The BuzzStream Alternative that Simplifies Link Building

Reason 1

Unlike BuzzStream, Respona simplifies link outreach into just 4 steps:

Save hours every week by increasing the efficiency of your link building strategy, while still personalizing each pitch.

Create a drip campaign with automated variables and follow-ups.
Automate finding contact information for bloggers, journalists, and other content collaborators.
Hyper-personalize your pitches with AI and connect with contacts via social media.

Reason 2

Connect with the right authors through automation.

There are two things that make or break outreach. 1 - Your pitch. 2 - Valid contact information. Stop settling for anything less than real-time email verification. With Respona, you can:

  • Increase delivery rates
  • Minimize bounced emails
  • Earn more replies

BuzzStream only allows manual prospecting. With Respona, you can have automations find valid emails for you or stick to manual prospecting if preferred.
