Have you joined SheSpeaks? It’s a great “word-of-mouth marketing” program that invites members to try new products, review them, and help spread the word about them. There is no catch, you simply sign-up for free and they will invite you to try new things. I got to try the Ore-Ida Steam ‘n Mash Potatoes and Emergen-C Kidz products for free (plus they gave me coupons to share). And now they’ve got a new SheSpeaks Parties program and their first party is for Haagen-Dazs ice cream
At SheSpeaks you will never be asked to buy anything or pay a fee, and they will not sell or give out your personal information. It really is a great resource to try new products. They just ask that you give them some feedback by completing short surveys. I’ve been really pleased with my experience with SheSpeaks and I hope that some of my readers are enjoying it too!
Word-of-mouth programs are a great way to try new products for free and you also will often get access to high-value printable coupons. Most are easy to participate in and don’t take much time to do so. BzzAgent probably requires the largest amount of time of the programs I know about because you have to create specific reports.
What has your experience been with SheSpeaks or other word-of-mouth marketing programs?
