BuzzAgent is a media network that recruits "BuzzAgents" to evaluate products and services and then share their opinions on them with people they know, and then report back to marketers on their findings. BzzAgent has over a quarter million member agents, and uses the idea of word of mouth communication to generate measurable results for marketers.
Members must receive an invitation to a campaign in order to participate. Assignments usually involve testing merchandise and coupons for free samples or rebate offers are often awarded.
Nothing but praise for this sample company. They are quick to respond and honest in their communications. There samples are full size and the surveys are quick and painless. If you enjoy full size samples and sharing that information with your communication circles, then BzzAgent is good Bzz. I highly recommend BzzAgent and have referred a few friends / people.
I have been 'with' this site for several years now and they have always been honest. No scams at all, I have always gotten my products and there is always someone to contact is or when you need to.
When I first joined BzzAgent I thought I hit the jackpot of all survey sites. I got invites to nearly every campaign that came out, all the time I was receiving packages filled with a bunch of products, it was so much fun. It has now been about 2 years since I've received an invite. It's like they literally forgot about me altogether. Every once in a great while I log into the site to make sure I'm still a member and my score is about 1.8 and they keep making me retake all the surveys about household needs/wants/like...etc. I really don't understand what happened.
I do not get the high ratings.
It took like 3 months until I received the first "campaigns". The first 3 were clearly bs.
- a free trial to redbox instant that is free anyway
- coupons for claritin
- sign up to a free portal
My score is now 7.4 of 10.
The good thing is that you get points from mypoints.com for your reviews etc.
The bad is that you have to pretty much spam all of your friends and have to put in a lot of time for writing reviews, twitter posts, facebook posts etc.
Given that in other portals you also receive products to test (for the "price" of 1 follow up survey for which you get paid as well as the initial survey) that is not really great.
I will stick around for some more time and see if I get some decent campaigns.
For a box of cereals or a redbox trial the effort is to big.
If you are not into social media forget this portal as you will never get a good score that you need to receive campaigns.
Rate and test great products from companies...very pleased for over a year...
