BzzAgent

Just wanted to take a minute to talk to you about Bzz Agent, a program that I’ve been doing that I have found (a) gets me some cool, free products and (b) gives me an opportunity to practice my ability tell others about what I like about those cool, free products. Being able to concisely and effectively be an advocate for something is a skill that comes in handy in my line of work, and probably in just about any job.

Bzz Agent sends you a product (usually with some samples and coupons) and gives you a set of ways to “Bzz” your friends and acquaintances. And they make sure that you do it in a “transparent” way and urge you to only tell people how you truly feel, not to be a “salesman” for the product unless you like it. Then, you just let them know how you’ve been Bzzing the product. (And, yes, you do have to spell it “Bzz.”)

Like I said, it’s a good exercise…having to remember the Bzz points that I should mention, then bring them up in a way that doesn’t make it sound like I’m getting a commission. If anyone has any interest in checking out Bzz Agent, let me know and I’ll send you an invite.

So…what am I Bzzing now? Glad you asked! Nivea for Men products. They sent me the Energizing Face Scrub and the After Shave Replenishing Balm. And, in all honesty, they’ve been really great. They leave my face feeling clean and they don’t irritate my skin. I’ve even gone out and picked up another Nivea for Men product.

Hang tight and I’m sure I’ll be Bzzing you about something else soon.

Mike

Well! I get away from the blog for a while and come back to see that you've sold out to the commercial establishment. You are now a potential shill for anything you can get your hands on that's free. You've turned a blind eye to all that is decent.
God, man...where is your PRIDE!?
So-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o...when can you hook me up?
