The technology and fusion of ideas to create new tools for public relations professional keeps getting better. BuzzStream, currently in private beta but far enough along to afford me a test drive, is a product to keep and eye on for public relations professionals, particularly those who handle media and blogger outreach. The web-based software is essentially a contact management system (think CRM for your journalists and bloggers) with several Web 2.0 additions that make it unbelievably useful.

How it works is almost ridiculously simple. Once you sign up, tell it your various information (including Twitter login and password) and drag the BuzzStream Media Bookmarklet to your browser’s bookmark toolbar, you’re ready to go. Visit a blog or media site. Click on the bookmarklet. A contact window pops up. The software scans the site and pulls the pertinent available contact information for that blogger or journalist, including email address, Twitter account and even URLs for contact forms. You can edit the information manually if the spiders don’t catch the right information or if you just want to be thorough with a manual search.

Hit save. That blogger is now in your system.

From BuzzStream, you click on the email address of the blogger. Your email software opens and you reach out with a pitch or introduction. The system blind carbon copies itself on the email and dumps it into a conversation history. (You also get the BCC email address in case you don’t originate the email from BuzzStream.) If the blogger replies, or even sends you an @ message or a direct message on Twitter (and @ message being a public tweet replying to you or mentioning your Twitter name), BuzzStream adds that communication to the conversation history.

What the platform enables is a documented trail of contact and conversation between you and that media outlet. I say media outlet because, while the software is likely being positioned as a blogger outreach tool, it works for traditional journalists as well.

There is similar functionality built in to work flow management tools like the one in Radian6, but for those wanting a contact management solution for media outreach specifically, BuzzStream, I think, will quickly become a solution of choice for PR pros.

While the software is in private BETA, the first 50 of you who click through below and sign up will get an invite to try the platform out. Special thanks to Paul May, BuzzStream’s CEO and co-founder for extending the opportunity for Social Media Explorer readers.

For those of you who aren’t quick enough to get in early, keep an eye on BuzzStream at http://www.buzzstream.com or follow their progress on Twitter at http://twitter.com/buzzstream .

If you are fortunate enough to get in and test the software, jump in the comments and tell us what you think, bugs you find and other thoughts on the good, bad and indifferent of the service.

And just to note, BuzzStream already has a linkbuilding system similar that is beyond private beta. I checked into it and it is an above-board, ethical approach to networking with like-minded bloggers and what-not to build links with one another. I’m not big into linkbuilding as a practice, but they do it honestly, which I admire.

May wasn’t certain about pricing because BuzzStream wants to get feedback from individuals and agencies to help determine a fair market value for the service. I’ve tested it with a series of bloggers I’m reaching out to for a client and would happily pay $40-50 a month if I were an individual consultant for the product. Agency or enterprise level groups that need more space, logins/users, etc., I would expect could pay anywhere from $150 to $500 a month depending upon the size and scope or need. I’m sure May will be watching the comments, so chime in and help determine what’s fair.

The comments are yours. What say you?

    Interesting article there is also another software app worth mentioning. I have just started to use a product called Pressvine, it allows me to search a list of uk journalists, send press releases, organise my image library and update my news page with a single click.

  • Jason– Great post. This product is a good one, intuitive, even. However, it reminds me very much of some of the high end products Vocus puts out that allows you to have advanced logs of everything you've done and said with a particular media contact. It seems that Buzz stream is good when you are developing a list organically yourself, but not when you are sending out huge volumes to new lists all the time. Still, I find it encouraging that it's available and doesn't cost a fortune. It's a very good alternative for those of us who don't have six figures to spend on media databases. You can get some of those high end tools for less, even if you have to work a little harder for it.

    This is a bit off subject, but I would love to know what you think about this…I recently saw a demo of Google Wave, an incredible new tool that puts all our communications platforms together into one organic program. It's really quite remarkable. Google unveiled it to 4,000 different developers, in hopes they will create some apps for it before it is released to the public later this year. I think it could potentially kill off some of the social media platforms. At the very least, I think it could change how we communicate with our contacts. What do you think of it? Google has an extensive site showing the developer preview. Check it out…http://wave.google.com

    Thanks for pointing me to this software and for the beta invite. Just downloaded and started playing with it. Very nice and I can certainly see how this could become a valuable web-based CRM tool for our outreach efforts.

  • Ah, I see – didn't notice there were two separate services. I clicked the “beta invite form” link on your blog and just went where it took me, which must have been on the linkbuilding side of things, not the BuzzStream for PR and Social media. Fratz! I hope it's not to late to get on the Beta for the BuzzStream PR/Social Media do-hickey.

  • Thanks for the comment. I think you're referring to their linkbuilding product. This one is new and separate, thought the interfaces and the principle remains the same … manage relevant contacts to build relationships, whether they are links or media/blogger contacts. Try it out and report back. We'd love to know what you think about it.

  • Jason, thanks for the thoughtful post. You really captured the essence of what we're working on at BuzzStream! As a blog that we look to for best practices on social media marketing and blogger relations, it's particularly gratifying to read this on Social Media Explorer.

    If you're at the IABC Conference and you're interested in learning more about what we're working on, I'll be there this afternoon. I'll be around the lobby and in the exhibit hall, so just come grab me. You can also reach me by e-mail or twitter. There's a picture of me on the BuzzStream website along with my contact info.

  • BuzzStream is definitely positioning the service as a linkbuilding tool and not a contacts relation tool, though I can definitely see why one might consider the service a media and blogger outreach tool first and foremost. It should be interesting to see how this works in an agency setting and it's sweet to get involved in a Beta test — thanks for passing the opportunity along.

    BuzzStream is definitely positioning the service as a linkbuilding tool and not a contacts relation tool, though I can definitely see why one might consider the service a media and blogger outreach tool first and foremost. It should be interesting to see how this works in an agency setting and it's sweet to get involved in a Beta test — thanks for passing the opportunity along.

    • We have two products – 'BuzzStream for PR and Social Media' and 'BuzzStream for Link Building'. The thing that ties the two together is the need to conduct outreach that's relevant, personalized and relationship-based.

    • Thanks for the comment. I think you're referring to their linkbuilding product. This one is new and separate, thought the interfaces and the principle remains the same … manage relevant contacts to build relationships, whether they are links or media/blogger contacts. Try it out and report back. We'd love to know what you think about it.

        Ah, I see – didn't notice there were two separate services. I clicked the “beta invite form” link on your blog and just went where it took me, which must have been on the linkbuilding side of things, not the BuzzStream for PR and Social media. Fratz! I hope it's not to late to get on the Beta for the BuzzStream PR/Social Media do-hickey.
