WithFacebook fans and overTwitter followers, Buzzfeed relies highly on social media to promote its articles, which anyone can write, including you. As you have heard many times, article writing is a great way to promote your small business, so I am going to give you my own example of how I am using it. I chose to write an article for Buzzfeed because it is so widely read 60 million monthly readers and it accepts third party articles.
She helped BuzzFeed quintuple traffic in two years. The secrets behind how she became one of the most important and beloved BuzzFeeders. She fled after the dot-com boom's implosion--a particularly messy moment for her, since she had to lay off many friends as her company, Concrete Media, went down in flames in I want to quit and move to France and eat cheese and drink wine.
I want to learn French and sit out this Internet recession. From through she ran its digital arm--and did so quite profitably, a rare feat for a media site in the aughts.
And with that, she got herself fired. I never set out to run a big media organization. I never meant to live in France for the rest of my life," Nguyen says. This c'est la vie, let's move on attitude works well at Nguyen's current employer, BuzzFeed, where she first arrived in the summer of So does her zest for experimentation.
In fact, it works really, really well.
BuzzFeed is famous not just for its quizzes and listicles, but also for pioneering a data-driven approach to Web content, and the more well-known BuzzFeeders are quick to point out exactly how crucial a role Nguyen plays there as its vice-president of growth and data. Unique monthly visitors more than quintupled, from 28 million to million, in the two years she's been with the company.
Her work has helped BuzzFeed's editorial team carve out new coverage areas, and nurture them to significant traction through social-media and in-site technology. You'd think she'd have made big waves by driving so much change in her short tenure. In a newsroom, bringing in someone whose job isn't strictly editorial--but whose success depends on instituting changes through editorial--can be a risky proposition.
Journalists trust me on this can be very possessive of their craft, especially when business-side executives start moseying around their part of the office. But editors at BuzzFeed say they liked working with Nguyen from day one, thanks to her editorial experience and her clear desire to help them do their jobs more efficiently.
She also possesses a unique set of personality traits that seem to have helped her along the way, not least of which is her appealing sense of curiosity. What information do you think would be interesting to have to think about your problem? For instance, Nguyen says she decided to try to boost BuzzFeed's lackluster weekend traffic by first approaching an editorial director and asking about her current strategy for socially promoting existing content, because she recognized the site being shorter-staffed on the weekends necessitated such an approach.
We can write a piece of code that sends you, on Fridays, according to our analysis, the top 20 posts we should be promoting,'" Nguyen recalls telling the editor. And here she is quick to add she firmly believes that data should not determine one's editorial strategy, but rather inform one's decision.
Nguyen is also charged with overseeing growth in BuzzFeed's international sites, boosting its mobile traffic, and overseeing the algorithm the main BuzzFeed site uses to trigger certain content-placement.
Pinterest has surged from barely being a traffic referrer when Nguyen was brought on, to now being the site's second-largest social-traffic driver.
And the Life group is growing--according to a company spokeswoman, it is seeking to hire roughly 25 new editorial staffers. BuzzFeed's growth hasn't come without strain. Earlier this summer, I asked Peretti whether the company planned on taking another round of venture-capital funding, and gave a negative, with only a little wiggle room.
It may also help fund future acquisitions, according to The New York Times. Another newly announced change to the company is that it's investing in content that's "distributed," meaning that it's created by the BuzzFeed team, but isn't originating on the BuzzFeed Site.
This can entail use of communications and social apps--including SnapChat, Instagram, and Vine--to transmit content to fans. That investment--which will require hiring 20 people--too, is based on research by Nguyen and her team.
In a digital media world stuffed with large personalities and self-promoters, Nguyen's disarmingly ego-free approach is readily apparent in conversation. She's quick to point out that some of her editorial ideas are "probably really bad," admits that she can't say that all of her "experiments have worked" and referred to a very cool diagram she dubbed "the growth funnel" she made when starting to analyze BuzzFeed's traffic growth as "not, like, totally innovative.
Nguyen tweaked the email-share button, making it more prominent, accessible, and ubiquitous on mobile devices.
Within a week, she said, email shares rose by percent. A pretty smashing success, by any standard, but Nguyen's reaction? Using data properly is a constant stream of experiments and feedback. The human-learning of that is part of the culture that I think is probably the most difficult to replicate.
But when I ask Nguyen to tell me about her specific accomplishments as head of data at BuzzFeed, as someone who literally has "growth" in her title, whose team is behind numbers the company clearly wants to tout, she deflects the opportunity to take a victory lap.
