Zazoom LLC today announced that its popular online daily video series Buzz60
has been selected by YouTube as the "On the Rise" partner for November
2013 based on Buzz60's combination of exciting original content,
effective optimization strategies and strong community support.
Each month YouTube nominates four popular, promising channels as the
next YouTube sensation. The YouTube community is asked to vote for the
channel they would most like to see featured. An internal YouTube team
reviews the results and evaluates each channel against specific
performance criteria to determine the winner.
"The foundation of each Buzz60 episode comes from our unique combination
of journalism, great storytelling and timeliness. This recognition
highlights the hard work and commitment of the entire Zazoom team," said
Zazoom CEO Tim Minton. "We're thrilled Buzz60 content has captured
YouTube's attention and are incredibly thankful to our audience for
their passion and support."
Since January 2013, Buzz60's YouTube views have increased 115.7% to more
than 21,000 subscribers. As YouTube's newest "On The Rise" partner,
beginning Dec 2nd Buzz60 will be promoted across the YouTube
ecosystem including on YouTube watch pages (in the 'Featured' slot to
the right of the player and in the player itself), on the YouTube blog
and across its social media channels.

Buzz60 joins the ranks of previous "On The Rise" partners such as
motivational speaker, Paralympian and author Josh
Sundquist; the Stan
Winston School of Character Arts, which was awarded a People's Voice
Webby Award as the Best How-To/DIY Channel in 2013; and The
Dominic Show, which currently has 1.8 million subscribers.
Buzz60 was also recently recognized as "Best Daily Series" at the
inaugural Cynopsis Digital "Model D" Awards highlighting the most
innovative and creative work in online video content. Nominees in this
highly competitive category included industry stalwarts such as E!
("Live from E!"), Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc. ("Everyday Food
with Sarah Carey"), Bunim Murray Productions ("BRKDWN") and Scripps
Networks Interactive ("Food Network's "Bobby Flay Fit").
To celebrate its selection, Buzz60 will be holding an online video
stream for fans to engage directly with its team. Details on the video
stream may be found on its Google+
