I got a nice package of 3 Root candles for my latest Bzz campaign - Pinot Noir, Lemon Frosted Scone & Pumpkin Spice Latte...they all smell fantastic! I already lit Pumpkin Spice Latte – such a warm, yummy scent!  The candles are in a nice, simple jar without a big gaudy label.

BzzAgent–word of mouth marketing.

I love being a BzzAgent.  I have been one since 2005.  Since then I’ve taken part in over 50 campaigns!  If you’re not familiar with BzzAgent – as a member (it’s free to join!) I get to try products and services at no cost with samples and  coupons.  Most of the time they give me extra coupons to share (as some of my friends already know!)  After I’ve reviewed the product or service I give my honest opinion – with friends and also BzzAgent.com. 

In the 6+ years I’ve reviewed lots of  products/services after being given free samples/trials including these:

The Domino Project from Seth Godin, Marzetti Otria Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip, Silk, COVERGIRL 50th Anniversary, Carbonite, Elmer's Crafters', mark. body care that cares, AMEX Starwood Consumer Credit Card, CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion, LifeLock, ,Barely There CustomFlex Fit bras, Reinvented Dove Hair, COVERGIRL & Olay Simply Ageless, L’OrĂ©al Advanced Revitalift Deep-Set Wrinkle Repair, Children's Claritin, AfrinPureSea, Neutrogena Cosmetics, Boston Market Catering, Smucker's Uncrustables, Scrubbing Bubbles Action Scrubber, Back to Nature Nuts and Trail Mixes, 2008 AVEENO(R) POSITIVELY AGELESS(TM) Lifting & Firming, Canadian Club, Tropicana Pure Valencia, Horizon Organic Milk Plus DHA, Oust(R) Surface Disinfectant & Air Sanitizer, LISTERINE WHITENING Quick Dissolving, Sonicare UV Sanitizer, Mrs. Dash, TV Guide, Grey Poupon, Raid Disposable Yellow Jacket Trap, Coppertone, OFF!, Hillshire Farm Entree Salads, Atkins Advantage Bars, Aquapod, Gusto!, Storyville Coffee, Sonicare, Pledge Duster Plus, SmartBargains.com, November 17, Arby's Chicken Naturals, Fantastik OxyPower

My latest Bzz campaign is for Marzetti Otria Greek Yogurt Veggie Dips.  Coupons were mailed to me & redeemed for free product.  I tried the Cucumber Dill Feta Dip.  It’s delicious!  We eat lots of raw vegetables in our house – usually with ranch dip I make with low fat sour cream.  I really like the idea of a yogurt based dip – the kids eat fruity yogurt but I wasn’t sure if they’d like this dip. They did!  Even used it as a dip for their fish!  We will be trying the other flavors of Marzetti Otria Greek Yogurt Dip in the future!  I have a few extra $2 off coupons that expire at the end of June.  If you send me an email (cmcropper@sbcglobal.net) I’ll pop one in the mail to you so you can try this new product.  There are other flavors including Chipotle Cheese, Salsa Cilantro, Garden Herb Ranch and Spinach Artichoke.  I think I’m trying Salsa Cilantro next!

There are surveys to fill out – so that you can be matched up with campaigns that would interest you – and reports of any “bzzing” activity to be filed (on their website)  The whole point of this word of mouth campaign stuff is to not only try out the products, but talk about them, too!  That isn’t very hard – almost all of the products I’ve reviewed have been fantastic & I’m always willing to share things I love w/friends!  The coupons help, too!  The more sharing of information (bzzing) you do as well as surveys you take will get you more campaigns!  Bzzing can be done in person or online via Facebook & Twitter!  (See that info above – that was a Bzz!) Easy Peasy!

This is taken from an email that is sent to people I refer to BzzAgent:

As a BzzAgent, you'll get to:

  • Discover and try new products and services (often for free)
  • Spread sincere word of mouth about them
  • Have your opinions influence some of the biggest companies and brands around
  • If you'd like to receive those benefits, become an Agent today. Don't worry, BzzAgent respects its members' privacy and won't share your personal information or spam you.
    We're a community focused on word of mouth, so what better way to recruit new members than referrals and recommendations from friends?
