar, for people who happen to like what you are doing, and will share your advertisement with their friends and contacts on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin or by email. Let say you deposit $100 tip for your supporters.
3. Your advertisement will be displayed on GoodBuzz like here: goodbuzz.net/archive/gb2demo/demo/promotion1.html
4. People will visit your advertisement page on GoodBuzz and start sharing it with their friends and contacts. You could check in real time how many people are sharing your promotion: goodbuzz.net/archive/gb2demo/demo/statistics-my-promotions.html
5. At the end of the campaign (maximum 1 month), the tip you left ($100) is distributed to all the people who spread your message. The Goodbuzz software tracks and calculates everything automatically.
6. In the end, you are happy because you have reached more people and it is less stress to promote your events and products in the future.
In "pay per post", "pay per click" or "sponsored tweet" systems, advertisers results depend on how much money they have. In GoodBuzz model, your result doesn't depend on how much money you have. For example, one advertiser can offer $50 tip and receive 300 leads, and another advertiser will leave the same amount of tip and receive 2000 leads, simply because more people like what he or she is doing.
Also, regardless of the number of leads received the tip will be shared at the end of the campaign. An advertiser who leaves a tip for his or her supporters never knows how many leads he or she will receive at the end of the campaign, because no one knows in advance how many supporters a promotion will have, and how many leads each supporter will generate.
Additionally, a supporter is not paid X dollars to share a campaign or Y dollars per click on link. A supporter never knows how much tip he or she will receive before the end of a campaign, because the tip left by an advertiser will be split between all supporters, and no one knows in advance how many supporters a promotion will have, and how many leads each supporter will generate.
"Doing business without advertising is like winking at a girl in the dark. You know what you are doing, but nobody else does." said Stuart Henderson.
All businesses need promotion to survive, however, not all businesses have the deep pocket to pay the high cost of advertising. The "tipping" idea has been introduced as a way for small advertisers to thank people who are supporting them.
An advertiser will leave only the amount of tip he or she could afford, and the amount of tip he offers doesn't limit the number of support or leads he or she will receive.

An advertiser is a person or a company who creates a promotion and leaves a tip in advance for the people who will support his campaign by sharing it on social medias or by email.
A supporter is a person who like what an advertiser is doing and share it using one or several of the social medias and emailing tools available. At the end of the campaign, he will be entered into the campaign supporters pool to share in the tip left by the advertiser.
Once a promotion is published it's not allowed to change it, in order to protect advertisers and supporters. However an advertiser could cancel or republish a promotion.
If an advertiser cancels a promotion, the tip will nevertheless be distributed to the supporters, even if there is only one lead or one supporter. The advertiser will be refunded only if the promotion has not received any support yet. If an advertiser repost or republish a promotion, it is considered as a new promotion and the advertiser has to add a new tip.
Yes. An advertiser can limit his or her supporters group to only people he or she has invited, his followers or people in a specific network.
Yes. However you'll not be included into the promotion's supporters list, and you won't share in the tip you've left.
There are many possible reasons why a promotion won't receive a lot of support. The lack of support may depend what you are promoting, how your message is worded, the illustrations you choose, etc.

Special offers, discounts, deals, coupons, good causes, original, fun, entertaining, educational or exotics things work very well. etc. Avoid corporate verbiage. Engage directly people with simple words.
Ask people to share your promotion. Ask for it in your promotion page, and ask for it by email or tweet.

A tip is the amount of money an advertiser left in Goodbuzz to be shared by people who supported his campaign.
The tip is shared among people how have helped the advertiser spread his or her message. Each person who helped the advertiser is called a supporter. Each supporter receive a part of the tip depend on how many leads he or she has generated. However, 10% of the tip is shared like bonus by the top 10 supporters of any promotion.
When a tip is left, 10% of the total amount is reserved to be shared by the top 10 supporters of a promotion. At the end of the campaign, 90% of the tip is shared between all supporters depend on the number of leads they generated and 10% of the tip is shared equally as a bonus package by the Top 10 supporters.
A lead is a combination of two basic things: a unique view of the campaign and a unique source of click on any link inside the promotion content. More specifically, 1 lead = 1 view + 1 click. However a view represent only 20% of the lead and a click represent 80% of the value of the lead.
The TpL or the Tip per Lead is the metric we use to distribute the tip among a promotion supporters. A promotion TpL evolve during time.
Minimum tip is $50. You can choose the amount of tip you want to leave, and you can increase your tip at any time.
When a supporter shares a promotion on Facebook, on twitter or by email, his or here contacts, followers, and friends will eventually follow the link in the message and view the promotion on GoodBuzz.
If 10 of his or her contacts, followers and friends visit the initial promotion, this will result in 10 views for this initial promotion. If among these 10 visitors 6 clicks on any link inside the displayed promotion, this will results in a total of 10 views + 6 clicks = 8 leads for the initial campaign.
The leads calculation doesn't stop there. If these 10 contacts, followers, and friends visit 5 other promotions and 6 of them clicked on a link inside the promotion, this will results in a total of 50 views + 30 clicks = 34 leads. The total number of leads that will be attributed to this supporter for the visit of his 10 contacts, followers, and friends is 8 + 34 = 42. If the average TpL is $0,5, the supporter earnings will equal= $21 for sharing one promotion.
Cookies are kept for 6 months to track all actions of the supporter's contacts, followers, and friends to attribute the leads to him. However, if your contacts become supporters themselves, we will need to stop attributing their actions to you, because GoodBuzz doesn't operate as a multilevel marketing scheme. Also, if the cookies are removed, we won't be able to attribute the actions to you, unfortunately.
When I earn tips, how soon it is reflected in my account?
Your earned tips are automatically calculated and displayed in your account. However, you can redeem or cash out your earned tips only a the end of the promotions. It's only at the end of a campaign that we know the final TpL to calculate how much tips you'll receive.
All your earned tips are displayed in your account in this way: the part you can cash out immediately, and the part to be confirmed.
The tips are distributed automatically at the end of the promotions to all supporters. The maximum duration of a promotion is 1 month. The advertiser could repost the same promotion if he wish, however he or she will need to add a new tip.
No. Supporters and advertisers could see the evolution of a promotion TpL in real time. A marketplace board shows real time information about all promotions TpL. An advertiser could decide to add more tip if the TpL become too low.
No. It's up to the advertiser to monitor the performance of his or her campaign, and add more tip if he or she judges so.
First, an advertiser can't decrease or cut the tip once the promotion has been started.
He or she could cancel a promotion at any time, however he or she will not be refunded, and the tip will be distributed automatically to all the campaign supporters. Even if there is only one supporter, he will receive all the tip left in the basket. If there is no supporter, the tip is then refunded to the advertiser.
At the end of each month, GoodBuzz automatically calculate and verify the total amount of tip a supporter has earned on finished campaigns during the past month. If earned tips amount reaches $50, the supporter can cash out with paypal.
Yes. You can cash out your tips and give them to a local charity yourself, or you can choose inside your account a list of charities and we will transfer the money to them. You'll receive a confirmation message from the charity.

We use several technics and sources to track a promotion performance. We display some vanity metrics like number of impressions, but the main things we track are:
1. the number of share: how many people liked your promotion and shared it
2. number of view or unique visitors
3. number of clicks on links inside your promotion
4. number of channels used to share your promotions
The main information recorded about the promotion is displayed on the statistics page.
Here is a complete list of all the tools and tactics we use to fight people who want to hijack and fraud the game.

It's not worth engaging in fraudulent activities, because soon or later we catch fraudsters, and they lose all their tips.
