Bumble’s Bizz App: The New Way for Business
Bumble’s Bizz, a women-focused dating app has now turned into a holy grail for marketers. Bumble launched this app last year to help specifically with networking and dating. Users can access features like checking each other users’ location, and seeing who is open to networking. Users that are interested in connecting can merely swipe right to start interacting.
All these features have turned into a gold mine for businesses looking to expand their reach into the market. Bizz is now an excellent platform for marketers to introduce and spread awareness of their businesses. Read on to see how marketers can use Bizz to market their products and services.
Bizz provides a laidback atmosphere for networking. Unlike LinkedIn where the air is brisk and intimidating, it is possible to bond to a deeper level with potential customers on Bizz. It is easier to spread the brand message and manage the reputation of your business on this networking application. Bizz’s features help to keep the journey to your products simple and straight to the point.
This is a practical approach to marketing. You can choose to visit your competitors’ pages and see what they are up to, or interact with your competitor’s customers just to see how they perceive your products.
Bizz enables marketers to be at the right place at the right time and get instant feedback on how customers interact with their products and services. On this platform, companies can positively steer conversations and convert their contacts into loyal customers.
By simply swiping, marketers can start interactions and keep customers engaged. This interactivity is vital in any sales process. Bizz applications make it easy to understand what customers want, their desires, their interests, and their fears. Through constant and timely conversations on Bizz, marketers can build a relationship of understanding and trust. From there the whole process of marketing is a walk in the park.
In every market, there are different customers with diverse needs and dissimilar buying potential. Segmentation helps to reach them and deliver products and services that best suits their needs. With Bizz, you can easily see the geographical location of your customers, their age, and occupation among other details.

Market segmentation according to demographics, such as location, age and class, will help you score hot leads that you can close in the nick of time.
Bizz is first a dating platform, then a networking and business application. This ‘dating’ aspect can be a big solution for businesses. Today marketing is more like courtship. Companies have to provide product knowledge that can excite customers and build trust.

Your only task is to convince them.The photo verification tool on Bizz also ensures that people are who they say they are.
Bizz makes it easier to follow up and close leads. After a marketer gets in touch with a prospective customer, proper follow up is needed to nurture and close the lead. On this application, marketers can slowly build relationships until a customer is willing to try a product or service. You also get to gauge the degree of interest in your product from the conversations you have with customers on this app.
Since Bizz is a social networking site akin to Linkedin it becomes easier to track your customer’s behaviour from their online activities. This helps to accurately target people with relevant products and services. Given that users on applications provide necessary contact information, you can expand your conversations via email or even telephone. After sending messages to potential customers you can request to meet in person those who responded positively.
