Bzz-agentHave you heard of BzzAgent?

Bzz Agent is a word-of-mouth marketing company.  You sign up, fill out your demographic information, take the occasional survey and if you’re demographics match up with a client, you might be invited to join a “campaign”.

Sometimes you get a box with the product, sometimes you get coupons for a FREE or heavily discounted product.  You will always be given informational cards and occasionally coupons or even samples to hand out to friends and family as you Bzz.

All Bzz Agent asks you to do is try the product and tell people about it, good or bad.  Then you report back to Bzz.  The more Bzz you create, the higher your ranking which leads to more opportunities to Bzz.  Nice little circle, huh?  (In case you’re wondering, you do not have to be a blogger to participate.)

Since 2005, I’ve  tried bug repellents and dish detergent and mascara.  I’ve gotten a Sonicare Toothbrush,  Take 5 Candy Bars, and even some anti-aging cream (ahem, not that I need that sort of stuff).  However, my favorite Bzz Agent campaign was my KINDLE!

Have you heard of Smiley 360?  It’s a social community for people who love trying products, very similar to Bzz Agent, one of the other consumer product test sites to which I belong.

Companies hire Smiley 360 to do their market research for them and frequently offer samples or full-size products in the hopes of receiving feedback.

I’ve received Children’s Advil, Campbell’s Slow Kettle Soups, and Pam Cooking Spray, to name a few, plus coupons to hand out to friends and family.

Product Review: UNREAL Candy Bzz Agent campaign

Bzz Agent, a word-of-mouth consumer product testing company, recently asked me to try a new type of candy.  It’s called UNREAL.  The candy does not have artificial colors, flavors, corn syrup, or hydrogenated oils.  As they put it, their candy is “unjunked”.

Bzz Agent sent me a coupon for a free product and several BOGO coupons to hand out to friends.  So I bought some of the UNREAL candies and unveiled them at a recent Girls’ Night Out.

First up was the UNREAL version of Peanut and Plain M&Ms.  The colors of the candies are darker and more intense than the familiar red, green, orange, etc.   The UNREAL brand was definitely more flavorful, probably because they used things like beet juice for coloring. The general consensus amongst my 7 friends was that we would buy these again.

Then, it was on to the UNREAL Chocolate Caramel Bar and the Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat Bar.  After debating for a few minutes, we decided that the word we wanted to use was dry to explain how the chocolate coating tasted.  Like if you had a really old Snickers bar and tried to eat it.  No one was very impressed, just an “all right”.

Finally, we tried the UNREAL Peanut Butter Cups which are akin to Reeses.  The chocolate was moist and much more flavorful than their more famous counterpart.  Everyone that tried this type of candy agreed that they might purchase it again.

Overall, a mixed experience, but we all agreed that UNREAL’s premise was good.  Less junk in our junk food is a good thing, even if it didn’t hit the target on all attempts.
