    BuzzHustle

    Business Spotlight of the Week

    April 9, 2018

    BuzzHustle Digital Marketing steps into the Bonham Chamber of Commerce member spotlight this week. Begun in 2015, Buzz Hustle is owned and operated solely by Sarah Selvarengaraju, who is located in Mckinney, but has local ties to Fannin County. 

    Digital marketing is an umbrella term for all online marketing efforts which includes search engine optimization, online advertising, social media, email, and websites to connect with their current and prospective customers. “My heart,” said Sarah, “is for the Mom and Pop businesses putting food on their tables with the profits from last month. I want to help them connect with their audience where their audience lives – online. It isn’t a question of if they should be online anymore, it is where to be and how to reach their ideal customer. That customer is the difference between having enough for a child’s college fund, or being behind on the mortgage. It matters to me because it matters to them.”

    BuzzHustle specializes in teaching business owners how to effectively reach customers without them feeling forced to hire someone. Marketing online is about more than having a website and posting on social media, it is about telling the company’s story day in and day out.  However, if you need help taking care of less personal tasks like advertising, search engine optimization, or reputation management, Sarah would love to help with that!

    Spotlight Special: A full 82 percent of U.S. adults rely on reviews before making a purchase.  If you need help getting more reviews for your business, then this special is PERFECT for you!  This week only, you can get improved ratings and more exposure online via customer reviews for $50/mo.  Email Sarah@BuzzHustle.com to sign up or ask more questions about the service! If you would like to contact Sarah at BuzzHustle you can check out her website at www.BuzzHustle.com or follow her on Instagram at @SarahSelvarengaraju.

    Despite being an online business, BuzzHustle has a real presence in our community. In the past year, Sarah has actively helped the online exposure for local events, including our Christmas Parade. She is looking to expand that work into volunteering needed services to local nonprofit organizations, and wants to keep discovering where she best fits in our community. BuzzHustle recently hosted a local lunch and learn with the Chamber on some digital marketing basics.

    The Chamber thanks BuzzHustle for their membership. We look forward to serving BuzzHustle for many years to come.
