An amazing social media employee advocacy platform developed and supported by an incredible team

What do you like best?

The Bambu platform offers a simple way for our team to share social media content and engage with their followers. The ease of use makes it very straightforward to onboard new users and maintain ongoing momentum internally. And best of all, the Bambu team is amazing! Every person I have engaged with has been knowledgeable and has gone out of his/her way to assist. They have ensured our success with the product.

What do you dislike?

The features and functionality continue to evolve which only serves to strengthen Bambu's offering over time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The other product we evaluated had lots of bells and whistles but ultimately, we loved both the ease of use of Bambu and the team. They really helped us kick things off and remain committed to our success.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Bambu enables our employees to easily get more engaged on social media and really become thought leaders in their own right. Our content is shared more frequently and new employees are asking for training and logins!

Bambu makes content sharing a breeze!

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to curate content. The variety of ways that we can share is also a big highlight for me. I think my favorite thing is being able to upload ReTweet links so our employees can easily share tweets with the click of a button.

What do you dislike?

I wish we could share videos. I think that is really the only major content type that is not supported at this time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Bambu is very useful if you want to ensure your employees are sharing the best content from your company at any given time. I have been blown away with the superior customer service from our rep and their support team to any bugs are addressed quickly and that we have all the tools we need to make using this product a massive success for our business.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Bambu has helped us connect with our employees to utilize their social networks to increase our corporate presence- all in a fun, convenient way. And fun and convenience are important when your average employee age is 24.

Bambu did more than we ever dreamed it could for our business

What do you like best?

Ease of use, the clean user experience, and how quickly you can roll Bambu out in an organization.

What do you dislike?

I would love to see an Instagram integration. So more of a suggestion than a dislike. There is really nothing I dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sign your agreement and get started with Bambu immediately! We saw an ROI in three months when comparing the price to paid social media placement with traditional native advertising outlets and PPC.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Bambu allowed our sales team to become active on social media with on-brand messages. Previously they did not have the time and did not feel comfortable sharing anything on social. It also allowed us to bring in other business units and start breaking down barriers within our organization at a tactical level that we had previously been unable to do. The information sharing that is now going on between department because of Bambu is credible and the social media impression power keeps growing at a pace that is faster than we could ever have ever accomplished on our own.

Bambu: An Employee Advocacy Dream

What do you like best?

The Bambu platform is extremely clean and sleek. Our teams needed very minimal training to feel comfortable with the tool because it is so intuitive and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

The only part of Bambu that is somewhat challenging is that it's difficult to switch between and admin role and user role. It would be great to be logged in as a manager, but be able to switch to a "member" view to see what our users see.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The team at Bambu is one of the best I've encountered in the social space. I've worked with a lot of companies, but the Bambu team is responsive, helpful and knowledgeable. They also take suggestions very seriously! We've already seen updates made based off of suggestions we've made.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest thing we've solved is simplifying our employee engagement program. Bambu gives our employees confidence in the content they're posting and makes them feel more comfortable talking about our company on social media.

An amazing tool to enable your whole company as thought leaders.

What do you like best?

It gets our content in front of our current or potential customers by using the social media account our employees already have. Through this we increase the exposure of our curated content with every Bambu share.

What do you dislike?

We would like more customized reporting so we can pull data the way we would like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Work closely with your Bambu contacts to learn tips and tricks on using the system as well as getting buy-in from leadership and employees.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Bambu allows us to get our custom marketing content in front of more potential customers. It also enables our sales staff to become thought leaders in our industry without working harder to do so. We have seen massive impression increases on the 3 major social media platforms that we could not achieve with our business accounts alone. Our blog visits have also increased using Bambu due to the sharing of that content.

Bambu removes the fourth wall of social media.

What do you like best?

My favorite thing about Bambu is that it allows us to connect and share brand messages consumer to consumer through the employee advocacy platform. This capability removes the fourth wall in social media communication. While our messages remain the same, the initial touch point is more familiar.

What do you dislike?

There isn't a lot that we dislike about Bambu. If there's one thing I could change it would be the ability to use custom messaging in the weekly content newsletter. Other than that, everything is seamless in the Bambu platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Bambu is a simple way to get your employees engaged in company messaging. Likewise, it helps employees by creating tailored content to help them curate their own social platforms.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Bambu we are building trust with potential customers through our own employees. Likewise, we use the platform to help our audience reach a broader range of people and businesses.
