Social Media Marketing for Small Businesses

My experience using ZZatem and ZZFanZ

I know what you’re thinking. Another social media platform is the last thing you need, but hear me out. I’ve been using ZZatem as a secondary platform for a little while now and I love it! It’s been particularly good for my blogs. Between my website and my LinkedIn newsletter, I get around 100 readers – 150 on a good week. On ZZatem, my weakest blog got 63 views, and my best one got 578 views!

5 reasons I love ZZatem

  1. It’s not popular. Although this means that your target audience might not be there yet, and it’s hard to say who is using it, it also means you don’t have to shout over the noise to be heard. I can see potential in the platform, so by growing now, I won’t have to shout so loud when it does become popular.
  2. It’s a fantastic secondary platform. I haven’t created any content specifically for ZZatem, it’s all content that I’ve created anyway for my main platforms.
  3. It’s a new platform. I love new platforms because we, as users, get to help mould them into what we want them to feel like.
  4. You get rewarded for being active. You earn points, called Zzeums, for liking posts, commenting on posts, creating new posts and creating new blogs. These Zzeums can be spent to create ads on the platform – and yes, I’ve had a few website visits from those ads! Apparently, these Zzeums will be able to be spent on more things in the future too. At the moment, I’m making way more Zzeums than I can spend.
  5. They’ve got a side platform called ZZFanZ. I’ll go into more details below…

ZZatem might not be right for you, and that’s ok, but if you do want to check it out, please sign up using my referral link. That’ll give me 250 Zzeums! Sign up here.

What is ZZFanZ?

It’s a space where you can get paid for your content.

You can choose to have a paid or free profile. A paid profile means that people have to pay to unlock your profile. On a free profile, you can choose to lock individual posts. I’ve got a free profile. So, on mine, I’ll be uploading my free support but I’ll also be posting some easy-to-follow step-by-step guides that you can unlock for $5 each. Yes, the platform currently only works with dollars, but it works at less than £4. By following me, you’ll get an email notification every time I post a new guide (so once a month). That locked content can be a video (like mine), a photo or even a PDF.

If ZZFanZ sounds like exactly the sort of space you’ve been looking for, I’ve got another referral link for you. This time, I’d get rewarded when you start earning. Sign-up here.

If you’d like to follow me on ZZFanZ and check out those guides, have a nosey here.

Thanks for reading! I share a blog like this one every other Tuesday, and if you feel like they help your social media presence, and more importantly, your business – then please consider leaving a tip.

Every time this tip jar reaches £15, I’ll run a giveaway on social media so a small business can access my membership group for two months.
